Reading has never really been joyful for me. The Hunger Games was one of the good movies that made me want to read more. Watching the movie and reading the book is two different things. I saw how much more detail you get when reading.
I love how the first four are all horrible monster muttations and then there's just Peeta. Because they've turned Peeta into a muttation that has just as much as not more of a horrible effect on Katniss as the others do. It just makes me so sad.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I love how Katniss never lost her morality; even though she saw the most explicable things in the arena--TWICE. She witnessed horrible things and never lost her humanity.
