The Hunger Games kind of flew under our radar, honestly. It's one of those books that have sold a gazillion copies but which nobody we know actually claims to have read. But apparently it's rather a big deal, since the first image of X-Men: First Class's Jennifer Lawrence as the book's protagonist, Katniss, is making a big splash on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. This week's issue also has an extended interview with rising star Lawrence, of whom author Suzanna Collins said the following: "I feel like when [she] said yes the world got lifted off my shoulders."

Oh dear, this is another one of those Atlas Shrugged things, isn't it…?
