Publisher Description

Ambition will fuel him. Competition will drive him. But power has its price.
It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.

The odds are against him. He's been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined - every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute . . . and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.

Decent

I enjoyed the book personally. Although it’s not as popular as the other books. It has a good story and makes you feel emotion for the characters. Although it did get lagging at times it was honestly a good book. I’m not giving it 5 stars because it didn’t go in detail as much as I wanted it to

Not what I Expected

Interesting idea but the plot was too long and things seemed to fit weirdly together.

next biggest screen writer ,

Lagged on/ no character growth

A lot of details was not necessary, and even for a villain to be the main character he should of had at least some character depth/growth into why he becomes a tyrant but no he’s a tyrant through and through which what made the story fall flat to me, but if you don’t mind a character growth kudos to you. The story was pretty decent.
Overall the way he view the world never changed which was a big reason the story didn’t live up to its potential. Hopefully the movie fix the problem.
Enjoy.
