I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

LINCOLN IN THE BARDO by George Saunders

Lincoln in the Bardo - George Saunders

Interesting way to look at death.  It took me 80 pages to get into the book then I enjoyed it.  I also had the wrong Lincoln, which did not help at the beginning.  I liked how the historical records were interwoven into the story with the ghosts.  I also liked how Vollmer and Blevins wanted what was best and right for Willie.  They were funny at times.  The three bachelors and their hats were comic relief.  I liked how we readers got to learn more about the cemetery inhabitants as they tell their stories in their own words.  Some are very quick.  Others linger.  Not what I expected but worth reading.
