    my entering just improves the odds for anyone else who enters. ;)

    i honestly don’t know which one was my favorite. it almost reads more the way LoTR does – as if it’s one long book that was cut up into 1/3s, rather than 3 separate books about the same characters. the 3rd book had the most light-hearted moments, which i liked, but you can’t really like that one more that the first 2, because it doesn’t stand on its own.

      That’s a hard choice for me, especially between The Hunger Games, and Catching Fire. But in the end I would say Catching Fire because it goes more in depth into the character’s minds and emotions. It’s like not seeing your best friends for a while , yet things go on right where they left off except they have grown a little bit.

    Book one — The Hunger Games — was my favorite. Intense, high energy, quick read with a strong female protagonist. The next two were also strong, but there’s a je nes se qua still for me with regard to the first.

    The first one was my favorite. I gasped when Katniss volunteered for Prim because I didn’t read the book summary right. Among other things that may have to do with the boy with the bread.

    Book Two was my favorite, despite it not really being a stand-alone book, since it really brought me deeper into Katniss’s world and the difficulties she encountered – both as a Tribute and as her relationships with Peeta and Gale became more important.

    I can’t wait to read the critical essays about the Hunger Games and see how other people view its themes. :)

    I agree with most everyone else: The Hunger Games was my favourite. Because it was the first I think it has the most power, introducing us to this incredible terrible scenario and a world that feels complete… so well built. I also love the introductions to all these characters.

    My favorite of the 3 was the hunger games, because we entered the arena and all the adventures with Katniss, it was out first journey together.
    This twisted and dark story of kids killing each other was something new and exicting.
    You begun to love Rue but you knew from the beginning that she won’t survive, this thought alone made it really horrible but still you had to read and read and suffer with Katniss and Peeta.
    I can’t really put all my thoughts and feelings about it in a comment.

    It has that more primal Lord of the Flies, Battle Royale, The Long Walk/Running Man vibe to it. It is imbued with that attendant survival at all costs tension.

    The first one is my favorite, simply because of the brilliance in the final berry scene when Katniss and Peeta realize they’ll be forced to choose one to survive. Never expected that, and it worked so well for the characters and the scenario. The other books were good, too, but nothing ever quite matched that scene for me.

    Out of all three books, my favorite would also have to be The Hunger Games. There’s a certain intensity to it as well as a certain sadness. The interaction between Katniss and poor, ill-fated Rue really sort of set the stage for not only Katniss become less of a hard character (which, I think, helped her become more accepting of Peeta’s help later on in the novel) but for the whole rebellion itself.

    I love love the Hunger Games but Mockingjay is my absolute favorite. All the characters are seen in a different light based on the circumstances there are. Mokingjay is heartbreaking and shows the way of how everything could go wrong. And still Peeta and Katniss survived, they will be forever be scarred, but they are alive and wasn’t that the only thing they aspire to from the beginning?

    My favorite is “The Hunger Games” because it was so gripping. The other two I could have put down at some point (although I hated to) but I literally read “The Hunger Games” right through without stopping. Plus, the first one of a series is always memorable because it is what first brings you into that world.

    My favorite was actually Catching Fire- the strength these people find even in resignation is amazing, and all of the small defiances that add up to a grand action are just staggering. I like that even in the repetitive nature of going to the games again, there’s so much that’s different, that the stakes- already unbearly high- can get even more dear.

    Catching Fire: While The Hunger Games book 1 shocks with you with adrenaline pumping fear and inconceivable circumstances that Katniss has to endure, Catching Fire adds complexity and nuance to those once terrifying situations by giving Katniss new choices, coping strategies and allies. If the first book is a window looking out on a landscape, then Catching Fire is the entire terrain that window looks out on. (and Mockingjay is the crumbling ground beneath that landscape).

    Mm. Tough call. I came late to the game (no pun intended) – and just read all three for the first time (pretty much back-to-back because they were so amazing) in december. But if i had to choose, i think Hunger Games, because that’s where it all started… *goes off to reread it…again*

    Catching Fire was by far my favorite. I read both the first and second books about a month or two before Mockingjay came out. I was hooked, and I had to reread the first two books just to pass the time until Mockingjay came out. I got it the day it came out and had it finished in a day and a half.

    Catching Fire lives up to its name: you catch the fire. You can’t catch your breath, and it pounds forward until the HUGE PLOT TWIST near the end of the book that blows EVERYTHING OUT OF THE WATER! I suspected something like this all along, but when it happened, it took me by surprise and I never recovered. This was the BEST BOOK I’ve read in a LONG time.

    I am an English Teacher and I am writing lesson plans to teach The Hunger Games for my students as well as SPEAK, by Laurie Halse Anderson. I cannot rave about these books enough, and I haven’t stopped coming up with alternate ideas to teach and incorporate these books in the curriculum of any high school or middle school.

    The Hunger Games is my favorite book of the Triology because it sparked my love for the entire series! I especially hold the first book closest to heart because it is the one that really got me thinking and kept me wondering for days. I grew to love the characters and the it basically hooked me to the whole idea of dystopian novels!

    The Hunger Games initially is my favorite because it pulls you in to Katniss’s world and it’s just so exciting to introduce new readers to the series and see how hooked they become. However,overall, I have to say Mockingjay is probably actually my favorite because I really appreciate that Suzanne Collins did not end the series with a “happily ever after” ending. I felt very strongly that a true book about the horrors of war needed to end with the message that while the war may be over, it stays with you forever. She exposed the atrocities that humans are capable of incredibly. When I hear people say that the ending just didn’t sit well with them, I think, “Exactly!” because it shouldn’t. We should never feel OK about war. There are always innocent lives lost when we destroy our enemies. And Ms. Collins never lets us forget that with Katniss’s story.

    Just tell us: What book of the trilogy was your favorite?

    My favorite of the trilogy is The Hunger Games! In the first book, everything was simple, not so complicated and so straight-forward. Peeta’s love for Katniss drove everyone crazy! It was such a sweet love, and the way that he cared for Katniss during the Games was so sweet also! He treated her with so much love and tenderness. It was very from the heart. The ending turned everything into a complicated mess for Katniss because unbeknownst to her, she started a revolution and ripped Peeta’s heart from his chest. The first book is full of surprises that no one could even tell was going to happen. I also loved getting to know Katniss, I would love to be as tough, fierce and skilled as her. She’s an awesome chick, even if she doesn’t think so.

    If I had to chose, it would have to be the first book. After you read the first chapter you fall in love with Katniss and her loyalty to her family, her willingness to volunteer to basically lose her own life for her little sister so Prim could live. Not many people would do that, not to mention a 16 year old girl. Being introduced into this world through the life of a young girl and seeing how strong and capable she is really hits home on how harsh and unforgiving the society is and it draws you in heart and soul.

    The Hunger Games has been my favorite. It’s one of those books that you simply cannot put down. One of the few books that I have read that has the ability to stir such emotion. A story that will remain with me for a long time. I am a student teacher and I am actually now teaching The Hunger Games to my current 8th grade Social Studies class. I literally had to jump through “fire” to get it approved by the school administration and media specialists, but I did and the student’s are already as hooked as I was. It is providing so many opportunities for creative and a higher level of thinking. It’s a book that I will forever teach in my classes, and hopefully will encourage, and help me continue to promote, and teach adolescent literacy. Thank you Smart Pop and Suzanne Collins.

    It’s almost impossible to choose, but at the moment I’d go with Catching Fire. It comes to mind because it’s where we first meet Finnick, who is my favorite character of the series. Simply put, he is a perfect example of why a person cannot be judged based on what we see on the surface.

    I loved the first book, Hunger Games. After reading lots of reviews (I’m a children’s librarian) that praised the book I had to read it for myself, especially since I’m not a fan of fantasy/sci fi. Well, didn’t take long to get hooked. Stayed up nights to finish and raved about the book to every kid I saw, including my own daughters. Love, love, love all 3, but the 1st got me hooked, so that’s my favorite.

    I know this sounds cheesy and probably fake, but my birthday is on April 5th, so when I heard that it was coming out on my birthday I totally freaked. I don’t know how to prove this, but if anyone has a sugestion just comment below me! :D
    Anyways my favorite book had to be Mockingjay. It was so riveting and I got so into it. Of course I loved the other books so much, but I loved the Mockingjay because it captured me. It was so filled with emotion they became tangible. I WAS Katniss. Everything she felt I felt with her. The feelings were really powerful. The romance, the sorrow, and the excitement. It was all there. It was simply amazing. Usually people say enough said, but with this series there will NEVER be enough said.

    The first book in the series, The Hunger Games, was my favourite. At that time I didn’t know that it was a trilogy, not after I had finished reading it. Because of my oblivion, the experience reading the book was a whole lot better. I didn’t know how it would end, if Katniss would die or live to the end. It could go any way and I wouldn’t be stuck thinking “meh, she’s going to live another day, she does make it to the second book.” It was more like “OMG, she might die!”

    Hmm, that’s a tough one. Hunger Games, I think :) It was just so good, not much I don’t like about it :) Catching Fire had a few flaws in my eyes; like Gale. And Mockingjay did something I didn’t like at all. It made Katniss be mean to Peeta. So yeah, Hunger Games is my favorite :)

    No doubt book two, Catching Fire, was my favorite. It had the most turnabouts, which are some of my favorite literary devices, and was the most exciting without also being totally depressing. The third one was exciting, but also very dark and depressing, and the first was just…the first. It had to get things moving. That was it’s job, and Catching Fire got to go full out.

    Ahhh such a hard decisionnnnn. I loved them all, and read them in less than a week so it all kind of blurs into one big book. Either Hunger Games or Catching Fire. I loved the first one for introducing the world and the characters and everything being new, but I loved the second one for the characters and the depth the plot really took.

    My fav book was the original hunger games :) I usually love the original in a series anyway. I love the intensity of Katniss and Peeta’s attraction, and I love how Suzanne Collins leaves some room for reading between the lines. I also love how she planted and cultivated the revolution from the very beginning of the series.

    I’d say that The Hunger Games was my favorite. The characterization of a new dystopian world and the realistic characters, along with the intense action drew me into the series.

    This is an extremely difficult question to answer, like choosing which of your children you love the most. But I would have to choose Mockingjay as my favorite of the three. It is such an emotionally challenging book; after I finished it I felt like I was in a daze. It completely changed my outlook on the world around me. I found myself responding to things in ways that Katniss would. In fact, it seemed as though I WAS Katniss, if only for a small amount of time. These books undoubtedly changed my life as a whole series together, but I would say that Mockingjay made the biggest impact, and for that reason it is my favorite. Also, she finally picked Peeta, which made me indescribably happy! I’ve never seen a book character as amazing as Peeta before, and he forever has a place in my heart, just as all the other characters do, from Cinna to Thresh. I also loved Finnick, and although I wept when he died, I cred tears of joy when Annie had her baby. And although there were too many casualties in this book to count, there saws a soft, semihappy ending that left me in peaceful thought. I read this book 7 months ago, and not a day goes by when I’m not reminded of this fantastic and moving story, and I have to stop and ponder its message once again. Things like these reasons and millions more are why these are my favorite books, and Mockingjay is my favorite of them. It has earned a special place on my bookshelf, and I am confident that it wont be replaced anytime remotely soon.

    I love Book 1: The Hunger Games because it’s the beginning, it’s a stand alone novel, it’s the book that imerses you in the story and makes you want more. It was beautifully written and is really a book (a series) that will live on as a fic rec for generations. I love that as you read, you feel “is this the end? what more could happen?” and then BAM! two more books full of surprises! Honestly, if there was only book 1, I would have still been happy and would have re-read it again and again. Thankfully, I have 3 though. LoL

    The Hunger Games trilogy is one of the greatest series I’ve read in along time! So glad that it’s getting the recognition it deserves! :D

    The first book in the series is my absolute favorite! When I finished it, I swore I would never read the first book in the series if the second wasn’t out. Collins does a perfect job of creating an imaginary world where the reader feels as if they are experiencing every pain and struggle of the characters. The ending will leave you desperate to read the next.

    Ohh this is so hard. I loved all 3. I guess I would have to choose Catching Fire since I never put it down once I started reading it.

    Well, I’ve only just read the first book and am addicted, so I’d have to say The Hunger Games. (Though I’m sure to have read the rest of the trilogy by the time The Girl Who Was On Fire is released!)

    The Hunger Games was my favorite book out of the series – I like how it set things up and introduced you to the world of Panem.

    For me, my favorite book is The Hunger Games, it was the first and therefore the most memorable as I started this wonderful trilogy. I wasn’t expecting such an emotional reaction as I read it so it stands out the most for me.
