it was… a really magnificent, incredible book. the ending, all the little details packed in that you know have significance but haven’t quite figured out all of them or at least all of their depth yet… to me, that’s a sign of a good book: one that still leaves you wondering after it’s over. for some reason it reminds me of the song “last day of magic” by the kills (which i had stuck in my head when i finished it).
i remember when i first bought it; i was standing in barnes & noble deliberating between it and another book, and the last few times i’d gone book shopping i’d come away disappointed with the choices i made, but people had told me this was a good book… and let me tell you, it was not another one of those disappointments.
it was just… wow. it was really good. it made me laugh and catch my breath and think (imagine that). i really, really recommend it, if you’re looking for something to keep you from becoming one of those countless “now what?” gifs i keep seeing popping up on my dashboard, talking about summer vacation, that make me sort of sad for the person when i see them.
end gushing post about beautiful book.
