I picked up this book after reading great reviews about it but I was skeptical at first, since it didn't seem like my ‘thing’. One day after getting it, I had finished and I was blown away. “The Hunger Games” is action packed, emotionally driven and you won't be able to put it down. The protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, is a strong, smart and swift heroine but she also has a subtle vunerability that will make you root for her to win.
Listen to the reviews and give this book a try. You won't be disappointed and before you know it, you'll be reaching for “Catching Fire”.
