My twitter and facebook are both abuzz with this Hunger Games business. I am not one to get involved in a craze.
Years back when the first Harry Potter movie came out I went to see it. I was bored out of my mind. I had not read the books so I thought that perhaps I was missing something. Then the second HP came out and I went to see it again much to my dismay. I took a nap. Snoozefest. I was lost 30 minutes into the movie. Or maybe I didn't give it a chance because of the hype. Regardless, I have not read the books even to this day.
Then came along Twilight. Craze. No thanks.
Hunger Games. Craze. Intrigued. Why? I am not sure. I don't like the premise; fighting for food. Children killing other children. Just not my cup of tea. But I'm intrigued because of the craze this time. I don't want to get sucked in to the hype. I don't like books or movies with blood and death. So why on earth would I even think about downloading a sample of the book on my Kindle? No clue but I did. I read the first chapter really quick. And I still find myself intrigued.
Do I give in to the craze? I don't know.
