You know, I'm rarely drawn to sci-fi-ish books when hearing them described, but I was talked into reading this one by many good recommendations. And I'm so glad, because it is truly gripping. Katniss is so honest and confused and determined and resourceful and smart. And the relationships in this novel are so complicated and layered--I love that Katniss doesn't even understand her own feelings for, really, any of the other characters.

And the last line is like a punch in the stomach, in a good way.

I really need to not read anything dystopian for a while, though.
