I won this book as a Goodreads giveaway and it was a slow read for me. It wasn't my usual type of book that I read but I'm always up for something different so I gave this one a try.

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the characters were a little too obsessed with themselves and their art/writing, etc. for my liking. I grew tired of the constant obsession of how others perceived them and how the world would define them solely by a piece of art or a written play.

I liked parts of the story but it all seems a little scattered to me.
