Loved this book! A great mix of essays on both intriguing and/or timely matters and current events. Received a finish copy in the post also and couldn't wait to discuss it with others!

I loved this book. I will definitely be referencing and recommending this one for a long time.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for access to the ARC.

This book is exactly what it says it is, which is essays on a broad verse of topics. I throughly enjoyed some of the essays involving fantasy, memory, and music. The book was written very well and was easy to digest, yet still provided new or fun/ interesting information. I even had a few laughs. It is both factual and personal experience. Let me leave you with one of my highlighted quotes:

“What is memory but a battleground, a bordered terrain between two versions of the truth?”

I do recommend this book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for the opportunity to read it early!
