Annotation: When Katniss finds herself the poster child of the uprising against the almighty capital, she must decide whether she is going to be strong enough to stand up against the capital
Convince us to read the book: Suzanne Collins crafts the story of Katniss and of her battle with the capital with ease and precision. Her way of writing makes Catching Fire easy to read and suspenseful.
Compelling Aspect of the Book: The best aspect of the book is the emotional depth that Collins invests in her characters. She doesn't treat the things they deal with as normal occurrences, instead she acknowledges how the things Katniss (the main character) endures as very radical and emotional things that catch up with Katniss from time to time.
Comments: Though Catching Fire lived up to my standards, I still wonder how Collins will manage to expand on the uprising as extensively as desired. But in the bigger picture I'm more so happy that Catching Fire wasn't a disappointing sequel.
