I've tried implementing the simplest case of this with a call to Mandrill's API using the method "ping." The response should be pong. Using a valid key, the response seems to work. However, I am having trouble accessing the content of the response.

The code is as follows:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Net.Http.Headers;

namespace MandrillAPI
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            string ping = "https://mandrillapp.com/api/1.0/users/ping.json";
            string key = "?key=123";
            HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
            client.BaseAddress = new Uri(ping);
            HttpResponseMessage response = client.GetAsync(key).Result;

How do I unpack the response from the call? Ultimately, I need to harvest emails from the server using the API, so I'll need to somehow preserve the structure of the json objects so I can access the details of the email.
