Sanderson starts from a similar idea of a conflicted young girl coming of age in an oppressive environment and ending up at the heart of a rebellion against the powers that be even the star-crossed lovers angle is there - but the similarities end here. It's unfortunate that the Hunger Games trilogy is boxed into the same genre as Twilight. Not only is it infinitely better in terms of story and characterization, it has that one sp Let's face it, the moment we all hear the words 'young adult fiction', our brains jump to the Twilight series.

I thought there was an absolutely beautiful scene in the war room as the characters named off the moments in the previous books in which Katniss herself had moved them. She was then cast as resident tough girl Clarisse La Rue in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. I was a fan of the Hunger Games the moment I picked up the first book. They are also deeply moving stories, about the desperate people on the outside of rich society. Things I heard about this trilogy before reading it: - It's about kids fighting to the death for the entertainment of the capitol's citizens.
