@tryptophan: I thought the first person was done very well and I can't see The Hunger Games done in third. Also in any book, it's almost a given that the main character is going to survive. First or third, in the The Hunger Games you knew she'd live I mean that's what happens most of the time. Even if she did die, you could still do that first person. I mean, who kills their main character off in the middle of the book?
