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!
This book is a "tweener" as it has to bridge 1 and 3 and does so well. The author is so good at character development and consistently keeps characters in their "character." This book is definitely worth listening to as a follow-up to book 1, but it is not quite as good. Listen to it anyway!
I kept on reading and couldn't put it down. The action is fantastic and the character development is superb. I loved these kids and was in awe of their ability to adapt. I don't know what I would do in a situation like that, but I sure wouldn't be as resourceful. This book really follows thru without having the dry "fill-in" feeling that a lot of middle books in a series do. I recommend this book to anyone, especially our youth. Life is a struggle and you can come out of it with honor!
This book was a far take from the lighter fare of many "sci-fi" books. The characters are deep with a lot of development that seems to come easy to the author. The story is at times disturbing, but in an appropriate way, not just for the sake of gore or violence. It all has purpose and makes the book all come together. The whole series was like that, deep and appropriate. It is not a light, fluffy book, so take it on as such, but it is very good.
Mags walking into the fog.
She performs all characters well and delivers a believable story.
My husband...who has little interest in books...has been tuning out sports radio and walking around the house with his headset on so he can listen to more of the story (I suspect he may be drivng around aimlessly as well). Need I say more?!
