I want to give the rating first so you can read it now, unless you really want to read my review. The non-fiction section of this book is 5 out of 5; the fiction is 2 out of 5 so this averages to 3.5 out of 5 cups of tea. It’s amazing and even though I disliked the stories I still gave a high rating so this should say how much I enjoyed the book in general. Do not read the full summary. Read from the Opposite of Loneliness essay to the end of the book. Then decide if you loved the book or not. Finally, go and read the forewords and the acknowledgements. Bonus: I made a playlist for it. You’re welcome. 😉 https://play.spotify.com/user/musicperson221/playlist/1sJojMoxl6xsRqVab4CLFV Continue reading
