The Hunger Games

I’ve just finished the “Hunger Games” trilogy, very popular among the teen women set.  The first volume, called The Hunger Games, is a real page-turner once you get into it.  It’s downhill from there.  The second volume is not as good as the first; it ends quite abruptly.  The third volume is something of a dog’s breakfast: too many characters introduced and killed off (I couldn’t keep track of a lot of them) and the politics got more and more confusing.  I’d recommend the first volume for a change of pace, but don’t bother with the others.
