challenging emotional hopeful reflective sad medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


while i totally understand why people adore this book, it simply didn't resonate with much as much as i'd hoped.

there was some magnificent writing but overall i didn't connect with many characters who lacked development to make them multidimensional and therefore lacked the emotional attachment to really care about certain things, and towards the end i felt like it was just a pile of traumatic events happening one after the other

i do believe it is an important book and i still enjoyed a big part of it
