I wasn't sure where to post this. I thought about the adolescent forum, but adults are reading it too, I thought about writing/art/music form, but this book is even popular for non-readers so people may miss this thread who enjoyed the books because they don't normally check that forum. So mods, if you want move this, feel free to do so, I won't be offended.

I liked the second book the best, I liked the cliffhanger ending and it seemed like it was the fastest-paced book to me. I thought the first one was a bit slow at the start but it got better and was pretty exciting. The third was one was good, but I didn't like the ending much, if anyone wants to read why, here is my blog on it, I don't want to post it here because I don't want anyone who wants to read it to see the ending:

Mockingjay Ending: (Spoilers)

So, what did you like and not like about the books?

To be honest, I liked all of them equally. It is a continuous story, after all. :P

yeah i usually just think of a book series as the same book. Main exception I can think of is the inheritance cycle. The last book isn't near as good. I am glad I read it but it was a let down.

Yes, but still, even in single books, there are certain chapters I like better than others.

I usually don't even notice the seperation of chapters.

REALLY? 8O Is that how you are supposed to read books? I really disliked "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime" because there were no chapters. I pretty much read books according to chapters. I mean, I usually don't stop anywhere I place, I have to read the whole chapter first. I assumed everyone read books this way. Up until now. But as usual, I am probably the weird one.

haha there is no right way to read books. I usually am reading an ebook, so it saves my place (well it is supposed to, once in a while it doesn't). But I remember back in second grade that I would just stop randomly, I usually don't stop at the end of a chapter unless we were supposed to for school. What else would old fashioned book marks before? :P

OK, so everyone is different. It's interesting how we assume everyone does simple things like us. I guess I sort of knew someone might not pay attention to chapters, but I automatically assume that's how people would do it because that's the way I do it.

But do you see what I am saying? it is all the same story. Harry Potter is too, yeah he is different ages or in different grades, but I think of it as all the same.

I liked only the first book, the other two were just additions. But I enjoyed King's "The Running Man" and "The Long Walk" much more :) I didn't like it that in the books people had such weird names - it was, as if the whole thing was taking place in a different dimension, rather than in our world (even if set in a really very distant future). It amused me that at one point Katniss thought to herself that Glimmer had a weird name, lol, it's not like she herself was a Mary or a Sarah.

Yes, I am just saying I PERSONALLY, don't think of books that way.

I recently watched the movie and read the book every now and then - a minor obsession of mine :) But it's already gone.
