The Hunger Games was far better than I expected! I'm so impressed with it, it's the book exactly, they didn't leave anything important out at all. Ahh! It was amazing!! I cried so, so much. The two friends I was with had never read the books before but they were both absolutely stunned. I reccomend it to anyone, at all. And bytheway, it wasn't that gory at all in my opinion, though they managed to convey the emotions that go with the deaths just as well as the book did.
