Hunger Games, in all its forms

With over 800,000 copies sold, it only makes sense to make a movie. "The Hunger Games", by Suzanne Collins has become "a teenage staple". But it's not only for the targeted age group. Adults and teenagers alike are obsessing over this riveting dystopian novel. "The Hunger Games" has become the face of dystopian novels with it's incredible success. It has triggered a flood of debuting authors with their own version of a twisted society adventure.
Everyone who hasn't read the book yet is scavenging to find a copy. They have been swept off the shelves by hungry readers. Many people hope to read it before the movie comes out.
The movie version of "The Hunger Games" stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne. These three young adults have the daunting task of living up to the legacy of the books, as well as the high expectations of Hunger Games fanatics. The cast includes big stars like Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, and Lenny Kravitz. Fans have pre-ordered tickets to the midnight premiere to the movie. It's unlikely that tickets will be available.
The Hunger Games has been called a global phenomenon, which is highly accurate. With 2 other equally successful books in the series, Suzanne Collins has changed the face of dystopian books forever. Among the many high praising reviews, the Times has said "Best of all remains 'the Hunger Games", with its moving, vivid and consistently well written dystopian adventure about the ultimate Reality TV game. With its unforgettable heroine, this is an outstanding book for both genders that grips like a man-trap."
If you haven't read "The Hunger Games" yet, then you are seriously missing out. You've probably heard your teachers telling you to read a book, and it usually turns out to be nothing of your interest. Well, this book is definitely capable of satisfying and exceeding your standards for "interesting". If you don't believe me, ask your classmates. Pick up a copy of "The Hunger Games" (if you can find one) and be prepared to never stop reading because it's a great book that it is truly "grips like a man trap." Check out the Hunger Games movie as well! It's in theaters on March 23rd.
May the odds ever be in your favor!
