Review: The Hunger Games Series

So The Hungry Games series, which the movie of the first book is out in theaters NOW!. What can I say? Normally I review book individually, but with this series I had the problem that I couldn't separated one book from another. And I just didn't wanted to sit down and write a review before finishing the whole series.

The truth is I'm not gonna give you guyz a true review about this series, I just want to tell you guyz you should DEFINITELY READ IT!

This is a really good story, is just pure shocking. The way Collins, came to think about a situation like this is something that is just unbelievable. To be honest I started reading this series because it was being compared to The Twilight Saga, something that I don't see why, because the only thing this series have in common is that they are Young Adult and that are being set for the big screen.Oh, and maybe the love triangle the main characters have, but believe me when I tell you that is the less thing Collins pay attention in this series. I will have to say the content of this series is cruel, cold, raw, and really revolutionary material.

I loved this series, finally a YA series that is not stupid. Don't get me wrong I like YA novels, but some are just plain stupid, everything is around the love/relationship part, and in this series we don't have that. We have love/relationship, but is not the main focus. And that really got me going. The main event of this series, I will have to say is just hardcore rebellion. But even thought I loved it, I still will have to give and overall of 4½ stars to this series. I just would have done some things different, but hey I think Collins did an awesome job, and maybe if she change those things it wouldn't be as awesome as it was.

Well not gonna say anything more, if I keep writing I would spoil the story for you guyz. JUST READ IT!!! I hope the series don't get crush in the movies like it happened with The Twilight Saga!

First Book

 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, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, 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 will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Second Book 

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before... and surprising readers at every turn.

Third Book 

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains - except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay - no matter what the personal cost.
