I really enjoyed this book as it was easy to read and there was always a mystery for me to really want to know about. I'm not a huge fan of romance novels and I think the reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because the main character was constantly boy-crazy. I loved the relationship between Kylie (main character) and Holiday (camp leader).
I also enjoyed learning the different species and the powers and how having these powers come with consequences. The novel did a good job of showing the grey of life.
I went on to reading all the books in the series, one after the other which showed how much the mysteries sucked me in and I NEEDED to know.
I know I am meant to be an adult but this young adults novel gripped me. I enjoyed thinking about live without love and the book managed to acheive realism with a circumstance that (hopefully) couldn't happen.
I was hooked, I didnt want to stop listening. Katniss the main character was wonderfully confused. She didnt always have pure intentions and that is refreshing in this type of novel where the hero (or heroine) is often a bit too perfect. I am looking forward to see how the movie can bring her inner turmoil to life.
I am a busy mum of 2 under 3's, audio books are a good fix for me as I can listen anywhere and at all times of the day.
So, I already own the paperback and have recently purchased The Hunger Games on audiobook, so the next step would be to acquire this one, the second in the trilogy. A great Narrator makes this a much more enjoyable listen than some I've come across. We have listened to it a few times now and think it will become a great addition to our audio library.
