Review Detail

 
Young Adult Fiction
The Hunger Pains: A Parody is one of the most funny books I have ever read. Its a parody starring Kantkiss Neverclean. Everything in it is so stupid which makes it even funnier. Kantkiss is such an idiot and but her muck-ups make for a good reality television show. It was kinda funny how this book was a parody of The Hunger Games, but it went a bit fast and was slightly confusing.

When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the Hunger Games—the second-highest-rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind Extreme Home Makeover—she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her entire life in the telemarketing district’s worst neighborhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simultaneously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk from home, Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz, Pita Malarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on the battlefield but in her own heart . . . which is unfortunately on a battlefield.

The characters are so stupid but very different from The Hunger Games. This book is filled with suspense, foolish romance, gratuitous violence and apathetic adults. The Hunger Pains is a funny story about one girl;s battle for survival and her hope for love. I recommend it to 12+ who just want a good laugh.
