I must own to not being a fan of the very popular Hunger Games series. I liked the first book while I was reading it but it is so cynical that it kind of left a bad taste in my mouth afterwards. 2 and 3 of the books I thought were boring, repetitive and even more cynical especially the way things ended in 3.

However, my friend over at Jasonsmovieblog posted his review so I thought I would share it with all of you. If you are a fan of the series it sounds like something you will enjoy. Follow his blog if you don’t already do so.
