I bought the first book, The Hunger Games, after its ratings on Amazon caught my eye. Once I started reading the book, I couldn't put it down--the words every author and editor wants to hear. My world fell away, and I was completely engrossed in the dystopian world Suzanne Collins skillfully created.
Catniss Everdeen is a strong, courageous heroine, a well rounded character that is immediately sympathetic. The author did a superb job of developing the characters and plot, dropping me-heart racing- dead center into her shoes. It's surprising. It's exciting. It's horrifying. And yes, in the midst of all that, it's even romantic.
Catniss Everdeen is one kick-a$$ chick. Plus, I love her name-in spite of what Stephen King says about it!
