Avatar ImagePadfootLover4ever says: Great choice! I love this trilogy. It's my second favorite series. HP being #1 of course. I really recommend this to everyone!Avatar ImageSlyBones says: I've never heard of this series O_oAvatar Imagebutterbeer bottle says: Ooh, I LOVE the Hunger Games!!!Avatar ImageKiwiBrian says: I have never heard of these books. What are they about?Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Great choice!Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: LOVE hunger games :) amazing books Avatar Imagebutterbeer bottle says: 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.Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: I did not know it. Thanks butterbeer bottle.Avatar ImageLonewolf_ says: I love those books, but they are pretty creepy, I think ^__^Avatar ImageLonewolf_ says: *^__^Avatar ImageSigourney1990 says: I wish I could take part in this but I'm already swamped with reading for university/ my dissertation :/ ah well, I'll get round to it eventually :)Avatar Imagelongklaw says: Excellent book. I just finished it yesterday.Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: never heard of this series but sounds interestingAvatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: I've never heard of it, but it sounds interesting enough for me to pick it up.Avatar ImageAgrippa1 says: 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!Avatar ImageSkye-walker says: (up coming opinions everyone, hold on to your socks...) The first book is amazing. Plain and simple, wonderous writing skills at thier best. Until the second book. IMO, even better than the first. Very richly detailed, and very dark. BUT I would recommend, after reading Mockingjay, to stop at the second book. Though you will want to continue to the end, be prepared for disappointment. I've spoken to many others who have read all three books, and though a small number were satisfied with the ending, the majority (myself included) were utterly disappointed with Suzanne Collins' execution and conclusion to the fantastic trio. Highly recommend Hunger Games and Catching Fire, but am regretting reading Mockingjay. Fair warning to all, hopefully you'll get more out of it than I did! Happy reading!Avatar ImageCatherine says: AMAZING!!!! my friends were just nagging me to read them and now im half way though the first!!!!!!Avatar ImageTarana says: I've just finished Catching Fire (the 2nd book). I think the first two books are great. Because I've read them in Dutch, I'm waiting for the third book to come out in Dutch as well (end of november, so a few months to go). Thanks for your advice, Skye-Walker, but as you realize, it would be very hard to follow. At least, I'm warned, and I won't get my expectations up too high.Avatar Imageharrygetsme says: don't think i'll be able to participate in the book nook, but i might just have to check out the books on my own!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: hmmm interesting, never knew it would come so highly recommended to be on my reading list. I've heard of a movie adaptation I think and I'm pretty sure I stupidly passed it off as a Jack Ryan thriller. Well this sounds good, I'd give it a bash somedayAvatar Imagechayishurr says: Wow I happened to pick up the Hunger Games (after alex day -nerimon- on youtube said how great it was) and I love it! Yes I'm only 1 chapter in, but so far it's really good. I have tons of reading to do for school but I want to read fun stuff too.Avatar Imagediv says: sounds gud.. thanks butterbeer bottle..:)Avatar ImageBeksey_S says: never heard of it put i think i will give it a go.... once i have read all my other books lolAvatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Oh, definitely one of my favourite series......... Amazing, and so powerful. Also, though there's the romance and love triangle, it doesn't become the only thing the books are about, but rather shifts to the background as the more important, forceful messages about society and war and loss etc come forward. Hey, I cried at the end of the last one. Enjoy reading it!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: These are AMAZING books! My second favourite series!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: These are AMAZING books! My second favourite series!Avatar Imagegingersnap188 says: Just finished Mockingjay a few hours ago! Oh I love this series so much!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: De book nook!Avatar Imagemelloncollie says: These books are really good especially Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Mockingjay was nothing at all like I expected but I still enjoyed it.Avatar ImageElphabaROCKS1 says: Excellent choice! The trilogy is one of my favorites!!!
