i read it i saw it.

I finished reading this book about an hour before we headed to the theater to go see the movie last night. I had to rush and read for a few hours straight after work, but it was probably one of the best things I ever did.

                                             

 
I was determined not to miss the boat on this one. I have notoriously missed most of the fads in my life, except for Lost because Lost was amazing. Whenever people started talking about Harry Potter or Twilight (not that I really regret turning my nose up at the Twilight bandwagon), I was automatically the lame person in the room who hadn't read the books or seen the movies.

I have to admit that I have never really been attracted to fads, but I decided to give this one a chance in order to break my cycle of lameness. I confess, it was AWESOME. It took me back to my days of Lost obsession, transporting me into a crazy, imaginative world where anything can happen. getting emotionally invested in the characters. my heart pounding with fear and excitement. the elevated moments. both the book and the movie were highly entertaining.

I can't wait to read the next book, see the next movie, and steadily watch my coolness-meter go up.

I must say I am so proud of you for following the crowd! I still haven't seen the movie! I am lame!

Glad you read it. I am on the third book. Still have not been successful in getting Travis and Josh to read the book. Maybe after they see the movie they will be inspired to read the book (but I won't hold my breath). I'm seeing the movie next week!

Me, too, on the getting on the book bandwagon thing. Except, I was pretty into The American Girls series in its prime.

I also love The Hunger Games and don't regret not reading Twilight.

I finished reading the book hours before as well. Really enjoyed the book and looking forward to completing the series.

I found this blog because you're using the image from my site (TheKnifeFight.com). We're not mad or anything but I encourage you and your readers to check out our review of the book as well as the film.
