The Hunger Games trilogy - July 23rd 2012, 07:09 PM

Is anyone else as crazy over it as I am?

When I first heard of The Hunger Games, it was at a very strange time of my life where the messages in the book spoke to exactly what I needed to hear and reflect on. Not so much at the moment and in the later books, but now I'm on the third book and it's still a very engaging story.

I enjoyed the books (haven't seen the film yet) but I'm not like crazy about them. They're good but in my opinion not that good if you get what I mean?

I think it's just because I read a lot of dystopian novels and I thought others were better than these. Also, I didn't really like Katniss as a character

I'm one of the guilty ones who has only seen the film. It was good, but I don't know if I'll bother with the books yet. I might give them a go, but I'm not sure.

My whole school is obsessed with them. No joke. I've only read the first one, seeing how I have yet to get my hands on the other 2. And I thought it was pretty good, but not really my sort of book. I've read a lot of books that were better.

And I saw the movie, and that was good too.

I've read them, they're alright. Nothing amazing. I did read them all in 4 days though...

Re: The Hunger Games trilogy - July 23rd 2012, 08:05 PM

I really liked the movie. People say it omitted out a lot from the book but it also added a lot that the book didn't have - like the Gamemakers, and all those things Katniss didn't directly have access to. It was a more powerful foreshadow of what to expect in the later books than anything in the book itself, I think.

Yes. I have read virtually all of the classic dystopian novels out there, and I wouldnt necessarily rank these books as part of them. But there is something incredibly refreshing about a book that's written explicitly for young people - the simple language, the seeming simplicity of the whole thing which makes it easier for me to engage with complex meanings with the heart as opposed to the head, the lack of sexual explicitness, etc. I really appreciate it and it helps me feel connected to the story.

I LOVE The Hunger Games! I'm a bit obsessed with them. I have read all of the books. I also saw the movie. They did change some in the movie but I still liked it.

I've read all of them & although I think they're great books, they're honestly just too depressing for me to read over & over

They're great but I'm not obsessed or anything. Although, I did cry in a specific part in the first one and got excited discussing the books with someone the other day. :P
