For some odd reason I just finished listening to the first 4 books.
You could say they are poorly written. Or written for 13yr-old boys. (No sex, no profanity, much ultra-violence.)
The plot is somewhat interesting. Better than Hunger Games, for example.
Still, I’d never have even heard of this YA series if it weren’t for the films. The films are slightly better.
