Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

The second novel in the riveting Gone series. Food is running out and the Darkness looms larger. Hunger is a compelling exploration of what happens in a world without adults.

About the Author

Michael Grant is nothing like Mack MacAvoy. He travels all over the globe, he has a bit of a sarcastic streak, and he secretly suffers from belonephobia, a fear of needles. Seriously: Do not invite him to a sewing bee. Or a tattoo parlor. Okay, fine, maybe he's a little like Mack MacAvoy.

Michael is theNew York Times bestselling author of the Gone series and has written a total of 150 books (yes, you read that right: one hundred and fifty). He wrote most of his books with his wife, Katherine Applegate (K.A.), but the action-packed thrillers in the Gone series are all his. As is his newest series, the Magnificent Twelve, in which he delves into his inner (or, some might say, not so inner) child to create Mack, the unlikeliest of heroes.

When Michael isn't busy writing, he likes to travel, stare blankly at the TV, waste hours clicking aimlessly around the internet, listen to rock music and sing along in a nasal voice, complain, and go out to eat.

Life in the FAYZ has settled somewhat, but not for long. As starvation begins to set in, and more and more kids develop mutant powers, the choice is no longer between the group led by Sam and that led by Caine. Instead, trouble is brewing between those with powers (the 'freaks') and those without (the 'normals'). Animals continue to mutate, making food even harder to obtain, and suddenly a new threat emerges - one that poses a threat to both freaks and normals, Perdido Beach and Coates Academy.

The sequel to Michael Grant's popular ya novel Gone, this book is even better than the first. Regardless of age, you will be completely engrossed in the story, unable to avoid turning the page, anxious to know what happens next. This book is definitely worth reading.

Based on the publisher's comment I've read here...it sounds like Stephen King's The Stand for young adults.

Not quite as good as Gone, but that was a hard act to follow up. I think that while Hunger was the main focus of the book, Grant could have expanded on foreshadowing for the rest of the books and building relationships and tensions between a few of the characters. My advice on this one would have to be READ IT, READ IT, READ IT!!!!
