I read it. It's a good book, but it's undeserving of the hype. Then again, I never think books are "amazing".

I have, and it is the best book I have ever read. Their coming out with a movie, but movies never seem to be as good as the book...

I really like those books, I have only read one though and I haven't finished it so with that in mind I can't say my favourite part of the book yet. :lol:

I had a hard time getting into it. It had a good plot, and the characters were interesting, but I never truely enjoyed it. Same for the Stieg Larson books.

It was interesting. I think the Ms Collins was trying to draw a parallel between the districts and the third world, at least in the first book.

i really enjoyed the book. most young adult books with female leads tend to deal with the typical issues you always see. but really, katniss is a person. a human being who happens to have a vagina...and hair legs (yuck).

im afraid the movie will turn out to be the next twilight though -.-

I've read it, and I really like the idea of it all, but I think it was poorly executed.
