Transcript of catching fire 2

By: Suzanne Collins Catching Fire Collins has been writing for children's television since 1991. She worked on Nickelodeon shows, and for preschoolers she did stories such as Little Bear and Oswald. Recently she wrote Clifford’s Puppy Days for Scholastic Entertainment. She met a man named James Proimos, who talked her into writing children's book. She then thought about the book Alice and Wonderland, and how children perceive it. Since in urban places " you are more likely to fall into a manhole than a rabbit whole". She wrote the story Gregor the Overlander, this is the first book in her fantasy/war series, The Underland Chronicles. After that series she started her nest series, The Hunger Games. This is an international best seller that will be made into a movie later on. Right now Collins is working on a children's book with James Proimos.
She lives in Conneticut with her family now Suzanne Collins The book is about Katniss who after winning the seventy-fourth Hunger Games, returned with Peeta home to district twelve. This is the poorest part of Panem. Katniss and Peeta are preparing to go on a victory tour of Panem, but haven't spoken since they won the Hunger Games. Peeta realized that Katniss's feelings for him were not there anymore but dragged on because of the front they have to put on for the capitol. After an attempt to convince the public of their love, President Snow decided to punish them in a discreet way; the Quarter Quells. This sends the victors in to fight again. You have to read the book to find out the rest. Summary Warfare

In Panem there were thirteen different districts and the capitol, with each district having their own task to do. The capital are the richest of them all followed by district one, with twelve being the poorest. District twelve didn't follow in this scale since they were a weapon making district.

The first book, Hunger Games, left the ending open to thought. There really was not an ending to Hunger Games. Catching Fire, on the other hand had me wanting to read and start the next one right away. I would recommend this book to people who love action and a lot of rising climaxes. This book will leave you on your toes, and I'm eager to read the last book. Analysis Speculative fiction
