A wonderful wrap up to a great series! Again, Carolyn McCormick voice carries throughout the entire story and brings to life all the memorable characters that I love from this series. I highly recommend these audiobooks!
I think she is a master of bringing the different characters to life.
A lot of surprises.
This last book was not as enjoyable as the first two. The first two, I could not put down. This one I wanted to fast forward to get to the end..and then the end was a little disappointing.
You definately need to finish the series, because the first two leave you hanging. This book makes you feel satisfied enough... don't need to wonder anymore about the Mocking Jay.. it was OK, but not as good as the first two.
The performance for the audio was well done by the reader.Otherwise, I thought the story spun down into darker and darker depths. The Hunger Games was a novel idea, but the following books were just a continuous series of tales about the worst of the human spirit. Can anyone count the number of deaths and horrid ways to die and be tortured that are encountered in the two-book followup. The book should have just stopped at Hunger Games - each person's imagination about what would come next would be far better than the story that Suzanne Collins decided to write.Sad, ugly, don't get this audible tape.
No, never, not in a lifetime.
I thought she was a good reader of the unfortunate book.
No. Mockingjay was an unfortunate continuation of the Hunger Games. If it can be withdrawn from the book and audio shelves all the better.
I am not expecting cute fairy tale endings but this book was simply grotesque and torturous for both the characters and the reader. Dear reader/listener -- You have been forewarned ! Don't get this audio book!
It's really quite simple: it's a fun and engaging story. You get sucked into the story quickly and easily and it engages you in a way that you just don't want to put the book down ... er, turn off the audio :)!
While I would not avoid a book read by Ms.McCormick, I found her performances of several of the characters to be uninspiring. It's like her interpretations of the voices conflicted with how they read in the print editions.
Great stories. Good ebooks.
only if they understand it is heavy in propaganda. THIS IS THE FUTURE on the
course we are on.
By the time I got to the third book in this series, the story was old and tired and seemed the author was stretching for something new to tell. The characters seemed shallow, no depth to their character. Even if you considered this a love story, it was a weak attempt at best. I thought the first book was the best in the series and with every book that followed, the storyline became weaker, more convoluted and less interesting. I would not recommend the third book unless you are stuck on a desert island and this is the only book you have.
Disappointment. A very weak ending. Very much anticipated...so simple.
If you read the previous books, you'll want to...
no "Green Arrow" stuff...
It's a great performance
No, the story is over...
Good book, but sometimes got too fantasy... I would survive the reading without explosive arrows...
Already have and because its one of the best!!!
I believe no books can compare to this series. But Delirium, Matched, Divergent, and Enclave book series are wonderful books in the same genre.
Her voice is wonderful and allows you to lay back and imagine the world as she reads it to you.
This book was great and sad and not how you imagine it would end... Sad...
