The continuation of Catniss and Peeta combined with the new victors in the games. I was caught up in the general feel of a subculture uprising that felt like it could blow open at anytime while the lead character remains somewhat oblivous to it all. The action felt must quicker than Hunger Games.
Hunger Games-Great prelude to Catching Fire.Girl with Dragon Tatoo-similar in how you really don't know where the story is going to go or how it's going to get there.
Book two of a great Sci-Fi, that could become all together true in a post apocalyptic Socialist America. It is a great continuation of a well written story.
I wouldn't have expected to like these books as much. My son recommended them to me. I did though. The story is great. The first book is the best like with most triology series but all three are worth the read. Can't wait to see the movie now.
Yes, it has a lot of key information to the triology. But my least favorite of the three. This is possibly because I read the first and third. I love audiobooks but the narrator did a poor job of starting and stopping. I would recommend she finish the chapter because I could tell where she stopped recording then started again.
Of course its Katniss and Peeta
yes and no. The narrator was great in the voices of most of the characters but a bit too emphatic when it came to Katniss. It really felt like she was whining instead of finding her resolve to be strong.
probably not, 90% of books made into movies are terrible
I really enjoyed this one. It does a good job of continuing from book one, and the ending (with no spoilers) does an even better job of moving into book three. The characters come to life, not just because the narrator does a good job of giving them distinct voices (and she does), but because the author has done a wonderful job of fleshing everyone out. I was dreading the ending (this isn't a bad thing--rather a good comment because the book is so superbly written) because I thought I knew where it was going, but then it surprised me and took me in a direction I wasn't expecting. Once I finished listening, though, I could look back and see the clues that set up this ending quite nicely. Overall, I highly recommend this one...after you read or listen to book 1 first, of course.
After reading the first book in this trilogy, I couldn't wait to read the second. I thought it was just as rivoting as the first. I disagree with another writer who thought the narration was horrible. I found it just the opposite and thought the narrator did a fine job of portraying the different characters. Yes, the voices were somewhat absurd sounding, but I imagined they would sound that way, after hearing what absurd characters they were (by the descriptions of just how they looked). This is an excellent book and you won't want to put it down.
This is the second book in a series of 3 books. I definitely will be listening to the last in the series as well.
However, the relationship between Katniss and Peeta gets really tiring and unsatisfying to read. I have to say though that my least favorite thing about this trilogy on audiobook is the narrator. A bit too dramatic for my taste and could she make the male characters sound any more moronic? Still, I finished the series.
