The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games


Me: Heidi (my older sister), Catching Fire is coming out the day before my birthday.

Heidi: Is that suppose to mean something?

     Yeah...it's official, I have finally become a Hunger Games fan. I had been wanting to the read the books and then proceed to see the movie, but it ended up working backwards. I have really, really had fun discovering the world of The Hunger Games and understanding why people love it so much.

     I saw the movie about 3 weeks ago and was absolutely astounded by the overall storytelling. In a world that is so dominated by shallow romances and horror stories, I was impressed by the sheer honesty of genuine humanity that was found in Katniss Everdeen and how she brought the Hunger Games to the audience. It's not a children's story, but it is a story that questions the human soul. 

     If I had an opportunity to do something right, even if it meant death, would I do it?

     I'm about half-way through the first book; I stayed up until 1 in the morning reading, which wasn't good, because I had school in the morning! It was worth it though!

     So! Like I had with The Hobbit last year, there is a check list I want to fulfill before the next movie comes out.

Read The Hunger Games

Read Catching Fire

Read Mockingjay

See (buy) The Hunger Games

     My school is awesome, because I can buy the books there for a good price and they almost always have them in stock!

  1. I have yet to read or see "The Hunger Games," but I feel like I should just because nearly everyone I know has read/seen them, and yeah... I'm starting to feel like I'm missing out.

    Good luck reading all three before November! From what I hear, they go fast.

  2. I have "issues" with this story but am going to eventually finish the book series and am curious about Catching Fire (movie).

    Hope you enjoy seeing it as a fun birthday outing, Ivy.

  3. Aw, yes, the deep part of the book is what captured me. Without it, I would actually despise the story. But because it is there, it draws me in.
