Book a Day Challenge UK: Day 9 – Film or TV Tie-in – The Hunger Games

MONDAY 09th JUNE 2014

Thanks to fellow writer and North Easterner, Victoria Watson, (she blogs here at elementaryvwatson) for this inspiration ‘A Book A Day’ by the The Borough Press. I’ve picked it up a few days late but hey ho, better late than never.

My choice for a Film or TV tie-in is The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games trilogy is by far one of my most memorable reads.

I read The Hunger Games in a couple of days and it was the first book in a long while that burrowed into my brain and got the old clogs ticking. It was a plot that really freaked me out; so real was the concept of a future world with a twisted punishment for a past uprising that I was scared. I felt the fear of the District’s against the Capitol, the anxiety of the potential tributes as they took part in the reaping and the desperation as the chosen tributes struggled to survive.

So vivid was my imagination that I was excited for the films. I was a bit disappointed with the first one. I went with my hubby and our friend Andy, who introduced me to the books. Both Andy and I had read them and we didn’t enjoy the film as much as the hubby, who hadn’t read them.

I guess imagination is a powerful thing.

That said, Catching Fire did make up for it. I’m looking forward to the Mocking Jay film now …
