*chef’s kiss*

I was nervous to begin reading this book. Not because it’s a 700+ page book but because everyone loves it so much and I was worried I wouldn’t feel the same way. 

 In fact it’s been sitting on my bookshelf for a couple of months now; however, 

But seriously! This book is a beautiful exercise in grief and while there were several very predictable plot points I finished the reading feeling very satisfied.
