The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins?
Good read or not? I've heard a lot of good things, but that could just be hype because of the movie coming out soon... Any suggestions?
Haven't read the book yet, but I have a friend who recommends it. I trust her taste on a good book, and I think The Hunger Games is one of those that will keep you up all night.
My friend is OBSESSED. She convinced me to buy the first two, but I haven't gotten around to reading them yet. She's an avid reader though, and I trust her opinion totally. She says they are really good, and that if you're into young adult fiction, these are the books to read. hope that helped!!
I read the book just recently and I can say, personally, that it's one of the best books I've read in a long time. It gives me hope that not all young adult fiction is going the way of the 'teen paranormal romance'. Be warned, however, the book is incredibly graphic (gore) and touches on deeply complex subjects. It's not a hard read, but it will leave you thinking about it long after you finish it. I think that's why I loved it so much; it is evidence that young adult fiction can be just as engaging and thought provoking as adult fiction.
Read it and loved it. It deals with raw human instincts for survival. Relationships, trust and other fundamental values are given light here. Of course the blood and gore adds to the appeal. I'm looking forward to the movie as well. I just hope the movie gives it justice.
Read it...liked it, but it's definitely got to be a genre of book you like. I would suggest the first book just to see if you can get into it...if you do, you'll likely be interested in the trilogy.
I read the entire trilogy. The first one is my absolute favorite. I think the second and third go in a direction not many people were expecting, but that's kind of the appeal they had to me. I wasn't a huge fan of the final book; I felt some things weren't resolved well enough, but I would definitely recommend them. From what I've seen in pictures and the trailer, the movie looks like it'll do the book justice. Hope this helps!
I heard about the trilogy awhile ago and although I thought the premise was interesting, I didn't think it appealed to me. Curiosity got the better of me and I just read the first book last week and I couldn't put it down. It's a quick read, so I think if you are slightly interested give it a try. Even though it didn't seem like my kind of book, I got invested in the character and from there it was very suspenseful and entertaining.
I loved the series. I am a young adult lit junkie. There is a lot of great YA lit books out there. Don't judge the genre on Twilight. The Hunger Games is one of the best books I've read. Like other here said, once you start it, you won't be able to put it down.
I can give you a list of other excellent YA books that are written well, explore complex themes and make you think.

I liked the book and the movie but I was left wanting. I kept asking myself "why is there country like this, why is this happening?". I wish there had been more back story, what do you guys think? I mean, is it really worth all the hype?
