The New Hunger product reviews

Julie Grigio drives with her parents through the crumbling wastelands of America - a nightmarish family road trip in search of a new home.

A few hundred miles away, Nora Greene finds herself the reluctant, terrified guardian of her younger brother when her parents abandon them in the not-quite-empty ruins of Seattle.

In the darkness of a forest, a dead man in a red tie opens his eyes. With no memory of who or what he is, 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...

Two warped families and a lonely monster. Unknown to any of them, their paths are set to cross in a startling encounter that will change the course of their lives - or deaths - forever.

I LOVED the movie Warm Bodies and have watched it several times so was very excited to have the chance to review The New Hunger. Being the prequel to Warm Bodies I was expecting great things and was looking forward to finding out where the beloved characters from Warm Bodies came from. I was also looking forward to find out how the world was destroyed and the Zombies came about as Warm Bodies start several years after the first zombie. I hate to say it delivered none of that for me and I was very disappointed.

The New Hunger follows three different stories, that of Julie (A main character in Warm Bodies) who is on a journey with her parents to find a new home after their town is overran. Julie's story is set in the family car as they travel to safe zones they have heard about. Julie's story tells a little about her old life and the life she now finds herself living.

Nora, who finds herself suddenly responsible for her 6 year old brother. The two of them were left by their parents to fend for themselves when the world went crazy. Now they are wandering mindlessly around trying to find a safe haven, hoping they survive each day. Halfway through the book Nora and her brother start getting followed by a zombie- he doesn't seem to want to hurt them he just stands back and watches.

The final story told throughout the book is that of a man who wakes up in the middle of a forest. He slowly learns how to walk, move and think again. He also has to learn how to satisfy his hunger.

While the book is readable it is a little confusing at times as it moves from one persons story to another. At the end all three stories collide as their paths all cross. I did enjoy the story even though it was nothing like I expected, it was a book that is easy to put down as you don't get lost into the pages very easy. It felt very disconnected to the Warm Bodies story, if it hadn't of been advertised so much as the prequel to the hit movie I may not of been quite so disappointed.

Violating the privacy of a diary is something Jamie would never do unless she was absolutely certain that she wanted to do it. And when she does, she learns that, deep down, everyone is exactly the same. Dumb.
