Absolutely! It's a story that grabs you quickly making you want to listen just a little longer and every chance you get.
Dennie by far! She has decisions to make and takes them head on. There's lessons to be learned and she's a very quick and creative study. (Aunt Vic was my second favorite.)
She puts character and personality in to each person in the story. Angela Dawe is definitely a performer to search out and enjoy in other audiobooks.
My daughter recommended this author to me. I've listened to two of them now and looking forward to more as she's definitely an author I'll follow. She keeps her material true-to-life as I could so see this happening to me if I was in her shoes.
Without a doubt!!! I believe the audiobook is even better than the movie ... If you can believe that. The performers, along with the extended material a book provides, make this a well deserved listen!
There are several ... This book is FULL of memorable moments! If I had to pick one thing that's stuck with me is that Hilly Holbrook needs a good old fashioned spanking.
The reality of it all. The time in history and the south along with the emotions that went along with it.
Yes and no. Yes, because it's an awesome story. No, because I think you need to have some time to reflect on what's taken place during that listening time.
I'd really like to see a follow-up to this one. There were so many leads left to follow at the end. What happened to Minnie? How did Aibileen do working at the paper? Miss Skeeter's life in New York must have really been something.
Absolutely! The story line is addicting right from the start so you naturally have to continue on from the first book all the way through to the end of the third. I was also impressed with Carolyn McCormick changing her voice for each character and being able to hold to that throughout the entire series.
Suzanne Cook paints a very vivid word picture, so being able to see this story unfolding in my mind was easy. I enjoyed the detail that she provided about the characters, their surroundings and history that made understanding the trials and tribulations so much easier. (So much of this was lacking in the movie but movies are only allowed to be so long.)
Katniss Everdeen was my favorite. The 'voice and tone' used by Carolyn McCormick throughout the series allows you to really know Katniss, her thoughts, her heart. It's great to see a young lady display this type of 'take charge' attitude with regard to taking over the responsibilities of her family after her father's death due to her mother's inability to do so due to her own personal grief. Even after winning the first Hunger Game, she never changes her personality and allows the Capital's way of life to swallow her up. Her focus remains the same; protecting and taking care of her family and those closest to her.
Yes! I wanted to kill President Snow myself. I laughed and cried at different times throughout the series.
While the author has done a fabulous job, I'd like to especially thank Carolyn McCormick for her talents in performing this series. I've already begun shopping for other books that she's performed.
