I thought the idea of this book was interesting so I listened(Im not real big on "romance novels" they tend to bore me)But this was a nice surprise. I loved listening to the "voice" of the little boy, very funny and believable.I listened to this book more than once, its worth the $. Very little romance, just a great story.
The reader did an EXCELLENT job on the different voices!
......I love this series...I think it is so much more original and interesting then most dystopian society books, lately. I am just fascinated and horrified, by the way the nuclear blasts changed the world and the people. Well, at least the unprotected ...
absolutely!The way the author can find beauty in the ghastly...is worth the listen....It will not disappoint!
The main characters are intricate and the way the author "writes them" to us, you truly care about them....its very cool.But there is something about "El Capitan" and his brother...I dont want to give anything away....you just need to listen....these books are like nothing else you've listened to.
I loved the books from start to finish. But I enjoyed the way the people were described, finding how their deformities can be lovely. And their will to survive, under such dire conditions....It also has a lot of symbolism, I think.... The way the individual fusions are "carried", some literally, by each character...have meaning to each of them....
If you enjoy post-apocalyptic, dystopian and a bit of gruesome...your set!
I loved "Hunger Games" so much I recommended it to my kids. They loved it so much we bought the book and it has been passed around all over the high school. "Catching Fire" is JUST AS GOOD!!!!
I'd recommend it to young adults and "older" young adults.
Cadel Piggots life has a lot of sadness. But in the end, Cadel takes charge of his destiny. The part I like the best is that Cadel doesn't let the evil he sees around him influence how he feels! I felt like cheering for him. I really loved this book and went right back to audible and bought the sequel. I have recommended this book to my teenage kids. This book is for young and old alike. Oh, and the reader is excellent!
What a imaginative book, it truly keeps you "JUMPING"! I just couldnt stop listening. There are alot of sad parts, but "Griffin" keeps on going. I liked the detail of how a boy,on his own, could survive and then thrive using his special abilities. I cant wait for a sequel!
