The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Started Sunday night, finished Monday night. It’s that gripping and exciting. I’m very interested in picking up/borrowing the sequels just to see what else happens to the world Suzanne Collins created.

Having watched some trailers for the upcoming film, I am reminded of how unusual my brain is. Examples:

  • When I started reading, despite the description of the forest around it, District 12 in my head has a blood red sky/hue to it because of the war. The forest was green and lush, just not District 12 itself.
  • The Capitol was envisioned similar to Coruscant from the Star Wars prequels.
  • Katniss looked like a hooded, elvish princess about 90% of the time (during the games or in the forest that is).
  • Rue reminded me of Susie Johnston from Phineas and Ferb.
  • Thresh reminded me of Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver.
  • Cato looked like Billy from Boxer Hokey.

I can’t wait to see how wrong my brain’s interpretations are proved by the movie. 🙂
