The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is about Coriolanus Snow (yes, that President Snow) and his participation in the 10th Hunger Games as a student mentor. Snow and his cousin Tigris, who are both orphans, scrape by with their grandmother in their bare apartment in the Capital. When the 10th Hunger Games comes around, top students are offered, for the first time, to work as mentors to the tributes; a chance at a full ride scholarship to the elite university is also in it for the winner. Even though they lost everything in District 13, Coriolanus must keep up appearances and do everything he can to win. When he first ends up with the girl tribute from District 12, he's less than thrilled, but Lucy Gray Baird will soon turn his life in all kinds of directions as they fight to survive.

So I'm trying to find out where to begin. I know this book is getting such mixed reviews. When I first found out this book would be about Snow, I'll admit, it got me curious. How did he become the way he was in the Hunger Games trilogy? Welp, I sure found out just how self-absorbed, controlling, and cruel I already knew he was. I just got to see where it all kind of started. I already knew he was a villain, so I knew I wasn't going to like him by the end of the book regardless. It doesn't mean I couldn't follow his story. I liked reading about his past and making the connections.

The relationship (and that's if you can even call it that) with Lucy Gray was odd. His idea of love was not it. I'm going to leave it at that because I don't want to ruin anything else.

I did adore Lucy Gray. I rooted for Coriolanus more for her sake than for his. Her personality as a flirt caught me up and I wanted her to live and get back to the Covet. I loved her songs that make her connected to The Hunger Games trilogy.

I also liked seeing another version of Panem and learning more history about it. Honestly, I would love to have a history book just on Panem because it's just so interesting to me.

The book takes place in a time span of roughly two months. The book is long, but it covers so much that goes on. I don't see anything being able to be taken out without ruining the story. It's slow but I was never bored with it.

There's not a redemption arc for Snow. As I said, we already know how he ends up, but it doesn't mean I wasn't filled with slight anxiety as I turned the pages to see what happens. This book gives you more understanding, which, in a way, is more philosophical - Coriolanus has a lot to think about on the reasoning of humanity, war, conflict, and control. You get to see into his mind and observe just how it works. It's both scary and fascinating at the same time. Suzanne Collins has an excellent prose writing ability.

I know this book isn't going to be for everybody. The fact that is mostly psychological and philosophical is something that will divide people. But, I think if you loved and enjoyed the original trilogy, you'll enjoy this novel. It really makes you reflect on meaningful and difficult topics. There's a lot to talk about after. ( )

The Highly anticipated next book by Suzanne Collins? Or the prequal nobody asked for? Like most people I absolutely loved the Hunger Games when they came out. Although I have to be honest, I did kind of lost my focus around book 3 at the time. Having read the original trilogy I was looking forward to seeing what this author had in store for this world.

In this book we follow Coriolanus Snow, Future president of Panem. Only in this book we follow him in his teen year. Long before he becomes president. It’s the tenth annual Hunger Games and this year they are introducing the mentors as part of the games. Coriolanus gets chosen to become one and we follow him as he navigates his school, mentor and love life.

I was really looking forward to this book. I knew Suzanne Collins could write a good book so I had high hopes. Seeing people online being disappointed in the discovery that Coriolanus would be the mean character wasn’t a concern I had. I was pretty confident that the author would be able to write a good story how this antagonist came to be. I have to say I’m kind of disappointed where the book went halfway through.
Let me start with the good bits. I really liked the worldbuilding. I had no problem imagining the different surroundings and places where the story took place. I really liked that we got to see more of the Capital from a different inside perspective. The way that this story took place right after the war was also a really cool setup. The fact that they were still trying to figure out how the Hunger Games should be played and what it would take to make them “work” was quite interesting.
And now for the bad bits. I hated Coriolanus. Although I can see how we are supposed to hate him I couldn’t find one bit charming or even remotely relatable. Also, can I just say that I absolutely hate that I had to read the name coriolANUS like 500 times? The way he starts of as a teenager living in poor conditions to becoming what he becomes at the end of the book wasn’t as interesting because you already know the outcome. The book also had a very weird setup in my opinion. I feel like the three parts this book had would be better if they would be shuffled and rearranged. Which is a weird thing to say. The way how part 3 was written made it feel like more of a setup for a whole different story. Also, the chapters had such “cliffhangers” that after a while you kind of get used to them cause after reading “and then, a bomb went off” you can’t really care at all anymore. For it being such a mixed bag, I have to say that I can’t give it more than 3 stars. It being more of a 2,5 than a 3 tbh.

If you want to read a good dystopian I would recommend you stick with the original trilogy and don’t pick up this book.

I don’t really know how to feel about this book. I feel like I had such high hopes for this book after the reading the trilogy as a teenager - but it failed to impress me. I pushed myself to finish this book, thinking that it might get better but I was pretty uninterested in it and the ending was a bit disappointing. I get that you can’t please everyone but seeing that it’s not just me that was a little disappointed did make me feel better. So overal, it was okay, but nothing special ( )

The prose was much smoother and more refined from The Hunger Games which was a pleasant surprise. I haven't read anything from Collins since The Hunger Games's ending and it was nice to see her evolution as a writer, on top of an intriguing backstory to President Snow. His upbringing, containing a very twisted version of the games shows quite evidently how the world we read in he original series came to be. I can't say I enjoyed his twisted POV, but it was certainly fascinating to experience, and the 3 parts being broken into his experience with his 'friends', his experience with the 10th Hunger Games, and his experience in the districts ~50 years before Katniss was fantastic character building and world building by Collins.

This review was originally posted on Once Upon a Chapter

Who isn't reading The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins right now? I read it because it filled a prompt for my TBR Monopoly and I was very curious if lightning strikes twice. I'm sad to report that it didn't for me.

I was in love with this concept. It's 10 years after the end of the war and people are starting to heal....which means forgiving and if not necessarily forgetting. There are some in the Capital who cannot stand the thought of moving on. No one is interested in the games and the message that the Capital rules all is not being received in the Districts.

That's where Corolinus Snow and the rest of the seniors in his class step in. It's their job to mentor the tributes and make the 10th anniversary something to remember.

I thought the premise was great but man was this book is a lot of pages for what didn't seem like much of a story. If I had never read The Hunger Games and started this book first I would have given up. I think it's an interesting addition for fans but really could have been about 100 pages shorter. I really did like learning about the changes and everything that happened back then and I loved the new characters. It wasn't enough though.

I could have gone without reading The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins but with the audiobook that I borrowed from the library it only took 2 days so I'm happy with that. It was a very middle of the road experience for me.
