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 ›

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars hunger games 15 July 2012
By revtyke
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I started out with high expectations of these books because of the publicity surrounding them. The first volume was mildly entertaining but the scenarios had limited credibility and the love triangle with innnocent encounters left a lot to be desired. The second volume simply prolonged the agony and the third provided a somewhat gory 'happy' ever after. Perhaps an extra couple of chaperts at the end of the first volume, and forget the other two volumes. Some touching moments but not on my read again list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as I was hoping 9 Mar 2011
By Catriona Reid VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd heard a lot of good things about these books, and being a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction in general, I decided to give them a go. I don't regret this, exactly, but they weren't exactly what I was expecting.

The first book follows our main character, Katniss, as she participates in The Hunger Games - an annual event in which a group of randomly selected young people have to fight to the death in an arena. The young people are selected from twelve poor Districts (two from each) surrounding a wealthy capital - of course, it's the rich people in the capital who are entertained by the poor kids fighting it out. The whole event is televised for the entire nation to watch. The second two books follow on directly from The Hunger Games, and examine the aftermath of the events portrayed therein, ultimately leading to an attempt at revolution from the Districts.

These books can be read on quite a shallow level as a simple adventure story, but there is a not very subtle attempt at examining what it means to be human and compassionate, how wealth and power can change you, and what sparks a revolution (and what is required to keep it going). The books are well-paced and fraught with tension - I read the lot in about three days flat, and could hardly bear to put them down.

The loss of a star comes from two things: the writing, and the main protagonist. The writing is, for the most part, very straight-forward and not particularly adventurous or descriptive. The reasons for this are clear (the story is told from Katniss' perspective, and for much of her life she has been too focussed on survival to be able to be highly imaginative), but at times it does feel stilted and overly simple.
