Had to read the books because of my six grand daughters and to my surprise i enjoyed the books but very violent books for young girls. Did not see the movie at the theater but just watched it on Blue Ray. One of the most true to the book i have seen in many years plus made a even better movie. Not as violent a movie as the book because of the first telling person in the book dealt a lot with the fear in her mind. Good plot. very well acted. well put together as there were few slow spots. Makes you think, could this be the road our country is headed down? Some want our government to run our lives, this is what could happen if it does !!
