Reading this book back in spring 2011 was a definite treat. Like everyone, I thought this was overly intense, awesome and jam-packed with edge-of-the-seat action. Despite the lack of character development, the book was unique and especially crazy. It left me awake countless nights thinking of the what-ifs and how painful everything was. I cared so much about this book, the Hunger Games was truly grisly and not so different from events in the current world. Hopefully, Suzanne Collins might write another book but I know it will be as searing and memorable as the HG has been for me.
