I read this trilogy in less than 2 weeks, it was THAT GOOD. I coudn't put these books down. You will find yourself on the edge of dispair while reading and yet excited as a citizen of the Capital is during The Hunger Games. You will fall in love and hate. Suzanne Collins idea alone is the most creative yet imaginable thing I have heard of in a long time. I want this series to continue on forever. I hope this book in implemented in high school reading because it teaches so many valuable leasons. Do yourself or a friend a favour and get this trilogy.
