Incase what you were wondering what British author E.L. James thought about The Hunger Games, here is your answer…

“I read the first one,” she says, in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It upset me, this society that murders children for sport. Murdering your children is a step too far!” She prefers the two subsequent books “when they stand up and fight back. I don’t think [The Hunger Games] is a great love story at all. It’s all about revolution.”

That doesn’t mean she thinks it’s a bad book, “It’s a ripping yarn,” she says. As we reported, the first book in her Fifty Shades of Grey series is out now on paperback and the other two will be released on April 17th.
