Description

Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.
Still hungry? Listen to more Hunger Games.
©2009 Suzanne Collins (P)2009 Scholastic, Inc.

Critiques

"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 voice!

I liked the story not as much as the fiest part, though there are some cool twists. The reader's voice though is fascinating, love it!

Excellent!

Eh bien, elle l'a fait. L'auteur a fait le 2e aussi bon que le premier.
Il s'agit d'un tour émotif, les personnages sont encore plus immersif à ce qu'ils étaient dans le premier livre.
Il ya quelques développements à l'histoire que vous attendez après avoir lu le premier, mais il ya aussi de belles surprises.
Étant qu'il est dit à la première personne, il était très important de garder le même narrateur et je suis heureux qu'ils ont fait.
- Et vous devriez être averti.
Si vous êtes là pour celui que vous * vraiment * en elle pour la prochaine!
(Je déteste attendre pour la prochaine dans une bonne suite, Mme Collins, s'il vous plaît pressé ...)

Almost as good as the first

I assume you have read book 1, the Hunger Games, if not you need to start there.

I liked this almost as well as the first book. SC has a good imagination and surprised me more then once. I did get quite irritated with the main characters' constant whiny attitude. I realize that a lot of teenagers are overly dramatic and whiny, but you would think as much as this girl has accomplished she would be more gung-ho. I would also think that as much killing she has done and bloodshed she has seen that she would be more mature for her age. I did think this book was more YA then the first.

If you like this book then I suggest that you listened to Barbara Demick's "Nothing to Envy". It is real life stories about people in North Korea, which strongly mirror the fictional world in Hunger Games. You may like it even more since, these are real stories.

I enjoyed this book and will be listening to the third book.

Dissent Rules

Katniss and Peeta return triumphantly to District 12. After 6 months, they embark on a tour around the other districts as dissent and tensions rise. An outraged President Snow concocts a special treat for the 75th Hunger Games.

This book is slow to start with the "couple" touring on the train and adjusting to living in their victors' houses in a separate village while the townspeople continue to exist in squalor. The love triangle grows more complicated with Gale now back in the picture. Mid-way through, the story gains speed with an interesting twist and never stops. Couldn't download the third quickly enough.

My only complaint is how old the narrator sounds. I grew accustomed to it in the first book and it doesn't detract too much from the fantastic story.

Even better the second time...

I loved this book and I will talk about content, but first I must give praise to the audio itself. I often read the books before I listen to them, so I don't expect to be so spellbound by the audio. However, with this book, the narrator (Carolyn McCormick) is great and helps to engage me even more than when I read it myself. I had listened to the first book "The Hunger Games" before reading the second, it had the same narrator, and I could hear here voice in my head as I read. I made a point of listening to both back to back and it was pure pleasure. In "Catching Fire", I found myself laughing and crying with the book. The narrator is consistent and spot on with her inflections and voicing.

Now for content, I had been anticipating this second book in the trilogy since the moment I finished the first. It continues just a short time after the first and covers all that has happened in between and then continues on with the story Suzanne Collins so expertly weaved. The book is perfectly title as it descibes exactly how the temperment of the Districts has developed. I don't want to spoil it for people with too much. The love triangle between the Katniss, Peeta and Gale is further fleshed out, but, of course, is not resolved. The author does a wonderful job of this, and I, myself, can't even decide who is the one to choose, I can't take sides.

I don't know how helpful this review will be, but I cannot praise this book enough. It left me more than eager for the final book and I am sure that I will need to read it again in the mean time.

Great story - wrong reader!

Would you try another book from Suzanne Collins and/or Carolyn McCormick?

I have read Catching Fire (and of course all the others) and after listening to The Help was really excited to hear Catching Fire. But from the outset it was just all wrong. The reader sounds like she is forty rather than a Katniss. It is grating. I listened for awhile but am not going to be able to finish it - I was really surprised that with content like this they didn't choose someone younger and more in touch with the content. I'm sure Carolyn would be great with other content - but not this.

Story engrossing, narration nearly unbearable

Would you try another book from Suzanne Collins and/or Carolyn McCormick?

no

What did you like best about this story?

compelling, rebellion, suspenseful, enjoyable.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carolyn McCormick?

Nearly anyone. I don't think she's necessarily a bad narrator, but in this case she didn't have any sense of the characters she was playing.

Was Catching Fire worth the listening time?

no

Any additional comments?

Although I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and I have previously read the book, the narration by Carolyn McCormick made this listen almost unbearable. She has turned Katniss, a character with profound personal strength, who had to provide for her family at the young age of 13 or 14, into a whiny, simpering basket case of a girl you want to give a good firm slap. Instead of introspective pondering about the significance of events unfolding before her, this Katniss seems hopelessly lost in self doubt, self pity, and self loathing. I was taken aback at how the narration could so change a character. I don't think Carolyn McCormick really has any grasp on the characters she was reading, because I feel like she read an entirely different book than I did.

Seamless continuation from previous title

One thing I must say between books 1 and books 2 of the Hunger Games books is how seamless they seem to flow into each other. As most would agree, the first Hunger Games was excellently put together so a continuation was very much welcomed.

The narrator grew on me, she did a very good job voicing the different characters that are introduced (which were quite a few). She did very well to show the tortured nature of the characters in this book.

Catching Fire introduces a lot of very interesting new characters I must say. The tyranny of the Capital and of Snow becomes even more evident in the title. The story progresses very quickly I find and certain aspects of the book seems a bit rushed if you ask me, however much was not lost in this title and it was very much enjoyed.

FANTASTIC read. Just like the first ready for 3rd.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes this is a great read with a talented narrator. Great read.

What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

She did great with the story, making everything easy to see and imagine.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I just want to listen to all 3 books in one setting but that would be impossible.

Any additional comments?


What fantastic books these are? I am truly a slave to these books until I finish the last one! I HAVE to read it now. Strong story with unexpected turn of events must finish the third book in one setting. Highly suggest reading these.

The Girl on Fire.......

This book is intense and picks up right where Hunger Games left us. You would think Katniss & Peeta would now be living the victors life BUT then the rebellion starts. Katniss becomes the symbol of defiance and President Snow won't have it ......and so it goes...

I really like this series and there was no way I would not read all three books but in no way is this book equal to the first, with The Hunger Games (book one) being near perfect it's makes it a hard act to follow. Catching Fire isn't as good as The Hunger Games but it's still a great read/listen.

Twice Bitten

I read the first book out of curiosity. I read this sequel (against my better judgment) because I enjoyed the film, which I thought was much more engaging and adult than the book. It is interesting that the plot of both book and film was much the same, but the visual presentation lifted the script from the book's basic level to something like a Star Wars franchise. I guess the promoters hope it is that successful!
The movie also made me realise that I was wrong about the narrator in my review of the Hunger Games. I defer to those readers who picked the performance as lacking something that I did not. Now, having listened to her a second time, it is clear to me, too. In fact, my 12 year old daughter (listening to the reading as we traveled to her school one morning) described it as "Reception Reading". I regret to say it has some of that Dick and Dora quality to it. Maybe it would be more engaging with another narrator.
As for the plot, it continued in its very predictable way. The penultimate Chapter was so predictable that I could barely listen to it, even though it is a mere 30 minutes long.
Unless I enjoy the next film, I will not be reading the third book.

Engrossing story, terrible narration

I can't really add much to the reviews of the story that have been previously written here. It is suspenseful, interesting, and made two days of a road trip much more interesting. I look forward to the third book, except I won't be listening to it from Audible. The narration here, by Carolyn McCormick, was simply dreadful. Katniss is alternately a world-weary 50-year-old, and a whiny 10-year-old - and not as a point of character fluctuation but of wildly shifting narration. At points in the story where Katniss might be serious, she is simpering; sarcasm comes across as self-doubt. It's amazing what a voice can or cannot do for a character. Other characters also did not fare well; McCormick seemed to have not read the "stage directions," so a solemn remark sometimes came out as a shout. By the end, I was gritting my teeth in frustration and sometimes outright laughing at the terrible, erratic vocalization.

The story is quite interesting, though, and I will look for it in another form elsewhere.

Super! Ein Hörbuch, das man nicht aufhören kann zu hören!

"Catching Fire" ist genauso fesselnd wie "The Hunger Games". Einmal angefangen, kann man praktisch nichts mehr anderes machen, als zuzuhören. Besonders empfehlen kann ich diese Hörbücher für nervige Fahrten oder beim Warten. Die Sprecherin Carolyn McCormick liest wieder gut. Einige Figuren sind ein wenig albern interpretiert wie Katniss Make Up Leute oder auch Effie, andere hat sie aber gut hinbekommen. Ihre Erzählerstimme (also Katniss Stimme) ist manchmal etwas altbacken, dafür dass Katniss nur 16 ist, aber dennoch kann man allem gut folgen und man vergisst bei der spannenden Handlungen schnell die Erzählerstimme.

Der zweite Teil der Reihe ist wieder toll und ein MUSS, wenn man Teil 1 gut findet. Diesmal lernt man mehr über Panem im Ganzen und das Drama in Katniss Leben spitzt sich zu. Ich will eigentlich nichts über den Inhalt sagen, denn am besten ist es rein gar nichts zu wissen, wenn man die Geschichte hört. Nur soviel: Ich kann gar nicht mehr auf den 24.8.2010 warten, denn dann kommt der dritten und letzte Teil "Mockingjay" raus. Ich hoffe, dass man dieses Hörbuch auf audible.de dann downloaden kann.

Dramatische Wendungen des vermeintlichen "Glückes"

Erneut hat Suzanne Collins es geschafft, mich komplett in den Bann zu ziehen. Das erste Buch bietet bereits unmengen an schockierenden Erlebnissen, bangen Momenten und Einblicke in die Denkweise der Haupt-Protagonistin, welche mich fesselten. Ich habe seit langem kein Buch mehr gelesen oder gehört, welches mich emotional so heftig mitgenommen hat. Collins treibt den Nervenkitzel in die Höhe. Was würdest du tun, um zu überleben? Sie stellt nicht nur diese geschlossene Frage in den Raum, sondern thematisiert auch die heutige Mediengeilheit und frühere (und heutige) politische Unterdrückungsmethoden; allerdings in einem fantasievollen Werk mit äusserst sympathischen Charakteren. Und vor allem: es werden uns unmengen an neuen Charakteren vorgestellt...Feinde und Wohlgesinnte. Zudem stellt Katniss in diesem Buch nicht ihr eigenes Leben in den Vordergrund... Auch im zweiten Band bringt sie den Schock-Moment gekonnt ein. Ich werde hier nichts genaueres über den Inhalt des Buches erzählen, aber empfehlen auf jeden fall. Und wer nach diesem Werk sich noch weiter zu wagen traut, der hat noch immer das dritte Buch vor sich.

Eine außergewöhnliche Triologie

Ich habe lange gebraucht um den zweiten Teil zu hören. Allein nach den Gedanken, die ich mir nach dem ersten Teil gemacht habe, konnte ich mir gar nicht vorstellen, wie die Autorin die Geschichte im zweiten Teil weiterspinnt. Sie setzt noch einen drauf, lässt den Leser genauso geschockt sein, wie ihre Charaktere in dem Buch. Die Fassungslosigkeit, die Wut, der Überlebenswille, dass alles lässt sie uns spüren. Dabei lässt sie ihre Protagonistin ständig in ihrer Unvollkommenheit verzweifeln. Nein Kateness ist nicht eine junge Heldin, unerreichbar für die Leser, sondern sie bleibt menschlich und berührt uns damit im Innersten.
Es ist lange her, dass mir ein Buch so unter die Haut ging, soviel Diskussionsbedarf hervor ruft, wie diese Trilogie von Suzanne Collins

Grandiose Fortsetzung, toll gelesen!

Der zweite Teil der "Hunger Games" - Trilogie schließt in jeder Hinsicht nahtlos an den ersten an.

Relativ bald wird klar, dass sich weder die Hauptfiguren noch der Leser in Ruhe zurücklehnen können. Eigentlich sollten die Sieger der Hunger Games ja nur mehr ihre Pflichten erfüllen müssen, doch Katniss' kühner Einfall, der sie und Peeta vorläufig am Leben erhalten hat, bleibt nicht ungestraft.
Und so ziehen die beiden erneut in eine Arena ein, die diesmal extrem tückisch und ausweglos erscheint. Wären da nicht plötzlich die vielen anderen Teilnehmer, die sich auf ihre Seite schlagen. Wem kann man trauen, was sind die Motive hinter dieser seltsamen Solidarität? In einem grandiosen Finale lüftet sich dieses Geheimnis und lässt den Leser in einer Welt zurück, in der es nichts mehr zu verlieren gibt.

Besonders faszinierend an diesem Buch fand ich die Idee der Arena. Man darf hier ja nicht zu viel verraten, aber dieses ausgeklügelte System, mit dem die Teilnehmer der Spiele an den Rand des Wahnsinns getrieben werden, ist wirklich äußerst fantasievoll. Da bewundere ich die Autorin wirklich für ihre Idee. Ich mag auch ihre Art, die Figuren zu beschreiben, die einem in diesem zweiten Teil jetzt noch intensiver vorgestellt werden. Abseits von Katniss und Peeta werden auch andere Personen greifbarer, spielen eine wesentliche Rolle im gesamten Geschehen. Jugendliteratur vom Feinsten, und auf jeden Fall ein spannendes Leseerlebnis für Erwachsene.

Ein besonderes Lob noch einmal an Carolyn McCormick, die den Figuren unverkennbare Stimmen gibt und die Geschichte mit der richtigen Leidenschaft liest, ohne zu übertreiben.

Fortsetzung erwünscht...

Auch der zweite Teil der Trilogie ist wieder absolut spannend und gut geschreiben.
Mit Katniss durchleidet man zum einen die Wilkür des Kapitols und zum anderen ihren Wirrwar der Gefühle zwischen Peeta und Gale.
Carolyn McCormick liest wieder mit Schwung, so dass man gut zuhören kann und gefesselt ist.
Das Ende ist überraschend und natürlich offen, so dass man sehnsüchtig auf den nächsten/letzten Teil wartet.

Great story, but please get a different narrator

As with the other volumes:

The story is a good one.
Odd, rich, deep, good characters.

The narrator is reading in a whiny voice that makes the main character seem weak and much too girlish for what the character actually is.

Quite frankly, if it hadn't been for the story I would have stopped listening.
As it was, I suffered through the other books in order to hear the story, but the reader nearly killed the experience for me.

Make sure to listen to a sample.
If the voice does not grate on you as it did for me, go for it.

Also, being male, I tire of the predictable love interest angle one finds in books by female authors. Here it is made worse by having an unresolved love triangle and the oh so confused main character.
