Coriolanus Snow, 18, is preparing for his one chance at glory as a coach in the Hunger Games at the start of the tenth annual Hunger Games. He's been assigned the humiliating task of mentoring the lowest of the low tribute from District 12. Their fates are now inseparably connected. This is a book that Suzanne Collins decided to publish, about a decade after the last installment of the Hunger Games, Mockingjay. I was looking forward to reading this book because I was curious as to what else Collins had to add ten years after the ending. Alongside this, I was excited to see how this book would play out since it was about President Snow who was known to be the face of the ruthless Capitol’s dystopian government. I found this book not as exciting as the Hunger Games trilogy as it felt pretty slow and dull at times. However, it was interesting how Suzanne Collins wrote 18-year-old Snow’s character. She didn’t justify any of his actions or outright write him as a villain but instead makes the point that villainy does not emerge out of thin air, and there might not be a single point at which someone becomes evil, it’s just a series of actions that may lead down that path. I would recommend Hunger Games fans to read this book because it was interesting to read more about Snow as well as read the Hunger Games in a different style and tone.
