"SURVIVOR meets "the Lottery" as the author of the popular Underland Chronicles returns with what promises to be an even better series...Collins has written a compulsively readable blend of science fiction, survival story, unlikely romance, and social commentary."

Reviewer: John Green, (New York Times Book Review)

"[A] brilliantly plotted and perfectly paced new novel...[T]he considerable strength of the novel comes in Collins's convincingly detailed world-building and her memorably complex and fascinating heroine. In fact, by not calling attention to itself, the text disappears in the way a good font does: nothing stands between Katniss and the reader, between Panem and America."

"With clear inspiration from Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" and the Greek tale of Theseus, Collins has created a brilliantly imagined dystopia, where the Capitol is rich and the rest of the country is kept in abject poverty, where the poor battle to the death for the amusement of the rich. Impressive world-building, breathtaking action and clear philosophical concerns make this volume, the beginning of a planned trilogy, as good as THE GIVER and more exciting"

"Collins's characters are completely realistic and sympathetic as they form alliances and friendships in the face of overwhelming odds; the plot is tense, dramatic, and engrossing."
