"I knew it all along. The heart of the world is blue."
This wasn't what I expected.
I’m feeling a bit like a prude but this was unexpectedly vulgar for me? I came in thinking it would be about the color blue, grief, lovesickness, love, loss, etc. Those elements are present but so is a lot of mention of dick and pussy and sex and I was completely surprised. I wanted something soft and melancholic and that is definitely not what I found. The melancholy was there but it was being chased by madness.
Another thing that surprised me was the philosophical elements present. Lots of Plato and other philosophers are mentioned.
I did enjoy her prose, her descriptions, and feelings about color.
