Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Quatrième de couverture

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.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Grant is an Evil Genius 25 mars 2013

After finishing Gone, by Michael Grant, I was grateful I had already stocked the second book in the series, Hunger, so I could start it right away. These books may seem unnecessarily large, but it is hard to put them down, and you find yourself flying through them like nothing. By the end I am not quite sure why the story took almost 600 pages to complete, but I know I wasn't bored for one single page.

After the big showdown between Caine and Sam that destroyed a number of buildings in Perdido Beach, things haven't gotten any better. More and more kids are developing supernatural powers, food is becoming more and more scarce, and Caine and the Coates Thugs are becoming more and more desperate. Sam has tried to organize the kids to harvest food from the fields, but between the kids' lack of motivation to do anything but play video games and watch movies and the terrifying worm mutations in the fields that can devour a kid in less than a minute, the food stays in the fields rotting away.

The food situation isn't the scariest thing facing the kids in the FAYZ, though. The deep, scary darkness in the mine shaft that gave Drake Merwin his whip arm has its grip on both Caine and Lana. Now its hungry and wants Caine to help it. That involves a fuel rod being taken to the mine shaft from the power plant and all the consequences you can imagine. Now Sam is involved in the fight of his life and has to stop Caine and the others from destroying the power plant and all the kids along with it. If only the gaiaphage- the mine shaft creeper- didn't have such a control over the minds of the most powerful kids.

This was a great follow-up to the first book in this proposed six book series. These kids have been left to survive, and some are rising to the occasion and maturing too quickly, but others are just kids. They want their mothers, they want to be taken care of, and they don't understand the concept of taking care of themselves. Most importantly, they can't imagine having to work in order to eat- especially when Sam, Astrid, Edilio and the others have worked so hard to keep them fed. They are just kids, and they act like they are just kids.

The best part of this book is that it gives kids a chance to really see how they would react to a situation like this. Some of the other dystopias and PA young adult fiction out there makes it a bit difficult for kids to imagine themselves in a similar situation, but the Gone novels give them a chance to figure out which kid they would be. Would they be a leader like Sam, a thinker like Astrid, a right-hand man like Edilio, or an opportunist like Quinn? Would they get up and go pick cabbages instead of playing their PS3 or Wii's? Would they be controlling like Caine, logical like Diana, or terrifying and monstrous like Drake? How would they feel if they developed powers and their friends didn't, or vice versa? This book is filled with questions that make for incredible comparisons and discussions. And it will leave you craving more. I have already started the third book, Lies, and am disappointed to wait months for the fourth book to be released!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I am reading this along with my son and it has been a good experience. 17 juillet 2016

This book exceeded my expectations. My son is reading the series. I like how the series delves into the requirements for a sustainable of society. This includes some system of Law & Order, a mechanism by which people can exchange goods and services the development of capital. Inherent motivations and behavioral economics. All of these things are explained in terms that can be understood by the young person in middle school. It is a great way of deconstructing how Society originally formed. There's also a lot of suspenseful components to the plot, so it never gets tiring.

It touches on other important issues such as tolerance, prejudice, fear. Challenges to leadership. Many themes in the book can be used to reflect on events that are happening today.

Dante’s 9 circles… pish-posh! Lord of the Flies... please! Oh my goodness! This book series is amazing in so many ways that you will not fully grasp until you are most of the way through it. What far a reaching and comprehensive look at the human spirit, at civilizations, at capitalism (love you Albert!), at survival, at war and its effects on our young adults, at true grit and character! I read this series along with one of my teens, and he was always slightly ahead of me (by about a book). And no matter how horrified I was he would assure me, “It’s going to get worse.” But how could it?!? And yet every time he was right!!! My depression and hopelessness set in on the third book and I had some trouble pushing through that one (that’s how he got ahead of me). But the 4th book picks up like a freight train and by the end (6th book) I was wishing there were a few more books in the series! What an honest look at the darker side of human nature too. This series does not pretty-up evil like they do in so many books now-a-days. These characters will be with me a long, long time. These books are not essentially “horror” stories… even though you will be truly horrified when you read them. They are too true to life for that. Just amazing. Brutal, honest, gritty, engrossing. And the science eventually plays out, if a little light handed… but sufficient for the story line.

Was a little bit concerned when found out this wasn't a trilogy, runs to six books or something and isn't done yet. Actually did think - Gone/Lost - kind of similar titles, and we all know what drivel Lost turned into - too many plotlines and they didn't know where they were going, couldn't tie them up rationally so resorted to the old favourite - everyone's already dead and it was some kind of purgatory. Pretty well the old kid-writing-at-school fall-back 'then I woke up and it was all a dream.'
But no, this book is if anything even more high adrenalin, roars along with hurricane force, completely addictive.
Apart from the strong plotline, thoroughly worked out through different threads which do all seague together most satisfactorily, we have any number of bad guys here: the evil twin with his Achilles heel the beautiful, scornful Diana; the psychopathic sadist Drake Whiphand; the monster gaiaphage lurking and scheming under the earth; plus all the ordinary human nitwits out to wreck the town, starting up would-be purges/pogroms/ hatreds/intolerances between 'Freaks' and 'Normals' - creating internal conflict and looking for someone to blame, and to enhance their own petty power politics, of course, when the real enemies are without not within. In this episode, Sam is overwhelmed by his leadership role, and the township of Perdido Beach is facing starvation. Plus evil twin Caine is planning to seize control by shutting off the power, and the healer Lana has to resist the power of the gaiaphage who is seeking her for its own dark purposes.
The prose is workmanlike but more than equal to the task of presenting believable characters of increasing depth and complexity, and rip-roaring action in a sci-fi Stephen King Tommyknockers sort of way - only didn't like Tommyknockers and love this, think because so much more invested in characters.
Actually find the imagining of this microcosmic world with no adults, and the way in which the kids handle themselves and come to grips with this new reality, pretty well as interesting as the action stuff. Though no doubt the constant threat of horrid monsters popping out here and there adds a seriously dramatic dimension, as does the whole kids with powers thing.
Have read some criticism of Sam's character - that he's the archetypal hero, reads more like fifty than fifteen, too good to be true. And that there aren't enough strong girls in the mix. Well, don't get much spunkier than Brianna or Dekker, but I'm actually just past number four (Plague) now - started this review then couldn't wait and raced on - so opinion might be coloured by subsequent reads. Hope those readers who felt the lack of a Buffy or Katniss are satisfied by now. In any case, there are enough guys in the books who wimp out - Albert's no superhero, nor Quinn, nor Howard - plenty of the main male characters are deeply flawed.
Even Sam. He gets manipulated into taking responsibility - which he hates doing, but hasn't the smarts to see what Astrid's doing - and then is a pathetic organiser when it comes to rationing food, getting people to take on a share of the workload for harvesting (or just about anything else), or making the hard decisions when it comes down to it. He's a crisis boy, not a day to day leader. And then he does crack, big time, under the weight of responsibility.
Hardly an archetypal hero.
Great read, and there are some weightier ideas being explored behind here, too, as will consider in my next review - of Lies.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hunger Book Review 27 décembre 2012
Par KA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book was truly an amazing read. From start to finish I was sitting on the edge of my seat while reading Hunger, the second novel in the Gone series. Grant does an excellent job with providing a detailed description of every event in the plot. He also does an excellent job making those scary, unrealistic animals and ideas such as the kids powers, seem so real and he makes the reader feel as if that animal could jump right out of the page and attack him or her. While the book's chapters jump from Sam's point of view to Astrid's to Caine's to Duck's to Zil's , Grant does an excellent job of differentiating whose point of view the story is being told through. He also makes the chapters flow nicely together so at times in the book one may not even be able to tell that the point of view has shifted to another character until half way through the chapter. Grant also does an excellent job of having the teens keep their child-like innocence throughout the book, and still gives the teens teenage struggles to deal with. Now some readers may not think that is an important part of a book, but when there is a plot like this one, it is important that the readers remember that these kids are ages 14 and under and it makes the actions and ideas and bravery of the characters all the more impressive and almost inspiring. While there are many strong points, there are few minor weak points. A common one that I found to be a little distracting from the book was the hackneyed use of some of the aspects-like Drake's whip hand. While it is important, it was unnecessary to spend a paragraph describing it every time it came up. Also sometimes Grant went to into the violence and the goriness of the book rather than focus on the other events surrounding the scene of violence. But these small weaknesses are completely overshadowed by the outstanding thriller and its intense plot. I would mostly recommend this book to fans of books like the Hunger Games, or readers who enjoy science fiction. And if you are the type of reader who enjoys "chick-flick" books, this may be a far stretch but worth it to see the relationships between characters grow, develop or get destroyed. Also this book is probably appropriate for kids ages 11 and above, considering some of the goriness in this book and some of the more violent actions taken by both the protagonist and antagonist. Overall this book was extremely entertaining, intense and thrilling making this read an enjoyable experience for all who do read it.
