Loved it, and 'read' it almost non-stop while cleaning the house, never before has the house looked so clean. I even got grumpy when anyone interrupted me. I found it to be fantastically narrated, and the storyline was constantly changing and gripping, loved every second! Highly recommended. Starting the second book now, and look forward to what is in store in the next one!
I'm a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy, and this series has not disappointed. I was a little hesitant in starting the series since it's marketed as "young adult" (and I was basing my young adult reading experience on the twilight series- which I found tiresome), but I found the Hunger Games to be well-written, intelligent and incredibly enjoyable. I also really enjoyed the narrator. I'm almost finished with the third and final book in the series and all have been great.
I need audiobooks that are gripping from the start, and this series was. I really enjoyed it. Great escapism fun.
Especially geared toward teen readers. Captivating tale about a futuristic radical society with annual gladiator type fighting to the death games for teens. Entertaining fiction but a bit predictable.
A must read!!! Very engaging, I couldn't put the book down! And I fell in love with Peeta!
If you go into it looking for what it is (light, entertaining), you will find it. I enjoyed it and went on to listen to the full trilogy. (The second one is the weakest.)
I LOVED IT.
Note: I thought this was a kids book? I wouldn't really think a book about kids killing each other was suitable for children. Teenagers I guess is ok. I don't have kids..
The emotional rollercoaster you are put on from start to finish was so beautifully done! I truly enjoyed the story and could not wait to listen to book 2 and 3.
