They are both amazing authors, but the Harry Potter world is so much more involved and complex that I would go with JK Rowling.

I enjoyed reading Rowling's books more, as a child, but I equally appreciate the worldbuilding that went into Collins' Hunger Games trilogy.

It’s Suzanne Collins for me now. Both authors have released an additional book now. If you look at the quality of each book, Collins’ book is much better. I also like that when Suzanne Collins finished the trilogy, she just disappeared with her money and didn’t reappear until the announcement of the prequel. JK Rowling has stayed in the public eye and has done things that has lost a lot of her fan base.

Hunger games is an amazing series, I couldn't keep it aside for even a second :techie-studyingbrown:. It's a super thriller series and I loved reading it. And goes with Harry Potter. Whereas the difference between Suzanne Collins and J.K. Rowling is the choice of target audience and J.K. Rowling is more bent towards the mystical and magical fiction where as Suzanne Collins tries to keep it more of a realistic fiction.

I choose J.K. Rowling. The characters and the adventure she created is unique and wonderful. I still like Harry Potter and Hunger Games.

If I could choose to be one of these authors I would want to be J.K Rowling. The amount of creativity and imagination that has been put into her work is astounding. Not only did she write the Harry Potter novels, but she also wrote the fantastic beasts and where to find them, which is also a part of the wizarding world, just with different characters and in a different time period. If I could have even one-quarter of her talent, I would feel so privileged.
I agree, the way she builds the story and characters... it is so engaging. i have re-read the books quite a few times.

I would have to say Rowling. I think I'll be rereading her books for years to come. I enjoyed The Hunger Games, but I can't see myself becoming attached to them in the same way. I have yet to feel the urge to read that series again, no matter how good it was the first time.
You are absolutely right to this matter.
