Hunger Book Review

Hunger Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jul 16, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

The food is running low in the FAYZ, and kids are starving. Meanwhile, the evil darkness is growing strong. Check out Hunger by Michael Grant.

Author: Michael Grant



It’s been a few months since everyone older than 14 disappeared. Now the surf town of Perdido Beach and its surrounding farmland is falling to pieces. With kids running the town, authority is at a minimum, despite the efforts of Sam Templeton.


Relish is a Luxury

The town elected Sam as their leader. But the pressure is getting to him. Kids are seeking help for menial problems, when Sam had way more serious things to worry about. Perdido Beach is running out of food. All the crackers and cookies are long gone, leaving canned asparagus and condiments as the most luxurious meal options. Sam tries to pick the cabbages from a farm. But the field is swarming with mutant worms ready to burrow into the flesh of whoever dares to reach for a cabbage.


Mutants vs. Normals

But starvation is just one of the many problems circulating Perdido Beach. Hunter, one of the mutant kids, accidently kills his friend in front of Zil, one of the normal kids. This single act creates a dangerous rift in the once united town—normals against freaks. Zil and his cronies call themselves the Human Crew. They’re determined to eliminate Hunter and the rest of the so-called “freaks.”


The Gaiaphage

Meanwhile, Sam’s ill-intentioned brother, Caine, wakes up from his two month slumber. The evil darkness called the gaiaphage is lurking in his mind, forcing him to do its bidding. While Caine battles with the darkness, he must keep his authority over Drake—a ruthless boy with a whip-arm who attends to gain power over Caine.


The Bottom Line

Starvation. Cannibalism. Injustice. This book is even more intense than the first book, Gone. Battles between both friends and enemies[/kwlink] ensue, and death lurks on everyone’s doorstep. There isn’t a dull moment in this 590 page novel.


Gone Rating: 5

What Would You Have Given Up For Food?

  • I would have given Jeff all the luxury items.
  • I would have brought Jerri back for rice.
  • Nothing - Stop whining and go kill another pig.
  • Giving up shelter was fair.
