More About the Author

Suzanne Collins has had a successful and prolific career writing for children's television. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She has worked on several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. She received a Writer's Guild of America nomination for co-writing the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! And most recently she was the head writer for Clifford's Puppy Days. Suzanne Collins made her mark in children's literature with the New York Times-bestselling Underland Chronicles, which started with the acclaimed book Gregor the Overlander. In The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins continues to explore the effect of violence on those coming of age. She was inspired to write The Hunger Games when an idea formed whilst she flicked between television channels broadcasting real war coverage and reality television programmes.

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 ›

These books are being touted as "the new Twilight" but I can tell you that they are nothing like Twilight (& this is from a Twilight fan). All three books start off quite slow but really take off around half way through and you won't want to put them down until you've finished it !! A little gory in places and the main female character is sometimes unlikeable (see I told you nothing like Twilight !!) but they are an excellent read & I would highly recommend them. Best to buy the set, as once you've read the first book, you'll want to read the others, so makes sense to buy them all at once.

As an adult, I still enjoy reading literature that can be appreciated by both children and the older generations alike. I would include the "His Dark Materials" trilogy in that group and now I would also add the Hunger Games books. The characters are well-written, believable and the interaction is never stifled unless its intended to be. The comparisons with other books and movies in terms of the games themselves have already been commented on but its not the games that gripped me. It was by the end of book three, the choices and decisions being made about the war struck home and they were never wrapped up in fluffy words with a complete hollywood ending. Popular characters were killed off, the grief of those left was laid bare to see and I found myself going over and over some of the arguments in the books and comparing them to what is happening in the world around us. I mentioned the Philip Pullman books earlier as they had a similar effect so I must congratulate Suzanne Collins on writing books that are certainly far scarier and graphic than the likes of the Harry Potter books but also have a far more worthwhile message to say or perhaps question to ask the reader. Completely recommended!!!

Ordered from seller ACE_BOOKS, fulfilled by amazon. The books are described as a Trilogy Boxset, but this arrived with just the 3 books shrinwrapped together and NO box, just loose, so clearly not as described and shown in the imagery on the product page. Just so buyers out there know before buying. I'm sure the books content is great, I love the films, but there needs to be more accountability with the descriptions. Bought as an Xmas pressie, so I was obviously a bit miffed.

I managed to scrape my way through to the end of the first book, and could not bear to read any more than a couple of chapters of part two. This review is therefore necessarily about the Hunger Games primarily, and not Catching Fire or Mockingjay. This book reads like a first draft, or a concept outline for a film (perhaps suitably, given its Holywood blockbuster conversion). There is a germ seed here for a truly exciting young adult fiction, but it is tragically under-developed. I say, shame on Ms Collins' editors for not sending her back to her keyboard enough times. This story would have benefited from much greater characterisation of more of the people that Katniss had been sent out to kill. I am disappointed by the inclusion of so many "red shirts" that were dead before we even met them. *Spoiler*: I'll give Collins a tip of the cap for exploring the idea of having to pretend you are in love with someone, rather than having a simplistic romance, but that's as far as my compliments go.

(This is no comment on the films, which I have not seen, and for all I know could be much better.)
