After hearing and reading quite about how good this book is, I'm glad that it lived up to my expectations. The action is well paced, and I didn't find myself bored at any time. The only thing that annoyed me slightly was Katniss' naivety with regard to Peeta's feelings for her. But then, this seems to be a theme in strong, young, tomboyish female characters in this genre of book.
The conclusion to the games wasn't the let down I thought it might be, even though the revoking of the 'two winners' rule didn't come as a surprise. I think I'm always impressed by an author when their overall storyline is nothing that new, but the book is still very enjoyable and makes you want to keep reading. I'll certainly be wanting to read the other books in the trilogy.
