For the performance of Carolyn McCormick it would be in my top 10 for the story itself, top 20.
Katniss and Peta are my favorites, but you have to throw in a little Hamish. The three make up a great unit. Peta is the Heart, Hamish the brains, and Katniss the Soul.
I both laughed and cried.
This is a very good and well written book! The narrator for this audio book did a wonderful job capturing Katness. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book~!
The story had unexpected twists, like the first. I thought the narrator was a bit too slow so I increased the speed a bit. It left me wanting to move on to the third in the series.
I had listened to Carolyn on the first Hunger Games book and this one was no different. She did an excellent job and I want to listen to more books narrated by her.
Just as with the first book, I could have listened to this whole book at once if I could stay awake for that long. It was excellent and hard to put down.
Listen to this book! It was very well written, and easy to listen to. I can't wait to listen to the third one.
I enjoyed this offering and the entire series. The narration is GREAT and the story is engaging and thought provoking. Well worth the listen!
I enjoyed the book, the way it was narrated and the story behing it
She did a great job
I enjoy the suspense created by the author - not knowing or being able to figure out what will happen at the end...kept me reading and wanting more....
I like the action...
Her intonations of various characters voices keep the characters separated from the words.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
This was my least favorite of the series. Necessary for the story but I felt that the story was filler to get to the final book.
I guess I would listen to it again, but it is unlikely I will. The story line became a bit too lengthy for me about three quarters of the way into the book.
The first book.
Yes. Usually good.
Interesting story. I didn't listen or read the story the first book; I viewed the DVD movie. I was surprises by the story's great acting. and the timeliness of this story. Maybe more appropriately steady content of the story. It is science fiction in great tradition of the form. Social commentaries relevant today are very pointed. Statement of the ways control and people organize themselves is great. No a book for change at all. However the book was entertaining. I will try other work from Ms. Collins. It is entertaining reading, theatrical listening.
No, but I will.
The story continues...
Not sure I would see the movie. reading and the listening always makes a better picture when the author and the actors present for me. Movies are great, but I am not as impressed by good movies as I am by good books. Part of this situation is my own education and knowledge of art forms. We are taught to write, and read. I appreciate the mechanics of writing and theatrical reading when I experience it differently than the visual movie experience. I have lot less deeper understanding in mechanics of movie story composition and presentation. But like many things in life I hope learn more about movie production and presentation composition.
