I thought it was just okay. The first book is the best one, but it still took me a while to get into it as the story dragged on for so long before any exciting action took place - the actual Hunger Games, in this case. The characters were well crafted, but the books just didn't leave a lasting impression on me. I always have problems with stories that tell me what's happening as opposed to showing me what's happening. When this happens, I feel I'm hearing what author thinks as opposed to what the characters think. I want to know the characters. The story just didn't grab my attention enough.
