by Suzanne Collins
Got the trilogy on loan from a friend at work and devoured the first book. I found this book to be a very fast read though I wasn't entranced by it. I find the premise of the book to be overdone but I also have read a lot of books where the plot revolves around a group of people chosen one way or another to fight to the death. There were a few nice twists in the book and I am now looking forward to watching the movie just to see the portrayal of the costumes. I started reading the next book and am definitely looking forward to getting into that one more. While I didn't fully appreciate the storyline as plot for this book it already seems to be a nice setup for the rest of the trilogy.
