On November 22nd, 2013 I went to see The Hunger Games movie in theaters with Jeff, Dave and my little sister Hannah. Prior to seeing the movie, I’m talking way prior, I read the entire Hunger Games series.
I’ve found when they turn books into movies that it’s not a good idea to finish reading the book and immediately go see the movie. Reason being, there can be many discrepancies that can mess with the version of the book you were imagining while reading.
I read The Hunger Games series a while ago, so I didn’t remember all the little details they left out when they made the movie, but my sister did.
She read the books around the same time as me but her 12 year old brain remembered every flaw! I thought the movie did a great job of bringing Katniss’ story to life.
Plus, they had the Divergent preview before the movie started – and that is another book-turned-movie that I enjoyed.
