I got bored and annoyed with the plot. There can be too much of a good thing, and this is an example. It was time. It just dragged on and on (and on). Loss after loss. Horror after horror. Enough already! UGH! Someone just tell me what happens at the end! I'm not even done listening, and I want it to end. But, I'm committed to the end, out of morbid curiosity more than anything.
The narrator was incredible in all three books. She is very animated, does voices very well, and has a pleasant and exciting voice to listen to.
Yes, I would try another book because I loved the Hunger Games series and she knows how to elicit emotion well, which I think is important in a book when you have to imagine everything yourself.
I love all scenes with Peeta and Katniss!
Many, but I don't want to specify and ruin what happens.
This book wasn't as good as the first two. It was a bit slower paced and at points became boring, but it is definitely worth it to finish the series. It picks back up again and you are back to the excitement you experienced in the actual hunger games.
Yes, I would listen to it again but not for a few years, as it is just amazing and I need sometime to appreciate it again just as if it was the first time.
The story is well written and posed.
When she killed the president of Distrtict 13
Yes, I couldn't put it down.
Both author and narrator show skill in their respective roles, but neither appeal to my tastes. Suzanne Collins wrote an enjoyable series and ends it well with this book. While the story was captivating I was disappointed with the predictability of the story.
Perhaps it was just this series but Carolyn McCormick didn't give the series any particular benefits. Her character voices can be cartoon-like and the added drama by her voice occasionally took away from the story.
I would be skeptical but not completely opposed.
Worth the read.
The Hunger Games
Flexiblity that I can listen while I drive
Yes, I cried at one part.
I loved everything about it. Great story!
As a sequel, I think it ranks right up there with "The Two Towers" in the LOTR works.
I think her interpretation of the dramtic moments hightens the reader's interest.
YES! I actually got it all listened to in 2 days (nearly 12 hours worth).
Wonderful book! Loved it!
This story was a little bit more complicated than the previous two. The war strategies and personal agendas required somewhat more attention from the listener. I enjoyed the entire series, and wished for a few more trips to Panem.
Haven't read the print verson, but a friend said it was hard to "get into" the print version
Katnessl. Strong, smart caracter
Read with such passion!
Catnis was her same over dramatic self when she was reflecting on her situations but again, other than that, the entire series was a fantastic series to listen too and made my long drive much more tolerable. Some of it was bordering on predictable towards the end and things seemed to happen too rapidly but I would listen to it again entirely even if I had to break it up into daily driving episodes.
Hamich- he was very unpredictable and seemingly uncaring
Hamich- she hit him on the head with his different states of soberness
