Why YOU Should Read The Hunger Games

So I just finished reading The Hunger Games, the first of three novels in Suzanne Collins’ epic trilogy. After reading the book in its entirety in a little over 3.7 seconds, it’s safe to say I’m officially OBSESSED and just cannot get enough. Not only do I hope to wear a flaming dress, excel in archery, and own my very own Mockingjay, I also hope to BE just like Katniss Everdeen one day. When did poor, hungry, coal-miner’s-daughters become so damn witty and smart? I’m not sure, but I need to start eating (or not eating) whatever District 12 has been giving her.

Five pages shy of finishing chapter 27 of the unreal, addictive, enchanting novel, I made my family pause our day of vacation bonding to run to Barnes & Noble and buy the sequel, “Catching Fire.” Then it hit me… on March 23 the movie The Hunger Games will reach theaters across the country and bring my newfound obsession to life.

As a film major, I can already tell by the trailer that the cinematography, sound, and mise-en-scene will be out of this world, but it will be more than just a well-made film. Here are reasons why everyone needs to see The Hunger Games in March, and should definitely read the book before then. I promise, you will NOT be let down. And remember, may the odds be EVER in your favor.

    I have read the entire series 5 times! My personal favourite is most definitely Catching Fire. Hunger Games has the action, Mockingjay has the emotion (and a bit of action), but Catching Fire has both constantly! :) Hope you all read it!

    I've been trying to get so many of my friends to read this trilogy…I need to post this slideshow on their Facebook walls mwahaha. Seriously, though, they are amazing. I'm getting an iPad in the next week and I need the e-books so I can just read them over and over all of the time.

    But PLEASE don't call this the next Twilight! The Hunger Games has an actual decent story line and deep multi-faceted characters…so it is way BEYOND Twilight in its quality by far!!!

    I read the entire trilogy in two days is so addictive that is impossible to put down … seriously this is a must read book for everyone and I love Twilight but The Hunger Games is even better.
