All I can say like many other people is WOW! The story is mesmerizing and the characters were so rounded. I had many a late night reading these books. Truth be told I actually looked forward to going to bed to READ and that says a lot considering the hot man I lay next to every night. Very high praise indeed!
What an entertaining and captivating series of books. Told in first person present voice the author nails it. You are with Katniss every step of the way, with the author outlining very convincingly her inner struggles, balancing with creative and realistic scene descriptions.
Desmond read this. Did I say read? He devoured in a single gulp and suggested I read it. Thank you Des. But more importantly, thank you Suzanne Collins. You not only write an amazing story but you are an inspiration to aspiring authors.
