An FANTASTIC 3 part book series that includes violence, romance, brutality, cruelty, strategy, and awesomeness. There is a film adaptation coming to theaters in 2012 starring the always great Jennifer Lawrence. This series/franchise is better than Twilight in every way, shape and form, so don't even try to argue with that. It's like arguing that M. Night Shyamalan makes better movies than Christopher Nolan. You just won't win.
Twilight fan: TWi1IGHT mAkE MoVIe FIST!!1! ThE HUNgry GaMES is JUzzT coPYerzzz!!111

The Hunger Games fan: Goddammit. Another one of THESE lil' ol' dumbasses. I should just help her.

*explains what The Hunger Games is all about*

(Former) Twilight fan: Thank you sir, for that riveting plot summary. I am no longer a fan of Twilight, and I now realize why so many people say it sucks so much. I can't wait to read the entire Hunger Games series. Thank you God, for bringing me out of that dark, dark place that I was in. Thank you.

The BEST BOOK SERIES EVER. I couldn't stop reading once i picked it up! I brought the books with me everywhere! If you haven't yet read the hunger game books, GO READ THEM RIGHT NOW. I promise, you will not regret it! I'm not even a big fan of reading, but wow, these books hooked me!

The first movie that out is also great. I loved it too, but as always, the book always has all those extra details! I can't wait till the second and third movies come out!
I'm going to go read The Hunger Games. So now, I'm officially cool.

An emotionally changing movie and book. If you've seen/read any of The Hunger Games you'll at least understand where I'm coming from, if you haven't seen The Hunger Games or read it get down to the nearest book shop or library makes sure you read it before you watch it. If you want to see The Hunger Games you can buy it of the internet or watch it on Netflix.
"Bro have you read Suzanne Collins book The Hunger Games, it's awesome bro you have to read it."

OMG SO YOU HAV 2 KNO ABT THIS. the hunger games is like a book serie dat is abt a grl hu haz 2 kill da ppl in da "hunger games" its like a draft from da EVIL GOVERMENT and she is 1 of dem. so den she kills a bunch of ppl and meats a kute boi <3 namd pita and dey luvs eachothr but deys gotta kill echothr. so u hav 2 reed da 3rd bk 2 find, but nvm.

That's how a teenage girl would describe this shit series. Basically, the hunger games is the newest fad shit book for fucktarded kids with no taste. It takes the trite "fight to the death" tournament trope and throws in a sappy romance to wet the privates of teenage girls. Avoid. But you already knew that, didn't you?

A book series written by Suzanne Collins. It completely rips off of "Battle Royale", a book by Japanese author Koushun Takami that was written over a decade before The Hunger Games. There were also two film adaptations of Battle Royale and a spin-off manga. Both books involve teenagers being forced to kill each other by the government.

The Hunger Games is very poorly written. Its biggest mistake is that it is written in 1st person, so one knows exactly how it ends the second one starts to read it. Suzanne Collins avoids showing the violence that takes place in her novel, usually implying deaths rather than showing them. This is because her target audience is teenage girls.

The protagonist, Katniss, is very unintelligent and has the same problem as all other female protagonists in modern teen fiction- she is in love with two guys and the main focus of the book is which one she chooses. This is the most important thing in the book- it doesn't matter that people are trying to kill Katniss, or that she lives in a world ruled by an oppressive government, or that her family is poor or that a rebellion is being started- the only thing important to her is choosing between these two guys. Everything else takes the back seat.

Essentially, The Hunger Games fails in every area that Battle Royal succeeds.
Teenage girl: OMG have u read The Hunger Games???/?? itz the best book EVR <33333

Me: Yes, and I found it to be very poorly written. It was a blatant rip-off of Battle Royale and the main character was quite stupid, as she was more concerned with finding a boyfriend than she was with saving her own life.

Teenage girl: no ur wrong itz amazinggggg!!1!!11! #Team Peeta <3

*goes back to listening to Ke$ha and worshiping Paris Hilton*

Me: This world is hopeless.
