Everyone needs to listen to this book. Seriously not only is it amazing, with a phenomenal narrator, but the story is so important and relevant to the world right now.

I loved this story. There is so much going on. A legend of a girl centuries ago, a modern refugee story, the trials of travel and trust while female. Above all, the magic of family and our histories.

This is a great option for #readharder2019 task 18 too.

Amazing descriptions in this book. It‘s a bit long, but I intend to finish it for Book Club on Thursday.

#bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

10k steps (did an extra round of the supermarket to make it 😂), had to do an escalator but I walked so doesn‘t count as taking one I‘ve decided, and my best gym sesh so far!

Finished Sympathy and got over half way through Salt Path.

I love this challenge! Bit of a lonely evening for me otherwise but I feel so proud and connected with all you guys, working on this and starting my notebook has made my day

Caterina Great job!! This challenge has been great for community for me too, especially since I'm between degrees and jobs right now and in recovery from surgery. 😊 Love your handwriting by the way, it's very old-fashioned-talented-poet-y. 😍 1mo

Not totally what I was expecting, but this was an amazing character portrait of a bizarre, unpleasant but empathic and recognisable person. I‘d call it a state of the nation novel but it‘s not about one nation, a state of the Internet novel? I rarely feel like novels get social media right, it‘s easy to feel lecturing or cringy, but I thought this really got it right. Instagram was probably my favourite character.

saresmoore Excellent review. I loved this book for just the reasons you mention. I feel like she nailed that dreamlike discomfort that social media brings to our lives. 1mo
Cinfhen Here‘s another suggestion for #socialmediafocus @Kathrin #Booked2019 1mo
Kathrin @Cinfhen This ones sounds good and it's available as audiobook on Scribd. Win win!! 1mo
Cinfhen Oh good!! I‘ve seen good reviews. A few others have read it for #booked2019 @Kathrin 1mo
