Hunger by Melvin Burgess

When Beth wakes up one morning covered in dirt she puts it down to an extreme case of sleep walking But when reports of a desecrated grave start Review by Beth 3Melvin Burgess is one of my all time favourite authors from reading Junk when I was 10 or 11 I have been hooked on his fantastic style and ability to get through to readers of all ages However Hunger offers something different Hunger moves away from Burgess cutting edge real life novels and moves into supernatural horror and gore territory I loved itHunger is the first release from Hammer the cult horror film brand who have now moved into literature Burgess offers his trademark fast paced novel with a gritty horror edge as our protagonist Beth wakes to find herself covered in bruises dirt and with a mysterious brick under her bed This marks the beginning of entry to a brand new supernatural world packed out with terrifying demons ghouls and vampires The worst bit These creatures are all seemingly invincibleBeth is joined by her elder brother and two friends as she attempts to stave off these dark creatures but nothing is as it seems and there are and stomach turning moments as the novel continues Every time it seems they ve got one up on the terrifying spectres something else seems to go wrong I particularly enjoyed the backstory built up for the supernatural creatures and how they become less superficial demons and strong believable characters making them even scaryBurgess novel is extremely clever it reminds me in parts of a literary version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer although it isn t too vampire centric thankfully as I m not really into vampire stories What s Burgess also manages to write in a style which fits perfectly with the Hammer image with some of the dialogue coming across as a little than cheesyI d be lying if I said Hunger was Burgess best work but it s a uick read with a thrilling plot and all the gore and blood you d expect from Hammer His blunt gritty style fits perfectly into the horror genre and there s believability to the novel which makes it stick in your mind long after finishing it

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 This book had definite promise to start with The suspense was building rapidly as all of the characters were dragged into the one by one as they tried to find a way to stop the demon I thought the premise of Beth as a gateway to the souls of the dead and her deceased Mother standing guard over her soul was interesting but unfortunately the ending let it down massively as it was anticlimactic and felt very rushed
