    1. From the first few pages - her technique has already developed and progressed from Honeycomb - look at how she moves from third to first person "When she turned out the gas the window spaces remained faintly alight with a soft light like moonlight. At the window she found a soft bluish radiance cast up from below upon the opposite walls and windows. It went up into the clear blue darkness of the sky. When she lay down the bed smelt faintly of dust. The air about her head under the sharply slopin [...]

    2. All that has been said and known in the world is in language, in words; all we know of Christ is in Jewish words; all the dogmas of religion are words; the meaning of words change with people’s thoughts.

It's interesting to read what she thinks of others and how she feels later in the book to hear their impressions of her.

    5. I recognize the importance of this novel, and there were parts that were genuinely really funny, but oh my god Miriam is infuriating.
