I never ended up reading the books (But I have heard great things about them), but I have just recently seen a trailer for the movie, and my interest has definitely been picqued. Honestly, I don't know how I missed a great series like this, but I'm definitely going to be picking up the books as soon as I can. Did anyone actually read these books? Thoughts on the trailer? Very reminiscent of Battle Royale...

For those of you who don't know what it's about watch this:

Looks far more intense than my colleagues have made the books out to be. I hesitate to buy the books, though, because the premise seems to me to be one that should probably have been contained to a single book. You'll have to tell me how they are.

Yeah, that's what I thought too. Must be some crazy plot twists, to be able to extend the story to a trilogy.

The first book I read had to do with Katniss, the main character, entering the Hunger Games. But because of

her last minute stunt at the end,
the higher ups want her dead. In secrecy. Second book deals with that, third on how it wraps up. Haven't read them.

"Hello ladies. Look at your villain, now back to me. Now back at your villain, now back to me. Sadly, he isn't me, but if he stopped toying with you and started messing with the flow of time, he could attempt to look like me. Look down, back up, where are you? You're in the palace of my dreams, witnessing the man your villain can't look like. What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it. It's the Light Force, flowing out of your beloved princess. Look again. THE PRINCESS IS NOW DEKU NUTS. Anything is possible when your villain tries to look like me and not a pig-beast. I'm on a Helmaroc."

A lot of the people (including me) at my school read them. I really liked them.
