Retrospective Wednesday...Hunger Games Audio Book
The experience was magical. Not only because I had forgotten how wonderful this book really is, but I enjoyed sharing the listening experience with my daughters so much. Carolyn McCormick, the voice actor for the audio version of Hunger Games, is simply astonishing. Her pacing, voices, and inflection help build the tension and the drama of each scene. She created a very believable voice for Peta when he had the gravely throat from illness and dehydration, and, of course, her voice is now Katniss's voice to me.
I encourage you to try an audiobook of one of your favorite books and see if it doesn't make you fall in love with the book all over again. The audiobook of the Hunger Games, published in 2008, would be a wonderful place to start.
