The thing I enjoyed most about this book were the multiple times the author used opposites to describe the same thing/situation: "proof of my significance and so, inevitably, of my insignificance", "a piece of clothing off a rack is for a standard body, therefore for nobody, since no body is standard".
This was NOT my favorite book. I found it very hard to read and understand what was going on. It was less of a story and more character musings, not a problem in itself, but this one didn't grab me. The final 20 or so pages were the best -- I think a whole book could have been written on the relationship between the main character and Princess and that it could have been flushed out more directly.
