Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins

Loved this book. Its an interesting story about a young girl in a much changed government that has completely taken control of everyone.

When some had risen up against the government they were defeated & in turn received a punishment. This came in the form of 2 children (ages 12-18, boy & girl) from each district being drawn to compete to the death in the annual "Hunger Games."

Its a good read. The 2nd book is "Catching Fire" which is on hold for me at the library. If you can get both at the same time because it ends so you need the next book desperately. I'm going nuts waiting.

The author is currently working on the 3rd.

It is a young adult read but I love those sometimes to take a break from hard to read novels.

Thumbs up from me & I will read the next as soon as I can.

I loved this series. My son also read both and my husband is on the second. Something for everyone. I thought the third (can't wait!) was coming out this year?

I read this with my class.. (I'm a senior in high school)
At first I was like really this is getting so weird with how they were living and everything and all of a sudden I was pulled into the book like I've never been pulled into a book. Haha I actually never really enjoyed reading or listening to someone read. But this book got me hooked I couldn't wait for class everyday. It was like I was living in the book.. I honestly loved it sooo much! And so did most of my class and my class has anyone from preppy girls to insane drug addicts and for mostly everyone to like shows that it really is a book for everyone!!

Also heard there is going to be a movie on the book don't know when its coming out though?

Glad to hear that others really enjoyed the book as I did!

I love, love, love the first two and can't wait for the 3rd one! Lionsgate bought the rights to make the movie but I think it will have to be rated R to get the full effect of the book.

August can't come fast enough!!!!

I read all 3 of these over 2 days & I loved the series! I literally couldn't put it down which really annoyed my husband I loved the first 2 & liked the 3rd. My daughter is 10 & she is dying to read these, but I'm going to make her wait a few years. She's reading the Gregor series that Collins wrote & loves it.

Loved this series also! My daughter who was 11 at the time really enjoyed reading all 3 books. I thought the first two were better than the last.

I've been wanting to read these since you mentioned them on facebook Steph, as you know they're not available on the kindle in the UK yet I have been reading her other series, Gregor the Overlander though and am about to start book 4 (not sure how many there are)-and they are excellent too, she's a fantastic writer I'd definitely recommend them xx

DD and I both can't wait for the movie! I was unsure at first with Jennifer Lawrence being Katniss but after seeing the first pictures of her made over I think she will be great! I'm also excited to see Liam Hemsworth as Gale.

I saw the trailer a few days ago and wish I hadn't -- I don't want to wait until March! It looks amazing, and I rarely get excited about movies, especially books made into movies.

I loved the first two books, and the third was good but I didn't like it as much. It was still a great series though.
