24 books finished in 2017: Song of the Shank

24 books finished in 2017

This book was beautiful and immersive, and I enjoyed the journey we went on. But I was disappointed by the ending.  I think I was mistaken in reading the praise for the book – they said Faulkner, and I heard Steinbeck. Those are two very different styles, and it explains a lot of my disappointment. (I was expecting everything to come together in a painful and beautiful resolution like East of Eden. Instead…I think someone was murdered. It was confusing.)
