For me, I found sheer sensory beauty in part one of this novel, specifically memories of domestic life, the forging of some compelling friendships, and a harrowing withdrawal from home. When all bound together they formed a universal story that made important connections to the real-life oppression of marginalized peoples. However, part two took me on a bit of a cartoonish journey that did not match the intriguing set-up and cohesion of part one. In the end, I am so pleased to be left with another exciting novel to revisit with you all.
