This book is full of bad allegories. Just deeply unfortunate, with implications that are very not good.

Enjoyed every moment of this, and it will hold up to multiple readings as the story has so much to it in implication as well as the words themselves (which are especially lovely just to listen to in KHS’ sections full of slant rhyme- absolutely stellar work by both author and reader). AA’s versatility in this production is impressive, and the texture of emotion in her voice anchor the experience. It’s rare that I come across a novel in which the sounds and rhythm are so poetic. This is a thoroughly composed, considered work.
