The world is not beautiful




Just a tip then. You say you're not one of those screaming people, but you do the internet equivalent. Typically all caps and multiple exclamations is the internet equivalent of screaming at the top of your lungs. If you don't want to be lumped in with that crowd you might want to rethink their use. I might not know you, but I'm free to make assumptions from the way you type/behave, as most people online will, and that's how you're coming off even if you don't mean to.


Therefore it is.

i say try them out if you really want


i mean, i wasn't a fan. the books are decent, but definitely nothing special or ground breaking. the characters seemed meh and it was pretty boring most of the time. then again i never finished the series

it wasn't all that violent if that's what you're worried about
I loved The Hunger Games. Seriously. I read the first one on my Kindle just because it was .99 and I had heard awesome things about it, and after finishing, proceeded to download the other two and consume the entire trilogy in a weekend.

It definitely doesn't have the violence of Battle Royale, but it's enough to keep you entertained through the end. The main character is meh, in my opinion, but it does have a delightful cast of secondary characters who, unlike many other novels, actually become fleshed out and make you attached to them. I think that was one of the major things I liked about it.

Besides, it might be worth reading just as a comparative read. Like, what are the underlying motives for having children fight to the death? Are these motives effective? What are some common traits shared between Shuya and Katniss? How are they different? How do they compare to other dystopian protagonists you may know who are not in the same life-or-death situation, and how might this affect how they react? When I pick up a book that I know is very similar to one that I've read before, I frequently like to think about how it compares to my previous read.
Read the books
there are easy to read but there so good,I was soo into them I read the first 2 in 5 days all together! there are charaters you will get attached to and love!

read them trust me! heart heart
It's alright and it definitely gets you hooked. Not my favorite though. The main character isn't such a catch, but it's not her that gets you hooked, it's the secondary characters that you get more attached to. The third book isn't as great...
I would recommend it giving it an 8/10 rating.

As a reader and lover of both Battle Royale and The Hunger Games, I had to take a few minutes to figure out how to phrase this.

If your problem rested with young people dying and being forced to kill each other, then don't read Hunger Games. However, Hunger Games is far less violent than BR, at least in my opinion. Hunger Games is more about survival and the hope and prices people will be willing to pay to survive, all with rebellion bubbling underneath. I daresay it has a deeper story than BR as well.

Worse comes to worse, just read the first few chapters and see what you think.


I've heard so much raving about "The Hunger Games" I read the sample chapter. Honestly, I don't know how this book became a bestseller, the quality of writing is, at best, mediocre. I can only assume the story is what "hooks" people.

However, I am not in the least bit interested in reading about a society that forces children to participate in gladiatorial events to entertain the masses. I support the right of any author to explore any subject matter in his/her work, but this just isn't something I'd like to read.
