The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Ugh! This ends on a cliffhanger! LOL … what a way to make you immediately buy the next book — which I did — clever, clever!

What can I say that hasn’t already been said? I had heard so many good things about this book that I was actually a bit leery about the hype. But it really is an excellent read. Collins is a terrific storyteller. The action moves, the characters are interesting, and the world she creates seems to be fully formed in her imagination. I would have like a few more details of setting and minor characters, but then it would have been 500 pages long. Um, wait … that would not be such a bad thing. 🙂

OK, I am hooked and ready for part 2 (after my next book club read).
