I struggled with this book at first, finding it simultaneously too academic and too poetic for me to understand, but as it went on I found myself enjoying it more and more. It's both uplifting in how it discusses hope and depressing in how it describes the fear and uncertainty that comes with future-planning in this current time. I'm left feeling a lot of complicated emotions now that it's over.
