Borrowed this from a friend. Been meaning to read it for a while - curious about the hoopla surrounding it. Glad I did. A fast-paced adventure story with a bit of sweet, somewhat innocent, teenage romance in it (nothing beyond kissing...) I was pleased that the main character, Katniss Everdeen, is a strong female with brains in her head. Looking forward to reading book #2 in the series to see what happens next!

These books are a great light read. It is best if you start at the beginning of the series and read through, but you can easily start in the middle and still enjoy.
