Sorry, but this was the worst book I ever tried to read. I actually returned it after reading for about 30 minutes. I cannot understand why it is highly rated.

This was not a read that I enjoyed. The format was so disturbing that I gave up trying to determine who was who in the Bardo - the place just beyond death. The author appeared to be caught up in creating numerous characters and projecting how they would react to the death of Lincolln's son and to their existence there Some people may find the book interesting so it's my suggestion that anyone so inclined read the book for themselves and make their own decision about its value.
