Again, I'm not sure what it is about this story that has me liking it but feeling it's lacking in something to make me fall in love with it the way so many others have. I think in a lot of ways it's the main character. I don't find Katniss appealing. She spends so much of the book bouncing around the story in reaction to other characters rather than being centered. The book is certainly gritty and full of horrors with enough excitement to keep the reader going for the next book, that probably comes down to once again a feeling of a sudden end with no real resolution.
