5.0 out of 5 stars The Hunger Games win everytime, 16 May 2011
Knowledge of The Hunger Games trilogy came about by a casual conversation over lunch with one of my colleagues. While I was discussing how enjoyable the Harry Potter books were and that I was looking for something to read along those lines, she told me about The Hunger Games. Now whilst there is no magic (of sorts) and the world is scant of dragons, what the books contain is a delightful and encapsulating story, told in first person of how a young girl is catapulted from obscurity into a post apocalyptic world where the fight for her life bends far beyond simply fending off starvation in her colony but to a much darker plane where she must battle for her life within an arena......with 23 other contestants in a "last person standing" fight to the death.

These books simply immerse you immediately and engage you with the main protagonist, Katniss Everdeen and her internal and external struggle to fight in the games.

The three books bring you along at a rapid pace and invite you into the storyline without necessarily making the path obvious. That's what I loved about The Hunger Games....it is raw (sometimes graphic), fast and there are surprises at every corner.

A recommended read for those who enjoyed Eragon, Nicholas Flamel, Harry Potter etc. Contains mature references and definitely not for the young (pre-teens).
