I have never completed the book series but I have always loved and looked forward to the Hunger Games movies. I was especially looking forward to this one because I wanted to know what a Hunger Games movie would be like without actual hunger games taking place. This was a fabulous movie that did not disappoint.

I am a huge fan of the Hunger Games trilogy so when asked to review the movie, of course, I was excited to do so. My enthusiasm waned; however, after realizing that I was less then enthralled with the Hollywood version of the book.

I was slightly uncomfortable to admit to everyone I had read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The idea that I was reading a “young adult” book shook my pride just a little but I soon overcame that insecurity when adult after adult told me how much they enjoyed the book. Yes, it is written for young adults and is; therefore, an easy read, but that doesn’t detract from the story. The plot is creative and the story hooked me right from the beginning.

If one of your family members were forced to fight for his or her life, yet you had the opportunity to step in for them, would you? Honestly, I get the feeling that not many people would. Yeah, many people say, “Of course I would! It’s family!” but when it comes down to it, and they’re actually put into this situation, would they do it? In The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, families are put to the test. It shows that sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you don’t necessarily know how you will react.
