Publisher's 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.

Perfect choice for narrator.

I was surprised to find that I enjoy listening to this audiobook more than watching the movie. That happened with book 1, and I anticipate it will happen with book 3.

Amazing in every way.

The book, to start off with is amazing and beautifully written with great characters and has a fantastic story, now couple that with the amazing voice acting by Tatiana Maslany, and you have one of the best audiobooks I know of.

not as good as the first.

This book was good. Not as good as the first, but worlds better than the last. The best narrator ever for a series. I can not say enough good things about Tatiana Maslany.

Not that compelling

I struggled to care about this one. It was somewhat interesting to see how the history culminates into what we know of the Hunger Games series but overall the guy is just a predictably disappointing human.

A good revelation of what is happening today

If you read this series, and take a look at the world today, you'll see that it's exactly what is happening around the world. The media won't tell you or show you the uprisings happening around the world and have been happening since May 2020. millions upon millions of people taking a stand for what is right.

Perfect Narration

I've listened to this audiobook over and over again. I've never been so impressed with a narrator! She really makes the book come to life. Personally i like the second book better than the first and third but I'm a huge fan of the hunger games series and enjoy all three books immensely.

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.
