John Hanlon’s 10 Differences Between the Hunger Games Book and Movie

posted by Nell Minow

My friend John Hanlon launched his new website today with a terrific list of the 10 biggest differences between the Hunger Games book and movie.  Big spoilers alert, but when you know them both, it is both thoughtful and lots of fun.  I actually liked the movie better than the book, partly because instead of the subjective re-telling by Katniss it is an objective and more cinematic version of the story.  I agreed with the decisions about what and where to trim.  And of course the movie benefited tremendously from the performance of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss.
