Review:
This book was next level strange.

I'm a little unsure what to say about this book and I don't know if I fully understand it. It's separated into two parts and I really liked the first one, but I felt it went a bit over the edge in the second part. The book is as much about how to tell a story and the use of language than the actual story, which is quite an interesting thing to read, but it gets a bit much in certain parts in my opinion.

It's a very mysterious and experimental book and I'm not really sure how I feel about it quite yet. It was an interesting read though and one I've thought quite a lot about since I finished it, but it needs a bit more time to simmer, I think. It might even need a reread.

It's a weird book and it's a bit all over the place, but it does have a certain beauty to it. Odd though, really odd.
