Many will disagree with me on this and that's ok but let me just say that what is painted as her vulnerability and uniqueness in this story just came across as manipulative and dependant for me. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. Because to me, it felt like unwrapping a beautifully wrapped present only to find an empty box underneath.

and olivie blake just is just such a talented author and the sentences she is able to string together, about really dark and hard to talk about things, really resonated with me in a way other words just never have before. Blake brings Chicago alive here, taking us through the streets, the classrooms of the University of Chicago where Aldo teaches and into the absolutely amazing Art Institute where Regan works as docent. This was my first Olivie Blake and I will certainly read others, it is a book without any fantastical elements though still is undeniably unlikely as it sounds given the negatives i just listed, there are some true moments of beauty in this. But most notably, this sashaying of perspectives is like a needle threading the two together until, at the end, we witness them as a seamless whole viewed from the outside with a conversation entirely narrated of he said and she said instead of a duality of perspective. i know this might sound awfully selfish, but if i could, i would keep this book to myself forever and ever and never let anyone approach it.

i found myself looking forward to hearing their thoughts on different theories and ideas and learning something new. This was so beautiful, so heart-wrenching, and not to sound corny on main but I feel like a new person after reading this perfection.What begins as romantic starts to look like a mental health spiral, and what comes easily at first is now fraught with fear and uncertainty, especially in Regan. the writing style felt pretentious to me at first; how dialogues switch from being in first person i to being in third person she or him. I started this book the moment it landed at my door expecting to laugh and cry and love two flawed humans who were lucky enough to find and understand each other. Olivie lives in Los Angeles with her husband and new baby, where she is generally tolerated by her rescue pit bull. I can kind of see why some people love and praise this book so much, but for me personally, it was a huge miss.
