Everyone needs to read this book, but not everyone should. The storyline and the writing is amazing, a total masterpiece! Except that it is also a total psychological trip into the extent human beings will go for power. Also, it is just a piece of paper around the books, but that didn't bother me as much as others apparently. If you don't get too freaked out by weird stuff, buy these books and read them! If you do, maybe just buy the first and go from there =) All in all, a perfect read with plenty of thoughts to be had after.
This trilogy is amazing! Although I am not a regular 'reader' - I have been unable to put the books down since they arrived. Captivated my imagination from the word go.
One note regarding the item however - the item description mentions 'box set' (and the image implies this also) however the set I received did not come in an actual 'box'. There was a paper covering (a sheet of paper with the hunger games logo) wrapped around the books within the polythene packing... Not quite a 'box set' - a little misleading?
