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.
Found the first book a lot more interesting and the story was a lot more complex. This book was ok but too much emphasis on the political side of Katniss' country than her personal story. It was writen by the same recipe as the first book. Doesn't compell me to download the third book though. I think Carolyn McDomick does an excellent job reading it and have no criticism at all about her performance.
Yes. Thought he book was a good follow to Hunger Games. Good story.
All was good

Yes. We listened on a drive and could not wait for each part.
What can I possibly say about the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy that you haven't already heard during the promotion of the Hunger Games movie? Well, I can say that I enjoyed it as much as the Hunger Games. Collins continues the story of Katniss and Peeta taking us further into the darkness of the Hunger Games ensuring us that even winning isn't what we hoped. Katniss finds herself suddenly thrust into a role she never imagined as she and Peeta are taken on their Victory Tour of the Districts only to feed the fire of revolution that has been burning only as embers until now.
If you thought the Hunger Games was brutal, dark and somewhat hopeless, Catching Fire will not change your mind. But as your anger grows against the Capital, you begin to feel Katniss' pain and indecision; her fear and anger; her love and hate.
I highly recommend this audio book but only if you have listened to the Hunger Games first. As the second part of a trilogy, you'd be lost without the foundation provided by the first book.
I found the narration pleasant. Carolyn McCormick does a great job telling the story in first person. I found no distractions in her voice, tone or pronunciation. (And no sighs or deep breaths during the reading as well. Big Bonus!).
Good story, enjoy this narrator
If you liked the first one this is more good stuff
I really enjoyed the 2nd Installment of this series. It took no time at all to ramp up the urgency with Snow's ultimatum to Katniss. You can sympathize with Katniss as she tries to decide between flight or fight. The design of the 2nd arena is genius. I love how all of the characters grow and their relationships get more defined. It is a very emotional story and again it dragged a lot out of me. I love Katniss as a heroine ( or hero period ). For some reason I have cared about her more than any protaganist in any book that I have read so far.
Don't stop with the first book, carry on and pick this title up!
Carolyn McCormick does a great narrative, she is easy to understand and has good emotion. Again, the only beef, is it could have been done by someone younger, but she does a really good job.
Yes! The storyline was fresh and enthralling. It kept my attention and left me wanting more.
I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. I didn't feel like I was being read to. I felt like I was part of the story. It was effortless and kept me on the edge of my seat!
I listen to audiobooks during my commute (one hour each way) everyday. I found myself wanting to sit in the parking lot and continue listening. Many times I would continue listening on my ipod while I did household tasks such as laundry or cooking. I could not break away!!
attention grabbing action
The mysteries of who and what were safe or dangerous
First entering the quarter qwell
The narrator and story kepy my interest with many twists.
It stands alone
Cannot wait for the movie and listen to the next installation.
