    Dead Hungry is an interesting and entertaining read, to be sure.

    Dead Hungry is an interesting and entertaining read, to be sure. Ghouls do not get enough attention when compared to zombies and vampires, and it was a fine change of pace to see them getting proper treatment.

    Mr. Arata keeps the story engaging and the characters compelling throughout the novel. Could the book have been shortened by about a hundred pages? I believe so. There's so much going on that it comes across as TOO much going on at times. Overall, the arc holds up, even with a few stretches where suspending disbelief might be a bit of a challenge (ie. the feeling that there is lack of societal imperative to deal with things when there should be some major kind of response). My only other criticism lies with the ending. Without spoiling things, the final scene doesn't feel like a true ending, as if the it's just another scene.

    I'd definitely recommend this book to others.
