One Sentence Review
This book made me feel like I was caught in a swarm of doves (or at least what I assume being caught in a swarm of doves would feel like: furious, violent, whirling) and also like I was a part of something unavoidable and grounded, which I previously thought were three opposite feelings so I am now reconsidering that assumption.
