    I have yet to see Catching Fire, but the first book is sooooo much better than the film version.

    Catching Fire was okay. The ending was awesome, though. Like AWESOME!

    Hmm, so far I actually feel like they did a good job with the movie..

    Ehh. For me, a big part on the book was reading Katniss' thoughts in a given situation. But, there's no way you could translate that to film that well. Therefore, some cool plot things were lost. Plus, just a few minor details bothered me about the film. Everything leading up the the games in the movie all felt way too rushed to me.

    I've heard Catching Fire is a LOT better than the first film, at least from people who've also read the book.

    Catching Fire is the best Hunger Games book. The third book was just not good.

    I was JUST about to post about reading LOTR and Rob is also reading xD haha
    Well, I'm at the beginning of Fellowship. It's like the 4th time trying to get through that book. But those other times I've read it in Swedish but now I'm reading in English and I've heard they're A LOT better in English so hopefully I'll get through it this time xD
    The Swedish version is shit x) And I just can't seem to get pass the boring first part of the book, which is like half of the book... I WANT to, I just haven't been able to xD
