The worst book I’ve read in my adult life. It is shocking to me how this book is raved about, and how horrible it ended up being. My favorite part was the ending, but not because the book was over. The ending was also the saddest part of the entire book. I would’ve opted to not finish it, but I felt like I had to. I’m sorry I wasted the time. The audiobook narrator was insufferable too

I feel like this book healed me in a way that I did not imagine when I started it. The theme of the book is a new start. I've heard a lot of people don't like this book because "nothing happens", but it is about the main characters inner journey, so it's mostly herself reflecting and her inevitable madness. I feel like this book was written for people who have dealt with depression, and it just felt so real and heartbreaking. Depression definitely comes in a lot of different forms, but I could relate to a lot of what she was experiencing. This book was definitely written from someone who did struggle, and I can therefore see why people who have no experience with depression (personally or secondhand) would dislike this book. It is definitely not easily digestible

I really can't fully understand the feelings this book made me feel. But for one thing, it was amazing how it kept me entertained with literally no plot and as I like to think with the ending no character development. You see, with the very privileged life the heroine has, her traumas and her way of thinking I don't really believe she changed. Anyways, the reading experienc was definitely something, especially with everyone being unlikable.
