This book differed a lot from what I had expected by looking at it, which I guess proves what they always say about judging books . . .

I loved the unique style of writing and found the bleak observations into love and relationships all the more powerful for how much they rang true for me. The ending felt strange, as though there perhaps should be another chapter, but in a book which is much more character- than plot-driven, the lack of a plot wrap-up is not fatal.
