These are such a great series of books and I enjoyed all of them from start to finish. I would recommend these for anybody wanting to start in the Dystopian genre, these would be a great start. ( )

The Hunger Games is about Katniss Everdeen and her life in the 12 Districts of Panem. Because of the war, each district is required to provide two victors, a boy and girl, to compete in the annual Hunger Games. Katniss volunteers for her sister when she is chosen and these books tells about her journey through the games and life after them.

I think that these books are also among the best ever written. They tell of personal growth, sacrifice, and love while giving vital lessons on how to be a good person and when to be brave. The Hunger Games series would definitely be best for upper middle school or high school students due to its graphic scenes.

THE HUNGER GAMES: It might not be the most original of concepts, but the first book in Suzanne Collins's trilogy is filled with thrills, surprises and dangerous moments. The slow start sets the setting and characters greatly and the actual games prove to be filled with exhilarating moments as well as touching and emotional sequences. Katniss spends a lot of time alone here, and she really only develops her relationship with Peeta, while other central characters, such as Prim, Gale, and Haymitch, remain superfluous. CATCHING FIRE: The sequel is both weaker and stronger in many ways. The overall plot feels repetitive, the beginning of the book is painstakingly slow but the final half is actually better than the games in the first book. The stakes feel higher and the danger is more palpable this time around. Katniss is surrounded by more intriguing characters this time around, such as Beetee and Finnick, while the central relationships barely move forward. MOCKINGJAY: The disappointing threequel. One of the most disappointing and frustrating novels I have ever read within the YA fantasy genre. Everything Collins builds up in the first two books is retconned or ruined in this one. No Hunger Games to move to plot forward, the "war" is barely seen or felt and so many central things happen but are never shown to us. This book is one major middle finger to the "show, don't tell" rule. The ending is horrible in every possible way, Katniss is an annoying protagonist and the love triangle between her, Gale and Peeta is plain stupid. Add in some unnecessary deaths, pointless scenes of characters doing pointless things and an extremely slow first two-thirds of the book and you have a real disaster. ( )

Me: “Pardon me? There's enough in the books for prequels? There was barely enough in the books for the films themselves. They're not exactly a speculative tour-de-force and they offer nothing that no one's done or said before. Why exactly did they take off?”

Passerby: “Publicity brainwashing pre-pubescent fans. Loathsome books/movies. How about a shequel? A spin-off based on her character.”

Me: “With a role for Sean Connery, perhaps?”

Passerby: “I don't think that will shit well.”

Me: “You mean shit-quel? The entire bunch of these "movies/books" was shit, pure and simple.”

Passerby: “I love it when a pop culture analysis arrives to tell us that this has never been done before. Who, really... never ever been a story or saga about a female who beats men and generally reforms the structure of society? Athene, goddess of Athens was a warmonger. Thank goodness she did not encourage Athens to become... well, Athens. The Amazons... oh well yes, but they got their geography wrong. How about the nasty Hindu goddess who likes eating babies? Or IS fighters who fear being killed by a woman because that is - crossing religiosity - bad karma? The and ors could go on and on and on. The two longest serving monarchs in history have been women. First was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh and then there is Queen Elizabeth II. We have fables about women who dress as men to undertake rebellion. Women who sacrifice everything to protect children, or save a marriage [but it is the same violent thuggee, duh!]. Women have been vastly more integral to history than seems to be told. That exclusion may be sexism, but I cannot embrace that Jennifer Lawrence somehow entrains an original statement of female presence, effect, and renaissance.”

Me: “Well, one of the oldest (maybe the first) dystopian movies was Metropolis with the central figure of Maria as the healer of a civilisation. The books/movies are shameless rip offs of other books/movies; this theme has been with us in film since Metropolis and in print from even before that.”

Passerby”: “I heard it’s a rip-off from another movie...”

Me: “ Have you read both books and seen both movies? I saw Battle Royal before I read the Hunger Games and I'm sorry - the similarities are just too flagrant to ignore. Both were crap; it was the same story transposed to a different time and slightly different setting. Copy? Maybe not, but same-same? Definitely. I enjoyed Battle Royal more - only because it didn't have the saccharine-sweet-sexless-shove-morals in your face Hunger Games has.” ( )

Set in the future, the trials and tribulations of Cat Everdine are allegorical to the difficulties any teenager faces enter the crazy world adults have created and trying to find her place in it. ( )

I'm sure some of my SF comrades will dismiss these novels as "escapist young adult fiction." Fair enough. Maybe I'm just immature (my wife will vouch for that in a heartbeat ;-). But I'd list two recent "young adult" fiction series among my all-time favorites, and The Hunger Games ranks beside Harry Potter in that category for me. Both are simply tremendous examples of the storyteller's art. Both feature protagonists, antagonists, and supporting casts of characters who grab the reader's imagination and refuse to let go. And I'll make a confession: The Hunger Games is the first trilogy I can remember that hooked me so profoundly that I re-read it, start to finish, as soon as I digested the last line of the last book.
