Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

I only recently read this series and oh my gosh, it was awesome. I was either gripping the book so hard that the pages were about to tear or bawling my eyes out. I read the trilogy books back to back in probably 4 days and I really tried to make the last book take longer as I did not want it to end. I can't imagine if I'd read these books when they came out and had to wait a year between them. I'd have been crazy. Sometimes being the last one to the party has it's up side. While I seriously doubt the movie could possibly be as good as the books (they never are) and how could they put all the horrific things in the movies that the books covered (no way), I'm still going to see this one as soon as possible. If I was told I couldn't see but one movie this year, this is the one that I'd see.
