The entire series was awesome! Great reader, excellent story line. I loved it from beginning to end.
Richard Bachman (Stephen King's pen name) wrote The Long Walk. I would compare the two as they are both based on a game of life and death where the purpose is for lifetime success and entertainment of the viewers.
Peter. Carolyn McCormick did a wonderful job changing her voice and making you feel that Peter was talking.
YES, but it was too long to do that. I continually looked forward to turning it back on.
The entire series is worth listening to!
Suzanne Collins has written a fun and entertaining story with this triology. She excelled at telling the story from a single perspective.
It is at the VERY top! Once I was engaged, which happened very early on, I couldn't stop listening to this book. It is brilliantly written, and well narrated. I am 33 years old and I am telling you this book is NOT just for teens. It is for all ages, and has an excellent plot, story line, and message. I am also NOT a sci-fi reader, and was a bit worried I would get bored and put this away, but it really is more than a sci-fi. It is also about life in general, a love story, day to day life, survival, mystery...it really is a lot of genres rolled up into one fabulous book.
There are several moments throughout the book. Especially how Katness handles herself when in the arena and how she and Peeta's relationship slowly changes over the course of the book.
I highly recommend this and all the books in the series to any and everyone! I promise you will be captivated!
Not at all. The narrator would define the noun
Almost every part except hearing it read out loud.
Her false accent, if you want to call it that, is way too distracting. She gets a little too weird describing the food, too (I know that's an integral theme in the book, but it shouldn't sound... sexual.) She does the forceful parts no justice, almost making a caricature of them.
Sad to see the whole series is narrated by the same person. I'm hoping she got some tips after the first and improved it - we'll see.
I couldn't stop listening. I had to know what was going to happen next. I'm already half way through the 2nd book in less then 2 days.
I read the Hunger Games trilogy as they came out years ago and spent a significant amount of time trying to make my mom read them, but she never had the time. I bought the audiobooks for her. Stuck in a car with no escape, my sister and I started the book: She was hooked by the end of the first chapter, and halfway through the book my dad and younger brother were peeved that they'd been left out. So we restarted the book and within a month had finished the entire series. Carolyn McCormick, the narrator, is less than impressive, but after a while she doesn't bother you so much anymore. The book is entrancing. Suzanne Collins effectively creates a world of fear, hunger, and distrust as well as a cast of characters that are so real and memorable that you can't avoid falling in love with them. I haven't been so passionate about a book series since Harry Potter. This is a series for the whole family, from 14 to 56. I can personally vouch for that.
We finished the book today and I have already purchased the last two books in this series. Well done, I felt like I was in the game as she was, I felt the same things she did when events turned.
appealing to animal instinct written for people who have little attention...typical, quantity of stuff in lieu of quality..... each paragraph is just another visual sensationalistic image having only for purpose to stuff the attention of the reader instead of telling a interesting story
a different author with a different story
I loved this book because I could not stop listening!
When the announcer comes over the speakers of the Hunger Games.
I love the main character, Katniss. She is so wonderful, and doesn't give herself enough credit.
I'm not creative enough for this. Maybe
