If it ain’t broke, leave it alone! The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins was/is a huge literary book and movie success. And now the prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes comes along and ignites the The Hunger Games frenzy once again.
“The Hunger Games” was about an event that punished rebels for rebelling against their “government”. It was a pairing of rebel children from all of the districts against each other in a fight to the death. It concentrates on the stories from the rebel’s point of view.
The Prequel, The Ballard of Songbirds and Snakes takes place much earlier than The Hunger Games and tells the stories from the “government’s” point of view. A lot of the unanswered questions left open in The Hunger Games are answered.
I predict that the prequel will also be a big success and will become a trilogy with more movies too.
Once again, it it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! 🙂
