Kurzbeschreibung

The hilarious instant New York Times bestseller, The Hunger Pains is a loving parody of the dystopian YA novel and film, The Hunger Games.

Winning means wealth, fame, and a life of therapy losing means death, but also fame! This is The Hunger Pains.

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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Painful to read, not that funny 30. April 2012
Von soren121 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First, I'm not a diehard Hunger Games fan like some of the other reviewers here. I've read the books, and enjoyed them. I also enjoy parodies, though not this one.

There is no smart or intelligent humor in this book. Basically, what the writers did was take a piece of the plot and completely turn it inside out. Instead of being a coal mining district, District 12 does telemarketing. Instead of Katniss being smart and brave, she is as dim-witted as a sack of bricks and horrifyingly ugly. Initially, these jokes might strike you as sort of funny, and might elicit a small smile. But they often take the joke and just RUN with it, making it painfully unfunny.

I feel like very little effort was put into the book. If I were to imagine the writing process, I'd imagine that they sat in a room, threw ideas at the wall, and every single idea was written into the book. Then they went home for the day, and the book was sent to the publisher.

I would hesitate to even call The Hunger Pains a parody. It doesn't point out comedy in the real books, or do much, if any, commentary. It takes the real plot, and turns it into a mind-numbingly stupid mess.

After about 90 pages, I stopped reading and gave the book back to the friend I borrowed it from. I felt like I deserved a refund, and I didn't even pay for the book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen It was a waste of money. 13. August 2012
Von AJR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If i could rate The Hunger Pains only half a star, i would. I think it was a huge waste of money. I read many reviews saying how hilarious this book is, so i bought it, but to me it was just immature. One minute it is talking about farting, and the next it is a bit inapropriate. i would not recommend this book for kids under 13.

When i read the sample of The Hunger Pains, it was a litte funny, and i got a laugh out of a couple things. But when I bought the book, it was like the writers didn't put any thought into it once they got past the first two chapters. It was like they took each sentence out of the book and replaced a few words with 'fart' or 'poop'. In the book, Kantkiss (Katniss)is so dumb and stupid, its not even funny, like trying to run strait through a fence, thinking a baby was laughing when it was actually suffocating with it's face in a pillow, and not knowing what to do with a shovel she was sent when she was trying to dig a hole with her hands. Also, the games in The Hunger Pains arent even realistic, because Kantkiss gets everything she asks for from her sponsors.

The Hunger Pains is so short, i finished it in about a day and a half. The games themselves only last about 50 or 60 pages.

So, like i said before, The Hunger Pains is immature, not funny, and not worth $10.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great book, but a little inappropriate 6. Mai 2013
Von Sarah Bantilan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Well I got this book because my friend recommended it and I loved it. It is a little inappropriate, like Kantkiss talks about sleeping with Pita and doing sexual with him. So yes, a little inappropriate, but a really good book. I recommend this book who can handle thing like talking about sleeping with people, I don't recommend this for kids 12 and under.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not that funny 12. April 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
While this wasn't horrible it wasn't all that funny either. I got about half way through and was truly bored because it was just more of the same type of humor. I did find the modifications of names, places and events creative and humorous, some more than others and when you first start the book, it is entertaining with this approach and you will recognized the original plot which it sticks to closely. That is definitely a plus for Hunger Games fans and part of the fun of reading this as opposed to other parodies that are fart and poop type of jokes with no plot. This is never offensive in that way. However, some parts are odd and not funny at all. It may also change your way you look at Peta and Gayle. If you're a fan of Peta, you might not like this at all. The problem for me was eventually, the humor became repetitive and while it went along with the story, the jokes were predictable and I lost interest.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good for a few laughs 27. April 2012
Von Jim Vienneau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you enjoyed the Hunger Games, I would highly suggest reading this. It can get a bit stupid at parts but still suceeds in being good for a few laughs.

But why? Was it because I had forgotten her birthday? Or because I didnt return the spices Id borrowed? Maybe it was because I accused her husband of a crime he didnt commit and he was subsequently executed. There is no way to know for sure. Whatever it was, Sue is still angry enough to fake my entry into the Hunger Games. It was probably the birthday thing. &quote;
