This is sort of an odd book. The characters have arcs and there is definitely a story here, but there isn’t an obvious conclusion. There isn’t just one climax. Even very late in the book, I wasn’t sure where all the threads were going. This isn’t to say I disliked the book. It’s just not like anything I’ve read in a very long time. It’s more literary than anything I’ve read in a while, if that makes sense.
