The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins Reviews
#1 in Books

Description

Publisher's Description:
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.

    its ok.

    It's a potentially exciting but gruesome story, but most of the characters were rather flat, much of the plot was predictable (it's not hugely original; in particular, it is VERY similar to the Japanese "Battle Royale"), and there were too many flaws in the plot.

    Love this series

    This series is great for dystopian YA readers. It take place when the ruins of North America form a new country called panem. Every year 24 children from ages 12 to 18 get chosen to fight to the death to remind everyone of the war also known as the "dark days". When katniss get chosen to compete she defies the capital and starts a rebellion.

    Better Than the Movies

    I was Reading the books long before the movie was ever released. I think these books are 100X better than the movies will ever be. There are details in these books storylines that aren't transferred to the movie! Definite must read!

    Timeless! Could read this series again and again

    These books have just the right amount of hook power to keep you up all night just to find out what happens next. I finished all 3 books in a week, they were so good! These are action packed with just the right amount of romance to spark an interest. I will definitely keep them on my book shelf forever to read every couple of years!

    Kept Me Reading

    I was so excited to read what all the hype was about for these books. I was not disappointed with all the action and well-written stories... until the end. I will not spoil it for you, the reader, but I will say the ending of the 3rd (and last) book was super anti-climactic.

    Awesome series!

    Action packed. You get hooked on Katniss right away and learn to love each and every one of her friends and family. It makes you laugh and cry and yell in outrage. It shows strength in women and what it means to love and to lose.

    Good read

    I enjoyed reading all three of the hunger games series. They were all interesting and they were hard to put down once I started them. I would recommend.

    Great Read

    This is a great book that has an interesting take on an utopian world. Although it's a little intense to have kids fighting kids, it was a very interesting read and I'm glad that this is a series and I can keep on reading

    Wonderful book series

    Why I love these books, the character of Katniss Everdeen is relatable, strong willed but with flaws like any real person she feels like such a well written character. The story of Katniss and her triumphs over the games and over President Snow and the Capitol are engaging and these books are page turners.

    Fav trilogy!

    This was definitely my fav trilogy. These books had me coming back for more. Definitely a page turner. I went through all 3 in just a few days. Books reach you in places movies could never.
