    Looks great! Pretty in-line with the book. Looks like it’s staying faithful enough. It won’t be The Hunger Games level of mania, but I am expecting some pretty good things from this.

    Jesus, this is young adults being trained for military exercises . . . Ender’s Game has young adults being trained for military exercises . . . Has Hunger games lead to a superhero-like explosion of adapting every book ever made about adolescent soldiers in the future?
