The Beauty of the House is immeasurable, its Kindness infinite

this book is beautiful in a strange way.
it was rather boring at the beginning, it was confusing and it was written in a unique/weird way that the last two brain cells in my brain couldn’t quite understand.

but as i continued, it was getting easier to understand, and the pace started to quicken up a little bit. the mystery started to unravel, and i started to have feelings for the characters— be it hatred or fondness.


it was a bit alarming how little conversations occurred in this book, i was worried i’m gonna DNF it.

but turns out, i didn’t.

i’m glad i get to finish this, i might reread it to be able to understand more.
