The New Hunger by Isaac Marion

“The end of the world didn’t happen overnight.

After years of societal breakdowns, wars and quakes and rising tides, humanity was already near the edge. Then came a final blow no one could have expected: all the world’s corpses rising up to make more.

Born into this bleak and bloody landscape, twelve-year-old Julie struggles to hold on to hope as she and her parents drive across the wastelands of America, a nightmarish road trip in search of a new home.

Hungry, lost, and scared, sixteen-year-old Nora finds herself her brother’s sole guardian after her parents abandon them in the not-quite-empty ruins of Seattle.

And in the darkness of a forest, a dead man opens his eyes. Who is he? What is he? With no clues beyond a red tie and the letter “R,” he must unravel the grim mystery of his existence—right after he learns how to think, how to walk, and how to satisfy the monster howling in his belly. The New Hunger is a glimpse of the past and a path to an astonishing future…”

~Synopsis from Goodreads 

Wow! I am soooooooo sorry guys! It’s been so long. I’ve just been in a weird writing/ reading slump, but I think I am finally getting over it. I’m going to try this week to catch up on my book reviews and everything this week! Anyway, let’s get to the review!

I read this book because it was quick and it had been on my shelf for over a year. I got it for my 16th birthday with the book Warm Bodies. The New Hunger is a prequel.

I honestly wasn’t expecting much from the book and I think it lived up to those expectations. It explained more of the storyline of Warm Bodies and how the disease came to be.

I ended up giving this book a 2 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed it, but it didn’t blow me away. I recommend the book to middle schoolers because it isn’t gruesome, adult, or anything. It’s very clean.

Until Next Time,
