Summary

Sparks are igniting. Flames are spreading. And the Capitol wants revenge. 

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create. 

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

Love it!

I’m 11, and this book has had me gripping my hands in suspense while trying to sleep! I normally listen to around 5 chapters a day and finished this book fairly quickly. One thing I have a problem with is that why is the Quarter Quell only a couple of chapters long! And the time before it wasn’t really needed. I found it a tad boring in the beginning. I was really annoyed(?) that why Suzanne Collins didn’t go in depth about the victory tour. And we didn’t get as much info about other tributes unlike the first book. Tomorrow I will finally watch the movie, then get Mockingjay. I was laughing when Finnick was ‘flirting’ with Katniss. I didn’t understand until I read it on the Hunger Games wiki. Being 11 has it’s downfalls. Tatiana Muslany(Sorry if I spelt it wrong!) is a wonderful voice for Katniss. One thing is that for some reason all males either sound like Peeta or Haymitch. I found it confusing. I would definitely recommend this book to absolutely everyone who likes dystopian books. I found it extremely clever to make it a clock! Wow, must of taken ages to write a book this awesome. Thank you Suzanne Collins, Tatiana Muslany, the company who produced the book, the company who published it(I don’t know the name, Schooltastic I think) and of course Audible! It is an extremely gripping read and it’s easy to listen to. Enjoy xxx

questionable performance

sadly not the best acting but still a good story. the actor is not very believable and is overdoing it to the point of making it hard to get into the story.

Best Narration Ever

Everyone knows the feeling. You spend your money on a beloved book, hoping that the audio book can do it justice and it happens: God. Awful. Narrating.

That is so far from the case here.

Tatiana nails this. I have read through books and watched the movies countless times, but not until purchasing these audio books have I ever felt like I was hearing Katniss. These are absolutely unbelievable. Tatiana had me moved to tears several times even though I know this story through and through. She breathed life into this.

Do yourself a favor. Buy it. Buy this one. Buy every single book in this series narrated by Tatiana. You will fall in love.

Amazing!!

Book 1 captivated me but this one just cemented my love of the series! There's no point in me getting into it about the plot because what else is there to add to the millions of others!! All I can say is YES, it's that good!! YES, it lives up to the hype, YES, it's so worth the credit. Heck, I have the Hardback, Limited Edition Hardback, Paperback and Audio of this series!! Along with Harry Potter, it's my favourite series ever! Don't stay here reading this!!! Go buy this NOW!!!!

Tatiana Maslany performs this amazingly. She puts emotion behind her words and captures the atmosphere perfectly.

Hard to listen to the narrator

Amazing book but that narrator is hard to listen to. The voices she uses for Peeta and Haymitch are so irritating. There are times when Katniss is struggling through parts of the games where the narrator sounds constipated trying to convey the struggle i guess. I wish I’d bought a different version of this audio book

Strongly prefer to original audiobooks

The narrator is AMAZING. Perhaps my very favorite narrator now. Tone, pacing, inflection, voices for all characters, etc. are spot on!

About Time!

I have been impatiently awaiting the release of the rest of this series to be released with Tatiana Maslany as the narrator. I could not stand the sound of the other lady's voice. It was horrible. Tatiana sells this book! She actually takes to time to feel the characters and express them. Thank you for releasing these!

I thought Book One was well done, but...

I'm middle-aged, and I know I'm not the target audience for this series. However, I found the first book to be well done, and it kept my interest throughout. It was a quick read. This second book disappointed me. There were many parts that required me to greatly suspend disbelief or, at the very least, made me roll my eyes, which never happened in the first book. It felt like she had to come up with so many new ideas that some of them seemed lame to me. I thought that parts of it dragged, and I found myself checking to see how much of the book was left, hoping I was nearing the end. I will still read the third book, just to find out how it ends but I hope it feels more like listening to the first book than the second.
