Yes, because of shear convenience. The story is one that has so many twists and turns that you should cover large sections at once, to get a feel for the cadence of the events. Audible makes that possible, as you don't have to be unplugged from life, staring into the book to get the story.
Haymitch is my favorite so far, as he is a combination of dangerous and comical, adding a lot to the color of the story.
She does a very good job of "not getting in the way of the story". It is, truly, an incredible story, and her talent is that her voice is soothing, her diction impeccable, and her delivery consistent. She is not very good at trying to mimic the various voices in the book, but her rendition of the men is not so poor as to be distracting. The huskiness her voice takes on for the men's parts does allow the listener to distinguish that someone else besides Katniss is speaking.
I would have preferred that, but just didn't have time.
Graphic designer and University professor. I love comics and to be always learning something new!
Even though we know this trilogy is a "born-bestseller-kinda-writing" I love the twist on the last books, turning the story more into the political problem, globalization, legal slavery and slashing hope... It is great entertaining, visually rich.
I already have recommended this book because America could sweep themselves into such a scenario if WE THE PEOPLE don't make conscious decisions to THINK. We are not sheep... Are we?
The characters have flaws just like all of us - but despite the flaws they fight for what is right - they fight for each other - they fight for being more than the game.
Hearing her interpretation of the characters was both entertaining and clarifying.
Panam's control over people eventually results in the people making choices of their own.
That is hard, I love them all.
I don't want to give the book away
Suzanne Collins' ability to narrate the book and the easily visible descriptions used in the book made for an easy follow.
The descriptive writing.
Great all around book ( I listened while on long runs). Hard to put down.
I don't know. I've read the first book in this triologhy in the printed version but decided to buy and listen to the audio versions of the second and the third books.
That dark feeling...
Again, great characterization, and plot. The descriptions of the game are by far and away my favorites.
The scene in District nine
Continues the story line, and does end on a cliff hanger. I immediately started the third book once this one was complete.
I started listening to audiobooks from the library while driving around in my truck and soon found myself bringing the books inside with me. Once i got an ipod the books went everywhere with me. I work with my hands so audiobooks are great for me. I now listen to audiobooks about 8 hours each day. If i am not talking to someone or at home in my chair, then i have earbuds in listening to an audiobook.
This was pretty good of course, but i sort of feel like this book was unnecessary. I was shocked how similar this one was to the first. the first 3/4 of this book should have been a few chapters, and spent the rest of the time on new material. overall i enjoyed it, but i do feel a little cheated
