A beautiful book
I adore this book.
I picked it up by chance and I was absolutely delighted to carry this book everywhere I went for a whole week after my timely purchase of it - thank god for the random cafes I go to which eventually bore me, giving me time with this precious piece.
I was afraid to read it too fast because I didn't want it to end, but my hunger for it eventually led to me finishing it and I just kept rereading it afterwards.
This book is about human traits given a life of their own. They have their backstory, they have parents, they have lovers and they have a future written for them.
Of all the characters, I adore Hope and Purpose the most. Purpose for the sole reason that it is the single thing I've been looking for the most in my life, and Hope because I need it very desperately now more than ever.
It is a beautiful piece and I wish there were more to devour, and now I'll be keeping an eye out of Alvin Pang's books.
