Well, to everyone that hasn’t read them, the best way to describe them is amazing. It’s a sci-fi series, set in the nation now known as Panem, the ruins of North Ameica. In the first book, Pamen consists of a rich Capitol surrounded by 12 impoverished districts. Originally there were 13 districts, but the last one was obliterated after a war, when the dirsticts rebelled against the Capitol. Another result of this war was the Hunger Games, in which 2 tributes- a girl and a boy- from each district are forced to participate in. In the Hunger Games the only rule is kill or be killed: only one person can escape the vast outdoors arena by fighting to the death; literally. The winner is the only one alive. In the novel, we see the protagonist, Katniss Everdeen (the characters names get weirded throughout the book) forced to become a tribute in the Hunger Games.
Hope I gave a description which gives the book justice. I think it is absolutely amazing, and definately a worthwhile read.

I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds interesting enough for me to pick it up.

The first two books are amazing and spot on target – Book 3 was powerful in terms of plot, but I had problems with some of the character development. Still, a worthy series for Potter-lovers to get into and discuss!
