packetcat reads 2022 Week 25 – The Book of Form and Emptiness by Ruth Ozeki

Pages: 638
Purchased from: Kobo

I picked this book up because I saw it on sale on the front page of the Kobo store and I am glad I did. A fantastic tale of magical realism combined with dealing with the issues of mental health, parenting, trauma and just being a teenager. The author handles all these issues with the care they deserve and some of the scenes in this book definitely made cry.

Oh and also this book is a bit of a meta narrative about books, I won’t spoil further but it is very well done.
