I heard about this and got advised to read it a few times. I put if off, and off until I was bored and went to library. I saw it and decided its now or never. Well, I HAD to buy the next two to find out what happened because I couldn't wait for to get it in. My friend read the first in 12 hours, the 'Catching Fire' (2nd Book) in 24 and 'Mockingjay' (3rd book) in just 8 hours.)
Its such a wonderful read, it keeps you gripped, puzzled and entertained through out. Some of the killings are quiet graphic, without been disturbing which is what books these days are lacking. The fight for survival has you on the edge of your seat throughout.
I believe this will be almost as big as Harry Potter and as big as, if not bigger then, Twilight.
Don't hold back the reading of this, click buy and get reading. You won't regret it.
