    I feel absolutely drained by this book Because I was such a big fan of The Hunger Games trilogy, I was determined to finish The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, but doing so took a LOT out of me What a chore this book was I now understand the disappointed and outraged reviews of others who read it first, but what I don t understand is how those people were still able to blast through this in a day or two You guys are far tougher readers than I am.I have to confess that I was initially enthusi I feel absolutely drained by this book Because I was such a big fan of The Hunger Games trilogy, I was determined to finish The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, but doing so took a LOT out of me What a chore this book was I now understand the disappointed and outraged reviews of others who read it first, but what I don t understand is how those people were still able to blast through this in a day or two You guys are far tougher readers than I am.I have to confess that I was initially enthusiastic about this book being told from Coriolanus Snow s perspective I know it put some people off, but one of the few things I lovethan a good villain is a good villain origin story No, I didn t expect to sympathise with him, but could I understand how he d gotten so messed up and evil Well, maybe But I don t think it works For so many reasons, but a major one for me is that this book is so boring So meandering, unfocused, dry There s a lack of urgency and emotion A lack of any connection with the characters outside of Snow, who is so self serving and self pitying that I couldn t even have fun hating him I could not understand what we were reading for I had no real questions that needed answering This book added nothing to the Panem universe.And the romance was just downright unpleasant.The plot takes us back to the 10th Hunger Games, where Coriolanus Snow is assigned as the mentor to the district 12 candidate, Lucy Gray whose songs are the one shining light in this novel Coriolanus sees this as an opportunity to shake himself free of the hardships of the past and improve his social status Lucy s potential victory becomes deeply entwined with Coriolanus s own, and their relationship is a discomfiting mix of romantic feelings and him using her to achieve his own means.But, still, while this is unpleasant, I don t think I am half as bothered by it as I am by how utterly dull the story is I m not so refined as to be above some trashy drama, but that s the thing it s not dramatic It s lifeless and cold 90% of the plot exists inside Snow s head He tells us about the supposed hardships he has had to endure, but we never really feel them And something about his perspective makes every other character he encounters seem dull also A few others noted that this book picks up at the end, which is possibly the only thing that carried me through It does, but I can also say it was far too little and far too late for me I think the only good thing about my lack of connection with this book is that I can safely say I don t even consider this part of the same universe as the original trilogy I can now go forget about it.Facebook Instagram

    Only last 20 pages of this book managed to stir my interest So, is this 1 or 2 stars If I hate read the rest of it Okay, I ll be generous 1.5 stars it is, but there is no way I am rounding this up.The problem with The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is that it doesn t know what it wants to be until the very, very end It meanders here and there, bloated, unfocused, wordy, boring, misguided, treading the same water on and on and on, to the point of tedium Just to get to the climax where Snow Only last 20 pages of this book managed to stir my interest So, is this 1 or 2 stars If I hate read the rest of it Okay, I ll be generous 1.5 stars it is, but there is no way I am rounding this up.The problem with The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is that it doesn t know what it wants to be until the very, very end It meanders here and there, bloated, unfocused, wordy, boring, misguided, treading the same water on and on and on, to the point of tedium Just to get to the climax where Snow needs to decide if he wants to be good and poor and in love or bad and successful I kept waiting for some grand twist or revelation to happen What I got was a tiny splash of excitement after 500 of uninspired blah.There are failures of every type in this novel Snow s evolution is convoluted, drawn out, poorly paced, and entirely too much time is spent on lingering on his sob stories of poverty, school demerits and cabbage soup His inner world is neither explained well nor is it interesting This is not a successful villain origin tale You will never convince me that it is Too many new characters are introduced, but none of them are memorable There is not one person of Haymitch s caliber, or Cinna s, or Effie s There is an attempt to show the dawn and messiness of the early Hunger Games, with all the gore and DYI horror, but it s diluted by the wrong perspective, weird Capitol apologia and a BIG BAD, super boring first game maker villain There is a romance that it totally unbelievable and an incomprehensible joke I literally spent 99% of this book with this expression on my face I wish I were exaggerating None of what was happening made any sense, especially the romance gag I do believe there is a decent story somewhere in this mess of bloated mediocrity, a story that should have been told by Lucy maybe But as is, this is a massive failure of execution The pacing is off, the themes are muddled, there is no passion, there is no urgency, there is no heart, there are no stakes There is, of course, Lucy who was badly underserved And her songs too many Two potential positives totally wasted on this travesty of a novel I am not touching this book ever again, and I am going to try to forget it ever existed A heartbreaking fiasco ____________Not sure I liked this excerpt or the idea of redeeming a monster Still, hope dies last expected this one to happen

    a lot of people are not going to like this book it s weirder and maybe a littlegoofier than the original hunger games it s also muchphilosophical almost part novel part contemplation on nature vs nurture and the base instincts of humanity and it is not a villain origin story like you ve read before if you ve come here looking for a story like the joker where you leave sympathetic to the villain and understanding what moment pushed them to being evil well, you ll likely be very d a lot of people are not going to like this book it s weirder and maybe a littlegoofier than the original hunger games it s also muchphilosophical almost part novel part contemplation on nature vs nurture and the base instincts of humanity and it is not a villain origin story like you ve read before if you ve come here looking for a story like the joker where you leave sympathetic to the villain and understanding what moment pushed them to being evil well, you ll likely be very disappointed but if you, like me, have grown frustrated with the narrative that destructive and horrible white men are just victims of society you might love this one like i do honestly, i think with this work suzanne is subverting and critiquing the entire narrative of the villain origin house of cards could be a much better comparison to this novel than any villain origin story you ve watched or read before.biggest complaint and what kept this from 5 stars for me the pacing is a little off about 75% in, the novel seems to lose a lot of it s bite and just sort of meanders until the end, which is definitely explosive.watch my reading vlog for the ballad of songbirds and snakes
