    I doubt the two are related, despite a thematic similarity (I enjoyed The Hunger Games books: I like dystopian fiction, and I very much liked having a protagonist who was not actually all that likeable).

    The Long Walk is high concept, a novel in which not much happens - the characters walk - but character development (and interrelationships) are paramount, and all the while tension is being driven higher and higher simply by the passage of time. Clever, and very well done.

    I don't think the walk would make a very good movie. As Neil said! it's about character development and interrelationships. Those things don 'to translate well to film. On the other hand, Hunger Games has a lot more action. And Catching Fire has things that go boom. Movie goers really like when things go boom.
