The Hunger Games Trilogy: these are my issues, let me show you them.

Most of the good fiction/fantasy/scifi literature these days is coming out of the Young Adult and Juvenile areas, so every six months or so I round up the new stuff and go on a reading spree. Around two years ago that included the Hunger Games trilogy (thanks to an ARC copy of Mockingjay). I did a review on that for my work newsletter which made me think about it for a good long while.

The Hunger Games Trilogy Boxset (The Hunger Games #1-3), Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games is a trilogy of young adult dystopian novels written by American novelist Suzanne Collins. The series is set in The Hunger Games universe, and follows young Katniss Everdeen.

The novels in the trilogy are titled The Hunger Games (2008), Catching Fire (2009), and Mockingjay (2010).

The novels have all been developed into films starring Jennifer Lawrence, with the film adaptation of Mockingjay split into two p

No review will do The Hunger Games trilogy justice, no matter how well-written, but I'll do my best.

This is the first series that I loved unconditionally. Suzanne Collins is the first author who made me actually want to pursue reading. For this and many other reasons named below, The Hunger Games is truly remarkable.

I'm obviously very late on writing a review for this series, as there have been four fantastic blockbuster movi

The Hunger Games Trilogy is quite understandably one of the greatest successes in young adult fiction over the last decade. The concept seems to have really appealed to our sense of injustice from a tyrannical ruler and gladiatorial games full of horror, suspense and survival. The totalitarian political and social structure that exists creates the perfect dystopian environment to give someone hope of moving from a subjugated existence where people are governed frugally and ruthlessly

I finished reading the entire trilogy in three days so I guess it captured something in me. Although it's touted as a book for young readers there is something here for everyone. The story is told in the first person by Katniss who unwittingly becomes the "Mockingjay" a hybrid bird that becomes the symbol of revolution as the story enfolds. She is an extraordinary literary concoction, a clueless adolescent who morphs into a mythical huntress without ever losing the voice of a troubled teenager,

To start things off right, a quote from Hunger Games. "The girl’s scream. Had it been her last?" Context: Katniss has been confronted with a girl who had her tongue cut off as punishment and remembers seeing her years earlier just as she was caught. According to memory, as the girl was dragged away, she screamed. Now years later and in the present, Katniss wonders: "The girl’s scream. Had it been her last?" Because people without tongues apparently can't scream.

Movie releases: Hunger Games 2012, Catching Fire 2013, Mockingjay, part 1 in 2014 and Mockingjay part 2 in 2015

I wanted to sit down and figure out the math of it and I figure 7 years. Between books and movies, I have about 7 years of my life invested into The Hunger Games.

I picked up the first book the year it was released in 2008. I had been on a kick where, after diving into the Twilight series (don't judge me, ok you can

After completing this re-reading of the trilogy, all together, I'd like to pull up something profound. They are, of course, thrilling stories, full of clever traps and slick evasions. They are also deeply moving stories, about the desperate people on the outside of rich society. As well, it is the story of one girl, deeply wrapped up in her own small community, who is forced to taken a broader view of her society and what it means. It's a story about how to stage a rebellion. Even m

Amongst the few book I read after seeing the movie (part 1) and I must say I liked having those extravagant pictures in my mind while enjoying the whole story.

It was a very compelling ride! I loved book 1 & 2 more than book 3, but not by much. It was the first series I'd read in ages and got me really hooked to books again - so for that alone I am very grateful.

The story was always gripping, didn't have slow parts and I was involved from start to beginning. I empathized with the characters easil

I had settled down to write a glowing, gushing review that would make the idiots people who haven't read this, drop everything and get their hands on this one and bask in the glow that is Katniss Everdeen.
Yep, you read that right. As good as the plot, the writing and everything else is, the protagonist Katniss, outshines them all effortlessly. She is brave, courageous and strong, oh so strong.

So, anyway, about the review: Nothing I can say/write can't even begin to summarize just how awesome

It has been a long time since I read fiction and I read quite slowly and take only a little time each day for reading. So, my husband suggested this series to me.

Things I heard about this trilogy before reading it:

- It's about kids fighting to the death for the entertainment of the capitol's citizens.
- Just read the 1st book, because nobody likes how it all ends.
- If you do read all of them, you'll notice they get less enjoyable as it goes on.
- Those who don't just outright dislike the ending simply consider it appropriate.

As a result, I read the books with these things in mind. I can say I understand why people would say those things, but I also take is

I can't believe I read this. After I read Twilight and was bitterly disappointed with the last two books in that series, I swore I would never pick up any more YA fiction. Not to mention I feel slightly embarrassed reading YA fiction anyway. Well you know what they say about never say never...

Several co-workers and I exchange books and one passed this one along, saying that she thought I'd like it. I read the back cover description and said "nah." I am not into futuristic, dystopic, sci-fi, Star

Has anyone ever finished reading a book/series and just sat there for a while like, "what did this author just do to me?"

There have been a number of outstanding dystopian fantasies but The Hunger Games is profoundly imagined, nightmarish, psychologically plausible and quiet well written. It's more than just a very clever thriller. The stunning action sequences and the cleverness of concept and execution give this a haunting philosophical complexity.

The Hunger Games trilogy left a bitter taste in my mouth - the taste of failure, of a wonderful opportunity thrown away.

The writer seems to have immersed herself in her fictional world just as much as a high school student would in a tedious, boring homework. Either that, or she is simply unable to focus her thoughts and make the readers actually see through her eyes. The descriptions are dry, the people and the world around them are colorless. It actually feels to me like the story has been cen

A stream of human unpleasantness, cruelty, cynicism, lovingly described pain and brutalities, lascivious dwelling on injury and slaughter and gratuitous death. Basically, these books are badly written torture porn. Deeply unrewarding, lacking in affirmation, and worse, rather insincere due to the lack of emotional impact and paucity of credible characters. Character development is replaced by facile violence whilst empathy is reduced to no less cheap empty sentiments, meaningless words trotted o ...more

Let's face it, the moment we all hear the words 'young adult fiction', our brains jump to the Twilight series. This jump is then followed by Edward-induced delirium or nausea so sickening that you wish you'd had a lobotomy instead of letting Stephanie Meyer infect your life. (No prizes for guessing which side I'm on). It's unfortunate that the Hunger Games trilogy is boxed into the same genre as Twilight. Not only is it infinitely better in terms of story and characterization, it has that one sp ...more

A mockingjay is a creature the Capitol never intended to exist. They hadn't counted on the highly controlled jabberjay having the brains to adapt to the wild, to pass on its genetic code, to thrive in a new form. They hadn't anticipated its will to live.

What did I think? Good question. For the last 2% I didn't think anything, I just felt heartbroken, sad, remorseful, regretful, desperate, full of loss and melancholic. I read these books back to back and it was a lot to take in. The l

The Hunger Games is the first book in a trilogy. It is followed by "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay".

The background is set in post-apocalyptic USA -- only USA doesn't exist any more. Instead, a new nation called Panem, has taken its place. There are twelve districts in Panem and each district solely is dedicated to different requirement. For instance, District twelve is in charge of mining, another in agriculture, another in military, so on. They are ruled by the Capitol under strict rules and re

Something I need to get out of my head, so here goes: in hindsight, when all is said and done and thought about, when Collins can only up the violence in her grand finale by burning to death a mass of children, I've become simply sad at what passes as "books we actually read and recommend to friends and then make into films." Book One, on its own, was a decent spin on the classic Japanese film "Battle Royale". (There is nothing new under the sun, we can forgive Collins for a remake, certainly, a ...more

I never got around to reading this series, though I bought the bundle back in September when it was on sale, until I started seeing the trailers for the movie. Then I saw an extended trailer at the theater and had to read it right now. I'll be going to see the movie, so I knew I had to read the books first.

Hunger Games: I thought the first book was outstanding. Very compelling and somewhat horrifying, but the pacing and narrative voice sucked me in. As the mother of 11 and 16 year old boys, I di

I know there has been more hoopla about reading this book all over the place. This is the first book I read since the HP Series finished. Not sure if I have been unable to accept that the Wizarding World is over in a way. For me It will never be over. I read and saw many of my online friends tweeting and shouting about The Hunger Games, so I decided it to give it a shot. I was not sure I was going to like it. Still I went to the expense of purchasing the trilogy, just in case. I did not want to ...more

Katnis is a compelling character living in a time of deprevation and oppression. It is her actions in the face of this world that set her apart, that inspire others to action. But it is her humility, her lack of belief or understanding in her own self worth that make her so lovable. For the most part Katnis keeps her feelings and emotions guarded or hidden. These things make it hard for her to accept at face value that anyone could love her, or want to help her.

I absolutely LOVED everything about this trilogy! Suzanne Collins possesses all the talent I have been looking unsuccessfully for in a modern author for a VERY long time- which is why I mostly stick to re-reading classics. Thank you, thank you Ms. Collins for restoring my faith in fiction after the fickle and meteoric rise to super-fame of much less talented storytellers over the past decade!

This story is so steadily driven toward it's end goal, and the character development is refreshingly, and
I snagged this trilogy during an ebook sale in late September 2011. I had already read the first novel, the Hunger Games (click here for my review) in April 2010, and really hadn't planned on continuing. But the sale price was just too good to pass up.

I started Catching Fire on October 13th (no it wasn't a Friday) and should have it finished before the ides of October 2011. As promised, I finished reading the second novel on October 15th (click here for my review).

I'm late to the party with this one, so I won't bother to write a full review.

I read the whole trilogy after seeing the first movie. (I am, of course, assuming that they will make the others.) After seeing the movie, I knew much of what to expect in the book, although I have to say that it was nice to see some of the things I'd inferred from the action of the movie laid out explicitly in the book.
