The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: An Introduction


The last few books I read last year were those that comprise The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins; The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay.  

These came at a perfect time for me. I had just about given up on the idea that I was going to be able to read anything new until the baby was born. Then I tried The Hunger Games and I was absolutely hooked from the very first moment.

What inspired me to read them was the fact that movie will soon be released here in Australia and the shorts looked really exciting. Like many avid readers, I do like to read the book before I see the movie where ever possible. Turns out, it was a brilliant decision.

This series has everything in it that I love, which I will elaborate on further in my reviews.

What I plan to do is review each book in turn and then have a post at the end where I sum up some of my broader thoughts about the trilogy as a whole.

What I did want to say though is this – don't be a book snob. Don't be one of those people who don't read a book simply because of the hype. Sometimes there is hype for a good reason, and that is the case with The Hunger Games trilogy. I have recommended this book to 3 of my close friends, 1 of whom has completely the opposite taste to me, and all 3 have said that these are some of the most exciting and enjoyable books they have read.

I know everyone has individual taste, but I really can't emphasise enough that these are books where I recommend you put aside any prejudices you might have, be brave, and give them a go.

The vast majority of you won't regret it.
