's review

it was amazing

This book took me so long to finish - granted I had to stop reading it several times to read my monthly book club book - but it was totally worth it in the end. As I continued to read, I ended up loving this book so much I wanted to inhale it. It is completely harrowing, but if you can stomach that, it's an incredible love story. My interpretation is that it's about how selfless love cannot cancel out pain and suffering -- and the cruelty of other humans to each other -- but how it can make life worth living and beautiful, even in the face of the rough hand of fate. I finished it on a plane yesterday and had to shamelessly cry in front of my aisle mates, as I was edged in the middle seat.
