did not like it
bookshelves: book-club, fiction, waste-of-time

This was one of those reads that make me wonder why I’m in a book club at all. What disappointed me was that the book was about a 100 yr old resident of Virginia City who was going to tell us the history of the area. Instead, it was his story of escaping slavery, running around with Mark Twain, and saving the day at every turn. The book ends when the narrator is about 30 yrs old - what about the other 70 years!? The characters are all boring, bland, and predictable.
