Exactly! I think the movies won't be up to the mark. People who haven't read the books will just think it's another twilight or something as the movies don't do justice to the books.

Btw when i was reading Mockingjay i was thinking did Suzzane Collins write this one while sleeping? The ending was so so so Awful, everyone just kept dying.

At first even I found the continuous deaths at the end really depressing, especially that of a very important character (for the benefit of those who haven't read it, not revealing details here). But I guess that was just Collins way of showing the gist of the story that in the end war doesn't benefit anyone and the end-result is only death and destruction. She just gave a realistic view of the effects of war on the common people. So I didn't have much issue with the death, only sadness. But the way the ending was handled was pretty hap-hazard, as if she just couldn't wait to finish off with the story.

Hmm. agree! I think the books have a kind of thing... they make us fell in love with it! But movies they don;t go as deep as the books.. ! I feel katniss and finncik are awesome. ! :D I could read the book a million timess... :D They have a nice concept to bring on! :D And more-over Peeta is kind-of sad which i hate, he's being friendly but from heart sad. Anyways Katniss made a special bound with Peeta and Finnick. :D Excited for the movie. :D Even the dialog "tick-tock" :D

i absolutely can not wait to see finnick i cried like a baby when he died LOL almost refused to even finish the book, how am i gonna handle it in the movie.. 

not really a peeta fan. he was supposed to be this perfect sweet guy and so was prim, like basically perfect flawless people and i hate any character which is portrayed like that. but i liked him in the last book, he had an 'edge' and their relationship turned out very exciting. :P

I think the books are much better because in the last movie they did'nt show Madge or Peeta's father giving Katniss the cookies...Ermm

I am excited for Catching Fire. I love Gale and Katniss together and Jennifer Lawrence is doing an amazing job playing Katniss ! Can't wait to see Finnick.

I honestly cannot wait for Catching Fire!

After Harry Potter, I didn't think anything could come close. And while it will always be my favourite; The Hunger Games is one of my favourite series. 

It's so...different and so refreshing. 
It's one of those things that really struck a chord with me and actually had an emotional impact on us as the audience. Taking place in a dystopian future, the idea of children having to fight each other to the death to remind the districts for the "treason against the Capitol" just for taking part in the rebellion is terrible. Some even say it could very well be possible and that it serves as a wake up call. The books raise extremely important issues too.

Plus, the actors are great. Though the movie did miss some things, I still loved it. Jen Lawrence is a great actress, I think she was perfect for the role! And she's awesome.
