The biggest opening weekend of a non-sequel ever. And not even during the Summer.
The top four books on Amazon as of 8:30 am, March 28, 2012 (they can change hourly):
#1. The Hunger Games (book 1)
#2. The Hunger Games Trilogy (boxed set)
#3. Catching Fire (book 2)
#4. Mockingjay (book 3)
What makes The Hunger Games so popular?
Here’s a post from Ellen Painter Dollar reflecting on The Hunger Games and Justice. You can buy the ebook from Julie Clawson, The Hunger Games and the Gospel.
I’m still hoping someone writes a book entitled, God Behaving Badly and the Gospel. You know you’re big when that happens.
Half my family has finished the trilogy and I’m battling my younger son right now for reading rights to Mockingjay.
So, why is this story so popular? Thoughts?
