Movie vs. Book: 'The Hunger Games'

Posted: Updated:

It seems all that anyone is talking about lately (and not ONLY in the book world) is the new 'Hunger Games' movie adaptation. Die-hard fans of Suzanne Collins's book were ridiculously excited, as well as non-fans who just wanted an easy way to see what the hype was about.

HuffPost Books Editor, Andrew Losowsky, only read the book and I, Associate Books Editor, only saw the movie. Below, you can see what we thought of them as a whole, and just how similar or different they actually are.
