February 1862. The Civil War is less than one year old. The fighting has begun in earnest, and the nation has begun to realize it is in for a long, bloody struggle. Meanwhile, President Lincoln's beloved eleven-year-old son, Willie, lies upstairs in the White House, gravely ill. In a matter of days, despite predictions of a recovery, Willie dies and is laid to rest in a Georgetown cemetery. Newspapers report that a grief-stricken Lincoln returned to the crypt several times alone to hold his boy's body.

Definitely a different kind of writing which worked well for me in written form, but not in audio. There are numerous characters, most of whom play a tiny role in the overall story. There are three men who play the biggest role in the cemetery, the Reverend Everly Thomas, Roger Bevins III, and Hans Vollman. Almost everyone else, except Willie Lincoln, is a bit player. When listening to the audio, these bit players were incredibly distracting to me.

Saunders' ideas about the afterlife are fascinating and full of interesting conundrums. The bardo is a kind of netherworld where the dead are consigned for awhile. Some only stay for minutes, especially children. Others stay for years. Willie Lincoln's body is interred in a borrowed crypt which will serve as his resting place, presumably until the Lincoln family leaves Washington. Willie should be like other children whose soul quickly disappears, but for some reason he stays. This upsets some of the long time residents of the cemetery because a child's soul who doesn't go on is corrupted in horrible ways. So they have to convince Willie to go. Not an easy task as it turns out. ( )

A pretty easy read, with lots of (as the jacket copy will confirm) humanity in it. It was interesting to read this one not too long after reading Moore's Jerusalem, which deals with similar stuff with a hair more detail and fancy. ( )

Unlike anything I've ever read. ( )

I wanted to listen to this book because there are so many readers, 166, wow!! But the format of the book made audio difficult to understand. I almost gave up but other reviewers said it gets better after a while so I keep going.

This book reminds me of [b:The Whole Town's Talking|28953126|The Whole Town's Talking|Fannie Flagg|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1465650643s/28953126.jpg|49177757], which I truly enjoyed. LOVED it.

Ahhh, 41% and I can't continue. The dead are talking, but nothing made sense. ( )

Confusing reading. First 100 pages not really knowing where story was going. Interesting interpretation of Lincoln’s reaction to his son’s death. I also liked how Lincoln compares his son’s death with the decisions he made about the Civil War and those deaths. Also such variety in descriptions from real sources. Took awhile to understand stories of the various people from all walks of life stuck in the bardo. Weird how they all didn’t know they were already dead. ( )

I will never forget those solemn moments—genius and greatness weeping over the love's lost idol.
Having never loved or been loved in that previous place, they were frozen here in a youthful state of perpetual emotional vacuity; interested only in freedom, profligacy, and high-jinks, railing against any limitation or commitment whatsoever.
In truth, we were bored, so very bored, so continually bored.
Birds being distrustful of our ilk.
Any admiration we might once have felt for their endurance had long since devolved into revulsion.
