Overview

Obesity and social unrest destroyed the country once known as Nor-America. From its ashes rose the mighty PainEm, the Capitol of which is home to the enlightened few who can eat processed foods and use money.

For everyone else, there's The Hungry Game.

The Hungry Game is an exciting yearly cooking event for tweens and teens, sponsored by the PainEm government and the PainEm Food Channel. Each of PainEm's 12 Areas sends one boy and one girl to cook in fabled Big Kitchen. The winners will have their recipes featured in obnoxious PainEm Food Channel host Guyman Ferry's new book, Guyman's Big Bite Battle Book. The losers will be executed by the Cookblockers.

The Hungry Game follows the adventures of Kantmiss Everclear and her maybe-boyfriend-but-maybe-not-it's-so-confusing-when-you're-a-teenager-in-a-dystopian-nightmare-world Pauladeen Mudlark as they cook it out against an all-star lineup of Young Adult novel contestants, including Parry Hotter, Horseyboy, Edward Sallow and Blaivan der Dorfwood.

Who will win? What shocking twists await the participants? Why not read this spoof novel and find out?

"The Hungry Game" spoofs young adult novels, teenagers, cooking shows, cooking competitions, politics, the obesity epidemic, junk food, social order, and cats. If you have any interest at all in any of those things, you practically have a moral obligation to purchase this book.

    If you take this for exactly what it is, a spoof then you will e

    If you take this for exactly what it is, a spoof then you will enjoy it. Yes there is a lot of repetition in the book but it works for what it is. The story line was so out there, so far fetched it was funny. It's like a B movie in book form. I look forward to more books from this author.
