This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

Mixed feelings on this one. If I’m honest, I almost gave up after the first couple of chapters but I stuck with it and I guess I’m glad I did. It’s so lovely to read, lyrical, poetry almost, a glorious glimpse of letter-writing between enemies turned friends turned lovers. But I can’t say I really followed what was going on, what the story was, where they ended up, it sort of went over my head. It was a pleasure to actually read, but I don’t know if I got anything out of it.
