May the month of May be ever in your favor! Odds are, if you’re a kid in a Seeing Read book/movie… you won’t make it out alive. That’s just fine in Panem where Jim and Kelly have found some high ground to stand on, weapons of choice in hand. Can the Hunger Games book take on its blockbuster movie twin in hand to hand combat? Can both book and movie win the games if they’re from the same District? Not for all the money in the Capitol.
Jim and Kelly discover that Suzanne Collins workshopped the trauma of her previous job at Nickelodeon into the pages of her beloved trilogy. Her take on child abuse in the media may have had a root somewhere in there, or maybe it’s just the tracker jacker venom speaking. On a lighter (read: blonder) note Jennifer Lawrence brought Katniss Everdeen to the big screen and was devoured by the masses. Did her face lead a revolution or were book readers left with a less violent and emotive version of this YA splash hit? Aim your opinions high and hope you’ll hit your target… it’s only time before HBO max muttations this into another spin off. Nothing a berry cleanse can’t fix!
