Catching Fire
Suzanne Collins
By: Kaci Caudill
The setting mainly takes place in three different locations. The first location is Katniss and Peeta's home in district tweleve. This is were President Snow comes and talks to Katniss about the uprisings. This is also were Gale was whipped for killing a turkey, and where Katniss meets the two girls from district eight, that are going to search for district thirteen. The second setting takes place in the capitol. In the capitol is were Peeta says that Katniss is pregnant to try to help save her, and where Katniss meets the other victors from the other districts. The third setting takes place in the Quarter Quell arena. This is where the bombing and lightning show takes place, and where Katniss tries to save Peeta and were Peeta tries to save her. Many things happen in the arena like Johanna taking the tracker out of Katniss's arm and Finnick saving Peeta after being electrocuted by the force field. Those are the main settings to the book Catching Fire.
When the novel opens, Katniss is hunting in the woods, thinking about how much she doesn't want to go on the annual Victory Tour. Every victor of the Games must visit each district to celebrate their win at the Games. After hunting, she returns home so she can ensure she is ready in time for the Tour, only to find that President Snow, the leader of Panem, is waiting to speak with her.

Snow tells Katniss that she needs to convince both him and Panem while on the Tour that she is in love with Peeta or the Capitol will go after her and Gale's families. According to Snow, Katniss' stunt with the berries was too rebellious. Though some people believe she was proposing suicide because she was so insane with love for Peeta, others think it was an act of defiance. Some of Panem's districts are now on the brink of rebellion. If Katniss can convince everyone she is without a doubt in love with Peeta, Snow will spare her family's lives.
The characters in the story are-

President Snow
Katniss' family
Other Victors
One of the conflicts it that Katniss and Peeta are forced back into the arena for the 75th Hunger Games. She tries her hardest to get peeta out of the arena alive instead of herself. The second conflict is the rise of the rebellion, Katniss has to worry about doing what the capitol says. If she doesn't, she will be at risk of getting everyone she loves, killed.
One of the themes in Catching Fire is interdependence vs. independence. Interdependence means when two people are mutually depending on each other. Independence is when someone it acting alone, free of control. In Catching Fire, Katniss and Peeta are definitely interdependence. They are both helping each other to survive. As a matter of fact, they want the other one to survive more than they do themselves. They are actually putting themselves in more danger because they are trying to help each other win in the arena. Independence is not really a factor in Catching Fire although Katniss wants to be independent. She shows this time and again though her thoughts and her feelings when she is back from the Hunger Games as a victor at the beginning of Catching Fire, and she wants to continue her life the way it was before--hunting with Gale and providing food for her mother and sister. Her life of independence is over when she wins the Hunger Games at the end of the first book. She is now interdependent on Peeta and the story they have created about their love in order to survive and save her family.
The resolution in the story is when Katniss and some of the other victors break the force field in the arena and escape.
I would recommend this book 'Catching Fire' for the people who like suspenseful stories, once I picked up book 1 I had to read the whole novel, I never wanted to put the book down.
