This is my second Eimear McBride book. She writes in this stream of consciousness style, reminds me of Virginia Woolf. You have to really pay attention when you read or you will get lost. I didn't find myself as emotionally invested in this one as I was with The Lesser Bohemians. It is also less challenging to read than The Lesser Bohemians, but still takes some mental work. I found it lovely and stimulating. Love what she does with words.
