I fear the debating abilities for the thread are gonna start lacking, all over again. crying


Debating? My friend as I have mentioned to you in the past this thread is nothing more then a popularity contest. It is sad because some YA Novels deserve to be given proper credence to such as Harry Potter. I have not read the Hunger Games, but the basic premise well having historical and literary significance is unique in the fact it places teens in a role historically reserved for adult males.


Exactly why didn't the creator of the thread bother to keep in mind that we deserve a thread made for actual debating, I really don't know.
All I know is that Mockingjay has depression levels to rival the Aeneid, itself. emo


I agree, the author really captured the essence of war with this novel, while still attempting to stick the the "happy ending" that readers come to expect from series like these. No matter what happens there will be resounding psychological effects on participants in any war, and while the final book was depressing, things still worked out, it just wasn't a fairytale "happily ever after" like most people expect. Great story, Great imagery. Harry Potter was an excellent read as well, but you don't get the FEELING out of it like you do with the Hunger Games Trilogy.

Why do I suspect that the books forum for gaia online is starting to get massively worse, no matter how hard we would try? emo
We needed a thread to have proper debates with, not threads that are simply popularity contests!

Are you serious?
I doubt you read Harry Potter then, you probably just watched the movies. If you're saying Harry Potter didn't have that "feeling" like The Hunger Games did, that's so not true.
What makes you think that anyway?
This is a very sensitive and controversial topic...So hard to choose.

I'm pretty sure Harry Potter will always be my favorite. I can't imagine anything topping it. Anything better and my brain would just explode. Seriously.

I do really love The Hunger Games, but... Harry Potter, damnit. Harry freaking Potter. I'm STILL trying to get over the fact that it's finished, and the last movie came out almost a year ago!

I read Twilight for the sole reason that I could argue with Twitards about it's ridiculousness. I did NOT enjoy it, and I could have spent my time so much better. Do I regret reading it? No, because now I understand even better how stupid Twilight fans are.

Definitely Harry Potter.....or is it Twilight?
I love both movies because there more books than Hunger Games. Plus, I don't understand the Hunger Games much. And I definitely agree with people who chose Lord of the Rings.

Twilight would have to be the worst out of all three. I like both The Hunger Games and Harry Potter but preferably Harry Potter ove The Hunger Games.........at the moment. It all really depends on the next two movies for The Hunger Games. Since only one has been released it's hard to tell which is better whee but everyone should wait because I bet - even though The Hunger Games is short, it might be better 3nodding

Does anyone agree?
