The Hunger Games 

Postby Holhol » Wed Aug 03, 2011 7:20 am

Wut...? There's no topic for the best book ever? Shame! :evil:

Yeah, The Hunger Games is a series of three books (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay) which take place in a ruined North America, which is named Panem. The main focus is the Hunger Games, when kid between 12-18 are put in an arena every year and forced to kill eachother. There are 12 districts, each supposed to have one boy and girl as tributes.

Check it out. CHECK IT OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT!

I'm a fan of the HG series. Well, the original at least, I'm almost done with Number 2 (though I'm too lazy to pick t up again to finish :lol: ) and I haven't read the third. But still, it's a really great book. My sister's one of the world's biggest Peeta fans. :XD: And did you know they're making a movie based off of HG?

I know how you feel. I can't find myself to finish the second book either. :wink:

And I'd rather be a fan of Gale-Katniss, but honestly, the Peeta-Katniss makes more sense.

And, er... yeah, I knew that. Honestly, it's horrible casting. :side:

The Hunger Games are alright.

I only read the first one. The begining of the book is awesome.
It's a whole lot of build up, and does well coming up with a
cool, dystiopian world.

The Hunger Games themselves were... dissapointing.
The hunting and battle part of the book wasn't done that well,
not to mention the ending was kind of a cop out.

I loved the begining of this book, but didn't like the end.
"Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now."

Excellent series, those Hunger Games, but I was pretty neutral on Mockingjay (though it was more like I kind of hated it and I kind of liked it.)

I finished Catching Fire a few days ago. The book was an amazing finish. Planning on getting Mockingjay soon...

Hmm... This sound interesting.

Could someone tell me more about the book without spoiling too much.
I haven't read any books in a while and I kinda have a lot of free time. and free time could = books. And books could = HG!
But I'd need to know more first. :D

Basically, it takes place in a ruined North America. There are 12 districts living under the iron fist of the Capitol. Basically, every year, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12-18 from each district are selected to compete in the annual Hunger Games. Basically, they all kill eachother in rather gruesome ways until one is left standing. And I mean some of them can be gruesome. Not only that, it's broadcasted on live T.V..

Despite this, it's a beautifully written book series. I strongly recommend it.

I've been planning to read the Hunger Games for a LONG time now, but I still haven't read it! I need to start before I completely forget!
