I loved it too!
I was not a fan
Could not follow the narration even after reading the blurb on the book jacket.
I could not follow it. Probably one of those books I will pick up later on and it will synch.
Loved the acceptance speech!
I loved it too! For those who find it hard to follow: think of it as a Ken Burns documentary on paper.
I thought of that when I was reading it. Wondered if Burns was one of Saunders’ influences. I read that one of his influences was Spoon River Anthology.
It was really strange. I’ve never read anything like it. But I enjoyed it.
I liked it ok, but I’ve heard it’s much easier to love if you listen to it.
possibly. but definitely not for me. I found it really difficult to follow and comprehend via listening.
well, there you go. I haven’t tried listening to it myself. I was just glad I finished it by reading it. Several people on this site seemed to rave about the audio book, but as with most things, it’s probably just a matter of personal taste, especially with such a strange book.
I hated that book. I must be an idiot.
Reading is always subjective.
Loved it as an audiobook
I listened to it and read it at the same time. It was like no other book I’ve ever read
I also hated it but have heard that the audio book is much better… I do love George Saunders, so I would be willing to give this one another go.
Me too. Reading it now. Love it, that is. (I’d heard Saunders in several interviews talking about it before I started reading it and I knew the concept so am just whizzing through it much to my surprise as it’s unique in the way it’s written.).
