Freebie Flop - The Coffins of Little Hope by Timothy Schaffert

The Coffins of Little HopeThe Coffins of Little Hope by Timothy Schaffert
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book meandered like the incoherent musings of someone with advanced Alzheimer's and just didn't really seem to have much of a point. I initially was attracted to it because the author was from Nebraska and he set the novel in Nebraska - my home state - but it really didn't live up to expectations. While the descriptions of rural Nebraska were pretty much on par, the narration felt too forced, perhaps because it was a male middle aged author trying to write from an elderly woman's point of view. Overall, this was not my style.
