challenging dark emotional reflective sad tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated



The book was nice but the ending was a little too easy in my opinion. Whenever a story has a « mysterious twin that we never heard of » kind of twist, I don’t  like it, but maybe it’s just me. I also didn’t quite get why it had to be a « mise en abîme » of a man writing an unfinished manuscript about a woman who also wrote a book and called hers « the unfinkshed manuscript ». I wonder if I’ll get answers on that later, in the se ond or third book.
