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)
Okay- I like children's novels at nearly 40. Maybe its because I like to read what my kids read. But this series is simply amazing. The character's spring to life. The reader is really incredible. I feel like I am in Panem. I picked up this series last week- and sped to download the rest after the first novel. This second installment just made me say so worth the credit I spent on this. Often when I read things I think I could have thought of this or that- no way I could have in a million years come up with this trilogy. Breathtaking and wonderful- keep writing and reading Collins and McCormick.
I can't believe I got into this second of the Hunger Game Series. I quickly downloaded it after finishing the first! It's a young adult book and I'm 54!!!! And I can't wait for the third...it doesn't come out until October! I keep questioning why I like this book so much. Is there a side to me that likes violence? I mean kids killing kids!!!! How awful! But I was pulled in totally...so I will just say I'm young at heart, right!!! Escaping reality??! Well, whatever made me love this book - I'm hooked!
This was a great continuation of the first installment of The Hunger Games. Left me anxious to read the final book in the series.
I would definitely listen to Catching Fire again. In fact, I plan to listen to all three books again before watching the movie. The story is very engaging.
The love torn teenager, fighting for her life and trying to keep sane all at the same time.
Captivating, adventurous, sad.
The second part of the Hunger Games
I really enjoyed all the characters.
I laughed and cried and got mad.
Very good book
This was a case where the listening left something to be desired. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the book, I thought to listen to it. The narrator did not work for me. I was left with the impression of an older person reading a book out loud, not a girl telling me her story. Disappointing.
Enjoy the adventure
A bit of a let down from the Hunger Games. But, still enjoyed this novel. Catness, main character, is tough, smart and a strong person. Someone we can all use as a role model.
Not again. You just have to hate the cruelty that humans are capable of sometime. Another great story by Collins. I can see why my nephews love this intrigue. Ah yes, District 13. Read on.
