Stuck in Fast Forward, also known as The Hunger of Time in an expanded edition, is a 1999 young adult science fiction novel by Damien Broderick & Rory Barnes. It follows the story of Donald and his family who decide to travel forward in time in order to wait out the disaster and destruction that the world has become.[1]


Stuck in Fast Forward was first published in 1999 by HarperCollins in paperback format.[2] In 2003 it was expanded and released in the United States by E-Reads under the title, The Hunger of Time.[3] Stuck in Fast Forward was a short-list nominee for the 1999 Aurealis Award for best young-adult novel but lost to Dave Luckett's A Dark Victory.[4]


The Courier-Mail praised Stuck in Fast Forward as hilarious and clever and stating it "has enough quirks to appeal to the most curious future time-traveller."[3]
