“I just want to talk with you directly. Without you bringing in every other stranger in the world who might have an opinion about me.”

worse, you’re not doing anything interesting anymore. You’re not seeing anything, saying anything. The weird paradox is that you think you’re at the center of things, and that makes your opinions more valuable, but you yourself are becoming less vibrant. I bet you haven’t done anything offscreen in months. Have you?”

think you think that sitting at your desk, frowning and smiling somehow makes you think you’re actually living some fascinating life. You comment on things, and that substitutes for doing them. You look at pictures of Nepal, push a smile button, and you think that’s the same as going there. I mean, what would happen if you actually went?

Ненавиджу погані кінцівки, але чого ще можна чекати від тупої головної героїні 😬😂 Сюжет книги - супер, кількість питань для роздумів зашкалює, рекомендую.
