Summary from Goodreads;
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.
4.5 stars, really enjoyed it and I might recommend it to some.
I really enjoyed this book considering I had to trudge through the first book, Gone. The titles totally make sense in this series since in this book, Hunger the food in the FAYZ has been quickly been eaten away and the kids are left to eat cabbage and other sorts of foods left in the fields.The pacing picked up a lot since the first book. The first book sort of dragged but the series gets better, promise. Starting from the first few pages, Hunger had action all throughout the novel. I loved it!
You got to know the characters more and see how they've changed since the beginning of the series. More characters get involved and pieces slowly start make sense as they're pieced together. Michael Grant has the ability to give you an inside on what everyone is thinking but also shock you at the same time. For example, there were some events that happened and I was shocked but the characters were clueless even after I pieced the pieces together. I can't wait to get to the next book in the series, Lies and find out more about FAYZ and the characters. If you haven't read any of these books, I suggest you pick them up and read them.
Trailer: Woah, check out the effects! Brilliant work!

  2. I didn't like it that much :/ everything seemed a little too far fetched :/ Maybe it's just the genre isn't for me? Who knows!
