Fast paced action book starring strong and brave female lead character. However does lack emotional depth in various characters including Katniss herself. Although the description and creativity behind the events in the book is very entertaining.


I loved this when I was younger. This is THE book that got me into YA. I think it's great for what it did and how it managed to get so many people into the genre and I think it's a huge phenomenon. Would love to reread it to see my thoughts on it now!


I liked this book, though it took me awhile to finish it. Once we got to the games, they felt really intense which I enjoyed. I don’t know if I’ll read the second book in the series, but I liked this one.
