Tinkers. Paul Harding.

TinkersTinkers by Paul Harding

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book takes its structure from a period of eight days when a character, George Washington Crosby, is lying in bed, dying. It encompasses his sense impressions and experiences in his deathbed, his wandering memories, and the stories of his father and grandfather.

Unfortunately, George, supposedly the central character, lacks interest and focus. It left the people in my book group wondering what this was. Was it actually a novel or was it something else, and if something else, what, exactly?

It wasn't bad, and it was very short. I found some very interesting sections, but they weren't enough to recommend the book as a whole.
