a ballad of songbirds and snakes book review


The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is a prequel to Suzanne Collins' wildly popular Hunger Games trilogy, taking place 64 years before the events of the original series. The book follows a young Coriolanus Snow, who is chosen as a mentor for the 10th Hunger Games.

As a longtime fan of the Hunger Games series, I was excited to delve back into the world Collins had created. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes did not disappoint. The novel gave readers a deeper understanding of the Capitol and its history, as well as the origins of the Hunger Games themselves.

One of the standout aspects of the book was the character development of Coriolanus Snow. In the original series, Snow is portrayed as a ruthless dictator, but in this prequel, we see a more complex and nuanced version of him. We see his struggles and motivations, and how he ultimately becomes the villain we know him to be.

The pacing of the book was excellent, with twists and turns that kept me engaged throughout. The writing was as captivating as ever, with Collins' trademark vivid descriptions and emotional depth.

Overall, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is a must-read for fans of the Hunger Games series. It adds depth and complexity to the world Collins created, and sheds new light on one of the most iconic villains in young adult literature. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thrilling and thought-provoking read.
