The Hunger Games
Anybody into this trilogy and going to see the movie this weekend?
I read these last year, and have been looking forward to this when I learned that Woody Harrleson would play Haymitch.
The wife and I will check it out tomorrow.

Don't know why it has a thumbs down. I must have fat-fingered it.

My wife read the triology in less than a week. She loves the books. I got "assigned reading" to finish the first one this past week so we could both go see the movie tonight. I finished the first book yesterday. I surprisingly liked the story. I thought it was going to be a really girly book. It is a very easy read and there is a lot of action. The movie is getting great reviews and seems to be of high production quality. I am excited to go see it tonight.

That's too funny. I read them based off of a recommendation from my sister-in-law. Then I noticed all of the "young adults" reading it on the train.

It's definitely not the sappy love story everyone thinks it is (at least the people that haven't read it and try to post about it) and the 2nd and 3rd are even less about boys and girls. I'm excited to see the movie, should be pretty action packed.

The first book was pretty good, but I thought the second two were pretty bad overall. The "good" and "evil" are way too cut and dry for my taste, but I guess that's what you get in a children's/young adult series.
My girlfriend and I are seeing the movie tonight, I'll report back.

Took my 13 year old daughter to see Hunger Games on Friday Night. I enjoyed it a lot. I haven't read the book, but my daughter did. The people behind us talked the entire time, so I got filled in on all the differences between the movie and the book as the movie went along

I think they should teach Ender's Game over Hunger Games, but that's just me. My girlfriend was flipping through the book to check a fact, and I had forgotten how annoying and jarring the first person present tense was.

My 22-year old daughter, who is quite literate, picked up The Hunger Games about a month ago and couldn't put it down. She ended up reading the whole trology in about a week, saw the movie (which she also loved), and is now re-reading the series. And she is nobody's girlie-girl.

Adam Jones just tweeted that he's on his way to see the Hunger Games.
