The Ballad of Songbrids and Snakes by Suzanne Collins – Book Review

A prequel to the Hunger Games trilogy, this tells the story of Coriolanus Snow and how he became the villain. And it’s fascinating. Reading it, I wanted to be on his side. He had a tough time of things, and there was hope that he would go the right way. Yet, of course, he couldn’t come good. He always had to become the evil villain. And that made the reading of this really fascinating… almost like watching a favourite movie and hoping that maybe this time, things will go better. Very clever, and lovely to be back in the world Collins created.
