It's the little details that really affected me in "Perfect Nothing." Hunter brings us into a world obsessed with numbers--but numbers that are a sinister and deadly equation. Waist size, hip size, measurements...she shows us what it is like to perceive the world from the point of view with someone suffering from an eating disorder. Most of us have had moments where we've felt upset or embarrassed by our physical appearance--the protagonist of this story, however, is trapped in her own personal struggle, unable to perceive how her actions affect others at the beginning of the story.
Whereas some other stories about illnesses focus on the protagonist's fight alone, Hunter has the honesty and sincerity to also address how anorexia affects those who love the afflicted. It is not easy to read "Perfect Nothing" because it is so real and so painful at points but the conclusion of the story gives the reader hope for both the protagonist and others who have experienced this struggle. Although the message of this story is ostensibly about an eating disorder, I found a deeper meaning from it in considering my own self-image and the way that I myself have related to other people. An excellent read and highly recommended.
This is a must read.
It is impossible to read "Perfect Nothing" without tears streaming from your eyes, even if you have never had your own encounter with this disorder. Ms. Hunter's writing has such a natural flow to it that one would think the words come effortlessly to her. Yet, as an author myself, I know that is seldom the case with any writer. I find it amazing to see writing of this quality produced from the pen of one so young, so it's a safe bet that we have much yet to enjoy of Rachel's writing. In fact, I would not be surprised at all to see her name on the best-seller list in the not-too-distant future.
