it was ok
Read in January, 2012

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this book. There was something very detached about reading it, yet the detached nature of of it created a sense of loss and confusion and tenderness, sort of like reaching out to someone but never making contact. In terms of plot, parts of it were super random and the characters seemed sort of one dimensional at times, but almost purposefully so? There is an undercurrent of desperation throughout the story. Beautifully, beautifully written. I read it a couple months ago and am sort of forgetting exactly how I felt about it, but definitely mixed.
