What book or movie surprised you recently?





Over the holidays I watched The Hunger Games for the first time. I hadn't read the book, so I didn't know what to expect.

I enjoyed it very much. In fact, I stopped by the library the other day to borrow the audio book which (so far) I'm liking even more than the movie. The first person, present tense took me a little by surprise, but I soon got used to it.

I thought present tense was appropriate in HG because we're not supposed to know if Katniss survives. If she's narrating in past tense, there's always that little sliver of realization that she's looking back.

I'm not sure it would make too much difference, at least, not to me. Either way, it's a great book :)
