Don't want to ruin it for other readers.
I'm not good with reviews but I will be listening to this series of books again. Don't really like to watch the survival series on tv but the 3 books in this series are interesting and it pulled me into it.
Yes, partricularly to people who like to think about depts of stroy.
Relating to present cultural isues and how morals and ideals get twisted
Good reading, but characters voices needed more indivualisum. Naration became uninterasting.
No I need a rest from it at time to think it out.
I believe this book and the preivious book Catching Fire could have been consoludated into one book.
I alos felt the lead character became too mushy and full of self pitty. Often the injureys she sustained healed way to quickly to be believable.
This book has no logical or rational progression. It's just awful flowery (and extremely gory) writing that is neither good literature or interesting story. You just get so desensitized and care so little by the end. I found myself laughing out loud often at the ridiculousness of the twists and turns that are neither interesting nor warranted. Don't waste your time even if you have read the first two. The first one is the only really good book here.
After reading Catching Fire I was really looking forward to this book, but there were so many twists it made it hard to keep up. I was disappointed in the resolution for several characters in the story.
I think more detailed resolution would be nice.
Yes. It made me mad and it made me cry.
Nope - the book was painful at times. Maybe it was the readers voice, or maybe just the premise in general. I found myself constantly rolling my eyes at how the 16 year old with the bow and arrow is able to outmaneuver and outthink the government/military.
She was good at differentiating but her voice in general was like nails on a chalk board for me. Especially, whenever she would cry out "Peeta!!!"
The first book was pretty good but I found the last two highly overrated. (unless you are in the ages of 12-18)
The main character sucks and is so oblivious to everything. The ending was pointless and lame. I think the author would have been better off writing more about the supporting characters and what became of them instead of Katniss. I was more attached to them then her; which is the opposite of what an author is supposed to to with the protagonist. I own the audiobook, but plan to delete it.
I will wait and see.
I was very disappointed in the series. I liked the updated idea of a futuristic Roman gladiator games and what happens when people are completely disarmed, no free speech, and a dictatorship.
Parent please understand this book series has adult content. This is something that should not ready if the child is under 13. With younger teens 13-16 (as a teacher) I would highly suggest you read it with them and then discussion the points and themes of the book makes. I hope this review helps.
I thought this series would be amazing. So much hype from so many people. But I felt it fell flat. It got predictable, and I found that I didn't care wether Katness lived. The voices sound too much like each other, and it got too detailed in parts that didn't matter. Too many characters, and not a believable story. I didn't love this series, but I didn't hate it so much that I I shut it off. Did find myself tuning out too much though, and I was not sad that it ended.
Yes and already have. I find this one the one that brings out the most emotion in me.
This one it would have to be Finick, Bogs, and Katniss. Finick because we finally get to see the real Finick and find out the truth about him, also we get to meet his Annie. Bogs because even though he is Coins Main soldier he doesn't look at it the same way and is truly fighting for the right reasons. Plus with him protecting Katniss the way he does.
When Peta is about to loose it and Katniss finally kisses him infront of Gale declaring herself and getting Peta to respond to her the way he use to even while still trying to fight the effects of the hijacking.
This one brought out the most emotion in be I cried quite a bit. But I also laughed alot.
I was curious but expecting to be disappointing in a series about teenagers in a gladiator ring. Loved it because the author made me care about the characters and the fight for freedom. I'm a bit embarrassed to say I cried over the loss of the the beloved ones and rejoiced over the death of the bad ones. But I guess that's a sign of great storytellling.
The fate of Peeta and Catniss. Would not have predicted that ending, but I had to say, "Yeah, that makes sense."
Create male and female voices well.
Finnick's final moment. Great character
Great YA book for anyone who loves fully-developed characters.
