Guest reviewers Will D. and Phillip E. on The Hunger Games Trilogy

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins is the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. She has a lot of other books and book series like The Underland Chronicles. This novel is an action packed book that brings you into the futuristic world of what used to be called North America, but is now called Panem. The main character in Catching Fire is a girl named Katniss. She narrates through out the novel and keeps the story very exciting. This is an amazing novel and I recommend it to anyone at any age. This is the kind of story that will keep you turning the pages no matter how late it is at night.
From Will D.

I would rate Mocking Jay a seven out of a possible ten points because it had some good action, but the story line was more difficult to follow compared to the first book in the trilogy, Hunger Games. I also did not like it as well as the second book in the trilogy, Catching Fire. This book was more explanatory instead of the action-packed first two books. It also seemed the author was more trying to wrap up the series instead of write a good story line. I definitely recommend the first book in the trilogy. The second and third books in the series were okay, although I enjoyed the second more than the third. In all three she did a great job developing the characters so I had a very strong connection with them.
