I absolutely loved this book trilogy, so much so that I have also been ordering the books for my friends. Has anyone else read them and if so what did you think?
I read them all and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! I even gave them to my mom to read and she enjoyed them too. I started reading them when the first one came out a few years ago then I had to wait and wait for the others to be written and published. So lucky all of you who waited and can read them one right after the other
I've only read the first one, because I was able to borrow it from my aunt. I haven't made it to the library yet to read the sequels. It was absolutely thrilling; I couldn't put it down! The characters seemed believable in a story that is unreal. It displays an array of various versions of humanity that it's impossible not to relate to some part of the story. I would recommend it for teenagers or any age (except for children). It was simply marvelous!
The first one is the best in my opinion but I definitely recommend reading the other two when you get the chance. I, like you, couldn't put it down and I read all three books within two days. I see they are making a film of the first book too which should be interesting...
I read the first before the sequels came out. It was amazing. The wait for the sequels was excruciating. I've seen some screen shots from the film. It looks promising. The only thing I've found that I didn't like is that Peeta and Gale looked too clean. Thay didn't look as hard up as the book portrays them.
Yeah I know what you mean about the screen shots. Films hardly ever are as good as the books - the only exception in my eyes is the LOTR trilogy although many would disagree with me there. Still it will be interesting to see how it is interpreted for the big screen!
I read the trilogy and loved them all. I agree, the first one is the best. I found myself torn between Peeta and Gale though. I won't say much more since you haven't read the others yet
I loved, loved, loved all three of the books! I cannot wait for the movie to come out. I hope it does them justice and does not deviate too far from the books.
I have to say that casting Woody Harrelson as Haymitch was genius. After Zombieland and his amazing role in A Scanner Darkly, I think he'd be an awesome addition as the drunken mentor
Nice, I hadn't heard that. I loved him in Zombieland.
Elizabeth Banks is playing Effie Trinket. The cast is a good one. The movie looks promising. Plus, they've been doing much better with book/movie transitions lately.
I just started reading this book this morning and I'm already hooked! Lots of people have been recommending it to me. I'll let you know what I think when I finish it!
I've read all three books, and I absolutely loved them! I couldn't put them down! I would reccomend them to anyone looking for a good, quick read!
I'm also super excited about the movie! Does anyone know when it is scheduled to come out?
I'm hoping that the time will go fast. I'm thinking about starting the series over again to hold me off. Without release dates on the books to hold me back though, I think it'll only manage to kill about a week or so. Not nearly enough
Wahh! I want the other two in the series! I read the first one in like two days and I am looking forward to the movie coming out.
The Hunger Games was recommended to me by a colleague from another school and it just so happened to be a part of our school's book fair the next day - so of course I had to have it - and I am so glad she told me about it. Although it was a little hard to get into in the very beginning, I quickly couldn't put it down. I read the other two in quick succession. I wasn't too happy with Catching Fire in the beginning as it took half the book to really get started and I was starting to get annoyed by Katniss' lack of emotion and her pure indecision and lack of confidence. She lost the strength and drive of the first novel and I really just wanted her to get over herself already. Mockingjay was better than the second, with twists and turns I hadn't expected at times.
I am looking forward to the movie in March - I'd love to see how they bring the world of Panem and the Hunger Games to life.
My sister, mother, and I devoured the books! I am truly excited about the movie. Jennifer Lawrence was a great choice; for a newcomer she's already shined in films like Winter's Bone and X-Men: First Class. Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) is another favorite.
I read the first one because my cousin enjoyed it so much. The first book is a solid read, Collins does a good job of creating suspense. Yet the second two books of the trilogy were a let down. Maybe I'm a little older than the YA demographic, but I just didn't get much out of them. I thought the ending was especially cheesy and unneeded. Yet, even though I thought the second two books were not good, I did read them in two days--so Collins has something going for her.

What books did you read as a child between the ages of ten and fifteen?I know there are probably a few Hubbers who were born before 1950, and was wondering what books they read as kids. I'm thinking about a Hub along these lines highlighting some I read and still remember names and titles, even...

I'm a YA author, so my list gets pretty exhaustive of "favorite books" in the children's world. Among them? ALL of Tamora Pierce's work and Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Give me a good girl adventure and I'm happy as a clam--and it's work that I'm still pretty...
