I'm a guy, and both my brother and I loved the entire series! (I'm 28 and he's 24)We actually have completely different taste in books. I love fantasy, adventure and historical fiction. He likes graphic novels, action thrillers and military nonfiction. Rarely do we find a series we both love equally. We kind of stay out of each others way sort of(he likes his stuff I like mine). We both own all three Hunger Games though. Actually we went to the book store together the day Catching Fire came out and both bought a copy. I hope this helps.

I am a 45 year old guy and loved it. Anyone who likes SF and Dystopian fiction will love it.

I am a 33 year old male and just finished the series. I really enjoyed it and couldn't put it down. I normally read Stephen King and Jim Butcher's Dresden Files.

I think your friend would like it. I hope it works out!

While the books is marketed as YA, it is more adult than most typical young adult novels, and also the romance angle, while significant, isn't the focus of the book, so males will like it. Plus the there is a lot of action as denoted by the title of the book, so it has a wide appeal for both genders and across all age ranges.

My husband is 22 and he normally can't find a book that he's interested in so he hardly ever reads, (I think he's read a total of 8-9 books for pleasure and 7 of those were the Harry Potter books), and I suggested we read this series, and he's HOOKED!!! He started book 1 a week ago and he's already almost done with book 3 (that's really fast for him).

My husband (45) loved it. So did a friend of ours who is 30. And so did my 11 and 14 year old sons! I actually haven't meet anyone who hasn't liked it.

I am a 62 year old male and loved the series. I was so excited to here there was going to be a movie. There is no reason for adult males to dislike the book moreso than any other book. It rocks! I think this is the only commercial product I have ever 'liked' on facebook. Send me to the opening. Heh!

Male in my 40s here. I read entire series and really enjoyed it. I thought the 2nd and 3rd books were a bit more interesting as they delve a bit deeper into the political aspects of government control and rebellion, in my opinion.
Seeing as its on a top selling list of books and ebooks sold, I think it's safe to say this series would appeal to more than the female teenage sector, right?
I also have male friends who read the series and enjoyed it.

Honestly the idea that this is a book for girls or women is kinda bizarre.

YA is dominated by female fans so the diehard THG fanbase is comprised of women/girls but at it's heart I think it's more of a male series of books at heart. All the sci-fi, gore and all that. Even the romance isn't that strong, it's just kinda there.

And yeah I know some women like that stuff too I'm just generalizing.
