Still hungry? Listen to more Hunger Games.
©2009 Suzanne Collins; (P)2009 Scholastic, Inc.
"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)
Married, Mother of 3 children, RN, loves the outdoors and music of all kinds. Audio books are my new addiction.
No, but more convenient for commuting. The narrator does a great job, but for me audio books supplement print rather than replace.
One of my favorite narrators.
Exceptional series, marketed as a YA book, but I really enjoyed reading it with my kids 22, 20 and 12. Lots of good conversation starters in this series.
Not sure, however I do prefer the audio
How well it was written.
This is my first
It kept you thinking about it, much after you were finished
There are so many twists that come out of nowhere and just when you think you might have it figured out, it twists again! Downloading Mockingjay as I type!
Surprising, Fun, Entertaining
The action in the Arena
Slightly repetitive and cheesy love story. Everything else is great.
If I could just finish hearing that dang book. Second part won't load no matter what I do.
Yes...I'd listen to it again. It was a great adventure espeically once the Quarter Quell names were selected. I wouldn't mind going through that again...very exciting and full of drama.
Haymitch Abernathy. I love this character...mainly due to his comic relief.
Yes. Espeically after the quarter quell names were selected!
As with most trilogys the second book wasn't as good as the first. However, that was a tall order to beging with. Book one was just SO good. The concept of the Hunger Games isn't real original...but, this version of it was written well and timed perfectly!
I really loved the direction and action that happened at the end of book two. A lot of stuff happened in a short amount of time! I'm skeptical of how everything can be wrapped up in just one more book. But, I'll be reading to find out!
The story was exciting. The book kept the listener interested throughout the entire story. I immediately wanted to listen to the next book.
I did not have a favorite character. Each character made choices depending on their relationship, reality, and current environment.
Ms. McCormick kept the listener continually interested by frequent changes in choices depending on perspective of the characters.
I felt disgusted with the control the City and Sector 13 had over it's people. I also was angry that one person made political decisions over the lives of so many people.
The story was very entertaining.
People compare this series to Twilight but it didn't feel the same. It's much more of an adventure series than romance.
Her characters were clearly defined but not over voiced.
