The Hunger Games Dilemma

I’ve read the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins last year, before I even knew there was going to be a movie (I know, everybody else knew, but I don’t like movies that much!), and I was super impressed. I went through the whole series in a few days, and I absolutely loved the first two books… The third one was, well, just not the same to me. Still good though, but on a lot of ways a different story from the first two. So, end of this month, the Hunger Games movie is going to be in theatres. And I’m not really sure what to think of it. I’m a book person, and in my opinion, the book is (almost – there’s one exception) always better.

Curious as I am, I’ve already checked out the trailer, and it looks all right. So right now, I’m in a dilemma; to see or not to see? I know, nobody will die if I see it and hate it, but I’ve seen so many wonderful books being raped (excuse the choice of words please) by movies, and it pisses me off every damn time. It’s insane how upset I can get about something like that happening, and not just for the €10,- wasted on a movie ticket!

Has anybody of you already seen the movie? Or are you (not) planning to? What would you do in my place?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Parents, caveat emptor! The storyline is brutal. Even though the writing is geared for young adults, the main characters are teenagers, there’s very little physical romance, and the actual violence would probably count as PG-13 nowadays… it’s probably one of the most terrifying books I’ve read in a very long time!
