The Atheist’s Prayer by Amy Biddle – Review


Blurb:

After a solar eclipse, nineteen people were found dead in a remote area of the California National Forest. They were lying in a circle, holding hands and wearing plastic fairy wings. 

Years later, on the other side of the country, no one in the southern city of Jefferson is concerned about fairies or fairy-worshipping suicide cults. Except for Candy. She might not have proof, but she’s damn sure it’s going to happen again. 

The problem is, Candy is a coke-dealing stripper and the only person who will listen to her is an alcoholic mall Santa named Hank, who’s only listening because, well…she’s hot. 

There are seven days until the next eclipse.

My Review:

The idea of a cult has always been one of the things I most dislike about religions. And this book reminds me why.

Although it’s billed as a dark contemporary comedy, the contents are no laughing matter. Two kids are basically brainwashed into a suicidal cult through the girl’s irresponsible mother. They get insanely close to succeeding, too.

This book is all twists, turns and suspense that makes yoi want to keepmyour kids close – even if you dont have any.

A wonderful, thought-provoking book.

4.5/5
