This book did not capture me. I found myself drudging through it as I did not care about the characters. The letters were very fake deep. Some elements of the narration reminded me of Normal People which was good. However with the writing style half the time I didn’t know what was going on. Kinda a struggle for me but glad they all ended up happy in the end. Friendships and relationships between Simon and Eileen, Alice and Felix.
