I loved loved loved this book, I really did. Despite having no plot and making no sense, despite how irritating the second-person interjections could have been, I really think it's one of my favourite books that I read this year. I read it on a bus in the snow. Wearing white mittens with grey knitted hearts on them. And that memory is more important than the book itself. Again another book that really highlighted for me what books mean for the readers.
