The theme of this week is –

What is the best movie based on the book?

Join our group HERE to find out next week’s theme!

When I saw the topic for this week, I knew my answer immediately. I think the best movie based on the book was the Hunger Games.

Hunger Games


I feel this movie was pretty much the same as the book. There was one character that I remember that did not make it into the book at all. Since she was not in it, they had to change how Katniss found the Mockingjay pin. Other than that it was just like the book.

I went to see the movie with my daughter’s English class. After the movie the teacher had a discussion with the students about the movie. We all agreed that we were surprised how close to the book the movie was.

That usually does not happen. I always try to read the book first before seeing the movie. The movie is always such a let down. 

The Hunger Games movie played out just like I pictured it in my mind from reading the book. I can’t wait until November 22 when Catching Fire comes out. I hope the movie is just as good as the book this time around as well.

    I haven’t read the book or seen the movie, but my husband did both, and he said the movie did, for the most part, stay true to the book, so he was happy. He really liked them both.
