Anita Pomerantz | 6305 comments I loved this tiny bit of insight into the author's thinking. Note you must click on the highlighted words to see the annotation. I somehow didn't find that patently obvious.

Warning: It made me want to reread the book. Something I really never do.

Thanks for posting this, Anita. I am assuming since it is just the first page, there aren't any spoilers?

I pre-ordered the PB version of Exit West and it wasn't released on the date originally listed. Hopefully soon. :-)

Joi (missjoious) | 3782 comments This is awesome. I could read the entire book with his annotated notes and be fascinated.

Interesting many of the annotated notes were alos things we had discussed on PBT! The lack of city name to reflect the readers experience and references, the cadence of the words, glad we picked up on what he was putting down!

Definitely spoiler free in my opinion, Lisa!

Thank you, Anita. I loved this book from the first paragraph because the writing is beautiful and seems effortless, so I love to see the degree of thought that went into almost every word and sentence.
