The best one of the entire triology

In my personal opinion, i like this book the best. the second one was a great, awsome follow-up but no where near this level. the third one again, was a great ending, but was a tad bit confusing


I really liked the book

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins is one of my favorite series! I personally liked the first two books(The Hunger Games and Catching Fire) better than Mockingjay. I had never really heard of the series(I know, surprising that I hadn't heard much about the series XD), until one of my best friends told me I should read them last summer :) Which reminds me it's about time to read them again! ;) But I totally recommend this series! But I personally would only recommend the series to ages 12+, because of the violence etc

Great book

Just love the book and the whole series, very well written.

Hunger Games

I loved this book. The writing style was annoying at first, but once I got used to it, I couldn't put the book down.

Love it!

A must read!

better than the movie

While the movie was enjoyable, I was pleasantly surprised at how compelling it was to read the book. The characters are relatable and the pacing of the story is terrific.

The book of survival

What you'll like about this story is the action. Katniss is brave which she shows throughout the games. she is an important person because she volunteers in order to save pictures her sister. The author made her special making her a character who not afraid to help others.

Hunger Games

This is a great book to a kid in grades 5 and up!!!


I love the action in this novel. It is absolutely captivating, I couldn't put it down!


Most modern books have a similar plot but I still liked this one the best. A teen girl named katniss everdeen lives in a dystopian futuristic world. Every year twenty four young people fight to the death.

so good!

Couldn't put this book down once I started it! Great dystopian plot with a strong female character. The first is the best of the trilogoy, but they are all pretty good. Might not be good for younger advanced readers as it does include deaths of several characters (I mean, they are fighting each other to the death, so that's bound to happen...). Enjoyable read that makes you think about social boundaries and power.


I don't really know what it is about these books but I love them so much I have the whole series it is amazing

hunger games

it's just volince!


Highly recommend this AMAZING book!

The Hunger Games

It is sickening to think of kids killing each other, but that is a characteristic of the book that makes the reader think. It made me think about how glad I am that our world isn't like that. Suzanne Collins was very creative when coming up with the plot for The Hunger Games and even more so with adding a romantic twist to it. If you liked The Hunger Games, I would suggest reading the next two books in the trilogy: Catching Fire and Mockingjay.

Fast action with great character personalities

Loved the action packed adventure with bonus political dialogue about government and Utopian socities. A big hit for a reason


it is a really good book

Great book

The book builds up the perfect amount of suspense, but also give the sad feeling that in reality, there is little freedom and happiness within the seam.


After hearing so much, I finally read it and LOVED it! Well-written and thought provoking, it makes you hang on to every word and you keep turning the pages no matter what.
