Hunger It S Been Three Months Since Everyone Under The Age Of Fifteen Became Trapped In The Bubble Known As The FAYZThree Months Since All The Adults Disappeared GONEFood Ran Out Weeks Ago Everyone Is Starving, But No One Wants To Figure Out A Solution And Each Day, And Kids Are Evolving, Developing Supernatural Abilities That Set Them Apart From The Kids Without Powers Tension Rises And Chaos Is Descending Upon The Town It S The Normal Kids Against The Mutants Each Kid Is Out For Himself, And Even The Good Ones Turn MurderousBut A Larger Problem Looms The Darkness, A Sinister Creature That Has Lived Buried Deep In The Hills, Begins Calling To Some Of The Teens In The FAYZ Calling To Them, Guiding Them, Manipulating ThemThe Darkness Has Awakened And It Is Hungry Fans of the first book will also enjoy this second in a projected series of six While I enjoyed the book, I can t help longing forbooks that stand alone instead of hooking readers into a series that requires a span of years to complete I could forgive that with the Harry Potter series, especially since Harry ages a full year in each book, but it s just annoying when it becomes the norm Don t get me wrong I enjoyed Hunger, but the prospect of waiting another 4 years to find out what happens over the course of a few months is daunting By then will I really care This was a YA dystopian story which followed on from Gone.I felt sorry for Sam in this story, he had so much responsibility and little reward, and the fact that the other kids ignored him instead of helping him must have been frustrating.The storyline in this was mainly about the kids all going hungry as the food ran out, and Sam trying to do something about it We had killer mutant worms in the fields, Caine trying to take over the power plant, and this weird entity called the darkness playing a role too This was an interesting story, but the pace was a bit slow in places The ending to this was okay, and things did seem to be looking up a bit.6.5 out of 10 I will leave a better review after I sleep, it s 1 30am and I just couldn t stop until I had finished Well Now that I ve had time to sleep, given my contacts a chance to thoroughly soak and really given myself a chance to absorb that which I gobbled down last night, I must say that I am completely happy with the fact that I didn t wait until the paperback version came out The hardcover might beexpensive, but it was totally, totally worth it in the end.So Hunger takes place 3 months after the FAYZ came into being Kids are literally starving and no one is helping out Kids are being, well, kids Lazy and waiting for someone to just hand them food on a silver platter.I adore Sam My heart goes completely out to this fictional character As he says during an argument, he s just fifteen and everyone is expecting him to be the dad It s so much pressure and he s so very real because all he wants is pizza and a chance to make out with his girlfriend He s so adult and yet so child like at the same time He doesn t want to make the decisions but everyone keeps coming to him for answers that he doesn t have.And it breaks him.My complete and most utter compliments to Michael Grant The scene with Astrid and Sam in the dark where he finally unloads and breaks down got to me I wanted to reach through the pages and clutch the poor kid to my bosom and tell him it was going to be alright Of course I have no idea if it is going to be alright, but I wanted to give him some sort of assurance that he is not a failure and he s doing the best that he can and that s a very good thing.There was another scene that got to be Like really got to me When they re about to execute Hunter It reminded me of The Handmaid s Tale where the Handmaidens are encouraged to execute by pulling a rope to hang someone The entire basis of that scene was to show just how a crowd will degenerate if they are hungry enough The promise of food is a strong, strong motivator.I have to say that this reminded me of a quote that I read in a Reader s Digest a very long time agoLiterature duplicates the experience of living in a way that nothing else can, drawing you so fully into another life that you temporarily forget you have one of your own That is why you read it, and might even sit up in bed till dawn, throwing your whole tomorrow out of whack, simply to find out what happens to some people you know perfectly well are made upBarbara KingsloverI ran a gauntlet of emotions while reading this book I stayed up far too late I bit my nails I couldn t sit still And that is what made this such an astounding book. Oh my god I just finished reading Hunger , and I devoured all 590 pages in less than 24 hours So I basically just used an entire Sunday to read the book Definetly one of my better Sundays Hunger is about well, it s about a lot of things, but basically it all started in Gone , the first book in the series, when all the people over the age of fourteen dissapeared Just poof Vanished Gone And so, all of the kids at the age of fourteen and younger are left to fend for themselves Not a pretty sight at all There is just so much going on in this novel, I can t wrap my mind around it There s hunger and starvation with food running out There s a fight between kids with powers and kids without them There s torture and mind games There s love and revenge Even eating disorders And worst of all, there s a lurking darkness in the midst of all the horrible drama And the darkness is hungry.If you have to read one book during the entire summer, read Gone Then, right after you re done with Gone, read Hunger Oh wait, I said one book well whatever, just read the series It s amazing, mind blowing, phenomonal, just pure writing at it s best Michael Grant is a huge talent and I m surprised that he s just getting discovered The only bad thing is waiting to see what happens next Now I m hungry for the next book in the series HUNGER is an amazing story because of the realistic characters, the spectacular details put into the setting, and the way it shows the theme of accepting hard responsibilities. Some people may say that this novel is unrealistic, or too built on the theme of finding weakness in others, but it shows taking on responsibility, even if it is unwanted Sam Temple is one of the well crated characters in this book He is a fifteen year old boy who is forced to become a leader of hundreds of kids, after every adult and teen ages fifteen and up in his town disappeared He is overwhelmed with responsibilities like finding a way to feed every kid with food supply decreasing, and protecting people from the upcoming gangs He is like any other teenager in this world Readers can connect to him and eventually, feel what he feels What distinguishes Sam from some other kids in his town are his powers Right before the FAYZ, the time when the adults disappeared, many kids began to discover that they had unnatural powers like no one else Sam s unique power was light Not only could he create his own light but he could fire beams of heated light that could be used as a defense, or a weapon The detail written about the setting and plot of this book is amazing Its like reading a movie There s action, romance, and the threat of life or death The setting is described in a way that makes the reader feel like the action can be happening in their own city or town It is a page turning book that makes you not want the story to end How many people have been given a tough responsibility to handle In this novel, Sam Temple and everyone else is faced with almost too many tasks to fulfill He has to prevent arising gang violence, avoid being killed by his twin brother, This amazingly written novel is praised for its life like characters, the extremely detailed setting, and the theme of accepting difficult responsibilities By the end of the story you will feel what the characters feel and wish there wereof the story to read Everyone at some point in their lives has to take on Everyone has seen, heard about or been through bullying i m tired of this series already and will probably quit this book was almost 600 pages when it should have been much shorter there are paragraphs of repetitious nonsense worse still, this novel lacks a balance of good and evil, justice and mercy, right and wrong mostly, bad things happen over and over again without much good happening and when something positive happens, it does not balance out the previous 560 pages of negativity it is exhausting to read, but not in a literary good way. Things aren t getting any easier in the FAYZ Fall out Alley Youth Zone since the big Thanksgiving Battle against Caine and the other Coates Academy kids In fact, everything seems to be going from bad to worse Sam, the appointed leader of Perdido Beach, is feeling the pressure of all the day to day decisions The biggest problem that everyone is facing is starvation With the fear and confusion that followed the disappearance of everyone 15 and over, the kids that were left did what they wanted including eating what they wanted Nothing was done to preserve food for the future, so meats and vegetables went bad, leaving food in short supply The kids in Perdido Beach and Coates Academy are left eating what canned food is left One day it might be asparagus for breakfast, wax beans for lunch, and hot dog relish for dinner No one is in good spirits and when Caine recovers from his encounter with The Darkness and makes another move for power, things only get worse.Sam is suffering from all the stress, Little Pete s powers are getting scarier every day, some of the kids that haven t developed powers are beginning to start trouble, and important people are switching sides Danger is at its all time high Death seems imminent Michael Grant has produced a very satisfying sequel The tension and excitement in the story is palpable Character development continues to be a strong point The new characters that are introduced add to the plot, but our favorites from GONE continue to play a large role in the story HUNGER is the second book in a six part series Michael Grant is currently working on the third which will be titled LIES HUNGER will be released June 2009, but be sure to read GONE first, you ll need the backstory to really appreciate the sequel. The Gone series is the type of series that has you marking down your calendars waiting for the next installment Both Hunger, and its predecessor, Gone were gripping and fantastic Hunger, while darker than Gone, really dove into deeper topics The cast of the series is diverse in its variety, and you are free to pick your favorites The dialogue, while nothing fantastic, is realistic and easy Same as the writing Yes, the writing has some grammatical mistakes and is far from lyrical, but it serves its purpose Great book that I recommend to all. OkayI need to take a deep breathThis book was overwhelming I never knew what was going to happen All this actionall this battles Jesus, I was always thinking oh please don t die This mutant bugs are just ewwwww The ending was crushing I was like no no no Lana you have to save them view spoiler And Lana How could you You should have been stronger When Dekka asked for her help, I was like Lana is going to help herbut NO, she ran way to the gaiaphagethis thing is gross..and I still don t know what it is exactly hide spoiler
