    3.5/5 Rounded up to 4.I adored this book. It was so quirky and wonderful and at the heart so very, very, Wilde-esque. Ken is a young man who loves Oscar Wilde, lists, Haikus, his mom and his friends. But is there more to life? His world expanded the day he meets Ran, a young man with a Dorian Gray v...

What would become a theme through this book is how it never really unpacks its many themes. The aforementioned cla...

    Well it certainly was different. Stocked with poetry and dystopian prophecy. The first half had meet cute, romance, intrigue. The second had despair and longing and oppression. The concluding half had...nope, only two halves, people. It was quick but I can’t say good after Ran ran. It could hav...
