I clasp the flask between my hands even though the warmth from the tea has long since leached into the frozen air.

I decided to continue my re-read with the audiobook for book two. While I enjoyed listening to the book, I was disappointed with the narrator (Carolyn McCormick). She totally missed the character, and after listening to Tatiana Maslany narrate the special edition of The Hunger Games, it was even worse. McCormick’s narration was irritating and didn’t fit Katniss’s character at all. Her voice is breathy, whiny, overdramatic, and grating. I think she would be good in a different book, like maybe a historical drama.
I knocked off one star for the narration, but I loved the story and would have given it 5 stars.
