I was distracted by all the different characters, and the stories themselves were not that great. That was surprising given that I liked all of J.R.R Tolkien's other work. I think just having one person read it and having a better story would have been nice.
No I just didn't like these stories in particular.
Yes he sounds very pleasant and I enjoyed listening to him. It was all the other voices I found distracting.
Disappointment. After reading books like the The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings I really liked his writing style and the type of stories he dreamed up. I have even read some of the unfinished tales from Tolkien and really liked those. This one was just kind of boring and not really as imaginative as his other work.
There was one story I found somewhat enjoyable, and that was the first one (can't remember the name) it was the best one out of the four.
The relationships that were developed throughout the series.
Maybe lord of the rings because there is a long quest and a struggle between good and evil.
All the dragons. He made their voices so unique and whimsical.
My father or some person who is really into the lord of the rings series because this is a prequel sort of so they would enjoy it.
No it was just not my style.
No but I really like his performance I thought he was good. He doesn't do different voices though.
Some of the war stuff was cool, but to me it read much like a history book.
I didn't read the print version, but I thought it was a wonderful conclusion. The ending was perfect and everything in between was excellent.
In this book definitely Katniss she was the strongest in this book, and she had heart. You could really tell that she cared deeply for all the lives she felt responsible for, and she would do anything to make her sister happy. She was also strong enough to get what she needed to do even if it meant she was not going to live to see the outcome.
Spoiler alert!!!!! When she was supposed to kill Snow, but killed coin instead.
This was a great conclusion. The entire series was amazing, and the ending of this book only made the series even more amazing. Yet there was an underlying message that haunts you and make you think, which only make the book more amazing.
The different twists that it had in it. There were quite a few unexpected moments followed by some great expected ones. Also the inner dialog that Katniss had was amazing you felt the same emotions as her.
I loved Pita because you could really tell her cared for Katniss. I also loved Katniss because she was a very strong girl and a great role model for young girls as well.
I loved Joanna in this book because Carolyn McCormick gives her a smug attitude that fit so well with the character.
When they were on the victory tour and in district 11 and she gave the speech to the two families. I also found it moving at the districts response to her speech. I got teary.
I absolutely loved this book and could not wait to listen to the 3rd book. The author is an amazing writer, and very descriptive.
Absolutely Great Series
When the mutations came out and Katniss figured out that they had the eyes of the other contestants that died throughout the games.
I like Rue because she gave her a very sweet and young voice so I thought of Rue as a child because of that voice.
Yes it was and lucky for me I could because I had a long road trip.
The movie did not do it any justice. Overall it was a great book
