Hi Everyone - I'm still in FLA, and for the last 2 weeks have had a VERY bad internet connection. I'm doing a lot of reading, Have read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire - am now onto Mockingjay. LOVE THEM - I saw the movie last night, and it was great - followed the book almost exactly !! I was amazed. What I am a little concerned about is that some really young kids are both reading it and seeing the movie - the subject can be VERY disturbing. I hope the parents are reading the book as well....

i read the first book this week, and went to see the movie yesterday. The book was great, as was the movie! they did a pretty great job of keeping the integrity of the book in the movie.

Definitely a very popular series.
I have no desire to read them or see the movie. The premise is really disturbing.
Feel like such a Book Scrooge but there ya go.

Don't feel bad, Cork_Dork_Mom; I don't like the premise either.
I read the first one (thank goodness for libraries!), and I'm seriously considering not bothering with the other two. I haven't read past the first Twilight book either.
Does Hunger Games remind anyone else of Ready Player One?
