And speaking of the HUNGER GAMES, I read it over the summer. And loved it, which I wasn't expecting. Dystopia is not really my bag. I like my worlds to be a bit less depressing. That being said, I could not put HG down.
When I finished it, I told Julio (my husband) about it. Dystopia is completely his bag. Every XBox360 game he has is seeped in this theme. And yet, when I described HUNGER GAMES to him, his reaction was this:
J: "Yeah, I'm not going to read that, I've already seen the movie."
Me: "The movie hasn't come out yet."
J: "Yes, it has, it's called Tekken."
Then, he proceeds to download the trailer on YouTube for me.
Me: "You are such a knucklehead. Sometimes, I can't figure out how we managed to find each other."
Please back me up in pointing out how dissimilar these two things are. For the love of all literary integrity, please.
