    The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for 10 years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a 17-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do.

    I liked that it delt with a strong woman, and her need to set the record straight about the
    higher up's who had stold her childhood and life as a young adult.

    This was the only thing I didn't like, he was hard to understand and just did not pronounce some of the words as I do.

    Story
    Where does Catching Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The main people are very beleivable, and keep you wanting the good guys to win. The only reason I can see to call it a teenagers book is because it is without bad language or sex sceans. It is full of action and unsavory individuals. I think it is as good as the Harry Potter
    Books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Catching Fire?

    The uncertiotony of first love as it unfoldes,is something we can relate too, even thought
    it seldom has that much pressure. It took Katniss a while to realize it wasn't just for show when Peeta first said he loved her.


    Have you listened to any of Carolyn McCormick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first . I have listened to other readers who have used more voices to make the people seem more individual.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughted and cryed both at the moments of great joy like when they realized they were not going to dye. I cryed when some of the contenders were dying and laughted when others
    made stupid moves that lead to their deaths such as the time Katness shot the nest from the tree.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of the 3 books , what else has Suzanne Collins written?
