They’ll laugh at you when you fall But will come and pick you up before you can even call. They’ll make a face at your dressing sense But will still like your pics on Instagram.
They’ll fight with you over something trivial But will later thump you hard on the back and say it’s forgotten. They’ll appear to be happy when you come top of the class But inside, with jealousy their heart will split in half.
They’ll call you names behind your back But will punch anyone else who even dares to call you mad. They’ll act really cool around you as if they don’t care But in your absence, they’ll feel like a part of them isn’t there.
They’ll finish up your tiffin when you’re not looking But will save a piece of their dessert to your liking. They’ll use your pen even when you only have one But will let you copy their notes later (reluctantly) so you can learn.
They’ll punch you extra hard on your birthday But will give you a big hug and make your day. They’ll ravenously eat the biggest piece of the cake But they’ll also be the one who clap the loudest.
They’ll read this poem and probably laugh, If you haven’t guessed yet, they’re like your second half, Your silly, best friend(s), of course, And all of mine too, to whom I dedicate this poem.

Hey Guys!! Today I am doing a review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by SuzanneCollins. This is the prequel to The Hunger Games trilogy and the protagonist is CoriolanusSnow (doesn’t it feel odd to call him “protagonist”?). I just bought this book because of the cover and it took me around 20+ days to finish it. I was relieved to finish it as it took me a long time to do so.
Synopsis: Snow is an 18 year old who is really poor. He gets to mentor a girl (16 year old maybe) from District 12 in the 10th Hunger Games which he thinks is humiliating. Her name is LucyGray Baird and she captures the audience by her singing at the reaping. So then we see him grow to care for her and trying hard to make her win the Games. They grow a deep friendship and the story continues.
Thoughts: The writing was quite better than the original series. But that made it bad. The book is written in 3rd person and it took me a while to get used to that. In my opinion, the pages were filled with Snow thinking. Man, that character thought a lot! It wasn’t exciting being in his perspective. The entire story was exaggerated. Eachandeverything that happened was exaggerated and the story seems to be stretching on and on with nothing really happening. We got a lot of detail about things that were totally unnecessary.
In simple words, I mean it was boring. I had never skipped entirepages in a book before but that’s precisely what I had to do. I skipped quite a few pages (don’t worry, not that many) as I finally got tired of everything and I was still able to get a fair idea as to what was happening. This novel was tiring and really lacked enthusiasm.
Look, it wasn’t that bad, but it was definitely not good.
Characters: I didn’t really like any of the characters that much, they didn’t seem to make a lot of impact upon me. Except of Coriolanus, whose villainous way of thinking shocked me from head to foot.
Comparing with the Original Trilogy: I still prefer the The Hunger Games trilogy to this book. The Hunger Games was exciting and had characters that I actually cared for. This one is nothing compared to that. Well, I did have low expectations for this book so it wasn’t a disappointment, yet it wasn’t a surprise. More like a shock!!
What I Actually Enjoyed: The Ending!! The final chapter and the epilogue stunned me so much. It was the point where I hadn’t expected anything to surprise me and then came that ending and I was completely dazed. If I hadn’t known that Snow was a villain in the original trilogy, that ending would’ve just killed me, but as it is, it still got pretty near to that.
Rating: It’s hard to rate this book. But if I try, I could say it had its ups and down. On that basis, I am gonna give this book 2.75/5 stars. Pretty near to 3 stars, I know, but not exactly 3. This rating may change in the future.
That’s it. Thanks for reading. Let me know your thoughts and if you agree or disagree with mine. Ciao!!
