The thing that I liked about this book (and the two earlier ones) is that it is exciting, yet written where I don't have to be ashamed of my 12 year old granddaughter reading it. There is NO foul language in the book and the little bit of sex is not gratuitous. I would recommend this book to anyone.
The book was written from Katniss' viewpoint and she is my favorite character. It was great watching the character development--seeing her change and grown.
Carolyn McCormick brings the story to life as Katniss. She narrates the story from Katniss' perspective.
I wasn't able to listen to it all in one sitting, but my wife did. She would have listened to all three in one sitting. If her parents hadn't put the brakes on, my granddaughter would have listened all in one sitting too.
This was an enjoyable trilogy. I hope Suzanne Collins will write more in this vein.
Sad, confusing, final
When her sister dies
When they were trapped under the cats shop
The first book is excellent, but the following two were not as good, perhaps because the author ran out of ideas? I had to conclude the story though so I persisted with it.
This is a good continuation and ending for the trilogy. It had a good twist although I could see it coming. I just didn't know when it would happen. I would have liked a little more detail at the end but it's still a good read.
Much less of the main characters thoughts, back and forth
Her final arrow shoot during the revolution
Way too much emphasis on the main characters thoughts, found myself disliking the heroine.
Out In The Garden
Best: The story continues. . . Least: Got tired of the "woo is me", it gets too "dark" for me in the city battle.
Would have too, because I liked the first two books, but would warn them.
The first two books. . .definitely not as good.
The concept was shocking, but it worked once you started the first book.
I enjoyed this series very much- I did feel somewhat let down by the ending .. and sad that the trilogy had come to an end.
While I love the trilogy in full, it must be said that this is the weakest of the three. The plot description gets fractured by the end and the resolution is poor considering what came before it. A necessary read if you loved the first two, but a somewhat weak conclusion to the series
I drive long distances so was able to listen to the whole book in two days.
made the miles roll by quickly. Captivating. the person reading did great!
Absolutely - Ive already listened twice! Its as if I know Catness now, and care about her welfare.
When Peter comes to District 13.
She separated the voices so easily and portrayed them as such believable characters. It was easy to picture every one in my mind based on the voice alone. Absolutely excellent performance!
Hunger Games and Catching Fire were better as far as giving a bit more hope for possibilities of favorable outcomes. Nothing ends well when war is involved. The last book is filled with lessons, burdens overcome, loss, and bitter sweetness.
