Why You Should Read This:
Words cannot describe just how soul consuming this has been to read. Just.
The writing is sublime, switching between snarky repartee to soul discovering epiphanies without a beat lost between. Characters finding their feet in a crazy world, and they drag you along with them. There is no real ‘Big Monologuing Speech’ or ‘Big Discovery’ that explains everything a chapter or two in. No, it’s a series of medium discoveries, and small discoveries and thoughtless words. There is no ‘Big Fix’, there is no ‘Perfect Ending’. But it’s as close as you can get. And that makes it worth it.
