  1. This book had so much buzz in the UK when it was published that I was disappointed by it when I read it about a year after the fact. I guess my expectations were super high and I thought it was a “nice” story but nothing particularly special.

    • Have you read her debut, When God Was a Rabbit? I thought that was better (in fact I loved it) because it was a good mix of happy and sad and funny.

      I think this was a case of reading it at the right time and place (travelling, needed something engaging but not taxing). Very much reminded me of an abbreviated versions of The Heart’s Invisible Furies (again, another book I loved) – if you haven’t read that, seek it out. Glorious.
