Jackie (jackie1301) | 41 comments So I started Hunger Games two days ago and actually it is really hard to put it down. I am sure, some maybe most of you guys did finish it within some hours but with my limited reading time I am really fast *LOL* The story just got me from the first page... So can't wait to continue with "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay"

OMG Aiyanna, you're so into it. I'm never have a dream about books I read.

I'm starting the first book and halfway through it. Can't wait to finish it and continue to Catching Fire. But I have to stop for a while because my neck was cramped and my eyes were blurry. LOL

Nikki (nikkitysplitt) I just finished Hunger Games. I really enjoyed it. I read chapter 1, a day or two ago, and just hadnt had time to pick it back up until yesterday evening around 7. My poor children were so ignored and neglected. I couldn't put the book down, and stayed up way later than I normally do.

I will say this, had she left the last chapter out, it would have probably been a pretty good stand alone book in itself.

I enjoyed the idea of the whole story. I felt it was pretty darn original. I've never read anything with a Mad Max/Running Man theme to it, especially something that involves killing children so openly, although its easy to forget they are children, since they are all self sufficient. I thought Katniss was clueless many times, about interacting with other humans, Peeta especially. But, on the other hand, if Peeta was so brave as to tell her he's always loved her, than he should have made sure it "sunk in" correctly.

I wonder how Cato killed Thresh, and the others who were never talked about.

i love this book i'm glad you liked it!!!! it is one of my favorites!! I love Peeta!!!


message 21: by Nikki (new)

Nikki (nikkitysplitt) Yeah, I liked Peeta also, but I feel bad for him about his predicament. My friend is bringing me the next book Monday, so I'm excited to see how things play out.

I was sad about Rue.


message 22: by Artemis, Head Mod! (new)

 Artemis | 4504 comments Mod
i know i cried when Rue died!! The books just have such a way of picking you up and pulling you into them


message 23: by Nikki (new)

Nikki (nikkitysplitt) Im interested to see how the movie adaptation will play out.


message 24: by Carina (new)

Carina Read and completely fell in love with this book.(specially Peeta!) I havent been able to stop talking to my sisters about it, Im the bookworm in the family so they mostly brush me off. But I already got my younger sister hooked on VA, and got Vampire Academy as a Xmas present for my older sister, so it wont be long for her too.
Ok my point is, Im very stuborn when I believe a book is really really worth reading. So I wont give up until I get them hooked on Hunger Games too! lol
I cant wait to read CATCHINGFIRE but there are about 9 people infront of me =/


message 25: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) The Hunger Games rocks! Peeta <333

If I was you Carina I would just buy it LOL. I had to buy Mockingjay cause the library didn't have it >.<


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) This series and Mortal Instruments are two that I had to own in print form (not ebook) so I could share them with others.


message 27: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) I'm going to eventually buy the rest of both of those series. I have the last book to each of TMI and THG lol. If I can't get a book when I want it I'll buy it >.<


message 28: by Carina (new)

Carina Yup! this is a series that i want to own in print, not just in ebook for =)


message 29: by Artemis, Head Mod! (new)

 Artemis | 4504 comments Mod

message 30: by Carina (new)

Joanna (joannaoj) | 394 comments hey look at this guys... there's a rumor that Hailee Steinfeld is in the running for the lead role in the screen adaptation of “The Hunger Games,” as Katniss Everdeen.

so what do you guys think? i kinda like her, because she's a fresh face in the industry. she might pull it off.


message 32: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) She could pull it off but she is only 14


message 33: by Carina (new)

Carina Ooooo I like her!! And its probably good that she's only 14 because by the time they film it and then the other 2 movies...we dont want her to look too old right ;D

True!


message 35: by Timmysparks (new)

Timmysparks | 1637 comments I love her! She's the perfect picture i had for Katniss.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) She's not bad. Better than 90% of the fancasting looks. At least she's not a palefaced, light haired girl...


message 37: by Joanna (new)

Joanna (joannaoj) | 394 comments you should check out her new movie this christmas. True Grit! :)
i really think she should play Katniss. :) *fingers crossed*


message 38: by Carina (new)

Carina I'll be watching True Grit for sure now, it was filmed here in NM =)


message 39: by ari ♥ (new)

ari ♥ (arianara) | 323 comments Can't they hurry up and make the movie already, oh and make it GOOD! :p


message 40: by Jacquel (new)

Jacquel (clairevioletthorpe) Are the books good?


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Hunger Games?

This is a must read trilogy. I can't think of many books I'd even count as a must read, even the ones that I really like. This is one of them.


message 42: by Jacquel (new)

Jacquel (clairevioletthorpe) Well, I'll get them as soon as I can make a trip to the library.
