Publisher's Summary

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.

Better Than The Movie, Best Narrator on Audible.

I listened to the entire book in two days and immediately jumped into Book 2 and 3.
Disney Pixar should be courting young Tatiana Maslany for a new project. Totally enchanting and igniting my imagination and memories of the movies.
Highly recommended.

Amazing!! 11 out of 10

Amazing story, amazing performance!
I’ve read Hunger Games many times, but listening to the audiobook is a wonderful experience.
Tatiana Maslany IS Katniss Everdeen.
Her performance is captivating and pulls you into the story even more. I cried my eyes out when she sung to ____.
I would definitely recommend everyone listen to this audiobook.

Needs patience

The storyline is fairly good, but i found it difficult to relate to the self-absorbed, histrionic nature of the main protagonist. The narrator did such an excellent job of portraying the martyred tones of a bored millennial that I had to periodically turn the book off - it was driving me crazy!

The best audiobook ever!!

The story is so powerful and with such emotion.

The performance captured perfectly the essence that is Katnis and was able seemlessly voice all other characters that it felt like a full cast.


I love that emotion was conveyed so brilliantly that I felt them so exactly.


This is simple the best audio book ever... the performance is just phenomenal and the story is enhanced by that, a story that is so amazing, hard hitting and so socially relevant I didn't know it could get better, but it did

Incredibly entertaining

I loved this book. The thought process of an individual under such duress, the constant questioning of her surroundings and situation, was riveting.
