I found the beginning of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins a little bit slow going, but once the Games themselves started, I was riveted. The premise of the fall of the United States and the rise of Panem was fascinating. I would enjoy a world-building book that described life in each of the 12 districts and the Capitol, along with the rebellion and the destroyed 13th district, much more than I would more stories about these characters.
