There wasn't anything particularly insightful about this book, but the conversations between Nanapush and Margaret over his childhood nemesis made it worthwhile. The love felt between the two of them, as old as they were, was evident, regardless of the bickering.

Most of us know Louise Erdrich for her bestseller The Beet Queen. In this novel she follows a Native American woman seeking revenge for the loss of her land and way of life

One of the dullest books I've read in a long time. Very bored; kept forgetting who was who. Not my cup of tea. I beleive the reviews were misleading.

Every Erdrich book I read is my favorite. No exception with Four Souls.....I loved every word. Rich with American Indian heritage and rich with characters' emotions.

The fact that I am willing to part with one of my favorite author's books, and a hardcover to boot, speaks volumes. I wasn't crazy about this one at all.

This book had strong female characters spanning 3 generations. The juxtaposition of the Native American and the "mainstream" American culture is fascinating and full of unexpected turns. Very lyrical prose and an original, well-told story.
