What a haunting, unforgettable portrait of a struggling nation of people. Though this is a novel, the fact that Louise Erdrich is of American Indian descent assures the reader that there is much truth in this compelling story.
Author of Love Medicine and The Beet Queen, her third, and finest novel to date...In it the author captures the passions, fears, and doom of a living people, and she does so with an ease that leaves the reader breathless.
Loved the imagery in the novel. Compelling characters.
This is a story about American Indians. The families in this book are tied together by their loves, lies and losses. Heartwrenching and heartwarming. Louise Erdrich captures the elegance of the language......she is my favorite author.
Creepy and interesting at the same time, one never can be sure if these disasters are the result of chance or if they are actually being done by Fleur Pillager.
I loved the flow of this novel and the characters were quite vividly drawn. Good read.
This is one of my favorite books of all time. Louise Erdrich is brilliant at creating characters that will fascinate you. I highly recommend Tracks, Love Medicine, and The Beet Queen!
This is another great novel by Louise Erdrich about the Native American life and struggles as their life was coming undone all around them when the white man continued to put their culture and even lives at stake. This is set in North Dakota and is a tale of passion and unrest. I love Erdrich's books!
Feminist Novel, had to read for Women Writers class
Couldn't get through this one...very disjointed plot and writing..mostly about Indian customs from a wide range of character narratives. You're not missing anything if you miss this one.
This was an interesting viewpoint of what it was like to be an individual native American during the early 1900s and what trials and hardships they faced.
I've liked some of her books but not necessarily this one. So so
I liked this book. But I never finished reading it. So I don't feel qualified to present a comprehensive review.
