Sweet and melancholy and a little predictable; I don't get the hype

3 stars

I picked this book up because it is so popular and gets so many rave reviews, and I was somewhat disappointed. I enjoyed the book, it is sweet and melancholy. But it was also unnecessary long, often slow, the character development wasn't particularly deep or nuanced, and the writing didn't strike me as particularly brilliant.

I don't regret reading it, but I don't get what all the hype is about.
