New Obsession --The Hunger Games

  My latest obsession has been.... The Hunger Games!!! I am totally in love, I started the series one and a half weeks ago and I'm already sixty percent through the third and final book...sigh (almost over).
So today I will give you a quick overview of the book and movie (which we saw opening night!).


Movie Description:
 Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister's place for the latest match.

Book Description:
  In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Acclaimed writer Suzanne Collins, author of the New York Times bestselling The Underland Chronicles, delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

 I was head over heels for the movie which was filmed perfectly to the book, with only a couple slight changes.
My mom who doesn't generally enjoy those kind of movies, genuinely liked this movie
Here is a video that sums everything up perfectly...


I hope you enjoyed my first Book/Movie review!
