Word of the day: "contronym" - a word with two meanings that are each other's reverse: eg "cleave" means both "to sever" & "to bind together"; "ravel" means both to "tangle up" & "to disentangle". Also "sanction", "bolt", etc. AKA an "entiantodrome", an "addad" or a "Janus-word".

It can't be easy to share so many qualities with the greatest film ever made! But SJ Watson keeps the pages turning in this thriller with some moving insight into what it means to love someone.
