The book never gets as far as resolving the matter of Piggy, I like to think the fuckers get their just desserts in time.

It may be identikit bullshit, but if you hit it's better than the lottery. Suzanne Collins, the Hunger Games chick, is worth about 65 million. Anne Rice is worth about 50. But the prize goes to J K Rowling, whose estimated net worth is a billion fucking dollars.

To be fair, I enjoyed about 2.5 of the 3 hunger games books. The films aren't that bad either (haven't seen the last one, it's not on Netflix yet). Jennifer Lawrence is always good value.

I never said it wasn't profitable. Shit sells. You know that.

The ending in the books was utter shite though. I'm strongly considering giving the last film a miss in case it's as bad.

I haven't watched or read any of the Hunger Games stories, literally know nothing about them, and so don't get references to them. I'm not interested in them either but I feel like I have to read them so I understand when references to the stories are made.

I guess it depends on what you thought was shite about the end of the books. I liked the book ending and I thought the ending to the movie was terrible, so maybe the movie will be what you're looking for :mrgreen:

Don't bother, the story sort of peetas out at the end.

Speaking as one who spent this page talking about the hunger games and the previous one doing nothing but quoting song titles...

Yes. It's not that serious here, just now.

See that, Rachel? If you had read the books or seen the films, you'd know why this is funny.

I have no children -- that I know of. But if they exist, I can only hope they're as brilliant as I am. If they're brighter, they haven't yet shown up on THIS forum, or somebody please point me to where they're posting, 'cos this thread isn't doing it for me.

Wait. Could you be my long-lost daughter? Or do you actually know who your parents are? In that case, I could not be one of them, because I'm not known to you. In any event, as your father, I would have done right well by you. 'Cos, you know, I don't believe children should be seen and not heard.
