Read & Download ↠ Hunger AUTHOR Melvin Burgess ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Knows that something is changing within her Something that's filling her with an urgent desperate hunger that demands to be satisfied at any cos DNF I worked up to just over half way page 150 to be exact and gave upEnsuing rant aheadI tried with this one but I could tell within a chapter and a half that I was not going to enjoy it and a few times I wondered if I d make it through the next chapterIt wasn t until halfway through chapter nine that I gave upThere was undeniably potential in this story but it was uickly lost by the characters and the pacingDid this story want to be a possession story A monster story An end of the world storyWhy not all As that s apparently where it was going and boy was it getting there uickly jarringly uicklyI know one of the uotes on the back says A grizzly fast paced novella but there s fast paced and there s this storyline could have been woven throughout the book but we ll get it done in half a chapter such as the plot about Beth s dad knowing and helping her with her issues when she was younger Sure it s mentioned a few times from what I continued reading but I think it would have been cool to reveal these things gradually throughout the storyAs a horror writer though nowhere near as big as this guy is I understand wanting to get to the grit of the story but sometimes you need to take your time or if you do want to make it fast paced at least make it cohesively fast pacedThere were about two moments from what I recall where I had to stop and reread half a page because a thing suddenly happened that I could not follow looking at you scene in the house involving Loius and Coll and all too often something would happen and there d be a nice set up flowing when Suddenly Beth got possessed again or Suddenly a thing happened and I was often than not thinking ugh I just don t care It got a little tiresomeNot to mention that it was so hard to care about any of the charactersBeth was bland and honestly too self involved for me to care about whining about not wanting to be another girl to Ivan then going to sleep with him again after getting drunkColl was just the best friend slash anything the writer needed her to be in that momentLouis was okay just the protective brother and the ChristianIvan was probably my favourite though that isn t saying much but I couldn t understand why he pined for Beth so badlyI guess it s just all those crazy young adult hormones going on thereSo for me personally it s a DNF straight to the charity shop pile for the next sucker
