"Hunger Games" has interesting characters, plus lots of action and plot twists.. It reminds me of the Ray Bradbury and the "Dragon" book series I've read. The author uses wonderful descriptive words that make me feel like I am transported with the heroine to the arena. I have almost completed the entire series which makes me sad because I've gotten to see the main characters grow and mature. This book is a must read for any age group!
Just finished the trilogy and LOVED it. I am not a teen or huge sci-fi fan, but the writing and narration on this one pulled me in from the beginning. Can't wait for the movie.
I first read the book, and bought the audiobook so my husband could listen to it. I love the story and thought the narrator did a great job. Looking forward to listening to the next two books.
The book starts really quick and pulls you into it rather fast. The narrator is very good and her voice seems to become more entwined into the story. I'm in my thirties and loved the book. It took me about a week to get through it and thoroughly enjoyed it. I listen to audio books in transit and found myself taking longer to get to places so that I can just hear a little more of the story. Gripping. I rated the book a 5 even though there was a small discrepancy in detail which certainly goes to show how entertaining it was. I will definitely get the rest of the books in the series!
This is a fabulous series!!!! It is a must-read for all ages. This story and characters will suck you in and not let you got until the end! I read all three books in 2 weeks. By far the best story I have read!!!
The excellent narration by Carolyn McCormick will take you on an incredible journey. The story line is engaging and thought provoking and makes you wonder if this could happen. Though the relationships portrayed are a little predictable, you can't help but fall in love with Katness, Peeta, Prim, Rue and how they all intertwine. Well done! I look forward to the next one...
This book kept my whole family (my husband and me, three high-schoolers and a fifth grader) spellbound for an entire two-day car journey. When we arrived, the kids wanted to stay in the car in the hotel parking lot to listen to the last ten minutes of the story. It really is just that exciting. We have been fighting over readership of the three printed novels ever since.
i live in the kentucky bluegrass and enjoy coffee in the morning while listening to a great book.
I gave this listen five stars because I felt it was fantastically written, kept my attention and caused me to fall in love with many of the characters. However, I did not enjoy this book. I'm a mother of four young children and the thought of them fighting to the death bothered me. Really? This is what the world would come to? I don't know. I would like to think that our race is smarter than that. Like I said, I'm giving it five stars because it's really a GREAT book and really is meant for the younger crowd...I think I just found myself getting too emotionally wrapped up in it. I did read the next book but stopped at the final book. Enough is enough. ha.
