I had the opportunity to purchase the complete Hunger Games Trilogy for the low price of five dollars on Amazon.ca a few weeks ago, so I thought "Why not?" If only to see what the buzz about the novels were, even though I'm not really the target demographic.

I found the series to be a very easy read of a dystopian society set in the not so distant future. If you take two of the Bachman books, "The Running Man" and "The Long Walk" and make a hybrid of them for teen readers you will end up with "The Hunger Games Trilogy". The themes of the book; starvation, oppression and eventually, revolution are disturbing topics for young adult readers and Suzanne Collins taps into the psyche of her characters very well.

The series is well written, with the exception of a few chapters and has a nice pace to it. I would recommend it if you are a fan of dystopian fiction.

Well...I wasn't sure about the book as I started it.. I had not read too many books with a teenage girl as the heroine..
As it turned out I couldn't put the books down ..It is very exciting...the taste in my mouth at the end of the trilogy was ...I just read something a teenage girl would read..I liked it ..didn't love it.. I think I made the mistake of watching the DVD...It was not true to the book and that brought the whole thing down a notch for me... I did not care for the movie at all...poor acting by the lead..nothing at all like the book described her..and anybody but the stereotyped Woody Harrelson...please

This trilogy is geared towards the young adult reader. The language is easy to understand and follow. The size and style of the font made for an easy and enjoyable reading experience.

I picked up the series, having recently seen the first of the movies and being curious to see where it was going... without having to wait a year for the next movie to come out.
The story is entertaining, both on the big screen and within the books.

I removed a star, because I prefer a somewhat more complex plot with more convoluted twists and turns. For the target audience, the writing style and plot type is superb.

I couldn't put these books down. Surprises at every turn, with a heroine that I pitied, identified with and even disliked at times. An epic struggle through the worst of human nature and frailty, with a bit of hope and healing in the end.

Met and went past what was expected. Suzanne brought to light a dimenion of a life that could really exist. Frome page to page you wonder who will die next and what will be the final out come.
We need more authors of this calliber.

Besides the moralizing tone (a teen love triangle with no sex?), this was a great read. The characters are well developed, the plot twists and turns, and it's anti-capitalist/imperialist/colonialist to boot.

I definitely enjoyed this series but the last book mockingjay was upsetting to say the least about the end and the poem at the end made very little sense at all to me but all in all not a bad series to read.

The box itself could use a cover so the books aren't just hanging out it. Other than that it's perfect, it will make a great gift.
