This book was a very entertaining listen for me, humorous and fast paced enough to keep it ever interesting. Well done.
I love the juxtaposition of the many aspects of Rose May.
I don't want to compare it to another book -- it is a good work all on its own.
I LOVE her accent. It is so appropriate to her characters. I think sometimes that the author does the best job narrating their own work because they truly understand the story like nobody else -- and in Jackson's case this is very true. I can't image anyone else narrating.
This is a silly question ...
I became a fan of Joshilyn Jackson from this book. I found the story wonderfully involving -- I found Rose May/Roe a fascinating character and her story compelling. I would recommend this book without reservation. I loved Jackson's narration -- it added a rich flavor to the story I don't think would have gotten from just reading the book (hence, I'm glad I opted for the audio version). As to the writing, Jackson's prose is fresh and fun with just enough Southern twist to truly bring you right into the story without overwhelming you. She is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.
A perfect ending.
I love Collin's futuristic version of our world -- and the warning it has for all of us.
Yes, I have listened to all three Hunger Games books. I found McCormick's narration good.
Of course Mockingjay will lead you to an extreme reaction. You have to feel for this heroine and the other characters -- as well as examine your own life and our culture.
I know there have been a lot of negative reviews of this last book in the series. These reviews kept me from listening to this story for several months. BUT I am so glad I finally let go of what others were saying and took the ride. It was amazing. I disagree with the negative views of how the story ends -- no, it is not a "perfect ending" for all the characters (are there ever perfect endings?) but it was perfect ending for this story. I loved it. I was moved by it. I am sad that I will not get to spend any more time in Collin's Panam, but I feel sated and happy with how this story wrapped up. If you've enjoyed the other books, but feel hesitant about some negative reviews -- DON'T -- download, listen and enjoy!
I love this series. It is way better to listen to than the series is to watch on tv. The narrator is outstanding.
