Working wife and mother of 2. No time to sit down with a good book so Audible is perfect for my life style.
I thought it would be hard to buy into this book because of the age of the children but the author really makes it completely plausable. I didn't want to stop listening. The sequals are worth listening to also!
I flip-flop between business and fiction books to keep me grounded in reality while still keeping my childhood love of fantasy firmly intact.
The third book in the "Hunger Games" trilogy is much different than the first two books, but is just as intriguing and entertaining to read; it's more of a post-apocalyptic military story, but don't let that scare you away from this book, because it's a great story with a partially happy ending.
The last book in the trilogy was as good as the previous two. The ending was a bit disappointing, but it's a matter of preference and which characters you want to see together.
After reading the first two books I was excited about the conclusion .... she just had to marry Peeta and live happily ever after. Um .... horrible. Just when the ending almost happened as it should, it took a bad turn and became very depressing. Ugh .... I feel like I need to re-write the ending so I can feel happy tomorrow.
THE THIRD IN A SERIES, ONE HAS FEW OPTIONS BUT TO READ THIS BOOK. UNFORTUNATELY IT IS A REAL LETDOWN.
IT WAS AS IF THE AUTHOR HAD NO IDEA HOW TO END HER INTERESTING TALE OF A FUTURE WORLD. THE RESOLUTION OF THE DISPUTE BETWEEN THE REBELS AND THE CAPITAL SHOWED NONE OF THE CREATIVITY THAT HER FIRST TWO NOVELS EXHIBITED. IN RETROSPECT, I WOULD RATHER HAVE LEFT THE STORY UNRESOLVED THAN READ THIS BOOK.
CAROLYN IS A FINE NARRATOR. NO CRITICISM THERE.
I COULD NOT RECOMMEND THE SERIES TO AN ADOLESCENT READER BECAUSE IT HAS SUCH A BLOODY AND CRUEL-AND AT THE SAME TIME BORING- ENDING. WHAT AN ANTI-CLIMAX!
I enjoyed every second and could not be happier with how things were wrapped up. It felt so real. I spent every waking moment listening to this book. I felt like I was watching these kids grow up. I have recommended this to my family and friends. Happy to find a series that I could enjoy with my teenage son.
First let me say I liked the story as a whole and the reading was great. If you have read the first 2 books then you have to finish it off. And here comes the but.........But I really felt the last book was rushed, she told us about so much instead of just leting us exprience it with her. If the story would have run too long it could have broken into a fourth book.
Very BAD ending. She had a chance to save it. But she ruined the whole thing.
She spent the whole book leading up to NOTHING!!!!!!!
Very depressing book that made me hate every woman around me. Tell I remembered that some of them aren't like her.(SOMETIMES;-)
that the story continues
Pita of course
Her voices are great, I had no problem listening to her
Yes, we wanted to wait for our next road trip but we couldnt help but listen to it straight through
After having read the reviews of the final book of this trilogy, I was reluctant to buy it. I am glad I did buy it as it proved to be a great book with a great ending. I do not enjoy sad endings. But I did not find the ending of Mockingjay gloomy, quite the opposite. Despite the destruction and loss in a world driven by hunger for power, the two hearts destined to be together find each other and build a hopeful feature where children learn from the mistakes of the past. I was neither on the “Gale” nor the “Peeta” team, but I do believe the strongest love won.
