  1. The book came packaged nicely and arrived on time. As a huge Hunger Games fan, I was extremely excited to receive this book. I’ve been completely obsessed with Hunger Games for several years, never miss any books or movies of it. The author’s imagination is amazing which draw me into the story so completely that it’s hard to put the book down. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. All in all, this is a really good book which are a great gift for every Hunger Games fan!

  2. The Hunger Games (Trilogy) is one of the most “unputdownable” books to enter the teen market in a long time. The cliffhangers at the end of each volume are so intense, you can’t help but continue on. Knowing this in advance, I decided against reading the series last summer despite the fact that everyone was talking about it. I waited the extra year, and I’m glad I did–even a week was torture when it came to getting my grubby mitts on a copy of Mockingjay.

    For the record, this isn’t a series for everyone. You will be drained emotionally by its end. The Hunger Games is one of the grimmest dystopian worlds I’ve encountered in literature. A lot of characters die, and their deaths aren’t pleasant. This series may not be for you. Then again, those who know me well would say it’s not for me, either. I’m one of the most squeamish people you’ll meet, and The Hunger Games more closesly resembles the movie Battle Royale than I thought it would when I started reading. I really enjoyed the series, though. There are scenes so poignant, they’ll stick with me. Between this and Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, I’ve found that even squeamish ole me can still enjoy a disturbing book if it’s thought-provoking and well-written.

    Now that I’ve warned you about the contents, let’s move on to the meat of this review. It’s hard to go in-depth without giving a lot away, so I decided to focus on the trilogy as a whole instead of singling out Mockingjay and reviewing it on its own (though I do have a paragraph dedicated to it further down). A brief synopsis for the uninitiated:
    The trilogy takes place in the future. The USA has been destroyed; in its place is Panem, which consists of thirteen districts and a Capitol city.Read more ›

  3. Wow. I was barely able to put this book down for a second after the first few pages got me completely hooked. Suzanne Collins narrative here has an immediacy to it that, when combined with the very dramatic life-or-death plot, is incredibly compelling. It’s entertaining, and incredibly disturbing all at once. If this was merely a good read, I would have given it 4 stars, but they say great art leaves you changed after you experience it… and this book definitely did that. Suzanne Collins has, with one amazing work, propelled herself onto my top shelf.

    Parents, caveat emptor! The storyline is brutal. Even though the writing is geared for young adults, the main characters are teenagers, there’s very little physical romance, and the actual violence would probably count as PG-13 nowadays… it’s probably one of the most terrifying books I’ve read in a very long time! Right up there with George R.R. Martin, if not more so. Remember what we learned from Jaws: you don’t actually need to SEE the shark in order for it to be terrifying. Sometimes not seeing the shark is even worse.

    The story is basically about a teenager who is forced to compete in a 24-man-enter-1-man-leaves event. I don’t want to spoil it by saying any more, but if you liked The Running Man, you’ll definitely like this. And if you’re young enough that you don’t remember The Running Man, nor did you get the Thunderdome reference, then I’m just way too old. But take an old fogey’s advice and read this book.

    Amazon, when can I preorder book 2???

  4. Because I was such a fan of Suzanne Collins’ The Underland Chronicles (also known as the Gregor the Overlander series), I picked up The Hunger Games the first week it was out and I feel privileged in a way to not only have read this series as it unfolded, but to have witnessed its climb in popularity over the last 2 years. That popularity is richly deserved.

    Collins is both a talented writer and a gifted storyteller, two things that do not always go hand in hand. In The Hunger Games trilogy, she has created characters that will stay with me and has given them a hard and difficult story that will haunt me. She also managed to keep the quality of the series high throughout which is not always the case with a book series.

    At the conclusion of book three – Mockingjay – Collins hasn’t wrapped everything up in a neat little bow and slapped a happy face sticker on the bow’s ribbon ends nor, IMHO, should she have done so. Instead, Collins provides a conclusion that suits the story, that left room for my internal `if-onlys’, `what-ifs’, `I-wonders’ and `but-what-abouts’, but that I also found satisfying.

    I consider The Hunger Games trilogy to be a great accomplishment for Collins and a true classic for both teen and adult readers of both sexes. I’m very pleased to give it a permanent place on my-favorite-books-of-all-time shelf where, coincidentally, it will sit right alongside The Underland Chronicles.

    Very, very highly recommended.

    Note: Prices will vary, but you may want to price the books out to see if you’ll get a better deal buying them separately. As I write this, you will, so if you’re not really committed to the box… 🙂
