Is everyone as fascinated with the Hunger Games as I am? The movie is alright, but the books are phenominal, putting you yourself into the main charachters shoes. The story is not so unrealistic as people would like to believe. We dont know what is going to happen in this world, and it is very possible that another Civil War could happen, and our country would cease to be what it has become. Kids would no longer know what Ipods are and television would only occasionaly be able to work. It certainly brings the communitys together in a time of hardship.
Katniss is a normal teenage girl who breaks laws to protect her family, she also goes through the same changes that we do and finds herself torn between two boys that she desperately loves. I myself am able to connect with Katniss which I think is what fascinates everyone who reads the Hunger Games.
Now for people who don't enjoy reading books, you need to remember that you are only getting part of her life by watching the movies. She is a very complicated person, and to fully understand her you MUST read the books. Books to me, are like watching a movie in my mind, but you get a lot more detail and it doesn't end in two hours. So stop going to the movies every weekend, and pick up a book. Believe it or not, it will save you money in the long run. Thats what I call cheap entertainment.
