Tinkers - Paul Harding I feel bad giving this two stars, but this book simply did not do it for me. It was dense and depressing. There was little to no enjoyment, which I suppose is expected in a book about a man dying, but even the flashbacks were all sad and frustrating. I give the author credit for his treatment of the theme of death, but for whatever reason, I found myself frustrated with this book and was not impressed by the prose.
