Format:Paperback
I read this trilogy when my daughter (age 11) recommended it. The next day we bought the next two books in the series. I think I read all three books in the series in a week.

The three books in the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins are book 1 The Hunger Games, book 2 Catching Fire and book 3 Mockingjay.

This book tells the story of Katniss Everdeen. Born into Panam, this is one possible Earth further where following a nuclear apocalypse, the world has shrunk to 12 regions dominated by the Capitol. The Regions provide the food and resources which the Capitol enjoys. The Capitol controls the regions through a cruel structure of oppression plus an annual demand for tribute, namely teenage contestants for the Hungers Games. A TV game show which crosses, the Fantastic Seven, with Mad Max and Britains Got Talent.

In Book 1 The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen volunteers for the Hunger Games to spare her twelve year old sister Prim. This is unheard-of and most likely suicidal. The story then tells Katniss's story her departure for the capital and her fight for survival during the Hunger Games.

In Book 2. Catching Fire We see Katniss Everdeen as the unwilling victor of the Hunger Games, who unwittingly becomes the symbol for a growing resistance movement. In a move to silence Katniss and other victors are sent into the arena for another round of The Hunger Games.

In Book 3. Mockingjay Katniss Everdeen is the unwilling symbol of the resistance, but her concerns are focused on her family and her friends. The weakest of the three, this book still provides a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy.

I highly recommend this book. It was the first YA post apocalyptic novel on which a whole genre has been built. It is beautifully written and absolutely un-put-downable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A series that needed to be written? 2 April 2012
By Amy
Format:Paperback
Suzanne Collins has said that she wrote 'The Hunger Games' series to condemn 'reality TV and the Iraq war' and I,as a reader, believe that she has succeeded in her aim. 'The Hunger Games' is a televised competition broadcast across the country of Panem, (a North America of the far future made up of thirteen districts) where a boy and a girl from each 'district' is selected each year to fight to the death in an arena until only one person survives. This synopsis may sound brutal and horrific, and to a great extent it really is, but it also shows us how the power of human nature can fight back from such atrocities. The main protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, who volunteers for the Games so that her sister does not have to take part, is a particularly flawed character and yet this helps to give her the appealing persona that she has. She is first and foremost a fighter and a hunter, but her struggles with her own personal emotions show signs of vulnerability in her personality, something which I believe is needed in order to make her a more rounded character. The 'love-triangle' in the series does at times get a little bit tedious and irritating- there are certain points where the reader will think, 'For goodness sake, just choose!' however this is by no means the main plot line to the novel, but instead an underlying one. Peeta, the boy who is selected to fight with (and indeed against) her is, as Collins describes in 'Mockingjay' the final book in the trilogy, 'the dandelion in the spring'; the character who helps to keep the fiery Katniss grounded when no-one else can. His character compliments Katniss' (even though at times she is really quite awful to him!!). Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars From what age is it suitable? 10 Oct 2014
By Elinor
Format:Paperback
I read the first book in the trilogy to see whether it was suitable for my ten year old son to read. My local bookseller had said that its suitability would depend on what sort of computer games I was happy for him to play! I was completely hooked from the first chapter and read the whole trilogy within a fortnight. Other ladies in my book club have also thoroughly enjoyed the series. Whilst some 10 year olds in my son's class are reading The Hunger Games, I think that they would be more suitable for my son in a couple of years. Certainly the politics of the third book would be largely lost on him at the moment. Whilst the theme of children being forced to fight to the death probably isn't the most suitable for a ten year old, the first book was not as gory as I had expected. It was refreshing that the hero was a strong female. The general feeling of our book club ladies was that it would be suitable from about 12 years, depending on the child.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hunger Games Trilogy 10 Oct 2014
By Billy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An Aunt bought me the first book for my birthday in 2012. She bought it so I would stop rereading Harry Potter over and over, and so I would "move on" and try new books. This trilogy certainly did just that. I can still remember reading it for the first time; it was so magnificent and amazing. I've read many books since but haven't had that same feeling I got when I read The Hunger Games. I get shivers of excitement when I think of those days laid in bed after school and reading it until sleep came. I went into it completely open-minded, I didn't even know whether it was set in the past (which I thought at first for the conditions in District 12 were run down) or the future, which it turned out to be. I actually feel really sorry for people that watched the film first because a big part of it for me was going into it completely open-minded. I cannot describe that feeling. Just amazing! I bought it again after having lent the third book to someone and them having destroyed it (GRRRR). But I'd wanted to buy it again anyway because the others were slightly worn (I'm weird like that). I would have liked it if there was an actual box that came with the books. But no, just a piece of paper that folds around the books (disgraceful!) Ah well, it's The Hunger Games Trilogy and if you haven't read them already, READ THEM NOW!!!! :D
