Ordinary extraordinary human
When Katniss steps in to take her sisters place knowing that her sister would not survive.
The bravery shown is extraordinary. The fact that the heroine is a girl and that she uses her intelligence to outsmart many of her adversaries is inspiring.
My son and I read this book -- we could not put it down. We were done with it and started the second book before the weekend was over.
Original ideas, I can always get behind people fighting for freedom from human monsters.
Darkness and heaviness of the book, disreguard for human life
no, she seems to shove her ideas down your throat, characters dont evolve, they just keep going through the same circle
She was great
not listen to any more Suzanne Collins books
This was my first Audible and it was excellent. I listened to it as I walke don the treadmill.Great Story
Catnis. I fell in love with this humble brave character.
Narrators Im told make or break even a good story. Wise choice. Dynamite voice.
A greta book to read at the beginning of Lent.
I have recommended this book to friends. The writing is wonderful, the story compelling and the characters engaging. This author is a great storyteller. I found myself instantly liking the characters and caring what happened to them. The story kept me riveted; I had a hard time stopping and couldn't wait to get back and find out what happened next. I never felt disappointed or bored. Carolyn McCormick is a great narrator. I think she gave Katniss in particular a maturity that helped me respect and admire her, so that I never thought about her age.
Although I know this is suppose to be in the same category as the Twilight Saga I found it completely different, Its true the main characters are teens, but I did not feel like I was reading a
My favorite scene is when Katniss volunteers to take her sister's place,although there were no scenes in the story I did not like.
There is a movie being made, which is what peaked my interest in the book (I'm not a teen or a Twilight fan). I don't remember the tag line being used, but I would say
I felt the violence was handled beautifully. Enough detail to let you know what is happening, without gratuitous gore. I never felt
I've read hundreds of books, and I consider some of them to be absolutely fantastic. This book, however, raises the bar so high that I wish I hadn't given out those five star ratings. Gripping, emotional, great world building, excellent pacing. Can not recommend enough.
I think the narrator is great too, despite what some reviewers have said.
This story grabbed me in the first 5 minutes. I would sit in my driveway for an extra 15 minutes in order to continue listening to the story. It may be written for young adults, but this old adult can't wait to listen to its sequel and see the movie.
I would recommend this to others. After much pushing from a friend, I read this book. So glad I did! Amazing!
I love how Suzanne Collins writes. She has spent most of her career in the TV industry and it definitely shows. She can draw you in with her suspense. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a good read. It isn't just for teenagers.
I read from almost every genre but I do love a good science fiction. When not listening I'm camping with my Girl Scouts, baking or at work.
This is my first audio book and the quality of it has sold me on purchasing and listening so much more.
If I had to put this on a shelf with like books, it would be right next to Lois Lowery's books
I think McCormick especially enjoyed doing the voice of Haymitch. His gruffness tuly came through.
The collaboration between Katniss and Rue was delightful. It was as if the two blossomed into believing they were capable of anything. When Rue was killed so abruptly, it came as such a shock and Katniss' reaction was so touching.
It leaves you wanting more. What a fantastic and imaginative story. The narrator is fantastic.
