Review:
My very first Persephone book! Quite excited about that, I must say.

This was an enjoyable little read. It's quite charmingly written, though it took me a little while to get into. I was a little confused by all the characters at first, but I got more of a grip the further I got in.

I could very much picture the house this is set in, with all the people in the different rooms and the different floors. It feels sort of like a mix between a play and a short story.

It is very short, and not a lot happens. We don't really get a chance to dig deep, and I thought that was a little sad. I wished we'd had a little more time getting to know these people.

Overall, I enjoyed it, and I would recommend it if you like short, play-like books with beautiful writing.

You can get this book at The Book Depository* or from Persephone Books.
