I was skeptical of the direction this was taking, but again, I was pleasantly surprised. It does follow the typical three act play structure. This is darker and more angst ridden than Hunger Games. Definitely left me hungry for book 3!
It is a simple story that allows you to become part of it. There are soooo many
Carolyn allows you to become part of the book.
Yes, and we did... the whole series.
I was so pleased that Carolyn McCormick narrated the second and third Hunger Games books. I loved her in The Hunger Games and she continues to bring the characters to life here. I enjoyed the book as well, although it ends in a cliff-hanger, so I'm glad that I had the third book ready to go!
Single mom of two BEAUTIFUL girls and working full time. Never enough hours in the day for myself. Loving Audible!
Again I was drawn in and couldn’t stop listening. This book has a twist that really sets you off. Great read/listen and great narration. I cannot wait for the movies to come out. Even thought I know they won’t be as good as the books!
Loves reading books, but have limited time. So audible presents a perfect solution for me!
I have not read the print version, but the audio edition of the book was extremely good. I listen to the book in traffic and it was finished half way home. As soon as I arrived home I grabbed my computer and bought the final installment of the trilogy.
The Hunger Games wa the first book I listened too, but Cathcing Fire was just as good.
Yes, and she does an excellent job in both of the hunger games books I have purchaed.
Catnis Everdeen takes on the Capitol and once again devies the odds.
Really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to anyone. I cannot wait to start listening to the final book.
not by the same author
depressing, the main character is bloodied in every way possible, its exhusting, makes you believe she is not human, takes you out of the story
escaping the hunger games again, reunited with family
This is an excellent series. Once again I could not stop until I heard the whole thing. My only concerns about the book was the ending. It just dropped off too quickly without much resolution. Which made me immediately have to purchase the last book. I guess that is what the author wanted but since the third book picks up with some time lapsed, I feel a little more resolution could have been given to the characters at the end.
If you read the first one you absolutely have to read the second and then the third...
The Hunger Games...obviously.
When Katniss' bridal goes up in flames while she twirls on stage, revealing an elegant, black feather Mockingjay ballgown in its place. Flawless description. If this novel is made into a movie and the costumer(s) cannot get this dress right, I will leave the theater in disgust!
If I had the time, YES!!
Can't wait to get finished so I can go on to Mockingjay, the last book in the trilogy!
I love the authors realistic portrayl of Katnisis. She is a hero but she is flawed.
When they find out that they have to go back into the arena.. you just want to fall apart with them.
I cannot wait for the movie adaptation of these books!
