It is fairly minimalist but with vivid, powerful imagery and original, distinct characters. One of the best books of the year!

Could also be titled "the history of love." It has changed the way I view humanity in the most compassionate, loving way possible. This book approaches answering the question "what the heck is wrong with everyone?"
