What Suzanne Collins did right:
1. She wrote with scary precision and somehow managed to butt out of the way of her own story.
2. She pulled off first person present tense with absolutely zero awkwardness.
3. She crafted a heroine kick-ass enough to hold her own but vulnerable enough to give way to other characters.
4. She created a character as sweet and perfect as Peeta, who is the best YA hero I've read to date - regardless of course, of the fact that I've read very little YA as of yet.
5. She created something as clever as the Hunger Games that was completely irresistible in a really sick kind of way.
6. She introduced her heroine to the Captiol, that was so different from what she was used to and was sensible enough to not have Katniss be fascinated by every second thing, to the point where it could have been annoying.
7. Buttercup. Yep, coz I love cats.
