The futile fight against an overbearing government where no one can be trusted and reality is altered and manipulated by others made the philosophical backdrop of this novel distasteful to me, although the story was well crafted and the narrator did a reasonable job. I would not want a child of mine to read this story, which undermines hope.
I recommend this to anyone!
Catniss is so loveble.
I was waiting at a red light and laughing my head off out load while other drivers were giving me the look ! Priceless
Very Good Story.
Fen. Don't know why. I just really enjoyed his charater.
Just the Hunger Games trilogy. Loved the way she told the story. Wonderful voice.
Both. the Story was powerful and sad.
This book is even better than the first one!
The scene at the TV interview. SPOILER! The
This book continues the saga begun in The Hunger Games in an inventive way. The twists are unexpected, and the ending is simply a cut-off point before the real climax that will occur in Mockingjay.
My favorite scene was near the beginning when Katniss and Peeta travel to Section 11 as Victors. Their interaction with the crowd, Rue's family and the aftermath of it was surprising.
The characters are developed even further in Catching Fire, and you truly care about the fates of the main characters although the supporting cast is not well developed. After the surprises and visceral reactions in the first book, this book tries to take things a step beyond, and it isn't always successful.
The last scene where she shot the knife into the force-field
Her and Peeta having a private, normal moment doing the pictures
The story picks right up where Book 1 finished. Collins talent for telling a story is featured in the first half. A whole new cast of characters to meet and discern.
Really enjoyed the story and thought it continued well from book I, but the narrator is annoying. She talks too slow and is very stiff. She also makes Katniss sound like a little girl instead of the sarcastic teen she is written as.
Audio Books make people better drivers! I’m never in a hurry to get where I need to go because I would rather be in Tudor England, listening to a good historical fictional novel. Or I could be somewhere far away with dragons and magic, listening to fantasy. When that is too much drama, I love keeping up with fashion and girl talk with one of my favorite “chick lit” novels.
It's up there! I’ve recommended the series to many of my friend and family.
Yes, it's fast paced and one surprise after another.
I can't wait to read Mockingjay: Hunger Games trilogy, the whole story is the best ever!!!!!
