The Hunger Games

Imagine that each state had to give up one boy and one girl each year to fight in the ultimate reality show where only one comes out alive.  Oh and everyone else if forced to watch it on TV.  Welcome to The Hunger Games.

This is an incredible book that I can't imagine anyone not liking!  I bought it for my husband when we went to Mexico to make sure he would stay entertained since he doesn't sit still well and all he wanted to do each day was get under the palapa so he could keep reading it.  Perfect!!!  Once he was done he kept telling me to read it.  I read another book first but once I started The Hunger Games, I did not want to put it down.  It pulls you in right away and keeps it up all the way through.  I won't tell you too much, but trust me that you WILL like this book. 

The Hunger Games is the first book in a trilogy.  The second book, Catching Fire, was a good book, but not as good as The Hunger Games.  The final book, Mockingjay, comes out next week and I've already pre-ordered it on Amazon.

Based on your reccomendation, I bought this book. It's been on the shelf a while, but I finally started and finished it this weekend! What a fun read! I'll end up reading the other two, though the reviews aren't as wonderful. Thanks for the suggestion.

The second book starts slow, then gets really good about half way through.

I didn't enjoy the third book at all, but wanted to know how it ended.

Glad you enjoyed!
