Reading Status: Heard of it
I think this was supposed to be a rather popular novel although I don’t think I am personally that into all these kinds of love entanglement. Maybe next time, but not now. Anyway, this novel is supposed to portray a less idealistic form of love we often see in other novels. A bit of a spoiler in the tag, but SE basically means a “sad ending”, so it’s not a tragedy in the sense that someone dies, but the ending isn’t a happily ever after either.
