Is Hunger Games absolutely the best book ever? I want reviews! I want to know if its worthy to read!
Check The Hunger Games for 1143 reviews. Hopefully that will be enough to help you decide. ;-)
Does anyone have an opinion about reading it if I have read Battle Royale?
It's similar to Battle Royale but different enough that they are both worth a read I think. Hunger Games is less bloody, and more character-driven with a more elaborate back-story to the political scenario than Battle Royale, which is more driven by the immediate plot-line. Also it may have been the translation I read, but Battle Royale seemed poorly written in comparison.
However, if you've read Battle Royale first you will likely feel the Hunger Games is a ripoff of it to some extent. Apparently the author had never heard of Battle Royale before she wrote it thought, and then consciously didn't read or see it while she was still writing the series so it didn't influence her at all.
According to my daughter, who studies Japanese and spent 4 months there last fall, it is a very poor translation.
Ok. Thanks again for all the feedback! :) I'm reading Twilight right now but I want to try it soon!
The Hunger Games Trilogy
Do you think it is worth while to spend your time on this
It is a SAGA! And yes!!!! I absolutely LOOVVVEEDD, the first book! But the movie stunk :/...
Oh. I'm sure! Haven't read the books but only ever heard good things :)
the hunger games are barely any better written than that twilight rubbish
awful, i hope i can write better than them, i think they've lowered the bar considerably
makes it easier for me
That happens here sometimes. It is a reasonable alternative to letting people know how you feel in a rational, well-written statement.
amazing book, but not the best, great build up but some of the scenes are a little boring! x
