Hunger Games: Movie or Book
Okay boys and girls. I have a question for you. Do you perfer the movie or book for "Hunger Games".
I have not read the book yet. my two oldest kids have and really enjoyed it. With the DVD being released this past Saturday. I finally watched the movie today. I will say i really enjoyed the movie and wonder if i would enjoy the book.
I have read numerous books that have been turned into movies. Most of the time the movie doesn't live up to book. Examples of movies not living up to authors vision are: Twilight Series, Any thing from Stephen King, John Grisham novels. I will say that some movies have been better in my opinion. For example I enjoyed the Harry Potter movies more than books.
So what do you think in this case? Is book better or is it the movie?
Jennifer Lawrence did an excellent job as Katniss Everdeen. I really like Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy. I thought the movie was put together very well. I am sure if I read Suzanne Collins's book version i would like it also. With that said having three kids and working 50 hours a week didn't know if it was worth my time.
