Although it goes along a relatively simple story line the emotions are so well depicted and so well interpreted by the reader that you simply can not put your audio device down. I will sure be listening to it once again. It was simple and beautiful, sci-fi and love story, epic journey and family affair all in one. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel.

The Mortal Instruments City of Ashes Audio Book

To fully appreciate it, I re-listened to book one and then continued straight into book two. The first thing I noticed is the different narrator, which at first I thought would be an issue, but it wasn’t. Natalie Moore did a wonderful job and after only 15 minutes or so I forgot she was a different narrator. As the adventure continued in this book you find yourself in a world full of thrills, excitement, puzzlement, joy, sadness, love, war, and the want for more. City of Ashes Publisher’s Summary.

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).

Mockingjay: The Final Book of The Hunger Games Audio Book

It went on so many twists and turns that I had no idea where it would end up. I would guess what would happen next, and though I was right, the book would amp up what just happened to levels I wasn’t expecting. It is quite violent, but that’s the nature of the series, and I applaud it for being so gritty. All in all, this is a series that should be read.
