The charecters are real! Suzanne Collins did not do what other authors do and make everything ok- she made the situation come to life, as she made the charectors and circumstances just as messy as they really would be if it were to happen. No sugar coating. I had to read it twice - it is powerful.
this book was good at it's time because there was nothing better out. I give 2 stars because it is at least better than the sookie series, & the marked series. At least the author is intellegent- just really boring. The story just DRAGS!!!
The reader does good, but he ruins it a bit when you have read the others. Eon did a great job with the book- but artimis and holley lacked a bit in this book. Not much with mulch either. Liked others ones better.
So I gave this a listen because I felt like I needed to since all my favorite authors quote it. I can see the draw- powerful love story, but irritating as heck the whole way though. You really want to yell at them all and give up, but then every time you vow to not listen any more you think- but then heathclif would win! so I listened to the whole thing, and while I was glad I did- I still want to kick most of them in the teeth!
For those like me who love a good realistic fantasy - one that you could close your eyes and think- yea, I can see it- this one is great! There is not swearing and sex filling the pages like some authors try, and he does not degrade your IQ by using slang every time someone talks. The plot is good, and it leaves you wanting more in the end! Can't wait for the next book! :) (Great book if you like Hunger games)
This is the best series I have ever read, and I am a big fan of twilight & HP! It brings out such passion in you, I can't wait for the next one to come out!!! It left me on the edge of my seat, and I could just feel the anxiety, and love and hatred of Katnis, Suzanne Kollins does a BEAUTIFUL job with this series. I wish more books were this good. I would also recomend the book Gracling by Kristin Cashor? as well.
this one sucked. I love fantasy, but a crazy house?!?!? I like to feel some sort of bond with a person in the story.... But this book was about the weird kids we all avoid...
This is the book that makes the other ones worth reading- it is like the author finally got the knack of writing, I am anxious for the next one now!
