Hunger Games

Who has seen the new Hunger Games movie- Mocking Jay? (I see you over there, decynthus, waving your hands! We went together, LOL!) No, seriously? Decynthus and I went yesterday and to be completely honest, I wasn't sure what to expect. My son enjoyed it- he saw it opening day. But I've read comments and reviews that said it's all talk and no action. It's mostly under ground, no color, none of the excitement of the games themselves. And I kept wondering if these same people had read the books- because it doesn't sound like it to me.

Anyway, I completely enjoyed it. I thought there was plenty of action and it's definitely darker and certainly sadder. But I have read the books and I knew what the third story entailed. And I felt they did a good job of staying with the canon. I'll be curious to see how this ends- if they stay with the ending as it's written which is not a happy ever after- just a closure that is realistic for these characters and what they'd been through, especially Katniss.

These books hold a special place in my heart because of the story behind them. She self published these when self publishing was just barely getting off the ground. She couldn't get them picked up by a traditonal big house publisher but when she hit it big self publishing them, they all raced to her doorstep. So yeah, these books are special to me for a few reasons.
