I’m currently working on a post about the day I spent at the farm yesterday, but it’s evolved into a very long, very picture intense post, so you’re gonna have to wait until a later date for that one. I’m having to do some major editing because, apparently, I was a horrible photographer yesterday. Not that I’m spectacular any other day, but I can definitely improve yesterday’s photos….Somewhat.
I said in one of my earlier posts that I read The Hunger Games series and loved it. Naturally, I can’t wait for the movie to come out even though they never seem to be as good as the books. If you haven’t heard of it, I’ll give you a little bit of background.
The setting for the book is in a post-apocalyptic North America that is now a country called Panem. Panem is divided into 12 districts and ruled by a capital that basically subjects everyone else in the country to slavery and poverty. Due to an uprising in the past against the Capitol, the people now have an annual reminder called The Hunger Games. For these games, 1 boy and 1 girl between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen from each district to compete, pretty much Gladiator-style, against each other in an arena made by the Capitol. These games are televised and watched like a much-loved reality show by people that don’t participate in them. The last boy or girl to survive wins and along with it comes riches and celebrity. But, only one person can win.
There’s much more to the story than that. There’s suspense, action, romance, a LOT of violence (of course), and twists and turns that I didn’t expect. I read all 3 books in a matter of about 5 days. To say I was addicted and obsessed is an understatement. I also couldn’t quit thinking about how I would fare in these games if ever I were to be subjected to them. Not well, folks. Not well. The main character of this book, Katniss, is pretty much everything I wish I could be. I informed the farmer that I needed some skills and I needed them fast.
Moving on to the real point of this post:
Here’s one of the promotional posters for the actual movie.
