I watched the Hunger Games movie first, and then decided to listen to the trilogy after repeatedly hearing how fantastic it was. The first two books were pretty good, the second I would consider GREAT, but the third really tanked. It left a poor taste in my mouth for the whole series. Katniss, our heroine, pretty much spends the entire book unconscious, in the hospital, or on drugs. There is only one scene that is good in my opinion, and that is near the end, when she makes a split decision to assassinate Coin instead of Snow. That was fantastic. We'll see if the movie can change it to make it tolerable.
