Ryan Casey is a young author who thankfully doesn't write this kind of book. The Hunger reminds me of another of Ryan's books, What We Saw. In both books I genuinely cared about the characters. In both I wasn't sure how they would end. And, something that's very rare, in both of them I felt like I was taking part in the book; I felt like I was "there" where the book was happening and that I knew the characters and that they and what was happening to them were important to me. I wanted to talk to the people in both books and ask them how they are and say "Hey, I know that such-and-such just happened. How are you doing now?" I mean these people are friends of mine!
You can read the description of the book. I'll just say it's about how an amazing and important discovery in a pharmaceutical lab by well meaning Sarah Appleton turns horribly, devastatingly wrong. As with The Painting, another Ryan Casey book, The Hunger is a disturbing and scary tale. I don't know how Ryan does it but I agree with T.A. Dean who also reviewed this book. You owe it to yourself to check out Ryan Casey's works.
Sarah Appleton just wanted to make her father proud. A scientist like her father, Sarah worked at a giant pharmaceutical company which professed to exist for the betterment of mankind through chemistry, although their only actual goal was profits, huge, multibillion dollar profits. When Sarah makes a discovery that could change the world, her future looks bright. However, she soon finds that life can go horribly, horribly wrong in a heartbeat.
The Hunger, by brilliant author Ryan Casey, is a thoroughly fascinating and absorbing tale of how bad things happen to good people. There are finely realized characters who can simultaneously invoke feelings of sympathy and disgust. Mr. Casey's most mature work to date, The Hunger is beautifully plotted and constantly suspenseful and horrifying. Although this is fiction, one marvels at the plausibility of each event as it unfolds.
I highly recommend The Hunger, as well as all of Mr. Casey's other works. If you've not sampled this masterful young author's writing, it is high time you do so.
