Book Review: Comfort Me with Apples by Catherynne M. Valente

Overall rating: 4.5/5★
Writing: 5/5★, There are some beautiful, haunting phrases in here!
Plot: 4/5★, It's more character-led than a plot I'd say. But it flowed really well.
Characters: 4.5/5★I doubt I could ever give a novella a 5/5 for characters just because there is very little time to explore them. But this is close, mostly because the characters are bizarre so they aren't meant to be very deep. It works here!
Would I reread?: Yup, definitely

This is very unique. It's one of the few books that I think really stands on its own best if you know very little going in. Though I will say that I do believe some Christians may have issues with this. So, if you are very religiously Christian I would pass and avoid possible upset. For everyone else that is a fan of unsettling horror, definitely read this! It was fun although a short ride!
