“I say she was a lady because a lady is a fancier kind of woman, and the dress was as fancy as you could imagine, long and luxurious and the liveliest yellow with black bits on the edges. It wasn‘t a dress you could have done anything useful in. It was a dress made to get in the way. It was, however, a very good dress for lounging in and looking at people. And her eyes were doing a very intense job of looking.”

I put off reading this even tho everyone said it was amazing cause I don‘t normally like distopian but this was such a perfect novel I forgot it was a genre I don‘t like. The way time slipped around and everyone‘s stories unravelled was gorgeously unusual but never ‘look at me I‘m being clever‘. Compassionate, imaginative, unflinching but dreamy, so detailed but so large scale, everything felt so significant but never pretentious. Incredible

Cathythoughts Lovely review ❤️I read it last year ... beautiful book, I love too that Shakespeare is a part of it 2d
ChaoticMissAdventures Her new book comes out soon, it is a stand alone, completely different, set in the 90's but it has a couple of the same characters! 2d
Yoshi-and-a-book Nice review 👍 2d

This is a re-read for me, and I‘m still in awe of how Mandel ties so many threads together at the end. I‘ve read this in print and in audiobook forms. I prefer the print- it was a little easier for me to keep track of everyone.

sudi I loved this one too. I'm excited to read The Glass Hotel next, can't wait for it to release. 2d

A beach trip with my BFF and we coincidentally both brought a book. So we ended up reading side by side in the sun. 🌊🌴☀️🕶
