Summer Reading Adult Book Review: Hunger

Hunger Book Title: Hunger

Author: Elise Blackwell

Review: Hunger is a short fiction book about Leningrad, Russia during World War II. It is the story of scientists who protected seeds that were from ancient plants. There is also a subplot about the narrator’s wife and mistresses. I liked that it discussed Ancient Babylon and its culture. The choices the narrator and his wife make are interesting. It makes you think about the daily decisions in a time of war.
