Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders (28/52)

Everywhere I turn, this book is being feted with praise and awards, so I had to try it out. The narrative voice is original, organic and fitting the style of a short story author. Ghosts hanging in the in-between world describing their lives and the intersection of Lincoln’s visit to his son’s tomb is powerful. However, there just wasn’t enough there to capture me completely. I wanted more drama. It was expertly written, there is no doubt about that.
