I couldn't discern the message. Should we try to change people's lives or settle for things as they are? No one came out happy in end, but I don't know to what purpose.
Read it twice now (re-reading it for my TASOK book club) and my initial impressions still stand. An amazing book- the writing itself, the descriptive style- I would use this in a creative writing class if i was teaching one. Lots has already been said, but having death as the narrator allows the book the freedom to be odd, without detracting at all from the tone and style of the story. Good, good stuff.
My introduction to Sarah Vowell came in the surprisingly engrossing documentary of They Might be Giants, "Giant - A Tale of Two Johns." I've also heard her reading her essays on "This American Life." I found her funny and intriguing. So I when I went to the library to get Assassination Vacation, I jumped at the chance to check out the audio version of the book. It's read by Vowell with famous guests (Conan O'Brien, Brad Bird, Catherine Keener and many more) bringing historical figures to life. I'm pretty sure that hearing the book in Vowell's unique voice adds to the experience. She not only takes us on a historical tour of the lives and deaths of Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley, she also gives us a glimpse into her own morbid psyche. The book is smart and thorough and full of hilarious zingers. Most important, it is tuned into to the parallels between history and current events. I enjoyed it during long walks across town. A worthwhile read.
just like other sheldon's books!surprising and somehow unrational ending!
