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)
That is hard, I love them all.
I don't want to give the book away
Suzanne Collins' ability to narrate the book and the easily visible descriptions used in the book made for an easy follow.
The descriptive writing.
Great all around book ( I listened while on long runs). Hard to put down.
I don't know. I've read the first book in this triologhy in the printed version but decided to buy and listen to the audio versions of the second and the third books.
That dark feeling...
Again, great characterization, and plot. The descriptions of the game are by far and away my favorites.
The scene in District nine
Continues the story line, and does end on a cliff hanger. I immediately started the third book once this one was complete.
I started listening to audiobooks from the library while driving around in my truck and soon found myself bringing the books inside with me. Once i got an ipod the books went everywhere with me. I work with my hands so audiobooks are great for me. I now listen to audiobooks about 8 hours each day. If i am not talking to someone or at home in my chair, then i have earbuds in listening to an audiobook.
This was pretty good of course, but i sort of feel like this book was unnecessary. I was shocked how similar this one was to the first. the first 3/4 of this book should have been a few chapters, and spent the rest of the time on new material. overall i enjoyed it, but i do feel a little cheated
Loved it! loved it! loved it! What an excellent sequel. Thought it couldn't get any better than the 'Hunger Games' but boy! was I wrong.
If the narrator had not sounded as though she was reading from a page I would have rated this book with 4 stars. I enjoyed reading the book itself and I thought I would try the audiobook for my commute. I can't recommend this narrator at all. She just doesn't understand how to pace and lend expression to a sentence or paragraph so that it carries you on through the story. Her diction is perfect but she sounds stiff, unrehearsed and generally flat.
I would recommend reading the book. Skip the audiobook, it isn't worth the time or money.
I'm not sure who I would cast in place of the current narrator but I do think that a younger person with a younger voice would help to relate the narration more closely to the character.
I couldn't even finish listening to the book. It really put me off.
I made the mistake of not listening to the sample beforehand. I really should have checked it out first. This is the first Audible book that I regret buying.
This book really got to me. I really got deep into it. Listened to it on my way to work and at the gym. I couldn't wait to hear what happened next!
