Suzanne Collins is an amazing writer! I was practically glued to the book. When Katniss was in the arena, I felt like I was too. And I just LOVE the chemistry between Peeta and Katniss. Prim and Katniss are sisters but Suzanne makes it seem like they are best friends. When I first began reading the book, Katniss and Gale had such a sweet relationship. I love how Katniss goes to desperate measures to keep Rue safe. The graphicness, the feeling and the heart in this book was just amazing. Read the book to see what I mean. BTW the only part I dont like was how the book ended with Katniss and Peeta practically breaking up. Effie and Haymitch were incredibly funny. The hunger games was simply AMAZING!!!
