not much happens in this book tbh. it kinda feels like reading a drunk person's account of a fever dream. the narrator is unhinged. luckily, i have a soft spot for unhinged woman.

A ideia de se descolar da realidade para um ano de descanso e relaxamento definitivamente é um detox. 
Os momentos de total solitude são os meus preferidos, nada está acontecendo, os dias só estão se passando e ela só está vivendo na cabeça dela. Os momentos de longas ações necessárias são tão cansativos pra protagonista quanto pra mim, há uma simpatia pelo desejo de existir da forma mais ínfima possível.
Pela escrita da autora é fácil sentir esse fluxo de sedação ao tempo. E esse fluxo se torna, enfim, apenas a calma de viver a cada segundo que se está acordada.
