My rating: A+
I'm not going to come out and do a full review on this. I honestly don't know what to say without posting spoilers, so I'll just say this: Katniss rocks. She seriously is one of the coolest chicks out there and an awesome female narrator. That said, Suzanne Collins is brilliant.
Did the series turn out like I expected? No. Did I still love it? Absolutely. I love this series for so many reasons that I can't even begin to list. I can't wait to see if this does, in fact, get turned into a movie. I also hope so badly that my husband will read it. I think it's a series that appeals to males and females, and for that I love it even more.
That is all.
