Battle Royale or The Hunger Games for TV

The CW is said to be developing a TV version of the Japanese cult film Battle Royal. If you are a fan of the film you may be horrified by the idea of watching  it turned into a TV show. However  some people are eager to watch it, read about it on The LA Times.

The film and even the trailer are quite violent ,definitely not for everyone.

More dystopian novels

There are many dystopian novels out there, if you liked the genre and started with The Hunger Games you may be wondering what to read next.Here is a very interesting list of books if you don't know what to read

I am reading Once the second book of The Eve Trilogy click to see the official website, since I read Eve some time ago I don't remember the characters very well.
This is the problem with trilogies.Don't you think it is annoying having to wait so long and then being unable to remember? I have so many dystopian novels in my head that I get confused with:

  • What happened to the world? Was it a plague?What kind of plague?
  • Are the characters completely human? Half-vampires, half-robots,hybrids?
  • What's the date? (more or less)
  • Who is missing from the first book?
  • Some names are so weird that I don't remember whether they are boys or girls.
  • Where are they going? What do they want to get?
It takes me at least two or three chapters to remember.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

An interesting dystopian story which shows a world divided into five factions and a girl who has to choose.However, her decision is not so easy when she finds out she belongs to none of them.

Which faction are you?
