The title is literal, and also not. True, everyone is hungry, but that is just a small part of it. Hunger is the combination of hunger for power, and also hunger for food. In the beginning, I thought it was just about food, and I did not understand until much later. In this book, it is important to look at it from all angles, and there are a lot of hidden meanings that you have to look hard to find.
There is one thing that did not make sense. Over and over throughout the book, it says it has been three months. When the first book (Gone) ended, it was around October, right after Sam's birthday. In the beginning of this book, it says it is March. October to March is not three months, so I think the author forgot to explain something.
Overall, this was a good book. I liked the concept and the continuation of events. I am excited to read the next book, Lies.
Read my review of the first book in this series, Gone.
