Hunger by Michael Grant


Book review by: Aoife Doyle

Title: Hunger

Author: Michael Grant

Series: This book is the second book in the β€˜Gone’ series.

Setting: This book is set in a place called Perdido beach in California. Perdido beach is on the coast of California and attracted many surfers before the FAYZ began.

The main characters: the main characters are Sam the leader of the good side and has the ability to shoot burning light from his hands that could kill someone, Caine the leader of the bad side and Sam’s long lost brother and has Telekinesis powers, Astrid is Sam’s girlfriend and a bit of a genius ,Drake is a bad guy who has a whip hand that cuts through your skin leaving ripped up flesh and Diana who is Caine’s girlfriend(sort of) and has the power to power read and see what your power is.

What is the FAYZ: The FAYZ stands for β€˜fallout alley youth zone’. It is a circular dome around the Perdido beach town, the centre of which is the nuclear power plant which may have potentially caused the FAYZ. Kids up to the age of 15 live in this town. The FAYZ consists of only kids as all the adults and kids over 15 β€˜blinked’ out or β€˜left’ when it occurred first. Sam and his brother Caine were the first people not to leave when they turned 15. Many more have stopped themselves from leaving the FAYZ by following instruction from Sam. Some characters develop powers in the FAYZ and use them to fight the good/bad guys.

Why I liked this book: I liked this book because I thought it was very descriptive and had a lot of action in it. It described everyone’s powers very well. It also described the setting very well and I could picture everything very clearly. It was full of action and was a real page turner.

Rating: I would give this book 5 stars out of 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Recommendation: I would recommend this book to people who have an interest in fictional and action books presumably 12 to 15 year olds.
