I know I'm not the only fan, so I thought I'd make up a thread, especially with the movie release nearing. (March 2012)
Just finished it. I thought it was really great. I am pondering letting my DD read it.
After I read it I put my FB status as "Dear G-d please let my daughter grow up to be more like Katniss and less like Bella. Amen!" lol
Love your status update! My DD actually read it before I did, and recommended it. She was in 7th grade at the time, I found that to be appropriate age wise.
My DD is in 5th but she is pretty advanced and not freaked out by violence or thrillers (entertainment wise). Our family movie nights consist of Jaws and Alien, lol. Sdaly one fo her friends was reading Twilight and so she started. I am trying really hard to get her to read THG instead. Howvere she is reading Cirque de Freak which I had no idea was a young adults book series.
Sounds like she's mature enough to handle it. I know Collin's wrote it for a bit older than her other series, Gregor and the Overlander, but you certainly know what she is mature enough to read!
Just saw some info about the Soundtrack and I'm very excited about it! Artists like Arcade Fire & The Decemberists, and I really love the Taylor Swift song with the Civil Wars for it.
I finally saw the trailer on the big screen last night, and I'm so ready for this movie already! Hurry up March 23!
