I loved that this book offers a smooth continuation in the series. oftentimes the author of a book series when pressured to finish a book will rush through the last book to tie up all the ends. i love that suzanne collins didnt do that here. she went with bold moves that many people would be scared to make. people get a strong attachment to charachters in a story. im glad that she made choices in the writing that were surprising and unpredictable for me.
i had a lot of friends who read this and compared it to twilight. i enjoyed reading the twilight series because i enjoy reading. this is much more of a fulfilling moral story than that of twilight. everyting about the charachters, the writing, and how the story and plot are told is better than in twilight. it is a good modern day action adventure, young romance novel. i like the morals they have in it and the way the charachters see peace, war, and government is something thats very thought provoking for ones personal beliefs.
I loved that she dove into the story without fear of expression. it brought to mind days in elementary school when the library teacher would read picture books with lively animation in her voice and interesting facial expressions. her voice helps to add to the emotion and the scenes through the eyes of katniss. i read the first novel in the series and listened to the second two on audible, and i definitely want to know how she would tell the first book. there were a lot of parts that her words evoked a stronger emotion than i would have felt just reading them, but there are other parts where i may have felt stronger emotion if my own fingers were turning the pages and i was imagining the voices of the characters.
i laughed, i cried, i yelled at the reading of the book. it was slightly dangerous considering i was listening to the book while driving across country to keep myself awake. i had to pull over during some of the more emotional points like a couple of scenes with prim. but it definitely kept me alert and awake and interested.
if you dont read the hunger games books, at least listen to them. its a fantastic story!
Awesome, terrific, masterpiece.
Anyone else, her ability to read if fine but her voices are rather weak and makes the listening overall rather hard.
This is overall a great story, the narrator does make it seem longer than it is.
Fun, thought provoking
Not the ending. That was disappointing
This was a good series. It made me wish for a deeper experience, though.
If you're really into the characters and the story, and who isn't, then you'll read this whatever I say. Be warned the ending is grim, but isn't that what you expect.
This is my least favorite of the three and I wonder if the author didn't write herself into a corner. You will need to swallow several unlikely situations. The romantic conflict is exploding inside Kat, and often gets in the way.
Ultimately it's an unsatisfying ending, and not as smooth and believable as the first.
I definitely recommend this audiobook. I read the first book and felt like I wanted to read the other two right away, since it is such and intense story. Because of time issue I got the audiobook and it made a few afternoons at work be thrilling! Excellent story, well performed and very practical to experience. Pure emotion.
Hunger Game and Catching Fire. Maybe 2001?
I loved her performance!
The end..I had to listen to it many times. What an incredible well written story!
Graphic designer and University professor. I love comics and to be always learning something new!
Even though we know this trilogy is a "born best seller kinda writing" I love the twist on the last books, turning the story more into the political problem, globalization, legal slavery and slashing hope... It is great entertaining, visually rich.
This was not as good as the first two. I feel she could've done it in two books this one made the story drag out, I do love the story
It ended like I hoped
No, but it was very good
The first book was great. It was a bit of a struggle to listen to the entire second book. I only finished the second book so that I could start the third. I have heard good reviews about the third book so I am excited to start listening to it.
I hope this set follows the pattern of the many other trilogies before it. The first book is great, the second stinks and the last is awesome.
It's one of the best books I've listened to
The end story of tjis thriology fouls have been a little bit better
Tell us about yourself! Retired School Principal and love mysteries, thrillers, and science fiction print and audio books.
All I can say is I wish there were more books in this series. The author helps you to identify and understand characters so well that you fall in love with them and hate it when the book is over. The audio performer makes the characters come alive and keeps true to the author's feelings in the book. That is especially true with this last book in the series. Great listening, lots of lose ends in the tale are tied up and new things come to light in this last exciting book. The last games were great along with the clock premise as part of the game makers design. I spend an hour to three hours a day in my car and this audio book made me want to make my drives longer just so I could listen to more of the book. Great listen and well worth the cost.
Catness the MokingJay was my favorite character however I loved Peta
Great performance as usual for McCormick
