The Round House




This is the first time I read a novel by Louise Erdrich but it won't be the last. She's a beautiful writer.

The story is told through the eyes of thirteen-year-old Joe who is a Native American.

On a warm day in May his mom returns home after escaping from her rapist. This act changes everything for Joe. He's determined to find out who did it and bring him to justice.

The characters are finely drawn, the writing is exquisite, the Native American lore is interesting, and the action is nonstop. All ingredients for a great read!

Wish I had more time to read. I have never read the whole Anne frank book,just parts of it.
But I have been in the Anne frank house in Amsterdam and was very impressed.
You made it clear to me that I have to make time to start reading again.
Thanks,
Eddie
