To be honest I read the Kindle version more than I listened to the Audible version. But, when I did listen, it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the novel. I listened when I needed to lay back and close my eyes for a few minutes.
I liked the characters and how they made the overall story mesh
I liked Mr Porter's read of Pat. Audio books are great but when it comes to characters, having a male imitate the female characters is bad idea. I don't know how that would be effectively carried off without having multiple readers, male and female. But in general, nothing could ruin this book. I enjoyed the book and characters too much to let my petty concerns interfere.
Blue Sy Through the Dark Clouds..But that sounds lame. The Silver Linings Playbook fits perfectly..
I am glad I read this book. I don't think I could see the movie in a theater. I woiuld be the teary eyed guy walking out at the end.
No. Since I had both the book and the Audible I found myself going to the book more because I didn't like Carolyn McCormick's reading style.
The entire series was excellent in keeping my attention and curiosity up. I couldn't stop. I saw the movie first and couldn't wait until Nov 2013 to see Part 2. After Listening to Catching Fire I couldn't stop until I found out how it all ended so I bought the MockingJay in both Audible and Book format.
Her voice interpretation of Katniss was way off. It sounded more like a middle aged woman than a 16 year old girl. I know that has to be a very hard thing to do where you are looking to appeal to a wide and varied audience. It would also be difficult to try and mimic all voices but since Katniss was the main character and the dialogue was mostly hers it would have been nice to get that voice more precise and not worry about the others.
I wish it had ended differently. Very disappointed with who died and who survived. But, "real or not real?" REAL life is not always fair so why should a book be any different. So I say "Real".
I have only listened to two so far so in that respect I would give this on a passing grade of 79%
Expected a part two. Wished for a part two.
Yes. She is an intelligent, funny, honest writer. I wish she were around to write more.
Some of her comments are quotes to carry with you for life.
Potent, timely, political
Yes. Made me more angry at the way politics and government work in these current times.
