Over the weekend I decided to buy into the hype and check out The Hunger Games, the first in the young-adult trilogy that, like any moderately successful book these days, is already getting a movie adaptation and feverish speculation about casting.

I bought the first book on Friday morning. Today, Sunday, I'm 2/3 of the way through the second. So yeah, I'm hooked like everybody else, and obsessed myself with who they might pick to play the heroine Katniss. Hailee Steinfeld and Jennifer Lawrence would be great, but also maybe too easy choices. I'm thinking maybe an unknown deserves it? I probably ought to finish the trilogy before making up my mind-- and at the rate I'm going, that'll be on Tuesday or so. If you've got an opinion tell me about it-- with no spoilers!!-- in the comments.
