Dannie s character Dannie s character never felt real to me I actually forgot her name until another character woulds character Dannie s character never felt real to me I actually forgot her name until another character would it Constantly discussing her food choices and commenting on the weather seemed like tropes the author used to make Dannie s character feel real but these elements didn t add any depth Serle also uses food to show how Dannie transforms ie she is going to change by ordering something different from her norm It also didn t feel natural the way she was talking about NYC it was almost like reading a tourist s perspective of the cityOnto the narrative There was way too much of Dannie discussing her issues
