I finished reading The Hunger Games trilogy last night in anticipation of the movie’s release in March. I enjoyed reading each book, but felt shocked by the third volume’s unbelievably depressing end. I thought this was supposed to be children-appropriate–something that needs to have a happy ending. If you finished the three books, how did the end make you feel?
Regardless, I’m very excited to see the first movie…and the second and the third when they come out. Like all book nerds, I worry that the movie will take on a different form than the book. I didn’t feel too happy about the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo deviating from a pretty major climax that appears in the original novel. I also didn’t feel too happy recently upon realizing that His Dark Materials film trilogy will probably never see completion. So, in sum, if The Hunger Games stays true to the literature and completes all three movies in the trilogy, I’ll be a very happy movie-goer! How about the rest of you?
