    Is this referring to a super gritty reboot of Hungry Hungry Hippos?

    Since I got my Kindle just recently, it was, that I finished reading the first Volume just 2 hours ago.
    It's definately not my favourite book ever but neither is it just "ok". So I'd say, that it's a great book and therefore somewhere between "It's my fav" and "it was ok". :)


    /e: Looks like I forgot something.. Silly me... :/
    I'm now already in the fifth chapter of Catching Fire and I'm looking forward to be reading more, since it's really thrilling :3

    Read the book in half a day. It was good and I enjoyed it. I know movie is gonig to suck just like the Twilight saga.

    @[member='The Catboy']: I would recommend reading the book before seeing the movie.

    The books are usually better than the movies. I don't expect this franchise to be much different, but I will go to see it anyway.

    One thing I found weird was who they cast to play Cinna, why Lenny Kravitz? xD

    The first book was the best of the trilogy, IMHO [Mockingjay being the worst, again, IMHO].

    Personally, if they stay as faithful to the source material as possible, then the movie adaptation should be more than satisfying. The thing about it is that half the cast in this movie will be gone by the sequel, and in 'YA' book-to-movie adaptations, that's never been done before IIRC [well, the Narnia movies, maybe, if you count that as YA, which I don't].

    PS
    Hopefully, this doesn't degenerate into the "Team Gale/Peeta" BS. Which looks likely. Damn fangirls...

    I read the first book a couple years ago, and it was just kinda OK. For some reason my little brother's super pumped about the movie, and bought his ticket a couple weeks ago. Read the book again last night, still found it mediocre, and if I bother to see the film it won't be until it hits the rental sites. Casting looks decent enough, anyways, with only a couple questionable choices.

    Still leagues ahead of Twilight.

    I like the books. I am not sure that the movies will be that good.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of the Hunger Games. I might go see the movie, though.

    I was expecting "more" to be honest.
    They focused too much on the main character and pretty much cleared the ending since the beginning.
    Really.. it was a good movie, very good concept but they should have spread it out a little more. I havent read the book but I figured out the ending before I was done watching halfway.

    I finished the book, it's tempting to watch the camrip that's around the web now but I want to wait aha
    The book is Katniss' words, it's supposed to be focused on her.

    The movie wasn't all that. Not sure what people are getting hyped for.
