It's been three months since all the adults disappeared. Gone. Food ran out weeks ago and starvation is imminent. Meanwhile, the normal teens have grown resentful of the kids with powers. And when an unthinkable tragedy occurs, chaos descends upon the town. There is no longer right and wrong. 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.

Food ran out weeks ago and starvation is imminent. Meanwhile, the normal teens have grown resentful of the kids with powers. And when an unthinkable tragedy occurs, chaos descends upon the town. There is no longer right and wrong. 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.

Having not read the first book in the series, GONE, I was thoroughly intrigued about this book.

HUNGER takes place three months after the events of the previous story. The kids are running out of food, gaining powers, and a Darkness is calling to some of the members of The FAYZ.

I enjoyed this story so much that after I read it I promptly ordered the first book. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival so that I can see how this all started.

I thought the story flowed very well, was well-written, and the characters pulled me in from beginning to end. I literally had trouble putting the book down once I started reading.

HUNGER can stand alone, but you'll probably want to read the first title in the series, like me, either before or after finishing this one.

You know you're in a world of hurt when even the cabbage bites back... 26 mai 2009
Par H. Bala - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In a blink of an eye all the adults and the youths over 15 vanished from the tiny Californian town of Perdido Beach, leaving behind a desolate post-apocalyptic setting rife with very strange mutations... and stranded children forced to fend for themselves and cope with terrifying challenges. And that is Gone, recapped.

SPOILERS from now on, scattered pretty much all over the place, like landmines.

As HUNGER opens, three months have elapsed since the monumental Thanksgiving showdown with the sinister Coates Academy. But, for the 332 kids of Perdido Beach, things have only gotten worse. In the struggle for day-to-day survival, starvation is tapping on the door. Perdido Beach's inexperienced (and teenaged) administrative heads are at wit's end, and the stress is even getting to School Bus Sam, the town's looked upon hero and savior. It's not only that the children now lack the motivation to work, but potential foods waiting to be harvested, like the horrifying cabbage field, turn out to be very capable of biting back. Then there are these: Wolves who speak. Bats who swim. Worms with teeth and territorial aspirations. Freaky mutations abound.

After months of silence, there's a stirring in the Coates Academy. Caine, the Academy's power-bent telekinetic leader (and Sam's fraternal twin brother), has finally recovered enough to begin scheming again. But Caine's dreams are now haunted by the gaiaphage, that dark presence lurking in the mine shaft. Equally alarming, something new and scary is up with Little Pete, Astrid's severely autistic 5-year-old brother. Little Pete just may be the most powerful mutant around, so it's always disconcerting when he demonstrates his abilities. Suddenly, he's bringing imaginary monsters to life.

Comparisons to LORD OF THE FLIES and the X-Men are, I think, pretty spot on. HUNGER continues the dissolution of civilized veneer in the FAYZ (Fallout Alley Youth Zone) and the ongoing compromising of the characters' morals and ethics. New characters surface with suddenly developed mutant powers, including a forest ranger's daughter who can sneak into people's dreams, a boy who can sink, and a girl who can't seem to die. Grant writes in several crackling action sequences, although, this time, not enough of them to suit me. To further shine up that X-Men parallel, certain of Perdido Beach's non-powered residents begin to feel more and more threatened by (and also jealous of) the mutants. And so bring on the paranoia and the persecution - and can those screams of "Die, mutie!" be far behind? It's interesting to me, though, that of all the mutants in these books, only one person perceives herself a superhero (that would be the happy-go-lucky speedster Brianna, one of my favorite characters and a.k.a. the Breeze).

The main thrusts of the book are Perdido Beach's desperate struggle to keep on keepin' on and the gaiaphage's insiduous influence manifesting itself thru the children. HUNGER, the second in a projected six-book series, shows no sign of letting up, no diminishing at all of pace and energy and plot advancement. Everything that I liked about GONE is here. Michael Grant continues his tear-the-roof-off brand of storytelling, adding more flourishes to his world-building and staying with the good character development. New plot points are introduced, and I'm very curious now to see where Brittney's storyline will go, this book leaving her in a very messed up sitch. Also, we get more background on the part the nuclear facility played in the massive disappearances and the emergence of the FAYZ.

The heart and conscience of the series is still Sam, a huge chunk of the story told thru his perspective. But the burden of keeping the town going is visibly wearing down School Bus Sam. In HUNGER we see him full of doubts and finally quite eager to divest himself of his responsibilities. And so, when it matters most, can he come thru for the children he safeguards?

But while Sam is the featured protagonist, it's still an ensemble cast, and a terrific one. Grant's characters feel complex and believable, believable even given these extraordinary circumstances. Astrid the Genius makes a very likeable heroine, and I wish she'd had a more prominent role (for most of the book, she's pretty much relegated to worrying about Little Pete). Whether or not you like the enterprising Albert, he's an interesting cat and the most forward-looking inhabitant of Perdido Beach, and it's cool watching him trying to scope out the big picture and even re-establish a monetary system. Even the so-called bad guys, Caine and Diana, aren't etched in straight out villainy (the arm-tentacled Drake, though, is irredeemably heinous, never mind that Stephen King seems to favor him). Bullies have become prohibitive good guys, even if Orc is motivated by the reward of beer for his good deeds - and Computer Jack is so wishy-washy that he can't figure out which side he's on. Anyway, things happen. The stakes escalate. There's a desperate, knuckle-gnawing confrontation with the fiendish thing in the mine shaft. By the end, character dynamics will have changed, the status quo shooken up. Not everyone makes it.

This being only the second installment, there are many questions still left looming. We're still waiting to learn just where the rest of the people went. Is Earth waiting beyond the bubble? Or was Perdido Beach translocated to another dimension? What happens to the kids who vanish on their 15th birthday? How important is Little Pete? Michael Grant keeps the pedal to the metal, and I, for one, am pretty psyched and totally hooked into this series. The third volume, which will be titled LIES, cannot come any sooner.

Okay, one gripe: I just don't dig the acronym, the FAYZ. It smacks of Michael Grant trying to be too cute. Other than that - awesomeness!

Another Winner!! 1 juin 2009
Par Lisa A. Richards(alterlisa) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Got my copy of "Hunger" on Friday and couldn't start it right away because I was in the middle of another book. Stayed up and finished the started book so I could start it Saturday morning. It was every bit as exciting as "Gone". I read until my hands were numb from holding the book and then read some more. It keeps you right on the edge of your seat and you can not lay it down. You just have to see what happens next. More and more normals are developing powers as the food is quickly disappearing. Nobody wants to work in the fields to get the vegetables and fruits that are rotting away. And if that's not bad enough once they do get a few kids out there, there are worms that eat right through their shoes into their bodies. Ugh!! And this was a calm day. Wait until Caine decides to take over the power plant. Like I said, it's nonstop action that will not allow you to put this book down. Don't know what I'll read until the next
book in this series comes out.

Astounding follow-up to Gone! 18 février 2013
Par Literary Meanderings - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
*This review may contain spoilers for Gone—book one in this series!*

Hunger picks up about three months after the events of Gone. The kids of Perdido Beach haven't had trouble from the Coates kids, but that doesn't mean life is grand, because bigger problems are beginning to develop. Problem number one is food. There isn't enough left for them to survive on. Sam attempts to put together a group to harvest crops that are lying untouched, ready to eat - but unfortunately, only a handful of people want to help. After one hurdle is passed, yet another arises. Mutated worms dubbed “zekes” have infested the crop fields and make it next to impossible to pick any of the food without deadly consequences. All roads now point to starvation, and hope is dwindling fast.

Meanwhile, at Coates, Caine is hatching a plan; a plan to get back at Sam and his crew. Not only that, but Caine has been overtaken by mind-control and thoughts directly from the Darkness; the Gaiaphage. It's hungry, and if it get's what it needs, things will go from bad to worse. Caine is slowly losing his sanity...

“‘I'm the brains!’ Caine shrieked. ‘I'm the brains! I'm the brains and the power, the true power, the four bar, the one. I am the one. Me! Why do you think the Darkness kept me for three days? Why do you think... Why do you think it's still in my... in my...’
There was an abrupt change in Caine's voice. For a second it was as if he was sobbing, not raging.”

... and the only remedy is to give the Gaiaphage what it wants.

- - -

When it comes to reviewing a book like this one, I am always at a loss. I have so much to say, yet I never know where to begin. There's too much in my brain. I sat on this review for over a month, and I am still lost. This book just floored me. It scrambled my brain completely.

*Beware of spoilers!*

Michael Grant is a master with science fiction. He is a master with all things strange and all things creepy. There were parts of this book that freaked me the hell out. I don't know if it's meant to be a little horror-esque, but for me it totally is. It gave me nightmares. The way he describes the feelings the kids get when they are close to the Gaiaphage is just perfection. I feel it myself! My heart rate picks up, I feel anxious... it's just creepy. But that's the power of this man's writing! It transports you directly into the story. Picturing this world is as easy as breathing. When I read about it, it's right there in front of my eyes. Grant has truly mastered the ability to keep his readers engrossed. So, that's an A++++ for descriptive writing and world-building. I didn't think it could get any better than Gone, but that's definitely untrue.

The same goes for the characters. Not only are we introduced to some wonderful, interesting new characters, but we also get to see the original group morph into different things throughout the story. For example, Sam is all about throwing himself a pity-party for a good portion of the book. He hates being in charge. He's angry, he's conflicted, he's exhausted. He's been put into the role of father and he can barely stand it. Eventually, though, he learns there is only so much he can do. He learns to let go of the things that drag him down. He learns that he doesn't have to shoulder so much burden when those close to him will help. These kids are forced to grow up quickly. They aren't just playing adults now, they have to be them. It's gone from fun to serious in just a couple short months. It's interesting to watch. Sam and Astrid fight like an old married couple. It'd be funny if it weren't so tragic. Astrid has become this buffer of sorts; trying to keep Sam calm and collected so he can handle his duties with as much grace as possible. In this way, she is definitely the Diana to his Caine.

Speaking of. Diana confuses me. One minute I think she is going to veer over to the side of good, but the next it seems she is only out for herself. Even by the end of the story, I still haven't been able to place her. She is somewhat of an enigma to me. Same goes for Caine. He seems sad and mislead more than actually evil. Drake is the evil one, that is clear. I am very curious to see how this all ends up playing out.

As for the rest of them... Jack continues to bounce from side to side. Good, bad, good, bad. Frankly, I don't like this guy. He is too much of a doormat. Then there's Breeze. She is a little cocky.. or, a lot cocky, really, but funny and enjoyable. Dekka is broody and definitely what I consider a strong female character. Duck is a new one. He has some interesting powers. Hunter is also new. He can basically cook things with his hands, which scares the heck out of him, but also comes in handy. There's Orsay; a new girl who has the power to enter the dreams of others. Definitely interesting. Can't wait to learn more about her. Then, most interesting of all, is Brittney. Brittney dies guarding the power plant, or so everyone thinks. Something strange happened to her and we don't quite learn what it is. It's left as the final cliffhanger. She's dead—or at least her body is dead, but her mind remains alive. Even after she is buried, her brain is alive and alert. I am horrified and intrigued by this tidbit and I can't wait to read the next installment to see what unfolds. I mean... wow, just wow. I can't even begin to imagine where Grant is taking this.

Let's talk about the Darkness; the Gaiaphage. We learn a lot more about this elusive thing in this book. We learn how it came to be (or, potentially), what exactly it is, and what it wants. It controls others through a form of mind-control or maybe possession, but seemingly only if they've gotten close enough to it like Lana, Caine, Drake, etc. It also has this strange connection with Little Pete. I don't quite understand what that connection is exactly, but it seems that the Gaiaphage is trying to use Little Pete to bring him to life; to give him a true form which he can use for whatever plans he has for the FAYZ. The whole situation is unbelievable, but in a good way. :)

Not only do we have the conflict with the Coates kids and the Darkness, but there's also a growing issue of Human vs. Freak. A lot of the kids without powers are getting angry and hostile. They think the kids with powers get special treatment, that they are too cocky, think they're better than the regular kids, etc. Sam is forced to put this issue on the back burner to handle the issues with the Darkness and Caine. All too soon, though, the problem is brought to his front doorstep. It's gone from a minor issue to a major one in the span of just a few hours.

Gone was a fast-paced book, but Hunger takes a little more time. It's still fast-paced, but it covers more ground than it's predecessor. The characters become more real; more fleshed out. The moral implications of the situation in the FAYZ become starkly apparent. The kids end up doing things they'd never have otherwise considered. For most of them it's a heartbreak, but for others it ends up a revelation of their darker side. People are born of two natures: good and evil. This is a prime example of the fact that the side which you choose to nurture defines the person you become. Hunger is a showcase of humanity at it's worst and at it's best. Grant hands it all out at the perfect pace. Not too fast, not too slow. He takes his time with the details, but keeps everything very suspenseful in that special way of his. :) I promise it'll be quite hard to take a break from this book!

Small note, but I love how Grant has his chapters counting down to something. This is quite the way to suspend your readers! lol I just want to skip ahead and read the ending at every chapter! I hope this continues throughout the series. It's a great detail.

Overall, this book was everything I expected and more. Grant has built up his characters and their world amazingly. He's given us a glimpse at what it would be like if kids ruled the world. It'd scary, sad, tragic, funny, hopeful, and surprising. This book is paced to perfection. The slow build-up of suspense is fantastic, and the climax wonderful. Grant left just enough of a cliffhanger to bring you right back to the next book. Although, for me personally, I wouldn't have needed it. This series has me by the proverbial balls, frankly. I am definitely moving on to book three very soon! I recommend this series to everyone! Old, young, boys, girls. I honestly believe this series is one that anyone could enjoy. It's clean and appropriate for middle-grade readers, but the writing and the plot are so startlingly impressive that any adult would enjoy it as well. Read it! You have to! :)

I AM HUNGRY FOR THE NEXT BOOK!!! 2 janvier 2013
Par Jon (Scott Reads It!) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Hunger is the sequel to Michael Grant's Gone and in my opinion Hunger was a stronger novel than Gone. Many of the problems that I had with Gone were nonexistent in Hunger. I am really glad that I read Hunger and that I didn't drop the Gone series.

Hunger starts with Sam, Astrid and the other FAYZ kids dealing with food shortages hence the title Hunger. Sam has to deal with all the pains of being a leader of the FAYZ which means he has to deal with all the problems between the kids. Barriers start to rise between the kids with powers and the powerless kids. Meanwhile besides dealing with problems in the FAYZ, Sam has to deal with the Darkness, and the Coates Academy kids.

Hunger was a fast-paced and action-paced book that I devoured immediately. Hunger left me hungry for the sequel which I need immediately. Sorry for those terrible puns I couldn't help myself. I enjoyed Hunger more than Gone because I felt more connected to the characters. I liked Sam and Astrid alot more in this book because I felt like they were more developed in this book. Michael Grant's writing style really urges the reader to keep on reading. Even though Hunger is nearly 600 pages, it doesn't feel like 600 pages. Grant is deft at engrossing his readers to the point where a 600 page book feels too short. Frankly I didn't want Hunger to end at all because it was that good. Rarely do I read a book that is over 500 pages that I don't complain about the length. Usually books the size of Hunger usually acquire complaints from me that it was slow-paced, long, and dull. I really enjoyed reading Hunger and I really don't have really any problems with Hunger.

Hunger is one of those books that makes you realize that there is some originality left in the Dystopian genre. Hunger proudly stands out in the Dystopian genre which is flooded with generic copy-cat books. Honestly if I didn't have an ARC pile that wasn't sky high I'd probably be at least half way into Lies. Michael Grant really impressed with Hunger and I'm so glad that I took the time to read it.
