I thought it was okay. Rather entertaining to read... Much better than many other YA books these days, but it's just because I hate fantasy...

Do you not like the books themselves, or all the propaganda and attention they're getting?

Yeah.The attention they're getting is way too much, which is why some people hate the books, or the whole series.  ;D

But seriously, I'm still waiting for Mortal Engines movie to be made... It was also published by scholastic... like 8 years earlier...

Yeah, I guess that's kinda true, I used to like it but then I read some other books and it kinda disgusted me that the books I read we're so much better than HG, it just gets undeserved fame, anyways when I was reading the books they just progressed and got worse AAND worse, it was totally uninteresting, so I just dont like the books

You sound a little like me. You just go through a reading PHASE. It's like if the book is semi-decent then it's your new FAVORITE book(while you are reading) but then you finish and get another book and it's WAY better(or so it seems). It's "new toy syndrome".

I got 99 problems but Hunger Games ain't one.


I felt that was totally appropriate and needed... cx

Don't worry, the topic creator has been diagnosed with new toy syndrome, which is very common(I sometimes suffer from it as well).

HG was a good BOOK. Just the first one. It went down hill from there.
I feel like the last book was just a huge let down. I waited in line to buy it at midnight and then it just wasnt worth it (though the cupcakes were good :p)
So I don't hate HG, I really did love it but it's not the best book out there.
Of course...nothing will EVER live up to Harry potter in my mind :p only book that has ever come close is GOne  :p

I don't get the new toy syndrome... that takes 2 years or more for that to happen.... *I'm looking at 2007 optimus prime*  ;D
