This book seems long, is it worth it? Also what exactly is it about?

Clara Biesel It's so, so, so worth it. I found it helpful to make a little character chart for myself in the beginning when I was meeting them all, but oh man. I loved it.

It's about love, but also about trying to do some good in the world. It's about people understanding each other and understanding themselves, and what happens when someone can't do either. I just finished it, and all I want to do is read it again.
Danielle Wilson It is worth the long slog.
Alex It's the best book ever written, so that's a yes.

It's about a group of people and their efforts to live happy, fulfilled lives.
