“The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” By Suzanne Collins Review

Ambition will fuel him. Competition will drive him. But power has its price. It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.

This book is probably best typical YA book I’ve read in 2022. And it is easily the best book in the Hunger Games series. It is as well about the most interesting character in this whole series which of course is Coriolanus Snow I personally always liked him from the first time he was introduced to us in the original trilogy.

The beginning of this book was pretty boring because it was mostly about somehow rich kid and his struggles but the more this book kept going the more I’ve personally enjoyed this book. 

I needed to be honest here with you and say that this book didn’t feel like it go in too deep on how President Snow became the corrupt person he was in original Hunger Games trilogy but it defiantly it was the beginning on how and why he was the person he was in the original Hunger Games Trilogy which I pretty much enjoyed. 

The plot was super interesting, enjoyable and it really sucked me into it and I just couldn’t put the book down. Which really made me turn this book into one of my favourite YA books so far. The plot was super engaging and I really had a great time reading this book. 

I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original hunger games trilogy but really this book was the greatest thing ever and it really made the appreciate this whole series much more than I’ve did.  

The writing style was a typical YA genre writing style but really it made an amazing mix with the plot and the rest of this book. The writing style was super easy but still enjoyable and really I wish that the original trilogy was like this one. 

The almost all characters were amazing here, there were a few character which were a pain in the ass.  But still these characters we’re very few so I can overlook it and really enjoy the characters which were amazing and brilliant. 

I personally could relate a lot with Coriolanus Snow which really made me give this book more points.

I Give This Book 4 / 5
