The books are a fantastic read regardless of age and I really enjoyed the whole story. For anyone that doesn't know the books are set in a post-apocalyptic North America where two children from each District, each area of the country, are chosen and forced to compete in a fight to the death. The books follow Katniss the female tribute from District 12 through her struggles. I know a lot of people had read them already by the time I even got to them, I read them once the movie had come out, so I was a little behind with the times but I couldn't start them whilst I was studying as I knew I wouldn't be able to stop reading once I'd started! Even my boyfriend, who doesn't particularly enjoy reading, loved the books; if you knew him you would know that this is accolade for these novels! We are now, not so patiently, waiting for the DVD of the first book/film to be released because by the time we returned from holiday we had missed the film in cinemas.
If you haven't read these books I would really recommend picking them up from somewhere or downloading them as they are a fantastic, action packed, easy read for all ages.
Bye for now :)
