"Incoherent" is a wee bit strong, don't you think? I found the structure flawed, sure, but Nalo's writing is engrossing. As I wrote in the review:

"Hopkinson is unabashedly ambitious this time out, and that approach shows throughout -- from the structural flourishes and abrupt scene shifts to the meticulous research and word selection on every page. A lot of love and sweat went into the crafting of The Salt Roads, but the end result is not equal to the sum of its parts."

Which I think is an honest assessment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Salt Roads to anyone, because it's well worth reading. But that doesn't mean it isn't flawed. :-)
