This was one of the rare times that I have read the book before knowing much of anything about the movie. I saw Twilight before reading the books. I saw nearly every Harry Potter movie before I finally read the series. The Hunger Games was slightly different cause the book came in the day before I left to see my sister, so I only read a couple pages before seeing the movie.
It was different going into the movie knowing the entire storyline, however there were enough differences in the movie that it was still full of surprises.
I LOVED the book, it was such a unique story and I will be reading it again very very soon. I am at that point that I can't move on from the book yet because I loved the story so much. The movie I liked as well though not quite as much as book but after I see it a couple more times my opinion may change.
Finally I now have a desire the live in caves with a small community of people, cut off from the world. I think I maybe getting a little jaded of the world and the desire to escape and live in the middle of nowhere with people also wishing to be off the grid. Plus it would not hurt if a couple of the very good looking men from 'The Host' were there as well.
