內容簡介

「故事非常非常的令人不安,讓人愛不釋手,不推薦在天黑之後閱讀」─史蒂芬‧金,美國暢銷作家

故事以美國西部移民史最慘烈的唐納大隊事件為基底,敘述一群人自東部起程往西部的加州前進,幾個禮拜後,疲倦和飢餓讓隊員們漸漸失去力氣。而每個人隱藏的秘密似乎也無法被壓抑般地浮出水面,隊員間的摩擦消耗著彼此所剩不多的力氣。

而某個小孩的失蹤更是將隊員們的不安給點燃了,每個人都接近崩潰邊緣,一路上的不順利讓他們開始懷疑是否有神祕的力量在跟著他們。

到了某個地點,領隊喬治看著兩條通往同一個地點的路口,一條有著詳細的紀錄,另一個罕有人煙,但謠傳這是一條捷徑,喬治看著疲倦的隊友開始猶豫起來,他的選擇將會影響到其他人的未來。

將近九十人的移民大隊結局會是如何?

After having travelled west for weeks, the party of pioneers comes to a crossroads. It is time for their leader, George Donner, to make a choice. They face two diverging paths which lead to the same destination. One is well-documented – the other untested, but rumoured to be shorter.

Donner’s decision will shape the lives of everyone travelling with him. The searing heat of the desert gives way to biting winds and a bitter cold that freezes the cattle where they stand. Driven to the brink of madness, the ill-fated group struggles to survive and minor disagreements turn into violent confrontations. Then the children begin to disappear. As the survivors turn against each other, a few begin to realise that the threat they face reaches beyond the fury of the natural elements, to something more primal and far more deadly.

Based on the true story of The Donner Party, The Hunger is an eerie, shiver-inducing exploration of human nature, pushed to its breaking point.
