I really enjoyed this book as a 30-something listener. Look forward to the rest of the series.
This was an amazing novel. I loved the first installment in the Hunger Games Trilogy. I huger games was an interesting book with a cliff hanger at the end. I will say i was not the only fan to the book store the minute its sequel was released. I was pleasantly surprised with the Novel and found it was totally unexpected. Even after hearing the plot-line from a friend who had acquired a ARC copy of the novel i was still greatly surprised with many of the things in the novel. I overall believe this was a sequel that does not disappoint but will surprise beyond belief.
I enjoyed this book almost as much as I enjoyed the first. One thing to note; this isn't the kind of series where you can skip the first book and have the second book make much sense; the drama in Catching Fire relies heavily on some of the character relationships introduced in the first book, The Hunger Games.
Both books are essentially young adult fiction; the protagonist is a 16 year old girl, but the world she lives in is brutal and jarring.
Overall, an engaging listen with a great narrator.
If you loved "Hunger Games" than you will love this! "Catching Fire" was an amazing sequel to the "Hunger Games". I didn't think I would like this one as much because I totally loved the first one. I was very surprised at how much I loved this book! It really makes you want to read Book 3!! It has alot of the same elements as the first book and leaves alot open for Book 3!! I work at a library and not only to the kids love this series, but the adults do too!
If it leaves you wanting more, it can't be all that bad, can it? I can hardly wait for the next book! Love the characters!
I loved "Hunger Games" so much I recommended it to my kids. They loved it so much we bought the book and it has been passed around all over the high school. "Catching Fire" is JUST AS GOOD!!!!
I'd recommend it to young adults and "older" young adults.
This book left me waiting for more. It definitely builds on the last one and I like this series even more than the Gregor books.
This is the best series I have ever read, and I am a big fan of twilight & HP! It brings out such passion in you, I can't wait for the next one to come out!!! It left me on the edge of my seat, and I could just feel the anxiety, and love and hatred of Katnis, Suzanne Kollins does a BEAUTIFUL job with this series. I wish more books were this good. I would also recomend the book Gracling by Kristin Cashor? as well.
