Good read, I couldn't put it down. It deserved the distinction of Finalist for the National Book Award. The other book of hers I really loved was the Master Butcher's Singing Club. Others of hers I have tried and they weren't my cup of tea. This one stood out.

This is an author I especially enjoy. Her books are unique most are set in the Midwest and some, like The Round House, on Native American reservations. Antone Basil Joe Coutts Jr. is 13 in North Dakota in 1988. His father is a judge in the tribal court, and his mother Geraldine is a tribal enrollment specialist. Joe (he chose the name when he was 6) spends his time with his best friend, Cappy, and friends Zach and Angus riding their bikes and beginning to think about girls. Joe likes to read his fathers books on Indian law and listen to stories by his grandfather, Mooshum. When Joes mother Geraldine is violently raped, the aftermath takes them on a search for answers and revenge. Its a vivid look at life on a reservation at that time, and the laws and history they have to contend with.

This is my second Louise Erdrich book. I love how her writing flows and her stories are so interesting. They are not your everyday stories that get stuck in boredom. This book is told through the eyes of a 13 year old boy and the love he has for his family and friends as he tries to make things right for his mom. It is an interesting and intriguing book.
