What Are We Reading?: The Unit, Ninni Holmqvist
5/5 Profound Life Epiphenies
The sad fact is, you can't have everything. Confront it by reading Ninni Holmqvist's The Unit and ask yourself: how do you imbue your life with value? Do you experience or create, working as an individual or a force? Are you invested in a job or family, drawing authority from those around you? Or are you valued by how well you conform to what society says you must be. An extremely enjoyable and thoughtful read. Told from a distinctly feminine view, some male readers may connect less well than the female; but if you have ever felt sidelined as your friends build their new lives, then this is a sorrowful and enchanting story you'll love.
