Review: Hunger - Michael Grant

  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Paperback: 608 pages
  • Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books; 1 edition (April 6, 2010)

It's been three months since everyone under the age of fifteen became trapped in the bubble known as the FAYZ.

Three months since all the adults disappeared. GONE.

Food ran out weeks ago. Everyone is starving, but no one wants to figure out a solution. And each day, more and more 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 murderous.

But 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 them.

The Darkness has awakened. And it is hungry.

My Thoughts...
I liked Gone, but I liked Hunger a lot more.  this book addressed quite a few of the issues I had from the first book.  Since rationing food really didn't seem to be taken all that seriously at first, and no one wants to harvest the fields everyone is hungry.  Things are getting desperate, and everyone seems to be reaching there breaking point.  It was tough watching Sam struggle to get people motivated to try to help save there own lives.  There are also a few main characters that are driving me nuts, pick a side already!  I am curious to see where this human vs freaks story lines goes.  Also I loved watching Sam and Caine towards the end.  If only they could continue to work together maybe things would get better.  Now the Darkness...I oddly enough hope we see more, I find its attachment to certain people very intriguing.  I give this one 4 stars!


  1. I actually liked Gone better! LOL I found that there were too many villians. At the end of Hunger there are 3 and I'm guessing that they all tie together in the rest of the series but at this point, it was just a bit overwhelming. I really enjoyed Lies though!

  2. I haven't heard of this series but you have definitely caught my attention.

  3. I have read the whole series so far and over the next 2 days will have up my reviews for Lies and Plague. Hope you guys can come back and check them out =o)
