I mentioned in a previous post that I finally got around to read the Hunger Games – the first of the trilogy. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had some time to read and finished the trilogy. I thought Collins put together a good series of books that kept me curious as to what might happen next.
Since several people I know read them, I had heard that the first one was the best, the second was pretty good and the third wasn’t as good. While the third was different from the first two, it built well on the story line presented in the first two and had a few twists and turns I wasn’t expecting.
As I mentioned in my post of the first book, the premise of the book is somewhat disturbing when you realize that kids are playing a game that requires them to kill each other. As you read the books and understand the backdrop, it makes sense and paints a picture of a very sinister government trying to control its people through fear and domination.
It was a good series, very well-written and now I can say I’ve read The Hunger Games.
