I'm all over the place with this one. I was really for it. What I believed to be intricate writing and interesting about a scenario I've not read about until the last 40% turned into a very slow-paced snooze fest.

It has time-travelling, and a plot that turns out to make sense. I wasn’t really into it at first, but loved the ending.

After about a year of hearing my friend Michelle rave about her favorite book, I decided to give it a read so see what all the fuss was about.

I really enjoyed the journey this book takes its reader on. Mandel successfully executes an emphasis on the act of reading this book and the realizations that happen along the way, rather than her characters' ultimate destination.

It's intellectual and well written with clever lyrical prose. The pacing is super interesting and unusual, so it takes a minute to get used to. It's not very action heavy, and most everything is implied, which creates some tension and a sense of foreboding throughout the novel without the characters or narrator really saying anything.
I found myself constantly trying to draw connections and figure out how things were related between the past and present storylines. This book very much lends itself to analysis and seems to be asking the reader to draw their own startling conclusions about what it means to be alive, as good literature ought to do.

​The implied and explicit statements are about human life, civilization, time, and whether “survival is inadequate”. Mandel plays with these ideas by illustrating the suddenness and sometimes meaninglessness of death and the circle of life.
