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
It takes you to the eminent showdown against the Capitol. but who is on the right side, who is the real enemy? It takes you through the pain that it is Katniss existence.
The epilogue brings it full circle.
Right up at the top - the entire hunger games audiobooks series is excellent, and is how I got my non-reading husband into listening to books on car trips.
Katniss! Especailly in this book, I think the author did a great job of making her a realistic character, giving her strengths and flaws, and making her ending (and her actions throughout the book) realistic and memorable.
I know some people have complained about the third book and the ending, feeling as if the character of Katniss is weak or too different from how she is portrayed in the first book. However, me and my husband had a different interpretation. At this point in the novel series, Katniss has been through a lot, seen a lot, and lost a lot. I think the author does an excellent job capturing in Katniss what we both immediately recognized as PTSD symptoms. (We are both active duty military) And this is realistic: going through battle, experiancing war, can do this to a person, and it changes them. Katniss is not the same character from the first book, but it isn't her being weak - her battle within herself, overcoming PTSD, continuing to live, fight, and try to be okay - is the strongest thing we could ever ask her to be. The author does an excellent job capturing this realness in Katniss, and the end of the book (without any spoilers) was poignant, painfully real, and brought a tear to my eye. Excellent, excellent ending to an amazing series.
I started listening to audiobooks from the library while driving around in my truck and soon found myself bringing the books inside with me. Once i got an ipod the books went everywhere with me. I work with my hands so audiobooks are great for me. I now listen to audiobooks about 8 hours each day. If i am not talking to someone or at home in my chair, then i have earbuds in listening to an audiobook.
you have to listen to this one of course because it's the end of the trilogy, you have to know how it ends. the first book i loved, the second book was way too much like the first, but i have mixed feelings about this last one. the story line its self was good. everything was put together fairly well, but this book brought in the immaturity i had feared in a teen series about such an intense topic. This one made me truly sick of Katniss for a lot more of the book then i would have liked. i feel like the author robbed Katniss of her dignity by making her react to choices and decisions with such a short sighted and immature attitude. it would be typical is the average teenager but with everything Katniss went through in the first two books would have given her a much greater grasp of reality and what had to be done. also not crazy about the ending, it felt kind of cut short and unfinished.
What a nicely written conclusion to a superb trilogy. Loved it. I was slightly disappointed with the last few chapters just after President Snow was captured, I would like to have seen Katniss set free because her theory was proven, but overall a great story.
I love suspense, murder mysteries, psycho thriller books most of all! I listen when not taking classes for my masters degree.
It would have been my time better spent if there was a different ending. Disliked the ending tremendously, but overall the story was very captivating.
Sure I would. I've listened to the entire Hunger Games series and thought it was well written allowing my imagination to bust with images.
I'd give Mockingjay a 7 of 10 on worth.
Had to find out what would happen or what new twist could happen.
When Katniss shot section 13 president
She is easy to listen to and a great reader
Yes and just about did
These are great story's
Probably not, because I dont generally listen to my books more than once. But is was a great book.
It definitely had some surprises. After reading some other people's reviews I was hesitant about this last book. Once I got through it though, it was just as good as the rest. It ended very well, and tied everything up for you.
