  • Death and unfinished business

    Wonderful book that mixes history with fantasy. Set on the night of the death of Abraham Lincoln’s son, Willie, this deals with death and the unfinished businesses of life, told from the perspective of historical accounts and the stories of, for want of a better word, ghosts. It’s sad and funny and very human, and written in a short, punchy, engaging style that meant I raced through it in a few days. Highly recommend.

  • Living dead

    A unique and startlingly clever book. The interconnect of ghosts, Lincoln and the Civil war creates an insight into those minds and times in a truly unusual way. The poetry of the varied voices is sublime.

  • Different but interesting

    An original way of writing. Once into the style I enjoyed the book. Saunders certainly has done a lot of research. I learnt much about Lincoln.

  • Clever retelling of history

    You will find this novel confusing nd enthralling in equal measure - fascinating method to retell history, surreal depictions of the dead.
