However, the novel is about all things dark. At first it felt edgy and exciting but once you read about 5 different characters who are all in their own unique messed up scenario you start to feel a bit less interested in the darkness as a whole. She never departs from just telling stories that all have some messed up motivation behind him. I wouldn't recommend the book to anyone unless they really have a flair for this kind of writing and a stomach for some dark topics.
I think this book was very well written, I do. But in some cases, the stories were overstuffed with pretty words and became hard to follow at points.
It wasn't a horrible book, by any means. I loved parts and hated parts. I wouldn't recommend it to someone, unless they were ready to dive into a deep book of artsy stories and scattered thoughts.
