Yet, the things this largely clueless girl chooses to report lead one to believe that she has future knowledge. As good as the plot, the writing and everything else is, the protagonist Katniss, outshines them all effortlessly. I found them to feel so real though. You want to get excited, I mean, there are serious, emotional things going on! I was really excited when I bought these books.
The beautiful Jennifer Lawrence portrays Katniss perfectly in the movies. I found the books simultaneously compelling and painful and while I read them in what amounts to about 2 days worth of reading, they were incredibly fatiguing to read.
