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

challenging dark emotional reflective tense slow-paced
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I really didn't think any of this was funny despite the book claiming so. still, this was an interesting rather quick read about privilege and trauma. I hated the characters but the writing was good enough to push past that.
