The movie The Hunger Games (2012) comes out this week. It's based on a best-selling series of young adult novels written by Suzanne Collins, but I'd never heard of it before they announced the movie. I don't know anything about it. A Google search could tell me a lot, but I'd rather hear about it from someone who knows.
So, I'm asking you. The best responses will be collected together into a blog post this Friday.
What can you tell me about The Hunger Games? Have you read the books? What should I know before I see the film?
