Review: Hunger

Hunger by Knut Hamsun
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I’m really not sure what I’m supposed to think; suffice to say that there were plenty crazyness in this book. As title tells, this book is about hunger.

The narrator (I don’t think his true name was told) is a poor man. He is unemployed yet loves to write and sometimes sells his piece of writing. He is pretty much hungry throughout the book. As the story is told in first person, it’s kind of hard to decide whether he was slightly insane to begin with or if the hunger drives him insane. He has his own sets of morals that he tries very hard to uphold and what is most admirable is his generosity. Sometimes you are so touched and then other times, you just want to shake some sense into him.

An interesting piece about hunger and what it can drive a man to do yet if he is an honorable man, how far does it drive you?
