The Hunger but Mainly Death Games: A Parody | [Bratniss Everclean]

The Hunger but Mainly Death Games: A Parody

Suzanne Collins' epic trilogy was way more about death than food. Or at least this is what Bratniss Everclean discovers, when she leaves the comforts of Slum 12, Pandumb's garbage dump, to shortsightedly volunteer for a teenage death tournament. But she soon realizes there are fates worse than death...like weirdly 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.

Publisher's Summary

Mockstrich season has begun. Welcome to The Hunger But Mainly Death Games, the hilarious Hunger Games parody, and the only book brave enough to suggest that Suzanne Collins' epic trilogy was way more about death than food.

Or at least this is what Bratniss Everclean discovers, when she leaves the comforts of Slum 12, Pandumb's garbage dump, to shortsightedly volunteer for a teenage death tournament. But she soon realizes there are fates worse than death...like weirdly 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.

Still, with help from her agent Oofie Triptrip and her mentor, Hagridmitch, who's pretty sure he can guide Bratniss to victory in the Tri-Wizard Cup, maybe Bratniss will somehow survive this book that she's the narrator of.

The Hunger But Mainly Death Games is the perfect book for anyone who's going through Hunger Games withdrawal and ready for a wonderfully twisted take on their favorite story and characters. This book is also for the unfortunate teens who are trapped in a Hunger Games at this very moment and could really benefit from some levity. We're here for you, assuming you brought your books into the arena.

    "Huge disappointment!!!! Don't waste your money!!!"
    What would have made The Hunger but Mainly Death Games better?

    This book is horribly written!!!! The original story was ripe for parody, but this version is an absolute WASTE of money!!!


    What was most disappointing about Bratniss Everclean’s story?

    Story??? What story???? This is simply a juvenile attempt at re-writing. This could've been so clever, but no.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    What character would you cut from The Hunger but Mainly Death Games?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not one to complain, but this book was so badly done, I felt the need to warn potential customers. I'm incredibly disappointed. I wish Audible offered refunds to disgruntled customers. Actually, I want the writer to give me my money back. Audible should rescind payment to the author!

    Even my teenage nieces wanted to stop listening, and they're extremely open-minded.
    I'm a comedy lover. I can find humor in almost ANYTHING. But not this.

    "Don't waste the time it takes to download"
    Would you try another book from Bratniss Everclean and/or Arielle DeLisle?

    I would give this Author one more chance but apprehensively


    What could Bratniss Everclean have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The book could have been burned


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Nothing perticularly


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No way in hell


    Any additional comments?

    Why would someone take a book like the Hunger Game and destroy it with a parody like this.

    "funny"

    Its a pretty funny book, but the narrator sounds like a robot, and her accent is hard to understand.
