I finally finished this! The writing is so dense and it took me a while to get used to Powell's style, but once I did I really loved it. I think he accurately describes the tenuousness of friendships - especially in your early twenties - and how people drift in and out of each other's lives. Plus, he always sneaks in some gorgeously written sentence that makes you say, "Ooooh, so THAT'S what life is about." That being said, I am going to have to majorly gear myself up for the second movement.
