Eating disorders are a choice, not a disease! Doing everything but providing the reader his finger to purge, first time novelist, athesist and 17-year bulimic Drew Stepek proves his controversial theory in his new novel titled GODLESS.
A combative, heart-wrenching novel, the psychological and physically distressing drama played out in GODLESS leads the reader through a surprising and shocking path that could only be told by someone who has lived the experience and the pain first-hand. D, the primary character in GODLESS is obviously a tormented soul.
Underneath the torment, we discover a secret, a secret so horrific that D doesn’t even remember it, until the day his father makes known what is at the root of D’s suffering. Mr. Stepek shares a provocative tale that zeros in on the trauma of male bulimia and addiction that is both compelling and forceful. And while there are many books, both fiction and non-fiction that are superbly written and which address the subject of bulimia and addiction, none genuinely tap into the heart and soul of the subject quite the same way as GODLESS.
The book that started it all is nothing like I might have expected, and it exceeds all expectations. First off, Godless is not a horror in the traditional sense, but it is absolutely terrifying in that it is real to life. Right off, I liked Drew's matter of fact way of approaching the story. There is no bullshit or overembellishment. He tells his story the way he sees it and moves on, creating a pace that feels very real to life, and he has a conversational style that is compelling and easy to read. Reading Godless is like listening to music, and it is a lesson in writing. I just can't say enough good things about it. It is one of the best novels I have read in years, and because it is not Horror, there is no good reason for it to not to be a Barns & Nobles #1 bestseller or something - except for maybe the title and cover, which appeals to me, but would be a turn off to a general audience.
