This book is a page-turner-- I was up late last night finishing it. The author builds suspense well. It is written in present tense, which normally annoys me but did not in this case. There are some questions that I still have that I hope are answered later in the trilogy-- mostly about the government and the origin of the Hunger Games. This book was recommended to me by an 11-year old, and I was a little shocked when she described the plot. It sounded too brutal for someone so young! But I did enjoy it and I can see its appeal for the YA crowd. I'm looking forward to the next one.
