The Hunger Games  - Suzanne  Collins

So not worth the hype.  At 50 pages in I kept wondering when is this going to get good.   Maybe I'm missing something but this was not what I had expected.  It didn't help that co-workers who had seen the movie were shocked that I wasn't in love with the book.  Katniss as a strong female character...not a chance.  She's just as wimpy as Bella Swan.  The writing is as bad as the Twilight series too.  

I liken my reaction to the book with this GameFly commercial, although my tantrum was just knocking everything off my desk and dropping a few f-bombs.

All that being said, I know I'll eventually read the other two books in the series but that's because I'm a glutton for punishment.  Plus I want to know if I have figured out how the series ends.
