Lauren Thoughts? This one has been on my 'maybe for beach reading' list for awhile.

Breanna Hi,

You know how sometimes after finishing a book, everything you try to pick up & start afterward seems silly, awful, boring, meaningless...
That's how I (still) feel four days after finishing, which is surprising because 1. I wasn't convinced I wanted to read this book in the first place (book club choice) and 2. I only gave it four stars.

I don't know what it is about this book/author, but I think it's a combination of the subtlely different writing style (dry and stark but still very full) and the uniqueness of the story and characters that all come together and make this book unique from so many other things I've read. It's not my favorite book or the best book ever, but I would 100% recommend it.
