The Hunger But Mainly Death Games follows Bratniss Everclean, who just might be the only sane person in Slum 12, the garbage dump of the evil nation of Pandumb. But that doesn’t keep her from shortsightedly volunteering for a tournament that, as its name suggests, is a little more about death than it is about food.
However, Bratniss quickly learns that some fates are worse than death…like having to date her fellow competitor (and lifelong stalker) Pita Malarkey. Okay, okay, it’s not worse than DEATH, but it’s still pretty annoying.
Written by two veteran parody authors (hiding behind the name of their main character for fear of reprisals from readers angry for all the laughter-pee they’ve been subjected to), The Hunger But Mainly Death Games is the perfect gift for anyone who’s going through Hunger Games withdrawal and is ready for a twisted take on their favorite story and characters. It’s also great for the unfortunate teens trapped in real Hunger Games, who could benefit from some levity, assuming there are places to buy books in the arena.
May the odds let there be toilet paper in the arena.
