"Dr Lucas lent her a book once, but she had a hard time taking it in ... she'd talk and talk with the doctor and couldn't convey anything to him."
This sums up my experience of reading the first 18 pages. My eyes glide over the sentences without really touching them; the individual words register, but I can't parse any meaning from them, and when I reread what I've read seconds ago, I feel no familiarity, as if the words fell into a black hole, ⬇️
I toyed, briefly, with persisting, but just felt vexed, so I'm DNFing without regret.
