The Hunger Games”

Part 1 of Suzanne Collins’ Trilogy Versus the Jennifer Lawrence Megahit Film

Book Vs. Movie finally takes on the Suzanne Collins’ classic 2008 novel The Hunger Games and compare it to the 2012 movie–both smash hits. We were a little scared to take this on as the trilogy as it has some very fervent fans. But the Margos are as fearless as a tribute from District 12 so we grab our bow & arrow and take aim at each work of art.

What are the differences between the two? Which did the Margos like better? Click the link below to find out.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The popularity of the trilogy
  • The casting of all of the leads
  • How Suzanne Collins adapted her book to screen
  • Why dystopian novels are all the rage
  • Our favorite scenes from the book and how well the movie captured them.
