top ten reads list of 2010. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share it with my fellow FLICKS Book and Movie Club members, especially with a movie version coming out next March. I also have been secretly pondering how to introduce science fiction to my book club that favors romantic tales. I think of The Hunger Games as “sci-fi lite” and also thought they would enjoy the love triangle. Our meeting is next week at my house; I can’t wait to find out what the ladies thought of this pick!
I listened to the audiobook version of The Hunger Games in preparation for my book club meeting as read by Carolyn McCormick. I thought she was a great reader of the novel. It was a thrilling book to listen to. It was just as thrilling the second time through, especially as I couldn’t remember some the details or had merged some of the details from the later books into the first book. Listening to the novel constantly kept me on the edge of my seat. I think it will make a fantastic movie if they do it right!
Speaking of the movie, I am concerned how they will get Katniss’s inner thoughts on film. Much of what goes on during the games is her inner dialogue – how will that transfer to the big screen? Also I’m a bit scared to see the “mutts.”
Is anyone else looking forward to the movie? Excited? Concerned? Please comment!
If you are looking for a new way to enjoy The Hunger Games, or want to see what all of the fuss is about, I highly recommend the audio book version. For more about this book, please see my original review.
This is my ninth item for the 2011 Audiobook Challenge.
