I really liked its meditations on the male gaze, and the many interesting ways that it drove him its most basic point - that life can sometimes suffocate women. It was so engaging from start to finish and a quick read. I even enjoyed the point of view, and didn’t find that disliking the narrator/s got in the way of enjoying the book as a whole. Highly recommend.
