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 liked the first book, The Hunger Games, but this one was much better. My only suggestion is do not listen to it before going to bed. Strange dreams! Can't wait for the third book.
I bought this based on the recommendations and I was not disappointed!!! I did not read the first book, didn't matter, I followed the story just fine. Really good, I think there is a 3rd book, which I will buy!
In the first book, the political descriptions were background, setting the story for the personalities and the games. Which was fine. But in this book, they have been expanded, so that the games are just a playing piece in the overarching political/revolutionary story. I'm not interested in political/revolutionary stories, so there you have it.
The story was amazing.
The other hunger games books.
The hunger games matching fire.
This is amazing book.
Been on/off with Audible since '07, when I found myself long-term in China, desperate for English language books. Love a good story.
The audiobook has been far more pleasurable than the actual book. When I read the paper copy, I was annoyed with the young adult level and mediocre writing. But it's a fantastic story, so I kept with it. All that goes away when Carolyn McCormick is narrating the tale for you. I got totally lost in the tale and she's consistent with the voices of each character. EXCELLENT and I would definitely listen again.
The narrator and the great tale of rebellion, love, and distopian struggles.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
The Hunger Games series is enticing! The story reaches out and grabs the reader by the throat and asks the question "What if our government worked in this fashion?"
Certainly this fiction story is fiction, but what if it weren't? Do we accept the deal because everyone else is accepting?
In the Capitol city people are always doctoring their bodies, coloring their hair, piercing, tattooing and making very crazy alterations to their bodies in the name of fashion. Does this seem so different than what we see on the streets today?
The performance and story are amazing. They are certainly thought provoking and should make anyone desire to visit local political meetings. We never want to go there. Katniss is a strong person and she is the epitome of what it takes to be a winner in any game.
I can't imagine another reader. Exceptional choice!!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was my favourite book of the series.
Unfortunately the recent movie “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” did not live up to it's name. However, as a reader and lover of this series, I implore you to read this book. Don’t let the movie make you think the story goes downhill after book number one "The Hunger Games", trust me, it doesn't and it’s worth the read.
Worst reader, pretty good book.
The reaction to the quarter quell annoucement
... Anyone? I don't know enough narrators.
"Because movies that are already on their way to theaters need to get remade already!"
The reader was very odd, read everything _so_seriously_.
If you enjoyed Hunger Games you should get this book because it’s a great continuation of the story. The story kept me captivated. Best of the series!
