"Started this after reading a string of shitty lady-books and more literary (yet still half-assed) novels immediately confirmed how poorly written and unchallenged by editing standards so many books are these days.

Edited to add: re-read over many bedtimes at the end of 2017 / beginning of 2018 purely for non-neurotypical comfort. Happy to be reminded of excellent things about this book that I forgot.
