I sometimes think I'm the only book blogger who hasn't reviewed The Hunger Games. Since so many folks have already done so, I'm not going do a formal review except to say that I liked it (though I would have preferred a more final ending), that my teen daughter (whose book it was) loved it. It is the first book in a trilogy. My daughter can hardly wait to read the rest; I'm somewhat interested. I found it well written, and I grew to care about the characters. If you aren't familiar with the story, the main characters were picked to participate in State-sponsored reality show on steroids, a fight to the death by teens from each of 12 districts.
I read some Amazon reviews in which people said they felt manipulated by the ending, which is clearly a set-up for another book. I agree.
