Dedicated "Hunger Games" fans will recognize Snow's older cousin, Tigris, who appears towards the end of "Mockingjay" and allows Katniss to hide in her Capitol shop during the rebels' attack on the Capitol. Since the story mostly sticks to the Capitol instead of following a tribute into the Games themselves, some will likely find that it lacks the immediate urgency that makes the original books such compelling page-turners.Even if it's not an essential addition to the "Hunger Games" series, "The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes'" clever exploration of the world and how its perverse forms of entertainment and control came to be are bound to satisfy fans.It may not be a particularly comforting form of escapism, but Collins' uneasy, thought-provoking prequel is absorbing all the same.Like what you see here?
