The Hunger Games books are not that long and really move at a nice clip. I think this contributes to their popularity among the masses.

40% down :)

I jsut really hope this Games end in the first book. I'm too curious to know how it ends. Sad, too. It's really captivating.

You won't be disappointed Shelle but they are VERY sad books.

Gate, I expected them to be sad. that's why I wasn't sure whehter to read them now as I'm not in the mood for this kind of drama, but you all forced me to :)

BTW The Games are on now and I can tell the worst is about to come.

My daughter is on the 3rd book and she loves them as much as I did. I don't think she understands all of the implications the books make but we've been able to have some good conversation about them.

All three :)

I liked it, though the ending seemed bit rushed to me. There were some really major events and not enough time to process them, for me.

it was quite frustrating durign the whole saga that whenever I was like 'OK, they'll be fine for now' a big twist came. They could never catch breath, could they?

Now, I'm even more excited to see the film. I hope they'll do all three of them.

This is not something to worry about... (the first is going to be huge, I am sure).
