it was amazing

"The Myth of You and Me" is an outstanding book, to put it simply. Stewart has created psychologically complex characters whose ties to one another are authentic and strong. Thanks to a wisely-chosen central conceit--by order of her dear, now-deceased boss, historian Oliver Doucet, heroine Cameron must find estranged friend Sonia in order to deliver to her a package--as well as a great trick of narrative--the reason for the friends' estrangement is not articulated until deep into the book--the story moves forward with all of the intrigue of a good mystery. Stewart's observations about loneliness, love, friendship, and time ring heartbreakingly true. By the end of the book, I cared so deeply for all of the characters that I cried for them and what they had suffered, merely by being alive and feeling creatures who engage--and often fail--in relationships with one another. A beautifully-told story from a wise and honest writer.
