Publisher's Summary

Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

Still hungry? Listen to more Hunger Games.

©2009 Suzanne Collins; (P)2009 Scholastic, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Collins expertly blends fantasy, romance and political intrigue (so who needs vampires?)." (People Magazine)

"Catching Fire not only lived up to my high expectations, it surpassed them. It's just as exciting as The Hunger Games, but even more gut wrenching, because you already know these characters, you've already suffered with them." (Stephenie Meyer)

"...enough action to please Hunger Games fans and leaves enough questions tantalizingly unanswered for readers to be desperate for the next installment." (School Library Journal, starred review)

    "This story is Catching Fire"
    Where does Catching Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For the performance of Carolyn McCormick it would be in my top 10 for the story itself, top 20.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katniss and Peta are my favorites, but you have to throw in a little Hamish. The three make up a great unit. Peta is the Heart, Hamish the brains, and Katniss the Soul.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Loved it,..


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

    I both laughed and cried.

    "Listen at a faster speed"

    The story had unexpected twists, like the first. I thought the narrator was a bit too slow so I increased the speed a bit. It left me wanting to move on to the third in the series.

    "Once again, excellent"
    Have you listened to any of Carolyn McCormick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had listened to Carolyn on the first Hunger Games book and this one was no different. She did an excellent job and I want to listen to more books narrated by her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Just as with the first book, I could have listened to this whole book at once if I could stay awake for that long. It was excellent and hard to put down.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this book! It was very well written, and easy to listen to. I can't wait to listen to the third one.

    "Wanting more....."
    What made the experience of listening to Catching Fire the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy the suspense created by the author - not knowing or being able to figure out what will happen at the end...kept me reading and wanting more....


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the action...


    What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her intonations of various characters voices keep the characters separated from the words.

    I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.

    "Least Favorite of Three"

    This was my least favorite of the series. Necessary for the story but I felt that the story was filler to get to the final book.

    Story
    "Good follow up book, but felt a bit lengthy"
    Would you listen to Catching Fire again? Why?

    I guess I would listen to it again, but it is unlikely I will. The story line became a bit too lengthy for me about three quarters of the way into the book.


    What other book might you compare Catching Fire to and why?

    The first book.


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

    Yes. Usually good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Story
    "Good book. Moved to buy from the movie..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Catching Fire to be better than the print version?

    Interesting story. I didn't listen or read the story the first book; I viewed the DVD movie. I was surprises by the story's great acting. and the timeliness of this story. Maybe more appropriately steady content of the story. It is science fiction in great tradition of the form. Social commentaries relevant today are very pointed. Statement of the ways control and people organize themselves is great. No a book for change at all. However the book was entertaining. I will try other work from Ms. Collins. It is entertaining reading, theatrical listening.


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

    No, but I will.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The story continues...


    Any additional comments?

    Not sure I would see the movie. reading and the listening always makes a better picture when the author and the actors present for me. Movies are great, but I am not as impressed by good movies as I am by good books. Part of this situation is my own education and knowledge of art forms. We are taught to write, and read. I appreciate the mechanics of writing and theatrical reading when I experience it differently than the visual movie experience. I have lot less deeper understanding in mechanics of movie story composition and presentation. But like many things in life I hope learn more about movie production and presentation composition.
