The Twilight Saga may have some competition– The Hunger Games? Twilight has had teens and adults on the edge of their seats waiting for Breaking Dawn, which comes out in 160 days (November 18, 2011). However, teens and Adults may have a new book-to-movie adaption to pine over… The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
The are no vampires or werewolves, but there is plenty of action in The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is based in the future with 24 teenagers competing on reality show. However, this is not the Jersey Shore think Survivor or MTV’s The Challenge.
Survival of the fittest
Katniss Everdeen is the lead charter in the book, who will be played by Jennifer Lawerence in the movie.
Katniss’s takes the place of her little sister, who is chosen to be entered into The Hunger Games.
What is theThe Hunger Games- two tributes (one boy & one girl) are drafted from each of the twelve districts to be brought to an arena and fight to the death and it is all televised. Modern Day gladiator with stylist and support team?
Yes, for those of you that loved Team Edward of Team Jacob and wished you were Bella… sounds like the movie is going to have Katniss in the middle of two handsome gentlemen.
There is already debate if The Hunger Games is better than Twilight, nevertheless we will have to wait till Spring 2012 for the movie, but you can go pick up the books now….
Happy Summer Reading-
