grav_ity: (books 2011)
This isn't a book I loved, but I did enjoy it quite a bit. I think this is because the book is outside my preferred genre, but does spend a lot of time on topics and themes I like.

Anyway, The Careful Undressing of Love is a book you relax into. For the first few pages, you're picky: trying to sort Haydu's magical world from the real one, and then it just takes you over. It's weird until it's not, and then it's an examination of love and legacy and family, and the things girls do when we back them into corners and then blame them for being there in the first place.

Haydu's feminism shines on every page, and I was caught between wanting to linger, and wanting to turn the pages even faster.
