Fandoms collide! In a new interview with the New York Times, Fun. singer Nate Ruess reveals he’s reading The Hunger Games.

He goes on to say that Fun. bassist Nate Harold isn’t a fan of the movie. From the NYT:

I picked up “The Hunger Games” thinking it was written at my regressed reading level. I’ve spent hours reading it, and I’m not even halfway through. Our bass player, whose name is also Nate, ended up reading all three novels and loved them. He was really underwhelmed by the movie. He was upset that they focused more on the killing than the government control, political aspect of it. What’s most appealing to me about the book is that I’m not going to finish it.

We hadn’t thought the film focused less on the government control – that theme seemed evident throughout the film! What do you think?
