    Hardcover ¼ Abandon Me PDF/EPUB ↠ abandon ebok, Abandon Me PDFI thought maybe the book title was being nice and giving me a little hint that it was saying “abandon me” Believe me I thought about it But here’s why I stayed put One reviewer said it was sort of like The Chronology of Water it wasn’t I wanted to see if it would get any better it didn’t It had tons of gushy reviews at the beginning of the book I don’t get it The language was sometimes seductive So let’s go with the positive here Yes the language is amazing lyrical and intense Some of the time in fact I was just mesmerized Febos speaks frankly of longing jealousy and trust which pulled me in And she has some interesting insights though honestly I don’t think I could appreciate them because a lot of the time I was annoyed CUT Uh oh this is one of THOSE reviews where I’ve finished the book and feel all huffy Complaint City is about to open its gates Then I open the book again to check out a quote and damn Beauteous language and keen insig
