W S Krauss, June 19, 2011 (view all comments by W S Krauss)
I wanted to read this because it's something everyone is reading and it sounded interesting in the reviews. I didn't even realize it was YA fiction until I had the book. I was almost instantly absorbed in the story and couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Science Fiction/post-apocalyptic stories. It has some interesting messages to consider. It was done just right, without going over the top or boring the reader with too many details. The main characters were believable and likable, even the minor characters interesting and sometimes funny (Haymitch and Effie). I'm looking forward to the next two books in the trilogy!

Though I didn't expect it, I was drawn in by this simple, raw tale, could not put it down. I can't wait to read the next book, to find out what happens after the games. Courage, resilience, bravado, tenderness mixed with steely resolve....wow, Katniss Everdeen is quite the heroine!
