I just started reading the book and I am hooked.  I'm about 4 chapters in and the way the story is told through the voice of  Katniss-the sixteen year old main character of the story.  The book has been out since 2008, but I'm just getting back into reading more and a friend recommended The Hunger Games to me.  You'll find the book under 'young-adult science fiction'  I wasn't interested until I sampled a few chapters on my Kindle.  That was it.  One download later and it's in my library.  The trailer looks like they're staying true to the story, but, with a few exceptions, movies fall short when they try to recreate what your imagination has already dreamed up.  What do you think?

Have you read the book?  Are you excited to see the movie?
