This was a quick read, and it dealt with some great subject material. Though, I liked the secondary characters more than I liked Lisa. Her struggle was conveyed well, both with food, and with this job thrust upon her-- Famine- one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I just didn't connect with her as well as some other main characters, nothing particular that I didn't like. I am a fan of Moonlight, her horse, and Death-- his random "yo"s and dark sense of humor did it for me. The plot is original, and something that I have never thought about or heard about before, an anoretic being Famine-- but it makes sense.
