Description

Emmy Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany narrates a brand-new special edition recording of the first audiobook in the worldwide best-selling trilogy from Suzanne Collins! 

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. 

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before - and survival, for her, is second nature. Still, if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. 

This special edition audiobook includes a bonus track Q&A with Tatiana Maslany!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

mon préféré

Excellent jeu d'actrice, émouvant, entraînant... Cela accompagne parfaitement le livre. Dommage que cette actrice n'ai pas lu le livre n°3

Now THIS is what Katniss is supposed to sound like

The Hunger Games trilogy has been important to me ever since the first movie came out. I loved the symbolism, the storytelling, the protagonist, and the metaphor for war. I love that the mental health impacts of oppression, traumatic loss, parental mental illness, and war are represented in a way that neither glosses over psychological and functional imparements nor turns mental illness into a plot device. I love the gender role flipping. And I love that such a hard story is written in a way that is compelling, exciting, brutal, and digestible for young and old alike.

But when I bought the audiobook on sale a little while back, I was deeply disappointed. In this medium, the narrator can make or break the story, and the narrator they chose for the trilogy was all wrong for a trilogy that immerses readers so deeply inside of Katniss’s mind. Tatiana Maslany, however, is splendid. I know it was her first time narrating, and voice acting is so different from screen acting, but other than being a bit too breathy at times, I loved every minute. It was like rediscovering the joy of the Hunger Games all over again. I’m ten years older, but this story never gets old for me. It’s so important. I hope they bring Tatiana back to narrate the rest of the trilogy (hint hint).

I also enjoyed the extras. One was a short interview with Tatiana, included after the final chapter, in which she answers questions about what the Hunger Games has meant to her and her experience narrating the first book. The other extra is a PDF downloadable from your library here on Audible’s website, which includes the transcripts of two interviews—one with Suzanne Collins done to celebrate ten years, and the second a forum with Suzanne and Walter Dean Meyers about the importance of writing war stories suitable for children and youth. The extras may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved them.

Thank you to everyone who made this special edition happen. And, um... about the next two books... pretty pretty please?

Terrible Reader

This new version is absolutely terrible. The reader was painful to listen to-it’s as though she’s never heard people speak in real life. She mostly spoke in a monotone, occasionally puting an emphasis in an awkward or incorrect spot. All of her character voices are identical, so it’s never clear who is speaking. Her version of Katniss is sullen and heavily sedated through the whole story.
Don’t waste your money on this version-go to your local library and get the original audiobook version.

the book is amazing

i love this book! my only problem with it is the reader sounded so bored. they should have kept the original person reading instead cause i couldnt even make it to the games before i had to give up. sorry Tatiana, you need to add life to what you read or else you might just ruin it

great story

My 14 year old son and I really enjoyed the story. We are excited for the rest of the trilogy. That said, I really struggled with the readers voices for the characters, I mean really struggled.

I hope she records the others

I have loved these books for years. I heard this was an excellent audiobook so I bought it and I don't regret it at all. I truly hope she records the other two at some point because she gets it. The dialogue is perfectly executed, the voices are great. You feel it. Catherine McCormick is wonderful but she just doesn't pull off the teenager vibe. I'm sad I've finished it already! I guess I'll have to listen again!

Exceptional Narrator for an Exceptional Book

THIS is the audio version I highly recommend. I would avoid the other version that is almost painful to hear. This version is worthy of the book. I very much hope the remainder of the series will be rerecorded by this narrator - her performance is exceptional.

Hunger Games: special edition.

I only made it thru seven chapters before shutting it off. She reads with no emotion with lots of pauses. I felt like I was being read a story at daycare. How can I get the other narrarated version. I borrowed a kindle that got me hooked on audio books and that had a much better reader. The story is great but I can't listen to this one it's really bad.

Finally a narrator that isn't annoying!

Its about time! Finally, someone has realized that having a good narrator is key to selling an audio book! I really hope that they release the rest of the series using Tatiana Maslany. She is absolutely what this book needed!

When can we expect the rest of the series?

I love Tatiana Maslany. The different voices she can do are so impressive. This recording sounds like there is an entire cast. I can’t even listen to the other recording ma of this series by the other narrator. I want more Tatiana!!

That voice could sell me anything!

I already read the book and went for the audiobook just to experience it again, but I did not expect to be drawn in to this the way I was.
Tatiana Maslany does not just read you the book, she lives it before your eyes! 6 out of 5!

Besser geht nicht

Tatiana hat die wohl beste Stimme für Katniss! Sie ist die perfekte Leserin für dieses Buch! Und spätestens bei dem Song für Rue, hat sie es geschafft mir mit ihrer Stimme das Herz zu brechen. Das Buch und die Geschichte an sich lasse ich bei dieser Bewertung komplett außen vor, da ich dieses minimum bereits drei mal gelesen habe. Das spricht wohl für sich ;)

Like I was there to witness it...

I read this story some time ago and loved it. Suzanne Collins did a great job of bringing the characters to life in the book and creating a believable dystopian world.
The audiobook was as breathtaking as the book and Tatiana Maslany could bring me right into the places of action through her voice and reading. Sometimes I felt like I was seeing Katniss fleeing from flames or caring for the dying Rue. It almost felt like I was there. This is something I think is really difficult to do, so I think I can say that this is a great audiobook, worth hearing several times. I sure will;).

Entertaining story. Fantastic performance!

The story is pretty good but not perfect - there are logical "holes" , the world is not explained in depth enough, but maybe that's why it's so entertaining (as long as you don't think about it too much) . The performance is great - I'll definitely re-listen.
Update after 3 months: Tatiana Maslany is probably my favorite reader so far on Audible (for English) . Absolutely brilliant. I've already listened to this book 3 or 4 times. The 2nd part is also good. The 3rd part is weaker.

Superbe production

Great performance not only by the author, but also by Tatiana Maslany as narrator, as she enacts the different characters in a very credible way.

An Experience

First off: The spreaker. She is absolutly incredible! I've heard a fair share of audiobooks (english and german) with okay speakers, good and great speakers. But Tatiana Maslany became my favourite instantly. I felt she elevated this great book to a whole new level for me, like a wonderfull soundtrack defines the experience from a movie.
For the book itself - it is definitely worth it. Yes, it's a book for young adults, but it never really felt like one in any bad way. More just like a book about young people who by default are immature at times. The story is captivating, quick paced. A bit straight forward perhaps, but still with enough emotional depth. I really liked it, I am looking forward to hearing the other two, and I definitely get, why it's a bestseller.
