Suzanne Collins always manages to capture my heart, and with this book she just did it again. We learn more about the people and the history of Panem through the eyes of one person, who tries to survive in this terrible and nightmarish world. But this time the person is not a tribute, damned to fight in the Hunger Games, but non other than Katniss Erverdeen’s biggest foe: President Snow, the coldblooded tyrant, who ruled over whole Panem. But how did he become the dictator, who not only tortured and used everything in his arsenal to keep the districts and their inhabitants under control, but also liked to use poison against his rivals and people who tried to oppose him? What had to happen to make a person so evil, or was he maybe always like that? In this book, you’ll find the answer to all of those questions.
