Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders
post image
Mehso-so

I was uncertain about this book to begin with and still cant quite decide if I would designate it so-so or a pick. I found it quite emotionally comforting how it confronts issues relating to mortality and the style is certainly innovative. It's not something I'd ever pick normally but we read it with my book club and I was pleased I'd branched out #lincoln #lincolninthebardo

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

The Sellout: A Novel | Paul Beatty
post image

Day 22: #AwardWinner - #ReadingResolutions | #TBR |#ManBooker Prize winners:

📚 2017: #LincolnInTheBardo is a father-son story featuring Abraham Lincoln.

📚 2016: #TheSellout is a “biting satire about a young man's isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the SCOTUS. It challenges the sacred tenets of the US Constitution, urban life, the civil rights movement, the father-son relationship, and the holy grail of racial equality.”

ladyonequestion Both really good reads, especially The Sellout 1y
Book_devourer I enjoyedLincoln in the bardo about as much as I‘d enjoy purgatory. Get me out of here, quick! 1y
britt_brooke @Book_devourer Ha! I felt the same way. I read it in print, but apparently, I need to try the audio, so I might just out of curiosity of that full cast. 1y
Book_devourer @britt_brooke I tried the audiobook and it was confusing. The citations were particularly annoying 1y
britt_brooke @Book_devourer I just listened to the audio. Just not a fan. The cast was fantastic, but the style just doesn‘t work for me. Feels like he tried too hard to make it weird. 1y

Pickpick

For my first post, I have to go with one of my all-time favorites. A brilliant Faustian and surreal tale set amidst the Russian revolution. For any new fans of #LincolnInTheBardo, this has a similarly grim yet absurdist feel. Can't recommend enough.

DebinHawaii Welcome to Litsy! 🎉📚👍😀Hope you enjoy it here! 2y

LaLecture I‘m an exclamation mark but the description doesn‘t fit at all. The comma-description sounds much more like me actually. 2y
amvs1111 I got the same! Not super detail-oriented though 🤔 2y
[DELETED] 853593837 I got exclamation mark too but the description is as wrong as wrong can be about me as I'm not an extrovert I'm an ISFJ, I hate social gatherings and my dad's nickname for me is "The Eternal Pessimist" ? 2y

Back to this for awhile. It's s quiet day here, so I figured I'd try to make some progress on something I'd already started! I'm still not really sure how I feel about it, but I'll keep trucking! #lincolninthebardo #georgesaunders
