Book One.

I basically read this book in two sittings. It was completely one of those books i didn’t want to put down. I’m still thinking about it as if i’m still reading it, and all i want to do is pick up Catching Fire and carry on reading. I am pacing myself, though.

The first person narrative was a little jarring at first, but i quickly got used to it and really, it’s necessary. The reader needs to get inside Katniss’ head and understand her motivations and conflicting, confused emotions. She’s an interesting character and it’s refreshing to read a lead female character who is truly independent and not defined by the men around her.

I liked the film, and really didn't expect to. I'm looking forward to seeing the second one when I get the chance.

I liked the film a lot as well. The only thing about it was how society swung back to violence as our popular pleasure. Currently the popuar pleasure in entertainment of this kind is public humliation. But like you say, this might not keep people in their place.

The book > the film. I cannot stress this enough. There is so much more about the world and society and the games in the book.

The only thing missing from the book was the riot at district 11, but in my imagination it still happened.
