I know, I know… I am so very late to the party, but I am now fully on-board the Hunger Games bandwagon. I resisted for as long as I could, but the good reviews just kept rolling in from fellow readers I respect a great deal. So, I listened and bought the trilogy.
Last week (yes, just last week), I finished Book 1, The Hunger Games, and can’t believe I waited so long to start this series. I loved it! And what incredible timing I have, since the movie comes out today and I have tickets to go see it this weekend.
I’m not going to do a full out review. What’s the point? You’ve already read it and loved it, so now it’s time to talk about the movie.
So, here is what I want to know: Do you think the movie lives up to the book?
Tell me what you think about it in the comments!
I’m going to see the movie tomorrow afternoon and then I’ll tell you what I think, too. In the meantime, I’m in the middle of Book 2, Catching Fire, and I’m anxious to see what happens next…
Updated Monday, March 26, 2012, 330p: So, like millions of others, I went to see the movie this weekend. I have to say it was a great adaptation of the book! There were a few things that were different than in the book, but the changes were necessary for the story to make sense on the big screen. Overall, I think it was very well done and I’m looking forward to the next one!
