    Loved them. Read them in 4 days and cried like a baby at the end. Didn't see it happening that way.

    Me too!!

    Actually, oh wonderful moderator powers, could we please have ** spoiler in the heading?

    I totally want to discuss them, and don't want to spoil it for anyone who is waiting for the movies ...

    Though that being said, SHAME ON THEM!!

    Currently reading #1. I reckon I've got some good plot predictions going already. Not sure it's going to hit my button quite the same as Hunger Games did. Movie out soon - Apr 10 so DD1 tells me.

    They are just as excellent as the Hunger Games, and I feel in some ways they are written even better than the Hunger Games were. Much more of a dynamic between older teens having to make adult choices and how those choices affect outcomes and consequences etc.

    Equally readable and enjoyable in my opinion.

    I probably preferred the 1st and 2nd Hunger Games, but preferred the 3rd Divergent book.

    Overall, probably a tie.

    DH *loved* the series. He read Books 1 and 2 in one day each!! Book 3 was longer, but only because he had to do an essay for uni at the same time.

    I just looked them up in our library and someone is over due. D'oh! I'll be keeping an eye out for its return.

    Oooh, thanks for the recommendation. Will add to my Easter reading list.

    TFB, you would probably also like the Matched trilogy too. Apparently there have been whispers of that one being turned into a movie as well.

    I haven't seen it yet but a friend has who said it was good. Not sure if she read the books or not.

    I borrowed the first book from the library and couldnt wait for the second to be returned so went and bought it and in a space of less than a week to finish both first and second books, the third book had 3 reserves at the library (there are 3 copies!) and all the local stores are sold out! Wah!!

    Read all three and saw the movie the next day. I enjoyed the movie, but not sure if I would have enjoyed it without reading the books first.

    I liked it

    There's so many bits and characters cut out (always the way, with movies from books) but quite a few of the cut backs leave me wondering how they're going to tie up other things later - I'll just have to wait and see!

    I thought the actor for Tobias (droooooooooooooool) was spot on, but some of the others just weren't at all in line with the book.

    Not necessarily a problem, but some really weird choices - particularly for Tris and Christina.

    The setting was also really different from what I'd pictured - but I think they introduced us to the setting really well, right at the start of the movie.

    So for someone like me that loved the Hunger Games book 1&2 more than 3 (and all the fan fiction out there) do you think I will love it as much?
