I read this after I watched the movie…and then re-watched the movie because I couldn’t get enough of this. I don’t think it took me very long to finish book. Suzanne Collins’ writing is friggin’ awesome and the world she created…I wouldn’t want to live in it but I think the idea was amazing and very well executed.

The Catching Fire movie was my introduction into The Hunger Games trilogy. I made a deal with a friend. I’d go watch Catching Fire with him if he watched Thor: The Dark World with me. Obviously the movie franchise is just as popular as it’s novel counterpart and at the time I stayed away from overhyped things, so I was quite reluctant to watch this movie. I came out of the cinema needing to read all the books because I fell in love. Also, out of all the movie adaptations of the trilogy, this one is my favourite because it was almost exactly like the book.

The Decision

Hmm…tough choice to make. I’d go with the movie for this one since that is where my love for this series started.
