did not like it

Wow... what a horrible let down. I went from disliking Katniss to a mix of despising her and feeling pity for her. I'm thinking that Ms. Collins intended her to be disliked by the end, but I'm not sure. Katniss for all her whining and saying "Poor me" certainly is a ruthless killer at the same time.

As for the writing? I think Suzanne Collins is a very solid writer and it was easy to stay engrossed in the story.

In the end my rating is more to do with my enjoyment of the book than the writing or story. If this book is intended for the YA crowd, I'm not sure what message it sends. Bad stuff happens. You'll suffer, but maybe things will get better.
