I love all thos behind the scenes stuff. You'd think it would ruin the magic, but it just makes it more extensive. It still seems magically that they can accomplish what they do. #5-2023

The Painted Drum: A Novel | Louise Erdrich

I really liked this story. A slow pace read, character driven with stories within the story. Some expressions were beautiful. Faye‘s mother is half Indian. They are very close and they have a business to sell antique articles. She discovered this painted drum which apparently has healing powers. The story is around the history of this drum, secrets will be revealed. The story is so much full of traditions, beliefs. Apparently is part of a series⬇️

Gissy I don‘t know if this one is going to work for some readers but definitely worked for me. I want to read more about this culture and I will try the first book in the series 4/4.5⭐️

Read at the beginning of this month. This book was like a tv soap opera. A lot of drama with many family secrets, everyone deceived someone😳and everything was connected. I liked Guillermo character, a sculpture so intense in his emotions. I think the ending was a little too convenient, cheesy. Noah was lucky at the end (no spoiler🤷🏽‍♀️) but Noah‘s anguish was so sad. That scene with his dad😢Oscar just made me laugh☺️ 3.5/3.8⭐️

Starting this palate cleanser. Much needed after such an intense read :cough:Babel:cough: I‘m reading these in publication order not chronologically so this is book #5 for me!

Couldn‘t wait to read a 2023 published novel, and this one looked good. Didn‘t work for me, though. The narrator did the protagonist voice OK, but all the other voices were just horrible. The story was shown through different viewpoints, so you immediately knew what was going to happen, there weren‘t many secrets at all. I did like the main protagonist, Harry. This is the first of the series, will I tried the next? Perhaps.
