I'm CRYING like you can't believe right now.

Oh my God, this book took my emotions and heart and broke them and then put them back together again by the end. I love each and every character, and the entire atmosphere. It's very easy to see this story as a movie. One thing I didn't like was all the casual fatphobia, which got in the way of more heartfelt moments and was wholly unnecessary. But jeez, I'm gonna need to take a night to process this before moving onto another book.

It's adorable at its heart with incredible themes of morality, philosophy, living and surviving. It's such a colourful home of a novel. I'm sad I took so long reading it, but the second half of the book I read in one night, and the first took a while for me to get into, I think, due to the prose and tone style. Linus is adorably fierce and a great main character. Really liked it.
