It takes a little time to get into the story, but the second half and ending are riveting! Loved it!
But I have to tell you that would be a good book genre mashup. On the whole I got what I expected a reasonably entertaining story with plot holes and strange turns. Logan's Run or even Soylent Green - now there is scifi!
1.) The story was good. 2.)The reader's performance was excellent. 3.) For a person who loves and needs long stories to listen to while performing menial task, This series was just what the doctor ordered!!!
After listening to Hunger Games, I finished the two final books in a 2 week period. I listened as much as possible and was pulled into the story. I really enjoyed how the author continued to build out the characters and depicted the internal strife so well. I highly recommend this series!
Just when I thought it will be a Harry Potter-like model all over again - the same structure of the story (summer, train, school, end of school year in HP, here - life in the districts, game announcement, games and post-games), the book turns itself into "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"! You have to read the last installment, since "Catching Fire" ends in a massive cliff-hanger. After several weeks you can even forget there the 2nd book ends and the last one begins in the story.
You will enjoy it. I flew through it in 2 (working!) days on my way to the great ending
yes i was super sad when one of the characters that i liked died and made me almost cry
I am constantly on the road and a voracious reader, so audiobooks are a must!
This story picks up approximately 6 to 9 months after the end of The Hunger Games. We follow Katniss and Peeta as they adjust to life back in District 12, and as they prepare for and experience the Quarter Quell - a special anniversary edition of the Hunger Games at the Capitol. The novel is excellently written - the pacing is fast, the characters deep, and the story itself is riveting. There is a particular scene in District 11 which takes place during the victory tour that almost brought tears to my eyes. It has an explosive ending which leads directly into Book 3. The narration is excellent and the production itself is superb. Get this amazing follow up to The Hunger Games.
No. the narrator.
No one memorable moment, just lots of good ones.
At first, she made Katniss sound like 50 yrs old. The inflection on emotion is way off. Voices were ok but inconsistent.
I am a man. I only tear slightly.
I think I will be reading the final book, not listening to it.
