  1. Rascal

    Wow. This book was… kind of amazing. It took me a few pages to get into, mostly because I hadn’t gone in knowing it would be sort of that the story was being told to me more than I was reading it, but once I figured that out, wow.

    On the surface, this is a really… wispy? is that the word I want? sort of tale that feels reminiscent of sitting around a campfire with your friends late at night, and one of them starts relating a tale they heard as a child to you. There is this feeling of perpetuality that permeates every corner of this book. The past, the present, and the future are all happening at the same time, and we readers are merely along for the ride.

    Deeper than that, it’s a story of love and loss and heartbreak and forgiveness, and how even things that happened between just two people can affect and shape the world around them. How feelings of betrayal can linger, and how it’s possible to hurt others by trying to not hurt them at all. Above all, I think it’s a story about love that extends across time and space, and how forgiveness can be difficult but a worthy endeavor.

    I would have read 100,000 words of this and never put the book down. I mean that. It is so unique as to be a breath of fresh air in a market that has been somewhat saturated with the same story over and over. This is different. This is new. And that is probably the highest honor I can give a book: I hadn’t heard this one before.
