Godless is Awesome,
By A Customer
This review is from: Godless (National Book Award for Young People's Literature (Awards)) (Hardcover)
First, I loved the characters. It was great to hang out with them. Second, I loved what it was about. Godless shows you how a religion could come to be--how it could actually be created.
Pete Hautman always takes on big issues in his books: Sweetblood--vampires and diabetes, Mr. Was--abuse and time travel, Stone Cold--gambling. In this new book, he decides to take on a huge issue--what and how we believe God to be.
Godless is serious and funny at the same time, at the same moment. You can be laughing about what a character is saying and yet it can be painful and true.
