Convince us to read the book: The plot of this book was a bit slower than I like, but still interesting the majority of the time and well planned out. The character development was truly great and the metaphors that went along with the main character were beautifully crafted. I did question how realistic one character of the book was. This character was a raging feminist and very public about it which I don't believe would have been accepted during this time period.
Memorable or Forgettable: The whole plot made the book memorable and how it was executed.
Cover: The cover was beautiful and related so so so well to the book. Every time I looked at the cover I would notice another detail that directly symbolized the book.
