This trilogy I highly reccommend. It was gripping and I couldnt put the books down. Just as good as the movies. Love them. A lot of action, Drama, a love triangle and it tears at your heart strings. I would read these again in a heart beat. A quick read, perfectly written. ( )

The Hunger Games Trilogy was #32 on the Labyrinth Top 100 list in 2012. Katniss Everdeen lives in a post WWIII world that is violent and ruled by a ruthless dictator. She volunteers to participate in the "Hunger Games" to save her sister but in the process becomes the symbol for a rebellion for freedom. She is not free however to follow her heart. This is a great book for students because there is a love story, action pact plot line, and endless possibilities for classroom discussions and activities.

I'm sure some of my SF comrades will dismiss these novels as "escapist young adult fiction." Fair enough. Maybe I'm just immature (my wife will vouch for that in a heartbeat ;-). But I'd list two recent "young adult" fiction series among my all-time favorites, and The Hunger Games ranks beside Harry Potter in that category for me. Both are simply tremendous examples of the storyteller's art. Both feature protagonists, antagonists, and supporting casts of characters who grab the reader's imagination and refuse to let go. And I'll make a confession: The Hunger Games is the first trilogy I can remember that hooked me so profoundly that I re-read it, start to finish, as soon as I digested the last line of the last book.

There are 12 districts from where people are from. One boy and one girl are chosen at random every year as a reminder not to rebel against the government.

"In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before - and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love"--Cover.… (more)
