Okay so I didn't see a thread for this and thought I should make one. Smile

The Hunger Games is right now one of my favorite series because of how addicting the books are. I've only read the first one so far, but plan on reading the rest when I have spring break. What does everyone think about the Hunger Games?

I love love LOVE the Hunger Games. Its one of the few series I've gotten so into I've actually read fanfiction of. I'm not a huge fanfic reader. But I love the characters so much, I just wanted more. This is definitely one of my favorite series of all time. My favorite character's Johanna, so I kinda try to read anything I can about her XD Especially her and Katniss Twisted Evil

I'm so excited for the movie I get bouncy every time I see the commerical X3

I read a preview. I also read an article on the creation of the movie and I was pleased to see that (it appears) they took the time to actually teach the main character how to use a bow.

That's a really good choice to make as a director. It's really hard to pretend to know how to use a bow and arrow correctly.

It's not that hard being better that Twilight actually, but I'm afraid the crazy fandom (not the real fans, I talking about the teenage girls who sees the movies just because the guy is hot -is it? I don't know who he is-) could ruin the whole idea of the books.

Oooh. I thought you were talking about the written quality of the books. I wouldn't know that seeing how I don't know the characters. :/ I've only seen pictures of the book covers and the girl characters on tumblr.

Awe. The books are so much better than the movie. The movie left out parts of the story that made the characters relationships stronger. So the characters didn't show much of their connections and it bothered me. There was less impact than there could have been.

The books are definitely worth reading. The beginning of the book may be a bit boring, but after you get through that, you will love it!

Okay so the plot of the story is a bit complicated because there are multiple parts to it. Most of the plot of the first book has to do with trying to survive the Hunger Games and giving us the background of Panem and what the capital is doing. Also it's about rebelling against the capital.

And if you have a Kindle you can also electronically borrow a book from participating local libraries. The Internet is so helpful nowadays! *Giggles*

You can loan books on the Nook?

Sorry, I don't have a kindle or a nook. I refuse to get one of those because I rather read books physically. However thanks for the offer. ^^
