Hungry Gods by J.D. Brink (Narrated by Todd Menesses)

 Superheros… Zombies… What?

3.5 out of 5 stars

Hungry God is a book about Superheroes… and Zombies. There are other themes at play here, but it is really a story about those two things. The problem is the world’s best superheroes are missing and someone has to save the day!

Todd Menesses does a great job narrating this. He has one of those really good narration voices that makes for a great storytelling experience. Todd pays close attention to detail and that makes any story come alive.

The overall “theme” of the book was that of a superhero. While Marvel movies are winning over audiences worldwide, I still am a bit of a skeptic. That being said, once you allow yourself to get into the world that J.D. Brink has written for you — the story is much easier to read and enjoy. Pushing my superhero bias aside, Hungry Gods had a nice plot and a fun and easy to follow the story.

Overall, anyone who likes or loves superheroes will definitely love this book. If you have a hard time imagining people running around in spandex suits and the likes — then maybe skip it. Though I enjoyed it just because of Menesses narration. The addition of zombies helped a good amount too, but that can also be seen as cliche since zombies are everywhere right now (not literally, thank god).

I’ve loved reading since I was little when my dad would read me Dr. Suess books. Fast-forward a little and I noticed that he was always reading on his lunch breaks at work, and I wondered why.Then, I found a book that took me to another place and time, to another feeling,another sense of “being”.It was the first book that I ever fell in love with, and I’ve been chasing that feeling ever since.
