The Hunger Games

When I realized the movie was coming out soon, I put my name on the reserve list (600 something) and got my copy on Thursday after work. I only got 11 pages in before I could really dig into it on Friday. And it was done by Saturday afternoon.

It was a page turner.

I ended up seeing the movie on Saturday. My husband didn't read the book and he felt it was easy to follow along. The only thing he never got was Haymitch also being from District 12. There were a few things they changed. (I won't spoil anything for anyone.) I think they're setting up for the next movies. I felt more connected to Katniss in the book than in the movie. In the book she's intelligent and bad ass. In the movie she comes across as more bad ass.

I heard an interview on NPR and the second one hasn't been written yet. He better get cracking!
