Having read the book that the movie is based on I can tell you that the film does follow the plot of the book but some things are different, some more glaring then others. Those that have read the book will see right off two things that just do not follow the book at all and the only thing I can think is that they had to change them for time constraints. The first is that the cat, Buttercup, is the wrong color and the other is that the mocking jay broach is found in the black market. The pin was supposed to be give to Katniss by the mayors daughter. There are other inconsistencies but can be forgive a bit due to the scope of things. In reality the book should have been divided up between more then one film but then no one would have understood the first film at all. That is how much content is in the book. Read more...

At first I was apprehensive in reading this book considering all the hype that went along with it and the hype that went along with the Twilight series. I expected it to be another sappy stupid romance about a girl who hates herself and the world. You know how the teens are right now these days, no disrespect to those teens that do have a sense of self and self respect. Suzanne Collins is a genius in the way that she weave the take that she has to tell and does it in such a way that you can not help but be drawn into it and can not get out of the raging torrent until you have finished the book entirely. It is one of those books that will stick with you and have you looking forward to actually reading the next one.
