The Hunger Games

Just finished Suzanne Collins’ brilliant “Hunger Games” trilogy. What a gripping story. It’s a great example of an adventure that is all about character where the protagonist must battle earth-shattering global conflict while trying to balance deeply personal dilemmas. If you haven’t read them yet, give the first one a try. You won’t regret it. Well done Suzanne!

    Brilliant trilogy indeed.

  2. Kay says:

    oh yeah! all oof my friends are RAVING about that! cant wait to read it

  3. Christine says:

    Those books are FANTASTIC! I really developed an emotional attachment to each of the characters…something that is hard to find in a lot of books. A must read!

  4. Eva Graalman says:

    It’s on my “to read” list. Just haven’t gotten around to it.

  5. Bookmeister says:

    Such a brilliant idea and written so well! I started it when it first came out and loved it ’til the end. Now they’re making a movie version and I’m half dreading, half excited for the result. Not all authors can be screenwriters too!

    Yah I own all three

    ok, i have not read it yet, and until i got my laptop (two years ago) i haven’t even heard of the series. Now that i know the author (thank you, DJ) i’m going to see if we have it at my school.

    Ok, lately, i’ve been doing something that i normally wouldn’t do… reread a series that the first book turned into a movie.That is very unlike me, if you knew me. I’m now ubsessed with the book, and for Character day at school (second spirit week this school year), i might even dress up like one of the character. I loved the subject before i even knew about the series. In case your wondering, it’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians… and i don’t know why, but it’s impossible to stop reading it!

    I would probably say the same thing about your books, DJ, but it isn’t a movie… and i just want it to become a movie!

    I’m going to stop talking now… or as i say “stop-stop-talky”

    Even though I do want to read the Hunger Games series, I have been too busy reading other great books like Maximum Ride and Daniel X. Both are great series, and I would reccomend to anyone who likes a good action/ adventure series. Of course, Pendragon is great too!

  9. connor says:

    Same here denduron still reading books by james patterson.not as good a D.J. Machale but still good.

  10. Bobby Pendragon says:

    I didn’t get to read it yet but I definitely will read it!

  11. Marina says:

    OMG! I read the Hunger Games… love them! 😀 I also just finished Angel (the most recent book in Maximum Ride) and I am obsessed! It is one of my favorite series (next to Pendragon, of course). Can’t wait for the next one to come out.

  12. denduron!!! says:

    I read that the next Maximum Ride book will be the final one… so disappointing. I wish that series would never end!

  13. connor says:

    I so wish it could continue

  14. denduron!!! says:

    Yeah. That series is so good!

  15. Bobby Pendragon says:

    I didn’t get to reading it yet but I will! My teacher said that the books are amazing and he recomends them!!!

  16. ~ says:

    I finished these books at about the same time as you. Weird O.o

  17. Lead Traveler says:

    btw. suzanne collins has another series called “Gregor the Overlander”. that’s the first book. and there is five. they’re really good. i recomend them a thousand times over! try ’em!

    Do you like basketball? Do you like online games? Do you like to create your own basketball players and guide them through their careers from high school to college? Or are you a head coach type of guy? Do you want to coach the top college basketball programs in america like Duke? Kansas? North Carolina? Well this game has them all! You can even coach fictitious professional teams or high schools! Interested already? Then read below! I will give you a little more insight on the game!

    It”s an old MMORPG starting over. It’s 100x better than Cyber dunk. You can create coaches or players. As a player, you start off in high school then move through hs to college then the pros. You can coach HS, college, or the pros. You can put in game plans for your team to decide how they play in a game. You can also have team practices to see how good your roster is. There will eventually be drafts for players and such. It is not super active right now due to the amount of players, but the user base is growing rapidly. The first season is about to start in a few days, so if you want to join, then join quick! For games, there will eventually be a live play by play (they have it right now, but it isn’t perfected) and possibly animations so you can actually watch a game! You can watch your own created players face off against other people’s players from around the world! Or you can watch your teams and guide them to a championship! In high school there will be a tournament with all the state champions to determine an overall high school champion, and in college, there will be a tournament like march madness. In the pros, there will just be normal playoffs.

    I gotta say that I did like that series, but the entire time I was reading them in the back of my mind I kept thinking, “This kinda reminds me of The Quillan Games from Pendragon” Is it just me or did anyone else feel the same way…

  20. Quillan says:

    well a mixture of The Quillan Games and Denduron…

  21. Zadaa Ghee says:

    Yeah, it reminded me about The Quillan Games, too. I thought it was a decent story, but I noticed a couple things (SPOILER ALERT!!) like them both getting 12s which made them a target weren’t ever followed through with.

  22. Lily Snow says:

    I still have to read. i wonder what happens???

  23. Claire says:

    i LOVED the first two books. the plot was fast and intersting. the third book was not as great. it made me upset when i read it.

  24. katie says:

    Those books are spectacular! gripping, a little romantic, but ten times more action packed! I either got the chills, boiling blood, or an adrenaline rush just by reading them! some of the best books I have ever read! Besides the brilliant and amazing territories of Halla, of course.

  25. katie says:

    I’ve read daniel X, maximum ride, Percy Jackson, Eragon, Warriors, Artemis Fowl,Witch and Wizard, Kane, Charlie Bone, Incarceron, and the Hunger Games.(and Pendragon!) Pendragon, Eragon, and Hunger Games were the three best!

  26. Flume of Doom says:

    Anyone read the “Gone” series? They are intense, graphic, and … BRUTAL!

  27. DADOSLAYER says:

    they r ok I guess. i dont see what the big deal about them is. I mean they not BAD buttheir not what people say. Im just tired about hearing people going on and on about the frigging things!!!

  28. IWannaMarryMarsh888 says:

    The trilogy pales in comparison to Morpheus Road.
