I keep hearing about these books but I am too much of a pussy to try to read them and then find out they're Twilight 2.0.
and thus wasted a good time on reading crap and buying a book.
People compare it to Twilight because it's a female lead. There's a bit of a love story but nothing out of the ordinary and it's not at all a big part of the book (at least the first one). More than Harry Potter but considerably less than Twilight.
...Surely it's more Battle Royale than Harry Potter. You know what with seeming to be a copy with the bare minimum amount of changes made. Like erm changing foreign people to Americans.
I meant it's more like Harry Potter when it comes to the amount of a love story in the book.
But yeah the story is pretty much similar to Battle Royale (I haven't read the book but I've seen the movie). The perspective in The Hunger Games is completely different though.
I like to compare Battle Royale to the ones who invented motion controls and The Hunger Games to the Wii.
The Hunger Games might not have created the premise but surely it's the one who exploited it the best.
