After a prolonged period of procrastination and re-reading Perks of Being a Wallflower and/or Harry Potter (including a failed attempt to read Love in the Time of Cholera – seriously, Ted Mosby, why is it your favourite book?), I am thoroughly enjoying Open. I had my inhibitions about the book initially but it has grown on me – definitely. To know that there are people out there whose heads are also as swarmed by uncontrollable thoughts and feelings as mine, I feel a tad bit better. His brutal honesty and clarity in expression are things I am consuming with great care.

“Destiny has better things to do than count ATP points.” Amen.
