  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


This book took me a lot of motivation to get through!
Even though I liked the story as a whole, I found some parts of the book a little boring and unnecessary and I didn’t understand why they were that important to the plot to be included in the book.
I guess I’m just not into classics, because every time I try to read one I find myself procrastinating finishing it.
But one thing I must add is that I found some very interesting quotes in this book, especially at the beginning and towards the end.
