Personally, I liked HG much better than T and Katniss Everdeen is a much better main character than Bella Swan. At least in the books. I'll have to wait until I see the movie to compare Jennifer Lawrence with Kristen Stewart.

Not that there is a movie about it at this time but Hunger Games is similar in many ways to The Giver by Lois Lowry.
Seriously... thanks for the reference. I was thinking of ways to connect the book to other books for my class and you are right, it is very similar to The Giver. Not sure if a lot of my students will have read The Giver but I can give them a rundown!

I CANT STAND Twilight. LOVE The Hunger Games. Today a student of mine yelled "HEY JENN! NO ONE GETS THE REFERENCE!" And did the 3 finger kiss to me. It was awesome, and everyone was all "WHAT IS THAT FROM!?!?!" Lol We just giggled Looooove my students, can't wait to teach the second book!
