The short version: Not enough Jean.
This is really well put together, with some lovely scenes, and some outright beautiful writing at moments. There are laughed out loud moments masterfully blended into bleak scenes. And yet.
I find myself easily giving 4 stars to this book while doubting I’ll pick up the next one.
I had two more complaints when I sat down, but I’ve forgotten them.
Anyway, this was well written and all, just not about a journey I’m excited to continue.
