  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


this is one of my favorite books of all time. it is the perfect mix of funny and depressing. i am a sucker for the narrator's toxic and lazy approach to life. her experiences as a depressed, mentally ill woman are so relatable.
