    I want to read the book. I guess the reason I like it so much is because I never read the book.

I am a very sensitive person, but I didn't cry at all, but I felt very emotional, as if I were going to. 6 days has passed since I watched the movie, and every single emotion I felt throughout the movie is still going through me. Idk if it just me though.
    I think the emotional experience must have been better since you did not read the book. Since I read it, I knew exactly what was going to happen, so I never felt it to be too suspenseful. I did think it was a good movie. They stayed very true to the book which I liked.

    The Hunger Games is my favorite book well actually the second one in the series is my favorite XD
    There were some parts of the movie that were disappointing to me since I knew exactly what would happen (i re-read the book again a few days before the movie)
    Overall I'd give it a 9/10
    But, Book > Movie

    The movie was REALLY good....if you haven't read the books. The movie just left out some details(no spoilers in case you haven't watched the movie). Then again, I came into the movie with really high expectations...
    Overall, Book> Movie by a lot. Rating: 8/10 just because of the left out details

    If you read the book, chances are you don't like the movie.

    The book was loads better than the movie. I read it first (little over 1yr ago) and just saw the movie last week. They did leave out a few minor details, but I thought the movie was excellent regardless.


    The books were superb, movie was great.
    Read the books and watch the movie.

    I bought the book while I was in Fargo. But I haven't gotten around to reading it (Mostly cause I'm reading a different book). Looks short.
    I live in Canada, I literally have to warm up before I cube :)
