I didn't really understand this book. The main character is rude and can only focus on her need for sleep and her pill addiction. All of the characters are interesting, to say the least... And in the end, she solves her boredom and is interested in life again? Boring.

I like the missery and all die Gedanken. Wie man dennoch durch das Trauma des alltäglichem Leben kann... Wie unser Leben uns mit seiner Banalität und Oberflächlichkeit fertig macht dass es wo was wie Drogen geben muss um uns damit um zu gehen zu lassen.all diese oberflächlich Lösung sind dazu da weil es keine radikalen Lösung zu Problem gibt die die Gesellschaft durch bestimmten Erwartungen in einen überhaupt erst erschaffen
