Ohh....that sucks. There's still a lot of interesting stuff that happens in the book so try not to let it ruin it for you too much!

Basically - post-apocalyptic North America. Divided into 12 districts and every year, two kids are randomly chosen from each district and they're thrown into an arena to fight to the death - this event is called The Hunger Games. Last one standing is the winner. The first book tells the story of one of the Games.

LOL, I read the first book and was so upset by it I swore off the whole series. But it bugged me not to know how it ended, so I looked up spoilers. I didn't learn every detail, but I did get the skeleton version of the last two books. And then I decided to go ahead and read them.

But yeah, A LOT of stuff happens between the end of the second book and the epilogue of the third book.

I'm starting the first book right now! Didn't read through the thread, but just wanted to let everyone know just in case I come back as an addict.
