Yes, I'll recommend this to others. I listen to many books, since I'm handicapped and can't read for more than 8 minutes.
Though the book was very suspenseful, a cliffhanger almost. Romance, drama and suspense beautifully intertwined.
can't think of any. But it is certainly for people that prefer listening to sci-fi and suspense.
I will admit liking her more in the first book, but the second one was very good as well.
on a couple of instances, I paused and re-listen what was read. Interesting, I guess.
It leaves most people wanting to listen to the next book. I usually listen to the old ones at the local library... my son & his fiancee gave me this subscription for my birthday. What a wonderful gift! now I can keep up with most people.
I love the trilogies easy to follow, quick moving story line. Never a dull moment.
The narration sounds very mature, too refined and slow, while the main character in the story is a teenage girl. I don't think this was a good fit and have opted to read rather than listen to the third book in the series.
Yes. I loved this book. It was my favorite one of the series.
I love Peeta. He is very complex and suprising.
Character depth and development , story flow and pace..
no character depth whatsoever, long senseless introduction into II Games( nothing of significance for the story or characters really happened ) - crammed ending, implausible plot twists...
no. she is perfect for kids up to 12 yrs, not for adults, though.
Her bedtime-story-like exaggerated narration addend to my the overall feeling of dissatisfaction.
The whole ending. from the arena wall explosion on...
Visit of President to CAt's home ( what was that??!?!)
Story had a nice potential, but due to superficial style of writing had no chance. Remember that this is a Young Adults book. Emphasis on YOUNG!
I thought this series would be amazing. So much hype from so many people. But I felt it fell flat. It got predictable, and I found that I didn't care wether Katness lived. The voices sound too much like each other, and it got too detailed in parts that didn't matter. Too many characters, and not a believable story. If the writer herself were a teen I'd be impressed, but not impressed as an accomplished author. I didn't love this series, but I didn't hate it so much that I I shut it off. Did find myself tuning out too much though, and I was not sad that it ended.
I like to stay abreast of what my kids are reading, and never cease to be amazed at the quality of what is being written for this age group now - far better than a lot of the rubbish I was served as a child! This is a well crafted and well executed novel, and the narrator does a great job conveying all the myriad emotions in the story.
Catnis, everything I wish I had been at her age, smart, loyal and logical
When the games ended, and how Catnis concludes them (no spoiler here!)
Dont do it! The film was rubbish.
Both can be completely enjoyable. How much time I have determines if a book is a sit and read or listen on the go.
There were several moments of, "Oh my Gosh!" and "What's next?.
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~!
