Annabel ♥ I was 12. How old was everyone else? Also--what do you think is the best age to read it? I think 11 or 12 and up is fine. So therefore, 6th grade & up.

12, did not like the series.


Catfish :D 11.

My seven-year-old cousin announced he wanted to read this yesterday, and everyone was like, sorry, it's a little 'old' for you. XD

Christina i had just turned 14, if i had been any younger, i think i would have wasted a series, because i wouldn't have understood it quite yet. i ended up re-reading them 3 times, and each time i got such a better understanding.

Melissa 14.

It depends on the kid. Some would not be able to read it much younger. But (for example) I know someone who reads whatever her older brother is reading, and he's about seven years older.


Irene I read what my older sister reads, and she's 9 years older. I read the Hunger Games series when I was in 4th grade. Like many other people, I read "Adult Size" books since I was in 3rd grade.

Paul Hulford 40. Thought the first book was brilliant.


Christi 45...I absolutely loved it. I confess, that I can't wait to see the movie. The trailer looks enticing and aligns with my picture of the characters.


Charlotte 15 :) I am 15 lol


Lyssa Ruiz 10


Jacob I was 9


Connie I was around 9 or 10


Rebecca It was this past summer, so I was 32, which I still am for another month.

ETA: I have a 9 year old daughter and I don't think she's ready for this series. she's read things that have death and violence but they were more "fantasy violence" a la Redwall and Harry Potter.

Yeah, and also she really has no interest in them. We both just read and loved Collins' Gregor the Overlander. It's not like there are no books out there for tween readers - we are so lucky to have such an amazing assortment of classic and new books to choose from. There will be time for older books like The Hunger Games.

Cat I was 10 and loved it

I could have handled it at a younger age than 11 or 12, but that sounds like a good average age for them.


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)
