"What can I say?"
Took some time to properly get into it, but once the story started to pick up it was hard to put down. Very emotional and just perfect.
"The best trilogy I have ever read"
I was recommended to read these three books by a good friend so yes I bought them.After reading the first fifty pages in book one I was captured by the remarkable detail and the writing of Suzanne Collins.It didn't take me long to read all three.I liked them so much I bought the Audio version and that absolutely fantastic.
"Very, very good"
This is a must listen, the image and story is created so clearly in your mind. And it is such a great story, and it is wonderfully read.
"Engaging and a real 'page turner'"
This was just what I wanted from an audiobook, made me look forward to my commute
"Urgh couldn't stand the lead character..."
And the narrator was terrible. She made the whole thing sound so condescending. The story wasn't very original and didn't really go anywhere. None of the characters were memorable or likeable.
Just don't understand the hype...
"I am hooked!"
Didn't expect to enjoy this so much! I love it.
Haven't finished it yet but it is totally brilliant. Great story. Great narration! Thank you!
"The Hunger Games"
An absolutely amazing listen, kept me glued to it and i couldnt stop listening, amazing narration, a must listen to.
To begin with I was not sure about the narrator but then got right into the swing of things and was unable to put my ipod down!! Ms Collins has a talent for ramping up the tension and then even though you know something is going to happen it is still shocking when it does!! Before I had finished Hunger Games I booked the next in the series......
I bought this audio book as I had been told that it was a really good story. Unfortunately, I cannot bring myself to listen to the book as the narrator sounds far too old to be playing a sixteen year old girl. Her voice is so annoying I can' t get beyond the first chapter.
"Great storyline, although slightly childish prose."
I really enjoyed the general storyline, but did feel that some of the characters were lacking depth. The way the author told the story was in very childish language, but then I guess this is really a childrens' book and I shouldn't really expect more. Once I got over myself and got used to the narration, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and couldn't wait to listen to the rest of the story (and it was way better than the film).
This can probably be described as my guilty pleasure.
