4/5 Stars.

What an interesting, fulfilling read! This is the kind of book that you can easily devour in one sitting in about an hour and a half, which is pretty cool considering its incredible depth.

I don’t want to reveal much of the plot, because I think it’s much more satisfying to go into it knowing very little. Here’s what I’ll say: written by a neuroscientist, it’s a surreal, funny, introspective and deeply affecting tale about self-discovery and the lasting power of love. Even better, it’s inspired by T.S. Eliot’s poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (if you couldn’t already tell from the title).
