Sixteen year old Katniss Everdeen steps forth to take her younger sister's place as a tribute in the Hunger Games, it is tantamount to a death sentence, but Katniss' journey of survival is much longer than she could have expected....

Well, really, there is no need to recap the story I think. I suspect that anyone who has not read it has watched it, if you are in that minority who has done neither, I suspect you will still know the story since it such a very famous story now.

This was a re-read for me and I loved it even more than the first time a read it and having seen the movie as well. Great story, well written and a complete page turner. Loved the characters, the descriptions, all of it really. Of the three I find this both them most YA, and the most ageless. Our main character is sixteen, yet is written with maturity and thoughtfulness. The circumstances she finds herself in and her reactions to are compatible with teen fiction but still very satisfying to a adult.

On to the next...
