The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes book review

In all honesty I loved this book. Though I did not like the main character, Coriolanus Snow (yes the President from The Hunger Games series). This book did give me some insights into why he was so cruel though.

This book made me think of a young man, not much younger than me being 24, and how he had to go through so much in such a short life. He had to make life and death decisions way before he should have had to. He was in his last year of high school (their equivalent) when he got tagged to be a part of the Hunger Games as a mentor.

He met his tribute when he wasn't supposed to, got into some more trouble, just to make her like him. At first she didn't like him and then she eventually changed her mind. She saved him more than once. He made sure she ate, because unlike in the Hunger Games series (64 years later) they didn't give them much to eat, and they put them into a display case of sorts.

It made me imagine what our actual world could turn into. We are heading into it, I bet my life on it. We are probably going to go in the direction they did, try to over throw the government and then end up with something like they had in the books.

So out of 5 stars I give this book a 4/5.
