When I read the Hunger Games I didn't think it was a girl book but later I found out that I was told that it was a young adult book and now I'm seeing all of the screaming idiot teenage girls on TV and I'm wondering what I got myself into.
LOL. The book was kind of meh to me, but good enough to keep reading. I happened to be reading it when I went into the hospital for a minor surgery and 3 different female nurses noticed and gushed about how much they loved the book. After surgery, I had some physical therapy and two of the female therapists also gushed about the book. Those were my first hints that women seemed to be getting more out of the book than I was.

If you put Arnold in a wig and a dress the movies would be identical.

I love how everyone is comparing this movie to others whenever they haven't seen it (and in some cases have not read the books).

Let's see - futuristic drama set in a totalitarian state about contestants in a to-the-death competition put forth as bread-and-circuses entertainment for the poor huddled masses?

Been there, done that.

Actually its contestants in a to-the-death competition for entertainment for the wealthy privileged capitol. The poor huddled masses revolt against the Hunger Games.

I enjoyed the books for the most part. My husband liked them as well, but not near the level as many others. He cited the main cause being that he found Katniss to be whiny and indecisive throughout the books and it pretty much annoyed him to no end. I, myself, did not really find it that bothersome. Did you have a similar feeling? I'm curious if that is a common difference between the males and females reading the book.

I did not find her whiny or indecisive. She is naive. All she really wanted was to take care of her little sister and mom and be left alone.

I didn't care for the Peeta/Katnis/Gale romantic triangle and all the time spent examining Katnis' thoughts about it. I think the whininess and indecisiveness has to do with her confused feelings about the two guys.

I'd be willing to bet your husband didn't read the Twilight books. I found Bella to be an incredibly whiny and annoying character, ugh, so I guess Katniss seemed okay in comparison and I don't remember really thinking that about her too often when I read the hunger game books. Sometimes, sure, but not in a way that caused me not to enjoy the books. I guess Katniss' pretty frickin horrible situation throughout, she didn't seem too overly whiny about it to me.

Yeah, I probably wouldn't have thought of "whiny" as a reason I was ambivalent about the books. I just thought the action and suspense was kind of boring and the romance aspect didn't do anything for me.

Didn't the triangle really evolve in the 2nd and 3rd books?
