had lots of potential on a borrowed idea.,
This review is from: Box Set (Hunger Games Trilogy) (Paperback)
After reading these books i can tell you they are smoothly written. based around an idea from battle royale if anyone read or seen the films?.(got to say suprised she hasnt been done for this unless an agreement was made). the has plenty of potential for great battle scenes and much cat and mouse, but sadly misses the mark and is more worried at repeating internal feelings when people are trying to kill you.
anyone who like twilight saga will like this style but maybe she doesnt over do it quite like Meyer. Some of the characters have been well made but no depth of their lives is really shown until the third book. sadly one of the better personalities is cut out from book 2.
the planning is a bit pell-mel and things really dont make sense like peetas announcement before games in 2nd book. an easy fact that could be disproved easlily that seems the main uprising of the capitol. if you try not to dig to deeply is a satisfactory read but if u analyse or question events-THIS IS NOT FOR YOU! it will drive you mad the chances to kill etc missed. as i say anyone whos read twilight and fancied a little more action than waffle would like this.

I'm assuming she didn't get done for it, because the children are on the island for different reasons. In Battle Royale, the children are being punished for mistreating teachers and boycotting school, etc. It does hold similarities, but then Battle Royale holds similarties to Lord of the Flies, because it's about young boys that begin hunting eachother on an island. Nevertheless, I enjoy all three stories. Though, I personally thought the The Hunger Games was actually better as a film than a book. :]
