The Sentence | Louise Erdrich
post image
Pickpick

Catharsis (n) 1a : purification or purgation of the emotions (such as pity and fear) primarily through art
b : a purification or purgation that brings about spiritual renewal or release from tension
2 : elimination of a complex by bringing it to consciousness and affording it expression

That seems apt to explain The Sentence. A novel that was clearly cathartic for Erdrich, yet is equally cathartic for the reader. A truly fantastic read.

I am hopelessly behind in my #lmpbc reading. I‘m going to binge over the next couple of days. Good thing it‘s an easy read. And I just love AJ and all his crankiness.

Sorry for the delay, @TheBookHippie 🤦‍♀️ Boom! It‘s October. How did that happen?

I‘m curious who AJ is writing his book reviews to. Maybe I missed it in the beginning. Maybe it‘s yet to be revealed.

TheBookHippie No worries I have COVID and am delayed mailing mine out as well. Take your time. 1d
Maria514626 @TheBookHippie Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. 🤗 21h

Luckily, the book is starting out better than the ( unnecessary, don‘t waste your time) Introduction!
A short read - while I figure out what to read next!

This book made me laugh 😂 that is worth mentioning cos most of the time I choose hardcore emotional books which are tearjerker. So I loved this one . This book has its own fan base mostly because in one or the other way bookish people can relate with Nina. Though I felt it‘s little dramatic, Perfect for a light read.4.5⭐️#bookspinbingo

I loved the premise of the book, but it ultimately fell a little short of my expectations.

My main issue with the book is the pacing. It is very slow. Getting through the first half of the book was a struggle. Once I was about halfway through, the pace (luckily) picked up.
