I am seriously addicted to this series.
I don't know how I am going to fill my time until "Mockingjay" comes out.
Collins does it again. The intensity is high and the story is gripping. Katniss may be one of the best written YA heroine of all times because of how much depth we see from her and how completely 3 dimensional Collins writes her. There's such a very real, human touch to both the characters and the story itself. The writing is also very strong.
It was torture, though, to have to see all the injustices that Katniss and her friends are forced to face. It's always hard to see a care struggle, I suppose.
The only downfall I see is that the first half of the book contains very little dialogue and is mostly exposition. She also breezes through events that I would have liked to have seen more interaction. Though by doing this she does manage to maintain a fast pace. Though it can feel jarring at times.
Regardless, her writing, the depth of the characters and the intensity of the story carry it through so that I didn't want to put the book down.
