We finally saw The Hunger Games.
It was wonderful.
There were some interesting changes - though not many. I'm sure wondering if the Mayor's daughter will ever become part of the series...they kind of just wiped her right out now didn't they?
I missed some of the character development, but think they all played their parts well.
I L.O.V.E.D. Caesar Flickerman. Wasn't he just fantastic? Oh, and I Effie was also perfect. Quite possibly my two favorite characters.
I've read the book twice - but both times didn't catch the berries at the end for Seneca. Did that really happen? Sometimes I get going so fast in a book that I literally have to slow myself down and reread some parts because I get so excited. Perhaps I missed that, twice!
The people of the capitol were everything I hoped they would be.
I was very surprised to see the photo of Papa Everdeen on the mantle - I had no idea the role was played by my good friend, Ben Quinn. Rob and I both laughed hysterically. (Please tell me you've seen the movie AND noticed that, Kat!)
