Read in March, 2012

I avoided reading this as long as I could because I loathe dystopias, child abuse, and violence, all of which feature here. Turns out I was right to avoid it. Collins is a good writer: the characters are memorable, the settings well-described, and the structure effective. The whole concept is just appalling, though. It made me nauseous to read, and gave me several nightmares. I wish I had not read it.
