In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, 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 dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

I loved reading this series. I read through it so fast and enjoyed every minute. When I was done reading all three books I was sad it was over. Really great story.
I read all three books and really enjoyed them all! I love how the stories are easy to follow, have developed the characters fully so it's easy to connect with their stories and the flow of the books makes them easy to read and quickly! I finished the whole series within a few weeks. If you are thinking of seeing the movies I definitely recommend reading the books first.
Best series I've ever read. My husband hates reading, but my son and I loved it so much that even he read it. He LOVED it. The whole family is hooked. No doubt we'll all read it again.
The Hunger Games Trilogy are amazing. Super intense and addictive! I read through them SO quickly. Reallly grab you and immerse you in the world of Katniss.
i have this series it is a great group of books to read keeps you on edge and wanting more, it is a hard book to put down and waiting for the next one. it is highly recommend for all ages
These are really great books, I flew through them in a couple of weeks. Thankfully I was lucky enough to read them before the characters were on the big screen. It was awesome coming to my own idea of what each of them looked like as I read the series. Definitely recommend this read!
This is a fabulous series that keeps you on your toes from start to finish. I highly recommend reading theses books from junior high and up. You won't be disappointed.
Great series. I ploughed through all three books in less then a week. Got addictive when into the tale. Enjoyed watching the movie version but loved the books so much more. Excelent tale good for tweens on up to enjoy reading. Donated set to daughter's classroom.
I enjoyed the series a lot, especially the first two books. The third one was less interesting, but the storyline did carry through pretty well. There were a few things that didn't quite add up, and there were points in the books that I disliked, but it is a very good series.
When I bought the trilogy, I did not leave my house until all 3 books were done. This is a very easy read, but still very captivating and engaging. I couldn't wait to watch the movies after reading these. Love love love.
