Hunger Games Parody
For those of you waiting to read this particular Hunger Games spoof well now you can! The Hunger But Mainly Death Games: A Parody is now available on Amazon.com for the Kindle. In case you need a refresher we have the book description and, after that, the hilarious trailer produced to go along with the book.
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’s 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 confident 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 e-reader into the arena.
We previously mentioned The Hunger Games parody The Hunger But Mainly Death Games novel that will be released Nov 15, 2011, written by Aaron Geary and John Bailey Owen. Now they have released the book trailer, which made me laugh out loud, and you can download the first chapter for free! Here is an excerpt from that first chapter, a conversation between Bratniss and Greta:
“You know, all this talk of the Hunger But Mainly Death Games is making
me wonder what it would be like to kill a person,” I say. “I’m not sure I could do
“I have a feeling you’d be fine,” Greta replies. “You just killed an entire
family of squirrels with a single ninja star.”
“But killing a person is different.”
“You just picked up a venomous snake, swung it around to break its spine,
and used it to lasso another snake, and now you’re eating that snake raw.”
True enough. But all the same, something inside me whispers that if I ever
had to turn my mustard gas gun on a person, I simply wouldn’t be able to.
Mustard gas costs upwards of one wood chip. No way I’m paying that much to kill
only a single human being.
I’m looking forward to reading more!
What the…I don’t even….The horrible abomination above is a “mockstrich”.
It happened with Twilight and Harry Potter, and now it’s happening with The Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games has reached that critical point where it enters the pop culture lexicon. Now there will be a full-length parody novel.
From authors of Nightlight comes The Hunger But Mainly Death Games, the only parody brave enough to suggest that The Hunger Games was way more about death than food.
Or at least this is what Bratniss Everclean discovers, when she shortsightedly volunteers for a teenage death tournament. But she soon realizes there are fates worse than death…like having to kiss her fellow competitor and lifelong stalker, Pita Malarkey.
The Hunger But Mainly Death Games will make you laugh so hard that you die. The authors assume no liability for any reading-based deaths. Read at your own risk.
What do you think? Are you glad our little book is spreading its wings, or do you think it cheapens the book? I can’t say I even got a slight chuckle out of that description, but it’s good to see THG popping up all over the place. More pics after the break.
