ReMade: Season One-Episode 2 "Hungry"...

Hungry (ReMade #1.2) - Gwenda Bond, Andrea  Phillips, Carrie Harris, Kiersten White, E.C. Myers, Matthew  Cody

Hungry is the second episode in the ReMade serial and it's written by Andrea Phillips. It continues the story of the 23 teenagers that are dropped into this new post-apocalyptic world.


In this episode specifically, the survivors are getting to know one another and they're trying to work out the basics of surviving- looking for food, finding shelter and figuring out how they got there and why....


Honestly, the writing style and content just has too young of a vibe to it for me. I read a lot of YA dystopian/post-apocalyptic books as long as they're geared toward adults too but I feel like I'm out of my comfort zone with this serial. As long as the content stays age-appropriate, I think a younger audience would enjoy this a lot more then I would so I'm going to call it quits with this episode. There's nothing inherently wrong with it, it's just not for me.


I know I've said it before but the Bookburners serial is fantastic and more my speed so if you like serials, I would recommend 'adults' to check it out first. There's also another a serial published by Serial Box too that I was looking into yesterday called The Witch Who Came in From the ColdI haven't read it yet but it sounds really good and I plan to check it out soon. It's a fantasy style serial set during the Cold-War featuring magic, sorcerers, spies etc.
