"Best YA book of this generation"
5 stars"

Review by Kit-wah on 24th August, 2010

I picked up this book after reading great reviews about it but I was skeptical at first, since it didn't seem like my ‘thing’. One day after getting it, I had finished and I was blown away. “The Hunger Games” is action packed, emotionally driven and you won't be able to put it down. The protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, is a strong, smart and swift heroine but she also has a subtle vunerability that will make you root for her to win.

Listen to the reviews and give this book a try. You won't be disappointed and before you know it, you'll be reaching for “Catching Fire”.

This is by far one of the best books i've read recently. Once i started reading i found it so amazing that i couldn't put it down! The storyline is gripping and the characters captivating make the book as a whole exceptional.

5 stars"

Review by MJ on 18th January, 2011

As soon as you start reading The Hunger Games, it will have to hooked. Before you know it, you'll be reaching for the sequel, Catching Fire. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

Review by penny on 9th December, 2010

So far…it's a very gripping read! I'm only part way through, but so far I'm eagerly waiting for my night time reads to continue this story which is both intriguing and disturbing but still you cant put it down. This is a children's book, but I know many adults who are getting into it too! Would make a great movie!

"One of the best choices to buy!"

Review by Abby on 5th March, 2015

I am so glad I bought this book. I loved the first one and read it in a flash. The subsequent books were great. I'm so glad I bought this and at such a great price from Mighty Ape as it lead me to the next two books which I loved even more! :)

Review by michael on 1st September, 2012

Great book that will entertain your teen thoughout. Is quite graphic and offers somewhat complex ideas on government and poverty. So much more to this book then the movie.

"A Page Turner..."
5 stars"

Review by Ashleigh on 18th April, 2012

The movie may be awesome, but as the cliche stands true, the book is so much better. See the movie first to avoid disappointment.

Lovely to see a young, strong and courageous female protagonist, a role model of sorts for young girls. The book's plot really sucks you in, half way through this book and I have already bought the next book of the series. Really recommend picking this up!!!

"Great movie"

Review by monika on 18th April, 2012

"Great book!"
5 stars"

Review by Matt on 16th April, 2012

I decided to read this book after the hype from the movie. The first chapter just engages you right from the start and you want to keep reading.

Great story, well written and would recommend this!

"One of the best books I've ever read."
5 stars"

Review by Michael on 27th January, 2012

This book is really good. I read through the whole book in about 2 days, and I promptly ordered the 2nd and 3rd books after I was finished. If you like Harry Potter or things like that, I would suggest this book. I would actually suggest it to anyone really.

"Great, interesting book. Couldn't put it down. "

Review by Justine on 27th January, 2012

This is an amazing book. It left me wanting more. The story flows brilliantly and you don't want to stop reading once you start.

"Best book in ages"

Review by Esther on 18th December, 2011

My son studied this book at school this year and said that it is the first book he's read that he couldn't put down. He stayed up until 4am to finish it – this from a boy who doesn't enjoy reading very much! You can't get a better recommendation than that :-)
