it was ok

The prose here would likely be classified as "lyrical," though the narrative seemed to sort of drift by like pretty little pieces of whatnot in the wind; nothing was really grounded and nothing really grabbed me and pulled me in. At times the writing is tryingly lyrical, meaning it gets somewhat annoying; Meidav is clearly a talented writer, but you want these characters to matter, to say something sincere and not hidden behind hipster insouciance. There are bits and pieces here that resonate, but overall I never felt invested in the book.
