My Feelings:

It's been three months since everyone under the age of fifteen became trapped in the bubble known as the FAYZ. Things have only gotten worse. Food is running out, and each day more kids are developing supernatural abilities. Soon tension rises between those with powers and those without, and when an unspeakable tragedy occurs, chaos erupts. It's the normals against the mutants, and the battle promises to turn bloody.

But something more dangerous lurks. A sinister creature known as the Darkness has begun to call to the survivors in the FAYZ. It needs their powers to sustain its own. When the Darkness calls, someone will answer -- with deadly results.

My Review:
Let me start by saying that if you are on a diet or cannot eat anything sweet at all, but still wants too, this book is not for you. Every time they mentioned that they didn’t have food, because the kids ate all the chocolate bars and the crunchy stuff, my stomach went FOOD. Yeah, I gained at least a few pounds while reading this book. Okay, I’m only joking, but I swear it felt that way.

Hunger is a great second book in the Gone series. The characters are truly growing and developing and some are beginning to be my favourites. I still like Sam, but Astrid on the other hand is getting on my nerves. She is supposed to be the smart one, the one with the brain, but sometimes she doesn’t make the right choices and it irritated me. And little Pete is getting more powerful and starts to freak me out. Caine has gone mad, but he has Diana, so hopefully that will work out.

I still love the different views in this story and we get to know the secondary characters a lot better. The plot is as the first one awesome. It’s very excited to read and when I started I couldn’t put it down.

If you have read Gone, you should get this one. If you have not? Read my review and please try it! The third book ‘Lies’ has already hit the shelves and I’m enthusiastic that I can tell you I received a copy of it. Looking forward to the third instalment.

I am could all the kids in the entire world be in a bubble? How does it work

Good to know that the characters are developing. I think it spoils a series when the characters become stale, even more so then when its the plot that becomes predictable.

I have't read Gone or this one, but I'm loving the sound of them. I like when the characters grow and mature with each book and you can actually see a progression. Thanks so much for this fantastic review!

I know what you mean.
Some books should come with a food consumption warning.
Great review!

There are a few books where I've felt like I gained a few pounds while reading, too. LOL

Excellent review! I enjoyed the first installment so I don't know why I haven't picked up the second.

I haven't read Gone... but hmm... this sounds interesting. Luckily I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so I think I can get through this one. :)

I am indeed happy to hear that you love this book! I've both Gone and Hunger on my shelf right now so I think it's about time to push them on top of my TBR list!
