Read The Hunger by Alma Katsu Online

The Hunger

Evil is invisible, and it is everywhere. Tamsen Donner must be a witch. That is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the wagon train known as the Donner Party. Depleted rations, bitter quarrels, and the mysterious death of a little boy have driven the pioneers to the brink of madness. They cannot escape the feeling that someone--or something--is stalking them. Whether it was a curse from the beautiful Tamsen, the choice to follow a disastrous experimental route West, or just plain bad luck--the 90 men, women, and children of the Donner Party are at the brink of one of the deadliest and most disastrous western adventures in American history. While the ill-fated group struggles to survive in the treacherous mountain conditions--searing heat that turns the sand into bubbling stew; snows that freeze the oxen where they stand--evil begins to grow around them, and within them. As members of the party begin to disappear, they must ask themselves "What if there is something waiting in the mountains? Something disturbing and diseased...and very hungry?"...

The Hunger Reviews

  • Roman Clodia

    And who, besides a monster, would be able to stand by and watch a child starve to death? Patrick Breen would. Of that he was sure. This party had its share of monsters

    As a UK reader I didn't know the story of the Donner party so everything in this book was fresh for me. Looking at Wiki after finishing it, Katsu has done a fine job of both following the actual events and adding a soupcon of supernatural terror to it. Even that, though, is hedged by a more rational, scientific explanation for wh ...more

    Thank you to Glasstown Ent. for giving the Night Worms a copy of this book to all seven of us for an honest review.

    I'm a native of Northern California. I grew up in a historical mining town. For history lessons in primary school, we read books like, Patty Reed's Doll and played a computer game called Oregon Trail where you and your family had to make your way to California in a covered wagon. I often died before reaching the elusive Sutter's Fort. I had too many supplies in the wagon and my oxen

  • Chandra Claypool (wherethereadergrows)

    An unsettling, eerie and atmospheric tale of survival.

    Do you know anything about the history of the Donner Party? I remembered some of it so I did a little research on it before I read Alma's fictionalized version. She does an OUTSTANDING job and I loved reading the end where she explained some of the differentiation.

    Let me just say that I'm glad I was not living through the pioneering era of the world. Granted, had I lived during that time I wouldn't have known any different but..... Also, as

  • Joanne Harris

    Uneasy, nauseous, slow-burning tale that marries historical fiction with a hint of the supernatural. Great detailing; colourful characterization; some supremely ominous stuff, but always reigned in at the final moment to rack up the tension even more. Loved it. Will search out more of the author's work...

    Thanks to the publisher for supplying the Nightworms with hardcover copies of this book, free of charge, in exchange for honest reviews!

    Alma Katsu’s The Hunger is one of the most hyped books of the season and with good reason: this twist on the infamous Donner Party is chilling, and well-told. Through a proper mixture of fact and fiction, Katsu brings to life the Donner Party and the period in which it traveled west, to California, in the mid-1800s. Historical horror fiction can be riveting and

  • Mindi

    A big thank you to Glasstown Ent. for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I'm a huge fan of historical fiction with a paranormal twist. Books like Dan Simmons' The Terror and The Abominable are some of my favorites in the genre, and both have a paranormal threat on top of an already dire situation. When I heard that Katsu was coming out with a book about The Donner Party facing a paranormal entity, I practically squealed in delight. This was a book that I instantly NEEDED.

    Any Oregon child studied the Oregon Trail as part of Oregon history, in 4th grade and 8th grade. In 4th grade we played the Oregon Trail computer game in the Intel-provided computer lab, and in 8th grade we did more of a LARP version of the game. My group named itself the Dumber Party, in tribute to the Donner Party. I was Mary Dumber, the only female of the group.

    Do I even have to say that we were obsessed with the Donner Party?

    "He told her of a hunger that lodged not in his stomach, but his blood, an excavating hunger that festered like an unclean wound." (148)


    The story of The Hunger is a fascinating concept, and I have been so excited for this book for months. As you can tell from my rating, this book was pretty hyped, and I ended up disappointed.

    The Hunger is a slow-burn story, but the sense of dread that carries out from the beginning is so well done. I was expectantly waiting for it all to come together in th
