Day 23 - #NotSoFavoriteAuthor
After reading this book, I must say that satirical fiction is not for me. I found this book very difficult to read. The words did not flow and I really was not interested in what the author was trying to relate. There are a lot of good reviews for this book so some people did benefit from reading it. Not sure if I could honestly recommend it as I wouldn't want to put anyone else through the pain it was for me to read.

Scochrane26 He‘s a little weird. I liked Lincoln in the bardo much more. 3w

Lincoln in the Bardo was unlike any narrative I‘ve ever read. The weaving of eye witness accounts and fictional dialog from the dead about Lincoln and the loss of his son was intriguing. There were multiple themes dealing with life, death, civil war, racism, denial, and depression that unraveled the story quickly. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

A house on the park. He'd seen it a million times. And now was in it. It smelled of man sweat and spaghetti sauce and old books. Like a library where sweaty men went to cook spaghetti. #tenthofdecember #georgesaunders

“It wasn‘t fair. It happened to everyone supposedly but now it was happening to specifically to him. He‘d kept waiting for special dispensation, but no. Something/someone bigger than him kept refusing. You were told the big something/someone loved you especially but in the end you saw it was otherwise. The bit something/someone was neutral. Unconcerned. When it innocently moved, it crushed people.”

Tenth of December: Stories | George Saunders

“To keep him alive she started piling on him various things from life, things smelling of a home—coats, sweaters, a rain of flowers [...]. He was piled high with clothes. He was like the bed at a party on which they pile the coats.”

This is the best goddamn simile I have ever read.

I‘m really liking this book but am still confused with the style. There seems to be no pattern in chapters as to when the ghosts are talking then to descriptions of the night in question. Did anyone else come across this problem? Or maybe you figured it out? I heard the audio was confusing as well...

Wilkie I started reading this last week and put it down after 3 pages. I still want to read it but I want to give it my full attention! 1y
emilyhaldi I listened to the audio and was constantly confused 😂 1y
Ashley_Nicoletto I tried to read this book multiple times in print and audio and I quit each time. It was so confusing. I could never keep track of the story line. 1y
Graywacke I listened on audio. I had to spend a little time figuring it out, but once I did, it was terrific. (Figuring out they kept saying op. cit. took an embarrassing long time). 1y

#GeorgeSaunders always knows how to punch me in the gut, rip out my heart, and make me feel way more than I‘m comfortable with. And also cackle like an insane banshee. Those are all very good things.
