This is a hard one. I read a lot, and I love so many books. So I’m going to limit this to a book I read and loved this year.
And the winner is…
Lincoln in the Bardo
by George Saunders
- Innovative story telling. One of the most unique books I’ve ever read.
- Incredibly moving and insightful: dealing with issues of death, mourning, and the after life.
- The prose reads more like poetry at times.
- Historical fiction: one of my favorite genres.
- I couldn’t put it down.
