Recommending a Recomendation

Recently Melanie recommended The Hunger Game Trilogy, over my two week vacation I managed to read all 3!!
I picked up the first one in paper back on discount and then felt dumb as I went back and bought the hardback box set as I had to read the other two! (I passed along my paperback to my sister!)


Sometimes in a series I find that when it comes to the end it's not as good as I was expecting. The ending of the this trilogy was so good I read it twice. I mean I literally just read the last few chapters again! Okay I also read the end of the book as I returned back to the UK and was in a jet lagged haze and wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anything but still an amazing serious!
I have to second Melanie's recommendation!

Here is Melanie's Recommendation.

PS I will be posting again after I've read Battle Royale. Some reviewer on Amazon says that Collins has copied scenes from it word for word. I like to look into such claims :0)

  1. I'm glad you liked them!

    I've been thoroughly tempted by the box set...but I'm still holding out for a soft-cover box set...

  3. I hated how Peeta was taken!! Sorry for any spoilers...but I guess that's what happens sometimes!!
    It's like a quote I once saw that said "war does not determine who is right, but who is left." I feel like that quote sums up the end of the series!

  4. Yeah, I was on the verge of tears reading the last chapter of the third book. Sure, the Games were over and abolished and they were alive and living reasonably good lives, but as I read the final chapter I was just so devastated that Katnis wasn't living the life she should have been living had the games never existed in the first place. But I still loved the books.

  5. SPOILER ALERT! : I loved this series! I think that Katniss is a great heroine, something that seems hard to come by now-a-days. I am happy she ended up with Peeta, and felt it was the right thing for Gale to bow out. I hated that Katniss had to loose Prim after all that, but it's just another reminder that war isn't fair. I'm glad I finally read these! Thanks Melanie!
