First look at Catching Fire!Aug 26th, 2009 | By Alex | Category: Book News, Fandom, Featured Articles
Do you want to read the first two chapter of CATCHING FIRE, The Hunger Games sequel? Well here is your chance!
On Sept. 1, fans of last year’s young adult best-seller The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, will get their hands on the much-anticipated second installment of a planned trilogy, Catching Fire. The New York Times called Hunger Games “brilliantly plotted and perfectly paced.” Stephen King, in Entertainment Weekly, praised it for generating “nearly constant suspense.”
In The Hunger Games, 24 teenagers, selected by lottery from the 12 districts of a post-apocalyptic American republic, fight to the death in an annual contest that draws its inspiration equally from the Roman Coliseum and Project Runway. The winning strategies of our heroine, Katniss Everdeen, signal her defiance of the harsh central government that mandates the games — and earn her the authorities’ wrath.
In the second book, Katniss becomes the symbol that sparks a rebellion. This exclusive, pre-release excerpt — the novel’s Chapter 2 — sets the drama in motion. The setting is Katniss’ new home in the Victor’s Village neighborhood of her native district.
