Finished The Hunger Game Series ... Just WOW is all I'm going to say.

I think I'm going to go back and read 1984. I haven't read it since 1974 and I was very young at the time and don't remember much of it. ;)

Hubby used to read all the Le Carre novels back when. It was never my genre so I didn't. Hubby always thought they were really good.

Gate, I can't decide whether to read The Hunger Games before or after the film.

Read the books before. The books are so good and it will take years before all 3 movies are released. ;)

I'm thinking about it.

Then I read this review sort of where someone had a valid point. When you read the book first and it's brilliant you mostly get disappointed with the film. So I'm on the fence now. Will check our library and see if I manage to read it before it comes to cinema. I liked the trailer a lot.

BUT if you see the movie first the book plot, twist and turns will be ruined and you won't enjoy it as much. ;) READ THE BOOKS FIRST! :icecream:

Reading it, even fought hubby for the kindle so he'd leave it with me today :) I'm surprised that the book doesn't seem that long. I may need to buy the rest of them now, too. I'm reading The Game of Thrones there and the percentage never moves :)
