My friends say these are good books so I am considering purchasing them. However, since this trilogy edition is an e-book for the kindle, why is it more expensive, $28.41, than buying all three books for Kindle separately for $20.54. I don't see what the difference would be between the Trilogy edition and the individual books. Can someone enlighten me? Why would I possibly want to spend $8 more for the exact same story when I don't get the physical books, but only an e-copy which will look and feel the exact same regardless because it will be on my Kindle? I would think it would make more sense to price the trilogy edition for the kindle slightly less than the cost of buying all three of the books individually so that people have an incentive to buy all three together instead of separately, but perhaps I am missing something. Can someone please enlighten me? Is there any reason at all to buy this version over individually purchasing each of the books? Thanks.

Today the cost is $17.39 buying books seperately but $17.49 for the trilogy. Again why buy the trilogy when it is more expensive?

Why is the price changing at all? I mean - it isn't like the supply is dwindling - its an ebook.

Because corporations like to bump price up when it's popular because they know people will buy it no matter what. It's a tangled web of consumerism.

The movie has jacked up the prices.

Price is irrelevant if purchase is not allowed. Has this series always been unavailable in the U.S.?

The books are priced differently on the amazon front page and their respective pages anyway. From the amazon front page, it's $18.99 for the trilogy, $ 5 for the first and $5.99 for the second and third book. On their respective product pages, it's $24.14, $5.00, and $9.19 for the last two books. I'm signed in when viewing all pages. So weird.

Today they have the trilogy e-book priced for $5, but it will probably be yanked down really quickly, so if you know someone who wants it, let them know or gift it to them ASAP.
