Getting content/message from HttpResponseMessage

I'm trying to get content of HttpResponseMessage. It should be:

{"message":"Action '' does not exist!","success":false}
, but I don't know, how to get it out of HttpResponseMessage.

HttpClient httpClient = new HttpClient();
HttpResponseMessage response = await httpClient.GetAsync("http://****?action=");
txtBlock.Text = Convert.ToString(response); //wrong!

In this case txtBlock would have value:

StatusCode: 200, ReasonPhrase: 'OK', Version: 1.1, Content: System.Net.Http.StreamContent, Headers:
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Keep-Alive: timeout=15, max=100
Connection: Keep-Alive
Date: Wed, 10 Apr 2013 20:46:37 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.16
Server: (Debian)
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.3.3-7+squeeze14
Content-Length: 55
Content-Type: text/html

You need to call GetResponse().

Stream receiveStream = response.GetResponseStream ();
StreamReader readStream = new StreamReader (receiveStream, Encoding.UTF8);
txtBlock.Text = readStream.ReadToEnd();
