Set in a dystopian, alternate version of North America known as Panem, this is an action packed and engaging trilogy, but somewhat lacking in depth. The protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, is a teenage girl from one of Panem's outlying districts. These districts have been subjected to a multitude of punishments ever since their rebellion against Panem's Capitol many years ago - chief among which is the Hunger Games, an annual contest in which teenagers from each district are forced to fight to the death in a televised competition. When her younger sister is selected for the Hunger Games, Katniss volunteers to take her place, and in so doing is drawn into a political struggle . Read the complete review

I recently bought the set of these books by Suzanne Collins after reading the excellent reviews in Amazon. I enjoy books with an element of supernatural that offer a different twist on our world, such as Charlaine Harris`s True Blood series or Harry Potter, because they offer an escape and allow your imagination to run wild, and the Hunger Games does exactly that. The novels are set in the future in what used to be North America but in a world that has been decimated by war and famine until all that is left is the thirteen districts and the Capitol, which rules over the districts that exist to provide food and raw materials for the capitol citizens. In order ... Read the complete review

I ordered these book for two reasons. The first was that I needed a good read for my upcoming holiday and second that I just saw the film and was 'hooked.' When I saw the box set at such a cheap price (I paid 10.00 pounds with shipping) I could not pass up the offer. I would like to comment more on the product itself as a previous reviewer has given a good thorough description of the books that I would agree with. (EDIT: Please find below brief descriptions on the books below, due to further demand.) When seeing the words "box set" I expected all three books to be inside some type of holding for the books. Unfortunately this is not what ... Read the complete review

Are you a Hunger Games virgin? If so, BOOM. Penetration time. If you haven't read these books, I highly recommend doing so. They are great teen reads, but adults can also get enjoyment from them too. The books are very easy to read- only took me four days to read all three! The plot of the books are super exciting. I won't ruin it for you, but the general outline of the story is: twenty-four 12-18 year olds being put into a huge outdoor arena, to fight to the death for the entertainment of others. Sounds pretty awesome if you ask me! The main character in the books is Katniss Everdeen, a 16 year old girl living in the poorest area of Panem ... Read the complete review

The hunger games trilogy has to be the best trilogy I have read in a very long time. It's very well written and addresses some political issues of killing in an effective way. The way the author portrays the main characters and shows their conflicting feelings of terror and the will to live has you on the edge of your seat rooting for the characters in a way you never have with any other book. You feel that will to live with them and feel that you are a part of the hunger games as well fighting in that arena to live. The only down side is that the controversial plot will not be to every book lovers liking and some may find that the author went too far with the ... Read the complete review
