I am a guy who is dying to be thin, and I related so much to this book. It is grasping, honest, and detailed. And it portrays a lot of what it is like to have an eating disorder. To that reader who said that only 10% of males have ED's, btw, it's closer to 35%.

I find it interesting that the author made the anorexia/the voice in his mind the narrator. I really loved this book!

Really unique book from the perspective of the voice/ED. Also really easy to read. I sat down and read the entire thing in a few hours. Very interesting read.

This book was both engaging and interesting. It was a quick read with a surprising amount of depth. I appreciated that it dealt with an issue that's not always recognized or talked about, anorexia in boys - guys make up roughly 10% of anorexic patients.The author did a great job of demonstrating the insidious manner in which a mental illness such as anorexia can overtake and steal away a life.

This book is so beautifully, uniquely written. I love this book so much because I can relate to it so easily. I recommend this book to anyone liking a read on REDEMPTION.
