Rue. She was so young and vulnerable and clearly the victim of her circumstance and time.
Her voice and how she enunciate the words to evoke a other-worldly time of history. Brought out many facets of Katniss' personality.
My husband and I are not sure we can handle the next book.
The Hunger Games is much better than others! (I've only listened to a few books though)
I was never lost/left in the dust to figure out terminology on my own – the story had a strange but powerful way of balancing definition, reminiscing, and present action.
As with any listening in comparison to reading, I feel more free to visualize the story.
YES! But I sadly had to stop a few times!
Odd how District 12 is not really fantasy...sounds frighteningly similar to a certain North Korea. I hope this trilogy causes young people to seriously consider the world around them.
Riveting, exciting, and unique!
It is futuristic and reminds me of books by Margaret Atwood, but also makes me think of the short story The Most Dangerous Game.
No, but I thought her performance was very good.
Yes, most definitely!
Although i'm not a fan of sci-fi/fantasy books, I thought i'd give this book a listen since it came so heavily recommended. Little did I know i'd be sucked into the book so much!! I couldn't wait to see what would happen next!! As the last lines were read, i hungered for more, so I downloaded the sequels!!! Awesome, awesome!!! A must have!!!
Wow! From the moment I started listening I could not stop!! I literally cancelled plans so I could stay home to finish this! At first I did not love the narraters voice, but it grew on me!
One of the best stories I've ever read/heard. The plot is incredible, the literature devine, and the performance unsurpassed. I enjoyed this so thoroughly that I never wanted it to end. I had to give myself some time to grieve over the end of the story and to say goodbye to characters I came to love.
Looked at this book for months and kept thinking I wanted to read this book but when I'd read about it I just couldn't imagine that I'd like it when it says kids are picked to fight to the death...well, it's a must read and you are taken in from the moment it starts. I have told 2 other people who ended up finishing the series before me and they were swept away. Put this one on the top of your list and read it before the movie comes out in March...can't wait for it all to come alive on the screen.
This a wonderful series. The reader was great not overly showy or too many weird voices.
All of it.
I'm not sure if I have heard her read before.
It only took me two days to finish it.
My son (38 years old biological age and 18 years old heart age) recommended this trilogy. I started reading this book and I called him and said "this is fantasy, you know that is not my cup of tea" and he said "go on reading for a while more and then decide". He was absolutely right. It is really difficult to put it down until you have read all three books. You can give it a different meaning as a metaphor for our current life or you can just enjoy it as a great story, which is what I did. EXCELLENT!!
The story itself is quite good, and I've been consistently impressed with both the pace and realism.
One of the best readings I've found on audible after 2 years of consistent listening.
I am always finding opportunities to listen and often catch myself making up excuses to throw on my headphones.
