5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Trilogy and Amazing Gift!
The box set includes 3 Hunger Games books - which is the complete set. This would be an amazing gift for any teenage girl or guy and even an adult who likes science fiction. These books have it all - action, drama, adventure, sci-fi, love, loyalty, friendship. All 3 books had me on the edge of my seat, flipping and reading the pages as fast as i can.

3.0 out of 5 stars Started with a bang... ended with a whimper
I've delayed writing this review for months in the hope that time would soften my disappointment. I really, truly wished to like this series (despite the hype) and reading book 1 it seemed I would get my wish.... Alas, it was not to be....
Book 1: Book one started with a bang. We meet our heroine Katniss - she is simple, honest and ultimately good - she...

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)Normally I do not purchase hardcover books because of the expense. I ordered the box set of these books because it was on sale for 50% off, which was a very good buy. In fact, the price for ordering this set was lower than purchasing the paperback versions at a local store. Quality-wise, it was a very good purchase. The books were in perfect condition when they arrived.
As for the content, they were an enjoyable read. The story makes you want to keep reading to see what will happen next, and the descriptive writing is able to make you envision a world different from your own. I had a little frustration with some of the character development, or lack thereof, particularly the main character's seeming lack of awareness about much of what is going on around her and almost complete inability to deal with emotions of any kind. However, since these books are written toward a younger audience, a certain amount of two-dimensional characterization is forgivable, particularly when the story is engaging and moves along at a good pace.
Overall, I'd say it was a good value and a fun read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Books,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)These books are a great read. Amazon shipped them quickly and they were in perfect condition. I bought them for myself after borrowing them from the library and reading them in 3 days. Great books, and it is nice to have them in hardcover in a box set.
5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this more than I would have predicted.,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)Good story and an interesting plot that kept me reading. I finished all the books in one weekend. It was a lot better than I had expected.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)This is an awesome trilogy I personally believe this could easily be the next harry potter in terms of the next big thing. Suzanne creates a world where capitalism and distortion run north america into an absolutely thrilling series with twists and turns at every corner. Id be the first to admit Im not the best at predicting what will happen in books but this is an adventure that makes you not want to put the book down until youre finished. DEFINSTELY A MUST READ!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you wanting more!,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)Although these books were written for the younger generation, they do appeal to all ages. If you are looking for a really good read with lots of surprises and believable fantasy, this it it! Having seen the first movie "The Hunger Games" before reading the book, I anticipate the sequels to be as good or even better now that I have read all three books. The only downfall is, of course, that it will likely be a while before I find another book(s) as intriguing as this series. On the upside, as an added bonus, I got the best price anywhere from Amazon.ca (included free shipping too).
5.0 out of 5 stars The Hunger Games Trilogy (Amazon.ca),
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)I really enjoyed the Hunger Games Trilogy; my daughter purchased the first book for me and I purchased the next two book at Amazon for my Kindle e-reader. I wanted to own all three hard cover books, which I also purchased at Amazon, for my collection. I am very happy with the set and look forward to some day reading them again.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great set!,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)This series should be purchased as a set. Once you finish the first novel, you can't help but start the next book. Gripping from first book to last!
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)When you start to read, you can't stop!!! Even my daughters are reading it and they feel the same. Very good story! You need to read those books because you have more informations than the movie!
5.0 out of 5 stars Received exactly what I was looking for,
This review is from: The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set (Hardcover)I had already read The Hunger Games through an ebook but I wanted to buy the trilogy to display on my book shelf. As expected, the books were delivered fast and in mint condition.
If you haven't read these books, I'd highly recommend reading them (at least the first book) before watching the movie (which I also thoroughly enjoyed)
