Hello, The New Hunger is one of those books that I can read in a matter of hours. I loved the novel "Warm Bodies" and since this is set before that, you really get a new outlook on our characters and the world they lived in before they became connected. Not only that, but you see the humanity that is within all of them, even the one that isn't 'human'. Then again, what does that really mean? I found the story very moving the second time around and I feel very connected, especially to the "Tall Man" who we learn is R. It's interesting to see the world through the eyes of essentially a juvenile. He was reborn and is slowly learning the way to survive in this apocalyptic world. This book is about humanity as a whole. It's not like the last time you read an apocalypse novel. This time, we see the world ending through the eyes of the monster himself and slowly then we see the light returning to his eyes. This time, we see a scared daughter with a heart that has been twisted too many times then we see her start to hope. This time, we see an older sister torn from her family then we see her start to believe. That is why I love Isaac Marion's books. - Haley

Very good read. Really loved it, but too short for the money.

Though it is listed as being book 1.5 in the Warm Bodies series, you can easily read this one first. There aren't really any spoilers in it. If your copy contains an excerpt from book two though, I would skip reading that until you finish book 1. This novella is about Julie, Nora, and R before Warm Bodies happens. It introduces you to them and where they come from. You get to see Julie travelling across the country with her mom and dad in a vehicle. Nora trekking it across country on foot. And R, you see him come back to "life." Unlike in Warm Bodies, The New Hunger isn't told from R's perspective. It is actually told from a not quite identified narrator. I was kind of bummed out about that at first. I would have at least liked R's perspective told in his voice. I really enjoyed reading a book from the perspective of a zombie, it is very unique and quite creative. Or at least I think so. However, in the end, I am okay with not getting to see inside his mind. It really wouldn't have worked out and the feel of the story wouldn't have come across correctly. The horror of this story actually grows kind of slowly. I was a bit disappointed in it for awhile. However, my impatient patience was rewarded eventually. There is definitely a good creepy factor in The New Hunger. I tend to pass over novellas a lot of the time, though when I have chosen to read them I find myself very rewarded. That is also true in this instance. Maybe I should start reading more of them. I did have one side effect from this that I wasn't expecting. I found myself wanting to reread Warm Bodies. I haven't read it since before it came out (I was lucky enough to get an ARC of it back then, but sadly I don't have it anymore). So be warned, if it has been awhile since you read Warm Bodies you may end up wanting to do a reread. If nothing else, it will get you excited for the new one coming out - The Living. I know I am! This review is based on an eARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Find more of my reviews here: http://readingwithcupcakes.blogspot.com/
