Book to Movie: The Hunger Games

READ MY REVIEW OF THE BOOK HERE

Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister's place for the latest match. 

Duration: 2 Hours 7 Mins
Rated: PG-13
Action, Drama, Sci-Fi




My Opinion:
This movie was really good, and for the most, part lived up to the image I had in my head.
After reading the book, I was hoping that certain areas in the movie adaption would be left alone, and I was happy to see that those elements are what they enhanced in it.
There were a couple of missing moments, but that's to be expected if you compact all that action into a couple of hours.
Still it was good. 
Now I have to tell you, the hubby didn't read the book and was still entertained by the film. Yes, it is manly enough the other half won't complain about it being a chick-flick. You may even see him get right into it!
So I recommend this even if you haven't read the book. Though I reiterate how silly that would be and you really should get the series!
I hope they make Mockingjay and Catching Fire into movies too... but if that's the case, I best get reading!


5/5


Recommend?? Of course!!!


DISCLAIMER: I saw the film on my own. I was not compensated for this post or my opinion.

  1. It's worth reading the whole trilogy. Haven't seen the movie yet, but it's getting great reviews by many book bloggers.

  2. My husband loved it too. It inspired him to read the books. He finished all three in one month. That's unheard of for him.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
