“We have always been here but it has thought us nothing. We still don’t know what we have forgotten, what it is we owe.”
I didn’t like this book. It started off well. I downloaded it from the library and while reading the first half I was sure I was going to buy it to add to my personal collection. But, then I got to the second half and the book went off the rails. I’m still not sure what happened in the end. The novel was only 288 pages. How the author was able to jam pack so much confusion in the last 100 or so pages is beyond me. I went into this book blind. Had I read the last section of the book’s synopsis where it mentions that, “this was a ghost story a terrifying murder mystery, a timely meditation on race, and a love letter to all the forgotten geniuses of American music,” I would have passed on it. So, I fully accept the blame. I have no issue with the author. Ghost stories are just not my cup of tea. If you’ve read this one let me know what you thought.
