this has got to be THE most disgusting book i’ve ever read in my life so far. like absolutely GRODYYYY !!!! but i loved it! honestly feel like miss moshfegh did a great job portraying how fucked up ppl rlly are (as always) and managed to flesh out every character (both major and minor) super well! i did not like a single one of these mfs, i despised all the men and felt sorry for (most of) the women. everyone in this book is a monster esp jude he sucks balls

Probably more like a 3.5 but rounding up. I liked this more than MYORAR.

I feel like I just read a book produced by A24.

There is definitely a lot of symbolism and meaning in this book. I won't even try to pretend I comprehended all of it, but I could definitely tell it was there.
