The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1) - Suzanne Collins I really liked The Hunger Games and can't wait to read the next book in the series! Kat is a very well written and believable character. She's struggled and done things most 16 year-old kids haven't needed to think about, which makes her smart and resourceful. Her huge blind spot is emotional - she's closed down her emotions after her father's death and mother's inability to cope with his loss, which makes it hard for her to see how others feel about her. This will make it very interesting to see how she moves forward with her life now that the games are over and she doesn't have to focus solely on survival anymore. What will happen with Peeta? What are Gale's feelings for her - friend, brother or boyfriend? What will happen to her mom and Prim? Will she meet Rue's family in District 11?
