It follows six characters (three boys and three girls) from childhood and then through their entire lives, but every chapter skips multiple years, so it kinda goes in phases such as before any school, then during school, then college, and so on.
At first it seems really bizarre and incoherent, and the writing remains abstract and flowery throughout the whole thing, but by the time you get to the end of the book, everything basically comes together and makes sense and you realize that it's actually a pretty simple story, but told in a very complex way and with a lot of different themes.
Really its just a story about what it's like for the different people to grow up and eventually get old and the different loves and losses and general feelings/perspectives about life they end up having, with a sort of twist at the very end.
It's a somewhat sad book but also with a lot of beauty in it.
