it was amazing
bookshelves: kindle

I thought this was excellent - I loved how the chapters jumped around in time and you just kind of picked up on the connections between people's lives. It was very surreal and I liked how stories tied together and you found out the outcome of a cliffhanger 15 years later, or sometimes understood how someone came to feel a certain way by reading about them years before. I especially liked the chapter told in PowerPoint by the teenage girl - it was so creative. I read reviews mentioning this and I think the descriptions don't really capture how unique and still powerful it is.
