Carolyn McCormick has really done it again for me. Her voice really captures all the emotion that goes on in Catching Fire, and I'll be looking forward to hear Mockinjay!
I enjoyed the process of characters overcoming dystopia environment.
Hearing the format of the 75th anniversary games was surprising.
No favorite scene, enjoyed strength of characters.
It was too much of a young adult read to listen to for extensive periods.
Will complete the series because my students have all read it.
Hunger Games continued
Yes and no... I thought this was the weakest book in the trilogy. It is too similar to its predecessor to be a 5 star book, but it is a good listen and is helpful if you plan to listen to Mocking Jay. Which is a great story as is Hunger Games.
A great read
Loved it while driving
Shure, I think everyone should read the whole series. This is exactly
where Agenda 21 will take everyone.
Still an excellent read even for a 51 year old! But, wish I knew more about some characters and then felt left hanging and now waiting for the next book.....
Aging dyslexic addicted to audible
I started this series way after the movie and the hype... but now I can see how it became so popular. The narrator is great and makes pressing pause hard for me. Though there is no magic or wizards, the world and life styles depicted in the story remind me of Harry Potter. I can not stop thinking about the characters.
I've done some crying
worth your time
A nice second book in the series, but unfortunately she chose to end it as a clear set-up to the third book. More interesting characters added to survivors of the Hunger Games group and a good storyline. Only complaint is the way the book ends, but it gets you to buy book three right away.
Absolutely! The story line is addicting right from the start so you naturally have to continue on from the first book all the way through to the end of the third. I was also impressed with Carolyn McCormick changing her voice for each character and being able to hold to that throughout the entire series.
Suzanne Cook paints a very vivid word picture, so being able to see this story unfolding in my mind was easy. I enjoyed the detail that she provided about the characters, their surroundings and history that made understanding the trials and tribulations so much easier. (So much of this was lacking in the movie but movies are only allowed to be so long.)
Katniss Everdeen was my favorite. The 'voice and tone' used by Carolyn McCormick throughout the series allows you to really know Katniss, her thoughts, her heart. It's great to see a young lady display this type of 'take charge' attitude with regard to taking over the responsibilities of her family after her father's death due to her mother's inability to do so due to her own personal grief. Even after winning the first Hunger Game, she never changes her personality and allows the Capital's way of life to swallow her up. Her focus remains the same; protecting and taking care of her family and those closest to her.
Yes! I wanted to kill President Snow myself. I laughed and cried at different times throughout the series.
While the author has done a fabulous job, I'd like to especially thank Carolyn McCormick for her talents in performing this series. I've already begun shopping for other books that she's performed.
Great to see the progression of the story. More action and introduction to a whole new world/arena.
Not a big fan of the narrator's voice and style unfortunately but it doesnt take away hugely from the adventure/story.
