You've got a point, but the film adaptations are supposed to be another way of telling the story. So it's not exactly 'slaughtering' it or making it look bad, it's just retelling it from another point of view..

Anyway that's just my opinion  ;D

Hope he gets some control, like Suzanne Collins has on the movie adaptation of her book The Hunger Games (she's writing the screenplay)

Me too! Hunger Games is my second favorite after Harry Potter and Percy Jackson! To me Scott's books are tied with Hunger Games because I just started reading them and haven't gotten that far yet! :D

I've only read the uglies series and leviathan! And I can't wait for the Percy Jackson Movie either! It looks really good and by the previews I don't think they strayed too far from the book...
