Great job narrating by a fine actress, Caroly McCormick did a terrific job.
I listened to all the Hunger Games series with Carolyn McCormick narrating. I would definately listen to more books on tape by her.
The storyline takes a somewhat interesting point in the beginning of the book, but it ends up in a repetition of the first part.
Don't know yet.
It was similar to first book (not quite as good), very entertaining
Her voice sounds a bit monotonous at first, but then she is able to get you into each of the characters easily. And her narration is very clear. I enjoy it very much
The end of this book is not a true end, you will want to start Book #3 immediately; and book #3 is not as good
It is a fun story and hard to put down. Leaves you wanting more. As an older reader, I can see the potential for a deeper, more epic tale in these YA books. Don't get me wrong, I love this series. But oh...what it could have been if written as a more adult style fiction.
Great audibook, totally worth the time and money. The narrator was great, the content was wonderful and Audible's audio quality and delivery was fantastic. Highly recommend!!
I would prefer to read it, but the audio edition was fantastic, too. I had a long car trip in July--750 miles--and was entertained across Washington state by the exciting story in Catching Fire. Very well performed and just as wonderful as book 1, which I enjoyed on paper.
Katniss was my favorite character, of course. Her voice is strong and we see all the action through her eyes. I gathered a new appreciation for Peeta and his wise calculations to save Katniss.
Yes....just not possible.
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.
