Protests broke out across the web when casting decisions for the first Hunger Games film were announced (view my Hunger Games: The Blacks post). People didn’t want to believe that blacks could possibly exist for the film adaptation, let alone in the bestselling novel. Well, I wonder how certain folks will feel about the non-white faces that plan to grace their screens for Catching Fire. According to a post from Shadow and Act, take a look at the browner side of things for this November 22nd release:
Two of the women that I traveled with to India completed Catching Fire during our trip. They kept suggesting that I read it, and while it’s on my list, I don’t know if I’m ready to pick it up yet. Unlike them, I read the book AND saw the movie. I was impressed with both, but I just haven’t gotten around to reading the other 2 titles in the series. Who knows, maybe I’ll read them next.
Happy reading, y’all.
