really liked it
Recommended for: Everyone

Her writing is always beautiful, always imaginative, always alluring, somehow strangely personal to me. She is my favourite writer, by far. Her words echo straight to the soul. This was an insight into her, a magical idea, a realm all to herself and I loved it. At times, it dragged on a little: ruminations about various people, needless thoughts, letters which were difficult to put into context; but all the way through, there was a voice, a voice of beauty, freedom, love liberating something inside of me.

I loved the part she had on guilt (p.259-260(, of her fear of being abandoned by those she loved in expression of strength. It was beautiful. All beautiful.
