4.5

one of those books that I was wary about because of all the hype, but I'm extremely glad to say that this lived up to expectations.  maybe I had lowered my expectations a bit due to the excessive hype.

this was way more trauma-filled than I was expecting, fyi.

the list of new releases with commercial appeal that have a lot of hype surrounding them that I think live up to their lofty expectations is pretty short: Tomorrow x3Lessons in Chemistry, and I'm Glad My Mom Died.  all are very solid 4.5/5s from me.

As a novel, TATAT is extremely well crafted, the writing is impeccable, it’s inventive, the prose is both enjoyable and admirable. There is no true objectivity in art, but I’d say most would agree that it’s a solid 5-star book. 

On a more personal level, while I enjoyed TATAT, it hasn’t become one of my all time favourites. I suppose it is just not the one for me. 

The most important thing I have to say about this book is:
It’s about The Secret Third Thing.
