- ‘If along the way, something is gained, then something will also be lost.’ —pg. 56
I think this novel really shows us the effects of mental illness on everybody around them, including themselves. We see a glimpse into their lives as they are falling apart. For me, none of the characters really grabbed me and held on other than Min and she really wasn’t the focus of the story to me; the road trip was. For me, the story was okay but not great. For fans of Miriam Toews writing style, I’m sure they’d enjoy it more than I did.
