I'm not going to lie. I went into this book knowing that the narrator is intentionally written to be unlikable, but I rooted so hard for her to overdose. That would've been a better ending than she still feels like garbage but garbage that's at peace after being a horrible friend and person. I don't care what the booktok girlies say, I see their love and obsession for Miss Narrator, but she is the worst. Her self aggrandizing is so annoying and grating, and the book would've ended better with her dead. That said, I was sucked into the audiobook and finished it in two days on a higher speed. Was it because I wanted to get past her self important bullshit and hear her die? Yes. Was I let down when she was alive? Also yes.

This one's weird, don't know how to feel about it.

I get what its going for but the 'dark humor' and the end did not work well with all. It was just mean and 'Robot Chicken' edgy and I mean that in a pretty insulting manner. Same with the characters but I could have respected and analyzed them but author went to far into the irrephrehensible category with the characters to understand everyone's unlikability (meaning that the main character using slurs and being involved with a highschool student).

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
