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)
I thought this series would be amazing. So much hype from so many people. But I felt it fell flat. It got predictable, and I found that I didn't care wether Katness lived. The voices sound too much like each other, and it got too detailed in parts that didn't matter. Too many characters, and not a believable story. If the writer herself were a teen I'd be impressed, but not impressed as an accomplished author. I didn't love this series, but I didn't hate it so much that I I shut it off. Did find myself tuning out too much though, and I was not sad that it ended.
I like to stay abreast of what my kids are reading, and never cease to be amazed at the quality of what is being written for this age group now - far better than a lot of the rubbish I was served as a child! This is a well crafted and well executed novel, and the narrator does a great job conveying all the myriad emotions in the story.
Catnis, everything I wish I had been at her age, smart, loyal and logical
When the games ended, and how Catnis concludes them (no spoiler here!)
Dont do it! The film was rubbish.
Both can be completely enjoyable. How much time I have determines if a book is a sit and read or listen on the go.
There were several moments of, "Oh my Gosh!" and "What's next?.
For the performance of Carolyn McCormick it would be in my top 10 for the story itself, top 20.
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.
I both laughed and cried.
This is a very good and well written book! The narrator for this audio book did a wonderful job capturing Katness. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book~!
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.
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.
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.
Listen to this book! It was very well written, and easy to listen to. I can't wait to listen to the third one.
I enjoyed this offering and the entire series. The narration is GREAT and the story is engaging and thought provoking. Well worth the listen!
I enjoyed the book, the way it was narrated and the story behing it
She did a great job
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....
I like the action...
Her intonations of various characters voices keep the characters separated from the words.
