I think it's a good choice. I Am Legend is great from what I've seen and I feel Water for Elephants was one of last year's most under-rated films. I'm not however too thrilled with what I read on RopesofSilicon about the plot of the sequel, which to me sounds very contrived

The second book in Collins's trilogy centers on a special edition of the Hunger Games, which takes place every quarter-century as tributes are "reaped" from the victors of past games. Considering the number of winners from lead character Katniss Everdeen's (Jennifer Lawrence) District 12, I'm sure you can put the rest together.

I won't judge further until I've read it, but my impression was the sequels are more about Katniss leading an uprising then the Games...
