It’s a bit boring, the stories are beautiful though.
Which makes me think maybe the best kind of life is like living in a boring book.
I am going to take a break to see if I want to pick it up later.

Just starting this. I feel like this is something that needs to be read slowly. The language and the writing seem to be more the point than the actual story.
