This month's book was one that I really was not sure about. I had actually read parts of it before because my son had to read it for school last year (in middle school).
It was hard for me to get past some other road blocks, though--my son had read the book and wanted to see the movie--so, I saw the movie, BEFORE I read the book (very unlike me).
Because the writing was a bit pedestrian, it was hard for me to imagine the book for myself without being influenced by the movie. It did detail some things that made the movie richer for me, but I struggled to be able to shut the movie from my mind completely.
Do you tend to read the book and then see the movie? And how do you separate these two interpretations? For Hunger Games, had you already read the book and then seen the movie or did you see the movie and read the book? Do you think they left out too much from the book?
After you answer my question, please click over to read the rest of the book club questions for The Hunger Games. You can get your own copy of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins at bookstores including Amazon.
