ughhh this book was so good

an unreliable narrator throws you into the middle of a life with confusing ideas and muddled thoughts. largely a metaphor for life and relationships.

the imagery was beautiful and wonderous. the characters complex and intense

the slow revelation that you make with the character had me unable to put the book down. it made me laugh it made me cry- a perfect book.

SpoilerPiranesi's mental state is reminiscent of DID (from what I've seen on youtube/tiktok). I wonder if the author meant that.
