A review by siobhanann
My Year of Rest and Relaxation, by Ottessa Moshfegh

challenging dark emotional reflective fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I found it so emotionally draining reading this book which is partly why I adored it. I found myself hating and loving the main character so much, partly because I identified with her atributes I didnt much like in someone. It really made me question what type of person I am whilst also enjoying the plot and seeing where her journey ended/started.
