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!!!!!
All 3 books in The Hunger Games trilogy are proverbial page-turners. Fantastic & creative plots, well-written, well performed. But the content is about some of the ugliest, most violent sides of human nature, so it's not cheerful or uplifting.
Having said that, because the books are written for youth, the language is clean & there's no explicit sex. There is a wonderful love triangle that is only resolved at the very end of the trilogy, in Mockingjay. Throughout the 3 books, there's meaty, thought-provoking content, worthy of consideration & discussion by both adults & youth.
These are books worth reading, but don't read them if you're in a funk. Life during & around the Hunger Games is challenging & exhausting, & reading about it shares some of that exhaustion. Despite that, I kept reading & reading & reading & hated to see it end.
Unfortunately, the story line begins to really deteriorate after Hunger Games. The conflicts are repetitive, and the main charcter goes from a resourceful and interesting person to just another stupid, emotional teenage girl. She's an idiot, and the male characters aren't, which I found extremely annoying. Read the first one, but skip numbers 2 and 3.
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
Enjoyed both books and cannot wait to listen to the final book. The book pulls you in and keeps your attention through the whole thing. I would actually listen to them again.
Enjoyable listen. Suzanne Collins and Carolyn McCormick get and keep your attention on this great sci fi series. I always enjoy multiple actor performances best, but Carolyn did a great job. Looking to get the final installment soon.
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
