    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing could have made this a better listening experience. The overall topic and story of the book is appalling and disappointing.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Next, I will be listening to Lost in Time by Melissa De La Cruz.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carolyn McCormick’s performances?

    I rarely choose a book based on it's narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There are no redeeming qualities for an author, or a story, that pits innocent children against each other to the death for entertainment.


    Any additional comments?

    The entire concept of this book is contradictory. The author creates characters who hate the fact that, as children, they are forced to ruthlessly, shamelessly, murder each other for the entertainment of the masses. The people of the story despise the practice and yet there is underlying revelry for it. The general public encourage the appalling and disgusting tradition by watching it, gambling on it, even sponsoring it. It makes me ill that in our real world, people spend their hard earned money doing exactly the same thing by purchasing this book, or watching it's namesake film. I regret the money I spent on this book, and wish I could go back in time to undo that decision. I do not, can not, and will not ever condone any person financially benefitting from child murder. Anyone who purchases this book should be ashamed of themselves for encouraging this sick minded author to write such atrocities.
