I have to say I loved loved loved this series. Probably my favorite of all the ones I've read including Twilight *gasp* and the Millenium series. I loved Twilight but honestly Bella annoyed the shit out of me through most of it and while I loved Lisbeth Salander's character in the Millenium series there was so much other stuff about those books that I didn't like. With this series I loved pretty much everything about it. From the moment I started the first book I couldn't put them down and continued to think about each book long after I finished reading.
Of the three I will say that Mockingjay was my least favorite, reading about the war itself was less interesting to me than reading about the Games in the first and second book. With that said I was still engrossed and couldn't wait to see how the series would end and who would survive.
I read a lot of negative reviews about the final book on Amazon and how the series ended and while I agree with a few of the complaints overall I was happy with the ending and felt it was a lot more realistic than most young adult novels these days. I was pleased with how things were left with Katniss and how the love triangle was resolved. The only thing that I'm really disappointed about is the fact that there aren't anymore of these to read. Now I guess I will just have to look forward to the movies and see how the books get interepreted onto the big screen.
I definitely would recommend these books to anyone. Yes there is a lot of violence and yes it does talk about children being killed and war but it's very fast paced, action packed and engrossing. Oh yeah and there's a love triangle in there and who doesn't love a love triangle?
Have you read this series? Did you like/dislike?
