Hmm, not sure if I am interested in it. Can you talk about what you drew you to these books JR?

Personally, I found the description of the books to be offputting, but once I finally gave in and started reading, the excellent characterization held my attention. The world-building is also top notch.

I thought the concept was interesting but the fact they are kids threw me off. I will put these book on my future read list. I love when books can describe a place or event so well, that you can picture yourself in it.

Finished reading this series a few weeks ago. I absolutely love post-apocalyptic and dystopia fiction, so I really enjoyed this series. I felt that the first book was the best though... I;m not sure why I feel that way. i'll probably read these again and maybe figure that out. These books are not happy, but there is always a note of hope hovering in the despair, and the story proceeds at a fast pace, so you should give it a try.

My wife has been reading these, and loves them. I think I'll give them a try. It seems like a dystopian Lord of the Flies.

I'm almost through with the 3rd one now. I think my sister-in-law turned me on to them. I think I liked the first book the best as well. The dynamics in the first book really seemed to grab my attention better than the second and third. It's a pretty crazy reality that Suzanne Collins created for the characters.

Young-adult sci-fi? Are the books serious enough for picky adult readers?

Absolutely.

I'm an extremely picky reader who loves hard sci-fi, and I couldn't put them down.

I finished reading the third book about a month ago. A-MA-ZING.

The first book is my favorite out of the three. Then, the second and of course, the third book is my least favorite.

Who the fuck is excited about the movie??? I currently have low expectations, but I'm still anxious.

I am definitely curious to see how they recreate the arenas, Capitol, and I'm certainly interested in seeing the cast.
