Back in 2010, when no one knew what The Hunger Games was, several friends urged me to read the book. At the time, two of the three books had been released, and although I barely had time to eat or sleep, I made the mistake of listening to my friends. I started a blog to keep my friends updated on my progress and was immediately hooked on Suzanne Collins’ riveting take on poverty, oppression, war, love and hope.
Skip ahead two years and we have the first movie. Since it was released this weekend and made $214 million worldwide, I thought it would be downright irresponsible not to share my thoughts.
Read my review (only if you’ve seen the movie) at Live From Inside the Seam – my Hunger Games blog.
