Hungry For The Hunger Games

I'm finally jumping on another bandwagon. This week I finished up Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, so I busted out Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games and started listening in my car yesterday on the way to work. THG is a much-hyped young adult trilogy about a dystopian society in which teenagers fight to the death every year to get food for their fellow district members.

Wow. Remind me not to raise kids in a dystopian society.

I'm only about three chapters in so far, so I can't give you much on it yet, but so far I'm enjoying it. (There's a boy with a girl's name, the only thing that's pulled me out of the story so far.)

Why am I writing a post about a book I haven't really even read yet? Because the movie's coming out next month, and if you haven't seen the trailer yet, it's fantastic! One of my secret dream jobs is to make movie previews, and this particular trailer (the actual theatrical version, not the TV versions) makes me wish again that I lived in Hollywood and got to create these for a living. It's a couple minutes long, but it doesn't feel that long, and by the countdown at the end, you'll be dying to see what happens next.

Check out the trailer at THG.
