Catching Fire

The most recent novel that I have read is Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. It is the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy, a relatively new young adult series that I was introduced to in my Children’s Literature class last semester. I love this book because it is riveting. I have never been so enthralled by a piece of literature as I am with this book. Every chapter has a twist at the end and I would often find myself skipping to the end of the chapter just to see what happens. I literally could not put this book down. The book is about a future dystopia, in which the main characters inadvertently start a revolution that changes the fate of world. I enjoy this book because it contains the elements of many different genres of literature including romance, science fiction and suspense. One of my favorite parts of the book comes at the very end (don’t worry, this won’t ruin the ending for anyone), when Katniss, one of the main characters, realizes what she means to the revolution.
“’We had to save you because you’re the mockingjay, Katniss,” says Plutarch. “While you live, the revolution lives.” The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.” (Collins, p.386-387).
