The movie for The Hunger Games was on this past weekend, so I watched it. It was my first time since seeing the movie in the theater. The first time seeing it, I remember being able to specifically identify the difference between the books and movie because I had just finished reading them. However, 10 months later, I don't remember the differences so much. Watching it did remind me of how wonderfully, horribly messed up these books are and I fell in love with them all over again. So I skimmed through Hunger Games and a bit of Catching Fire last night. I'm going to have to re-read them - slowly - and relive the horrifying, wonderful, gut-wrenching world that is Panem and its Hunger Games.
Have you had any books-turned-movies where the movies made you realize how much love you had for the book? And maybe inspired you to re-read it? (For the record, I do this with Harry Potter and Pride & Prejudice, too.)
I'm also super excited for Catching Fire. I can't wait to see how they do the Quarter Quell...and if they can cut down on some of the tedium (imo) of the first half of the book.
