The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will revisit the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games.
On returning to the world of The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins said, 'With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival. The reconstruction period ten years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days—as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet—provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity.'
A rich, darkly intense story about survival and the shadows that haunt our past. This book will draw you in, deep into the lives of Lex and her seven siblings, as they struggle to come to terms with the abuse they suffered at the hands of their mother. Both beautifully, and heart-achingly gut-wrenching, this is a book that will stay with you, long after you turn the final page. - Alyssa (QBD)

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is a very interesting book, I couldn't put it down, there is more cruelty and death compared to the other hunger games books by Suzanne Collins. it took me around 16 or 17 hours to finish reading.
