it was amazing

I forgot how or why this ended up on my audio loans list on Hoopla but boy am I glad it made it there. This was gorgeously written (and wonderfully performed on audiobook) with characters that felt so tangible to me, I wanted to reach into the book and touch them. It’s hard to sum up the overall premise of the book which covers a lot of themes following a young woman’s personal journey in 1930’s New York City.

Although this book feels far-removed in time and place, there’s something about the the setting, the characters and their hardships that feel so familiar and real. I was completely invested in Katey Kontent’s journey and completely lost in Towles glittering descriptions of 1930s New York.
