    Okay, trying this again lost the bio I just spent 30 minutes writing So now it s just going to be incoherent rambling Yes, the earlier draft was also incoherent rambling, but way better I m the co author or author of about 160 books, including the ANIMORPHS series, the GONE series, the BZRK series, the MAGNIFICENT 12 series Mommy, make him stop saying series , the MESSENGER OF FEAR series, and soon well, eventually the SOLDIER GIRL series.The best way to reach me is at Twitter MichaelGrantBks I ll be honest I keep forgetting there s mail here Here s the thing I don t have an assistant or a staff I would, but then I d have to hire someone and train someone and give them stuff to do, and relate to them as a human being, possibly even care about them I m exhausted just thinking about it But if my handle is in the Tweet, I read it And once or twice a week I go on at random times to chat with fans I love my fans, but it s either be honest with you and be my actual self on Twitter, or fob you off on some assistant, and how would that be better I already have my father in law handling email from my ancient website I d rather be harder to write to but really be me, and really talk to you, if that makes sense Honestly, if it was up to me and I had the time we could all just hang out at random Starbucks Or if you re over 21, a pleasant cocktail lounge perhaps At some point there would be ice cream There must always, at some point in the day, be ice cream I also have a personal Facebook page at AuthorMichaelGrant, but that s limited to 5000 friends and apparently I actually have that many Who knew But I leave it public so if I have something to say I ll do it there I hope you ll give my books a try If you don t like one, that s cool, I don t like every book I read, either But maybe give them a try People seem to like them Now, my publishers want me to sell you on my stuff, so I ll do two brags 1 Everything I write is like nothing you ve ever read before in young adult literature I don t copy, I don t imitate, I don t clone 2 I know how to end a series And that s my advertisement Thank you.

    Whilst this book impressed me greatly, as did the first of the series, I found that there were still those little things that majorly irked me, even amid the fast-paced sci-fi and action told in a gripping and imaginative way; it was these little things that again prevented me from awarding the novel the 5 stars it would have otherwise deserved.So what's the problem?I can sum it up in two points:1) Sam is a lame protagonist.2) All the girls are 'cute'.Let me explain.Pointer number one: Sam is on [...]

    The Gone series is the type of series that has you marking down your calendars waiting for the next installment. Both Hunger, and its predecessor, Gone were gripping and fantastic. Hunger, while darker than Gone, really dove into deeper topics. The cast of the series is diverse in its variety, and you are free to pick your favorites. The dialogue, while nothing fantastic, is realistic and easy. Same as the writing. Yes, the writing has some grammatical mistakes and is far from lyrical, but it se [...]

    This was a YA dystopian story which followed on from Gone.I felt sorry for Sam in this story, he had so much responsibility and little reward, and the fact that the other kids ignored him instead of helping him must have been frustrating.The storyline in this was mainly about the kids all going hungry as the food ran out, and Sam trying to do something about it. We had killer mutant worms in the fields, Caine trying to take over the power plant, and this weird entity called ‘the darkness’ pl [...]

    I will leave a better review after I sleep, it's 1:30am and I just couldn't stop until I had finished.********Well. Now that I've had time to sleep, given my contacts a chance to thoroughly soak and really given myself a chance to absorb that which I gobbled down last night, I must say that I am completely happy with the fact that I didn't wait until the paperback version came out. The hardcover might be more expensive, but it was totally, totally worth it in the end.So Hunger takes place 3 mont [...]

    Fans of the first book will also enjoy this second in a projected series of six. While I enjoyed the book, I can't help longing for more books that stand alone instead of hooking readers into a series that requires a span of years to complete. I could forgive that with the Harry Potter series, especially since Harry ages a full year in each book, but it's just annoying when it becomes the norm. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed Hunger, but the prospect of waiting another 4 years to find out what happ [...]

    HUNGER is an amazing story because of the realistic characters, the spectacular details put into the setting, and the way it shows the theme of accepting hard responsibilities Some people may say that this novel is unrealistic, or too built on the theme of finding weakness in others, but it shows taking on responsibility, even if it is unwanted. Sam Temple is one of the well crated characters in this book. He is a fifteen year old boy who is forced to become a leader of hundreds of kids, after e [...]

    Oh my god. I just finished reading "Hunger", and I devoured all 590 pages in less than 24 hours. So I basically just used an entire Sunday to read the book. Definetly one of my better Sundays."Hunger" is about well, it's about a lot of things, but basically it all started in "Gone", the first book in the series, when all the people over the age of fourteen dissapeared. Just poof. Vanished. Gone. And so, all of the kids at the age of fourteen and younger are left to fend for themselves. Not a pre [...]

    i'm tired of this series already and will probably quit. this book was almost 600 pages when it should have been much shorter. there are paragraphs of repetitious nonsense. worse still, this novel lacks a balance of good and evil, justice and mercy, right and wrong. mostly, bad things happen - over and over again - without much good happening. and when something positive happens, it does not balance out the previous 560 pages of negativity. it is exhausting to read, but not in a "literary" good [...]

    Things aren’t getting any easier in the FAYZ (Fall-out Alley Youth Zone) since the big Thanksgiving Battle against Caine and the other Coates Academy kids. In fact, everything seems to be going from bad to worse. Sam, the appointed leader of Perdido Beach, is feeling the pressure of all the day to day decisions. The biggest problem that everyone is facing is starvation. With the fear and confusion that followed the disappearance of everyone 15 and over, the kids that were left did what they wa [...]

    OkayI need to take a deep breathThis book was overwhelming! I never knew what was going to happen!All this actionl this battles! Jesus, I was always thinking oh please don't die!!This mutant bugs are just ewwwww!The ending was crushing I was like no no no Lana you have to save them!(view spoiler)[And Lana! How could you?! You should have been stronger! When Dekka asked for her help, I was like Lana is going to help herbut NO, she ran way to the gaiaphageis thing is gross.d I still don't know wha [...]

    Pretty good! Though not as good as GONE: too many different plots and points of view made this book kind of hectic.Michael Grant is definitely an author with a knack for action-driven stories heavy on suspense and excitement. Gone was a great beginning book for the series: it established the problem (all growups "poof" out and leave kids to fend for themselves) and dealt with the power struggles that ensued between the townies and the dysfunctional delinquents over at Coates. Hunger was therefor [...]

    -- 2017 --Ook bij het herlezen bleef Hunger spannend. Ik houd van de manier waarop Michael Grant een wereld vol diverse en realistische personages weet neer te zetten. Elk personage heeft een goed uitgewerkt achtergrondverhaal en het is fantastisch om ze allemaal beter te leren kennen. Ook de manier waarop nieuwe personages zoals Orsay en Duck aan het verhaal worden toegevoegd voelt heel natuurlijk. En duizend hartjes voor Little Pete natuurlijk! Ik blijf fan van deze boeken!-- 2014 --I really e [...]

    Someone told me that Hunger is not as great as Gone. But man, I think Hunger is waaaay better than Gone. I'm not saying I didn't like Gone but my complain about GONE before was that everything happens so fast and its almost like a blur. For Hunger, the action scenes are sharper and the plot is more solid. Michael Grant did an amazing job creating intense parallel events. There's always a huge thing happening in one place, at the same time on another place and sometimes also in an another differe [...]

    First off, let me say that I am writing this at 3 in the morning. Please forgive any grammar mistakes or lack of coherency.Okay, so this was a reread. I like rereading books that I've enjoyed, and I wanted to reread the first two before reading the next two in the series. Although it may be a while before I get to read those.Anyways.It went a lot slower for me, this time, than the first time. I'm not saying it wasn't gripping, exactly; once I'd start reading it again, I'd get hooked. But when I [...]

    I don't know what it is about these books, but I am officially hooked.Between the mutant powers that kept sprouting up, the evil alien blob who lived underground, and the kids cooking the family petsI just couldn't put it down!Every time I go to recommend this to a friend, I end up giving away the entire plot, so I'm gonna just shut up.For once.Read it for yourself and decide

    Putting this down for now. I'm just not in the mood to reread this anymore :(

    And this is where the plot diverges from the paths of things like Under the Dome -- where that book lasted only about a week, Hunger jumps ahead three months into their isolated bubble, with no end in sight.Which means depleting resources.Which means the title of this book. The kids are starving, literally dying from starvation unless they can manage to work together and cooperate and rebuild a sustainable society/economy. (Once again, this touches on my love of survival logistics and resource m [...]

    3.5 stars. I thought this was an entertaining read, and coming off a couple heavier reads it was a nice break!There were so many characters and plots going on during this one. I didn't really have a hard time keeping them all in line, I'm more worried about the ratio of meaningful review to crossing the line into a rambling review, but I'm going to try anyways!First off, Astrid and Sam. As for their relationship, I still don't really believe it. This was something I had said for Gone and I still [...]

    Definitely better than the first book, and there are a few things that occurred in this one that made the first book make more sense, relevant characters etc. This book made me feel so frustrated but not in an entirely bad way, just because of how accurately it depicted what would happen if the situation were real. Some of the kids you want to congratulate and others you want to shake so badly to try and get it into their system that if they do that it'll have dire consequences. I love how none [...]

    I think Lana is the best character so far. Very strong personality and strong will. The line " I am Lana Arwen Lazar. My Dad was into comic books, so he named me Lana for Superman's girlfriend Lana Lang. And my mom added Arwen for the elf princess in the Lord of the Rings. And I never, ever do what I'm told" is the best!Brianna has the cutest personality.Diana, a masochist.Caine, a sadist.Caine & Diana, tend to swap places.Drake, plain mean.Kids, swapping sides because of. FOOD?

    Blown away again?! Wow.First Impressions:1) Michael Grant knows how to build the climax and write an ending!2) 590 pages, and I was engaged through most of the book. Woah.3) Heart-wrenching! Emotions overflowed. Anger, frustration, indifference, pride, fear, happiness, desperation. AHHH!!!4) Some of these kids I just want to punch in the face.5) When you think things can't get more over-the-top, Grant throws more weird, crazy stuff in your face.6) Seriously. This was good. Possibly better than t [...]

    4.5 starsThis is easily my favorite of the series so far. Onto book 3!

    4.5 starsReally captivating story, but I liked book number one better. And I guess I wanted more background story about how the Darkness came to be. I hope that I'll get more answers in the sequels. I will continue the series in a short while, just having a break with another book. ^^

    I gave this book 4 and 1/2 Stars! Overall this book was pretty good. It's the sequel to gone and it is centered around this town where one moment adults are there,the next poof, gone! Everyone over the age of 15 just disappears. I mean there are babies, and their parents are gone and most of their siblings!So it is very scary to think that this actually could happen!I gave the first book gone five stars and gave its sequel only four an half stars!But before I tell you what I don't like about the [...]

    "Superpowers don't always make you a superhero."It's been 3 months since all the adults disappeared. Gone.But Perdido Beach has even more major problems. Food is running out, the kids starving, hungry. There are carnivorous worms, nicknamed "zekes", in the fields. All those vegetables unpicked. Will the zekes lead everyone to starvation?Meanwhile, Caine has a plan to lower the morale of Perdido Beach by shutting off the power. But does he have an ulterior motive? And what is the gaiaphage?Hunter [...]

    I really enjoyed this follow-up to Gone. Hunger had just as much excitement, chaos, and action as its predecessor, with a little bit more characterization.I loved how the main character, Sam Temple, evolved in this book. The burden imposed on him by the FAYZ has forced him to grow up prematurely, and it definitely takes a toll on him in Hunger. Despite this, however, Sam still manages to keep himself together enough to deal with all of the issues going on in the FAYZ, including the new problem o [...]

    5 Stars: A solid follow to Gone. I loved it! Couldn't put it down. A thrill and scare rolled into one. A-MAZ-ING!!!!Among some of my favorites. Outstanding literary work. The characters are well developed, interesting. The liked characters are likable and the hated are unlikable. The writing is captivating enough to keep you interested until the end and leave you wanting more. It has a fairly original or uniquely well-developed plot. The pretense and romance were well balanced and done with prop [...]

    Hmmm I thought the book was ok. It definitely starts out with a horrifyingbang though! In the middle however, I felt like giving up (like the characters) mostly because I guess I was frustrated by the characters' failures when fighting against Caine and co. (cause of course, I'm rooting for the characters to succeed) I was thinking how much luck can Drake have to survive so long? *minor spoilers*I felt like I had to plow through the book because absolutely nothing was getting done about 2/3rds o [...]

    Second in the series, this book takes up where the first left off and intensifies the crisis. The book is riveting but may be too intense for younger audiences. Say anyone under 78 I'm not sure what upset me most about this book. The fact that it was never content to have a single crisis ocurring at once, or the way that it calls the thinking reader to question what exactly is right and wrong and good and evil. There used to be a spooky saying that once committed to it, women were the fiercest, [...]
