I tried resisting the "fad", since I really don't like getting into things only because they're "popular", but the more I heard about this book the more I felt as though it really was something I would probably like. So, finally, I had to read it, especially in light of the upcoming movie. It turns out that it really is quite exciting and a fun read. Perhaps not very original (the core story idea dates all the way back to Greek mythology, and has been recycled many times since), but reused in a new way so you don't feel as though you really know the story already. It's a very entertaining book that kept me riveted throughout, and I'll definitely be reading the rest of the trilogy right away. If you like Young Adult fantasy/action/post-apocalyptic fiction, then you'll really enjoy this book, and I highly recommend it.
