Greetings, knitters! Has anybody read the Hunger Games? Recently bought it & was curious what you thought of it.

I liked it. I'm reading the second right now. Saw the movie last weekend and it was pretty good - stayed fairly true to the book (more than most do, IMHO). It's a very easy/quick read. Hope you enjoy it.

I read all 3 of the books and saw the movie on the first
day. I enjoyed the books and the movie. Look forward to movie 2 & 3.

I also read all the books and loved them! Couldn't put them down! I thought the movie was okay, but definitely liked the books better.

Loved the first book. Great beach or plane read. Will read the other two over the summer.

I listened to all three audiobooks. The first was good, the second was 'ok', the third was not so good. I felt the 3rd book was rushed and would have benefitted from more quality time in plot/story development. It's a Young Adult book series, so there are few "big words" and the sentence structures are average/predictable. I also found the reader's voice/performance to be whiney, overly dramatic and thus very annoying at times. This series is not a soap opera and I feel it needs not to be read like one. (Katniss is not a 'Drama Queen', you know?) I did struggle to finish the last book. There was a time that I said, "OK, I've had enough already," to look and noticed that there was only about 20 minutes left in the book. I figured I had toughed it out through 2+ books, I can finish the last 20 minutes. I don't regret listening to all three books, I wanted to finish the series; I'm just dissappointed. I did see the movie this past weekend. I thought it did follow the book pretty well, but I, too, liked the book better.

I'm on the second and enjoying them. My son(13) read all the books and really wanted me to read them.

I think I'm enjoying the conversations with my son the more than the books! His whole 7th grade class went to see the movie las week and he really loved it.
