  • Plot- or character-driven? Character

  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes

If I could give this book 6 stars I would. Absolutely beautiful. I didn’t understand everything in this book but that do not change the fact that the book is the best ever made. I wonder though if it is a autobiography or not? And my favorite character was Sankt Vincent. Going to have to reread it sometime. In english because I read it in swedish.
