Who else has read the trilogy? Seen the movie?

I personally LOVED the series and think it ended perfectly. And as for the movie...wow. That was probably the best movie based off a book that I have ever seen. The stuff they added was beneficial and perfect, and the stuff they left out didn't ruin the story at all.

I'm about to start the second book. Loved the first. I felt the movie, while still good, felt rushed.

I read the trilogy but did not see the movie, Unlike you I was disappointed in the ending but usually am in trilogy endings. I also felt the last book rambles a bit like the author was tired of the story and was trying to fill up the paper. On a score from 1-10 I give it a 7 or 8.

I also read the trilogy, but have not seen the movie. It was quite a predictable story line and I was not a fan of the ending, but I did enjoy the quick and easy read. I was very much hooked and read each book in a day and a half (so less than a week for the trilogy).

I read the trilogy and for the most part I loved it. The last book dragged a little bit. I saw the movie that day it opened and loved it too! I'm a fan!! Can't wait for the next movie!

We play hunger games right before lunch every day, and snack time

Good books and movie

Loved the books, less than thrilled with the movie. I mean, it was ok... but not up to my standards.

I loved the books, the 3rd dragged on for a while, but I cried towards the end very sad that her sis died, but kicked A#% when she took out the person who was responsible, they didn't see it coming.
I have not seen the movie, but I am planing on it.

ooh, this is making me want to bring out my kindle and restart the third book! I used to read it while I pumped at work last year but, for some reason stopped! Loved the first two and I also really liked the movie.

I've read the books and seen the movie, I liked both but Peeta was not what I expected. Having said that I still thought he was cute and believable between him and Katniss.
