Laurens Hammond (January 11, 1895 – July 1, 1973), was an American engineer and inventor. Laurens Hammond was born in Evanston, Illinois, on January 11, 1895 to William Andrew and Idea Louise Strong Hammond.

There is no United States. There is no world. An asteroid has destroyed what the human race knew as earth and The Great Famine has wiped out most of the surviving human population. For the few remaining survivors, food is scarce-- precious--a luxury. A luxury that most humans can t find. Seventeen year old Georgina Carver is fortunate. She s survived the destruction. She eats three times a day while the rest of humanity is plagued by The Great Famine. And she s safe, hidden away in an underground colony with her family and several other families of survivors. All of that changes the day she s randomly selected to be a gatherer. Georgina must leave her safe yet simple world and venture out into a world unknown. A vast, dangerous, destroyed world that could literally eat her alive. After Georgina is severely injured, her life begins to fall apart. She can t remember how she got home or what happened to her while she was on the new earth. The boy she is crushing on avoids her and she keeps having visions that involve an unknown person with violet eyes. As Georgina begins to unravel the truth, it doesn t take her long to figure out that maybe her safe yet simple life isn t that safe at all.
Reviews about Famished (7):
GREAT concept. So much could have been done with the storyline, but there were too many unbelievable circumstances, gaping plot holes, and even from the first paragraph it goes wrong.

Ok, so like, an asteroid is coming right? And the people have six hours to prepare. SIX HOURS. And in that SIX HOURS this girl's father manages to not only just start digging in his backyard, but in six hours he actually creates a complicated, multi-roomed underground bunker with concrete floors, an infirmary, a rec room, secret hidden compartments, a kitchen, multiple family quarters, a council meeting room - oh, and create the COUNCIL. They also have beds, clothing, school supplies, games, books, linen, food, medicine, live chickens, fresh vegetables growing, and I would assume laundry and bathing facilities, which means piped in running water. In six hours.

Also in that six hours, her father manages to invite other families to participate in the colony, form a council, and during this time, the bad guy manages to implant SENSORS (not censors) inside the heads of all the children. Without their parents knowing. In six hours.

I give the author her props for innovativeness, and this could have been an outstanding book. But the horrible editing - or complete lack thereof, plot holes you could drive a truck through (for one, how is the bad guy running his equipment???), and completely unbelievable storylines ruined it for me.

I hope the author keeps at it, because the idea of this was great. The execution was not.
I bought this book after having read all the reviews. For those who had given it a one star I figured they just weren't into the post-apocalyptic world, or perhaps were into some seriously advanced reading. I decided to give it a shot though since it was only 0.99 cents.

WELL. Let me tell you those one star reviews were right. The story is so poorly written its not even funny. Its like the author had a great story in the works but rather than sitting there and developing a great idea into a magnificant story it was hurridly written into a novel and then put on the market. The story goes by too quickly. Which is fine if you're writing a book aimed at a 3rd grade level but I thought this was supposed to be at least teen. The details are not well written out in a way that enables you to really savor it.

Then theirs the issue about the 'love' stories. Like the main person is supposed to be sixteen but she's madly in love with a guy that she acted like she hated for the first ten pages? And then she stops loving him like the snap of her fingers and automatically loves someone else without really knowing the guy or developing the story? Its just not written well at all and the novel is made out to be about the romances rather than the actual issue at hand.

If you're looking for a good or at least decent post-apocalyptic story, don't bother with this garbage.
This story was pretty good. Don't know why it got low ratings. I enjoyed it. I liked the characters as well as the story line. The ending was left open for another book. Lets see if one comes up. That would be nice.
Famished is the story of Georgina Carver, a girl who lives in an underground colony after the destruction of the earth. She considers herself fortunate because unlike the survivors on the earth's surface, she has food to eat each day. But when the colony decides to hold a lottery and send two teenagers to the surface to search for supplies, Georgina is selected to go. She sees firsthand just how bad things are up above. Hammond paints a clear picture in the mind of the reader, making you experience the world as Georgina comes to know it after the asteroid. I was horrified and scared right along with Georgina. And things get more intense as the story moves along. Georgina finds herself in a world that's even more dangerous than she imagined, and the danger has crept into her colony.

If you are looking for a book that will have you turning pages and your heart racing, then Famished won't disappoint. Lauren Hammond proves that you'd be surprised what people will do when they are famished.
I have to disclose I am a 26 year old adult and Amazon suggested this because I love twilight and I recently read The Cobra Event. This book really isn't great for the level of reading I'm interested in. Too teen focused. I'm sure young adults would love it though, filled with suspense and romance.
