Suzanne Collins is the author of a young adult trilogy called The Hunger Games. We'll be seeing The Hunger Games on the big screen in 2012. I really enjoyed the books and am looking forward to the movie. I hope I won't be disappointed. Have you read this series, and do you think you'll see the movie?
The movie trailer is alright, but I'm not sure if I'd go and see the movie if I hadn't read the book. If you haven't heard about it, here is the blurb:
"In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. As the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives."
