Hunger (Riders of the Apocalypse Series)

Hunger - Jackie Kessler Jackie Morse Kessler weaves a dramatic YA read about a real subject that in today's world where appearances are everything is killing many people, coated with a bit of fantasy and just enough humour she writes about the 4 Horsemen of Apocalypse and what would happen if an anorexic girl was chosen as Famine, the Dark Rider.Hunger is an enthralling read that talks about the struggle of a girl with her body, after been caught in a catch-22 situation by Death she finds herself engrossed by her job as Famine where she must look at hunger everyday. Hunger shows the importance of friendship and how bad relations can trap you and that sometimes appearance are not everything. Though a bit short in pages the book is large in history and everyone can relate to the character's pain to be thin and with her discomfort with her own body. Fast-passed and captivating Hunger is sure to make you spent a nice time and then ponder over the concept of beauty today.Altogether, Hunger is definitely recommendable and can't wait to read more of her books. www.international-reviewer.blogspot.com
