Can someone please explain the huge deal with The Hunger Games?

I'm a teenager who loves reading and apparently The Hunger Games trilogy is supposed to be amazing and the holy grail of all book series in all of book history. I personally think it's one of the most boring things I have ever read. Am I reading it wrong or completely missing the point? I really can't understand what the big deal is.

There are reports saying that it's better than Harry Potter, and that it makes Harry Potter look boring. That statement is ridiculous because the only way you can possibly jump to that conclusion is if you have only watched the HP films.

There are even fandoms of THG based on literally nothing.

This bothers me because I want to understand the fandoms over THG.

I am a massive science fiction fan, but these just are not working for me.

Please don't give me hate.
