Publisher's Summary

Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them. Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night - a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood. When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him. He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible - and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever - but is it worth the cost of his humanity?

    Story
    "This had me on my toes from start to finish."
    What made the experience of listening to The Hunt the most enjoyable?

    This book constantly made me feel tense and nervous. Everything would seem perfectly calm in one moment and then suddenly everything would change the next moment. At first, it felt predictable, but after a while I was going minute by minute, never knowing what to expect.


    What other book might you compare The Hunt to and why?

    It shares some elements with other dystopian books, especially "The Hunger Games", but all-in-all, it was a pretty unique experience. It was far more thrilling than THG, though they both focus the element of survival.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    At first, I wasn't happy with the narrator, but as the story went on I came to realize that his style fit the main character's moods perfectly. He was a little dull, but when the story picked up he racked up the suspense well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I think my most extreme reactions were the couple of times that I was literally yelling in frustration when there was something very bad happening and it seemed like the characters
    weren't thinking things through. That was how much I grew to care about the main character. I was literally talking to him, sympathizing with him and gasping when he makes a new realization.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, this was a great story and I can't wait for more.

    "You will not be bored!"

    This well-written dystopian novel will hold your attention throughout the entire book. Sean Runnette does a fantastic job narrating. Can't wait to start the next one!

    Story
    "Loved The Hunt in Audibook form"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunt to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed both equally but it was definitely enjoyable listening to the story. The Narrator was great!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the complexity of the world. The steps Gene has to take to blend in while bizarre are completely unique to this story.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The creepy factor in his voice is what sold me on the audiobook in the first place. If I didn't like it so much I probably wouldn't of bought it in all honesty.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, but then again maybe that is because I had already read the book before listening to the Audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll just leave off saying that I highly recommend picking this Audiobook up if you haven't done so already.

    Story
    "This was an exceptionally good book!"

    I really liked this book. It was so interesting to listen to the story from the point of view of someone who was human - but felt like he didn't fit into the world of the 'people'. The people are never referred to as vampires or monsters, instead it is understood that the people are normal - and the main character is the one who is different. The one who has to adapt in order to fit in.

    I was surprised by the very ending of the book - so much that I immediately had to see if there was another book by Andrew Fukuda. I grew to care about the characters in the book and wanted to know what happens to them next!

    "Interesting"
    Would you try another book from Andrew Fukuda and/or Sean Runnette?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    A very interesting combination of a vampire book with the Hunger Games and Planet of the Apes. The first 3/4 is a fun sociological study. It was so well done and had me thinking that I could not wait for the Hunt to begin. That didn't go as well as I hoped. It was as if he simply lost steam once he got to the end and just slapped something together. I also wonder what was going on with the narrator. There was no emotion or inf lexicon or anything. Most of the characters sounded alike so I had a hrd time knowing who was speaking. I did thnk for awhile that the main character has to hold back his emotions pretending to be a a vampire so maybe that's what the narrator was going for. The longer the book went on the more I feel like that was giving him more credit than he deserves.

    "Unique & intriguing."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunt to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version. so I cannot compare the two versions.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the story is obviously about vampires, but the author never uses the word vampire.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is an important plot twist & I don't want to spoil it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read book 2. I often am unsure what to spend my credit on, but not for the next 2 months.

    I love books! All kinds... classics, mysteries, Christian fiction, suspense and action! I'm also a sucker for anything romantic. ;) And just recently started getting into some non-fiction, philosophical books.

    Story
    "A Teen vampire story... but a FANTASTIC one!"

    I really enjoyed this book, FAR more than I expected. The story had me on the edge of my seat almost the whole time. INCREDIBLY action packed. I finished it in 3 days... and I haven't been on a road trip or anything! It took the place of television, especially the last day when I started and finished part 2. I was on the edge of my seat the last 5 hours. It was insane!

    It's a great take on the vampire genre, bringing in the weird and intense differences between vampires and humans. It's got all of the elements of a great dystopian survivor story. It's very hard to explain or go on about this book without giving things away. LOTS of twists and turns! As I said, I couldn't stop listening and am planning on purchasing The Prey (book 2) when I finish writing this review.

    WORD OF WARNING!
    This book does have it's gross moments. The vampires salivate at the thought of humans (heepers) but they talk about how the drool runs down their chins and pools on the desks and floor. Thick blood dripping down their chins as they eat bloody raw meat drips into a bowl that fills up and they drink it at the end of the meal. There's also a couple VERY vivid descriptions about what happens to certain vampires in sunlight. I DID gag a couple times.

    But all of that creates such an amazing picture of the world of the book, and I felt it added to the fear and intensity, although it grossed me out a bit.

    Scary, exciting, mysterious and action packed, I don't understand why The Hunt doesn't have more of a following!

    Story
    "Surprisingly Interesting and engaging"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunt to be better than the print version?

    Maybe. Possibly, the slower sections are easier to listen to than read?


    What other book might you compare The Hunt to and why?

    Hunger Game - a government organized hunt/killing game. Ender's Game - Child/Young person alone and expected to outsmart a devious and pitiless enemy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Gene is trapped in a dark library with a bunch of blood thirsty vampires.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Gene is thinking about his life and the audience sees his self-hatred.


    Any additional comments?

    In the beginning of this book I didn't think I'd like it. Regardless of faults I found, I am still eager to read the next book.

    Story
    "Good story, just got to get past the narrator."

    Decent story line but the biggest drawback for me is the presentation style of the narrator. Dramatic pauses during sentences that made me think William Shatner in all his Star Trek glory was reading to me almost had me give up on the book in the first 20 minutes because it was so distracting. Once I was able to tune out the obnoxious presentation style I became engrossed in the plot and was glad I stuck it out.
