After what seems a year for the release of Hunger Games, the sequel, Catching Fire is soon to arrive with bolder revelations and unexpected chills that will surely glued everyone to their seats. Fans of the movie will appear back to the killer game that started it all.
Good thing, I did finish the 2nd book of Hunger Games trilogy satisfied and astonishment filled. I can’t wait to watch the motion pictureand envisage the characters sucking the enemies with their oh-so gutsy spirit on a hell-like battle for survival.
I was deeply carried away when I finished the last chapter of the book. It sort of a reminder of the success Harry Potter embraced. The overflowing creativity of the author surfaces on another journey of Katniss and Peeta together with their mentors and other memorable characters.
Still speechless and can’t get enough of what I’ve read, let me share some insights readers and audience will expect to the most awaited Catching Fire.
Let the Game Begins
As the Quarter Quell starts for another tremendous opening of 75th Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta were again forced to return to arena. Achievers of previous games will gather to bout for death and glory. The rules of the competition become stricter; challenges become even harder. There’s huge chance of dying and less probability in winning. In the end, it’s always a sole tribute who will bring home the bacon.
The greater risks welcome all tributes leaving the odds less favorable on our protagonists. Their enemies target them as prey whereas they quarry their rivalries.
However, chaos in other districts threatens the Capitol: thus, perceiving the upheaval as wreaking havoc against the government. Katniss sees escapism as an answer to her fears by turning away from President Snow’s dictatorship on the games and controlling her personal life.
Unstoppable suspense, almost realistic fighting tricks and intense exploitation written in imaginative details are some of the must-watch aspects of the movie.
New Characters: Friends or Foes?
In addition to Hunger Games team are the preamble of fresh individuals like Finnick Odair, Wiress and Beetee, Plutarch Heavensbee, Enobaria and many other known on their belligerent skills and innovative talents. These renowned figures will likely bring luck or failure to our main characters while Katniss struggles to kill each of them.
Love Knows No Boundaries
Torn between two lovers is really a box office sale in every story. Before, Katniss was determined to win the Hunger Games to come back alive for her family and childhood friend turned sweetheart, Gale. This time, she planned to sacrifice her life in return to save Peeta; which could also reveal hurting and leaving Gale behind.
There were abundance of sweet thoughts exchanged during the toughest moments of Katniss and Peeta. We’ll recognize an unusual kind of love team here. No more pretensions, guilt and feelings to hide any longer. The star crossed lover of District 12 is finally unleashing the true colors of their emotions. And what the love affair once been tagged as simply a “show” to audience became their fighting armor to undermine their adversaries and defeat the game alive.
The question is, would Katniss’ decision suffice the fate awaiting both herself and the one she loves? What does it really mean to give up the one who means the world to you?
Run, Katniss, Run!
Being smart is never enough to win. The games attest that even the most intelligent player will be victimized than those of practically skilled and hardship trained. Because of luring traps and deadly connivance surrounding Katniss and Peeta, sudden alliance was formed to surpass the unforeseen fatal surprises from Head Game maker. The help of these new members of the team made the trials ahead predictable and brainstorming ideas create logical possibilities of what the game was all about. Learning to hop swiftly, flight furiously, run swiftly while thinking aggressively were listed on our tributes to-do tips on enduring sadistic killings inside the field.
If we try to connect the dots of moral lessons and lucidity in arrears of the story, much deeper and reasonable huge similarities will be comparedon our today’s generation. Plainly, the author doesn’t only offer us action of fancy games putting the characters’ life to gravest danger. Reality is being defined on Katniss’ existence. The Games and Capitol portrays our present situation where everything purportedly mandated by political officials.
Get a tight grip in flying your imagination to the most provocative and adrenaline rush tournament you’ll ever read. Have a dose of actions created to exceed your limits. Be prepared and may the odds be ever in your favor.
