Not long finished the Hunger Games..

and do you think its worth reading book2 and 3?
Book 1 was pretty good, plot very very easy to predict the ending although an interesting exploration of reality tv lol.
But I only want to carry on reading if its going to be a bit juicy and interesting, rather than a 'i dont love him, oh wait I do really' plot, whilst hiding it from the rest of the world.

Personally, I enjoyed the first one and the second one was quite good, but the third one had it all wearing a bit thin.

Thanks Lou -
I'll keep my eye open to see if they become super cheap on amazon before downloading the next couple of books.

I found that the second book was much the same as the first one. I haven;t read the third as it got some pretty bad reviews, but I would only read the second if you really enjoyed the first one.

I tried to read the second a while ago and couldn't get into it, but I picked it up last week and couldn't put it down, amazing. Much better than the first, although I enjoyed the first I found it was pretty slow-paced.

RE: Not long finished the Hunger Games..

The second book is, I think, much more politically motivated than the first, although it does seem a bit like a rerun on the surface. Really though, books 2 and 3 are one long book split in the middle, and I think ought to be read like that - a lot of the payoff (some of it not pleasant) comes in book 3.

And of course, the film of book 2 opens today. The critics already are saying it's vastly superior to the first movie.
