The Hunger Games - - -

By Suzanne Collins. I'm whizzing through this book on my Kindle and planning to see the film on Wednesday (Orange Wednesday so 2 for 1!). Film blurb says it
contains intense threat, moderate violence and occasional gory moments - so rather looking forward to it. I know it's written for young adults but I'm enjoying it. Anyone else read it?

Finally gave in and bought the trilogy for my Kindle today - I've been reading so much about these books, and the film - usually YA fiction isn't my thing (the Twilight series remains a mystery to me), but so many people are raving about the Hunger Games that I can't help but give them a go - will let you know what I think once I've got through the first one :)

I'm really glad that I read the book before seeing the film. As usual quite a lot of detail was omitted from the film though I did enjoy it and especially the part of Katniss. I can imagine that young actress, Jennifer Lawrence, will go far.

I'm through the first book - which I enjoyed, although I'm not getting the moral criticism that others seem to find in there - maybe that comes later in the trilogy? It's well written - there's no preachy tone going on - but I found it less complex than I expected - there's very little in the way of commentary or analysis, it's pure adventure and action so far, but I'm thinking that the next 2 books will expand on that a bit - from what I've read some of the later reactions to the action of the first book are incorporated in the film - which may make the 'message' more explicit.

So - a good read, but in no way challenging as yet - I live in hope, and will embark on Book 2 later tonight!

Almost finished Book 3 now - and I have to say that yep, it DID get a lot more complex after the first book, and I've really enjoyed reading the series - I don't want it to end! If I hadn't known, I would never have classified this as 'Young Adult' fiction - it's just a good read, no matter what your age :)
