The Round House | Louise Erdrich
post image

It‘s been a while since I‘ve devoured an entire book in one day, but I couldn‘t stop listening to this.

My second by Erdrich, and I think it‘s safe to say I‘m a fan. Very well-written, powerful coming-of-age story of a Native American boy trying to deal with the horrible rape of his mom. This story is devastating, but also touching, funny, and beautiful, and it packs a major punch.

My #indigenousauthor book for #Booked2019 ✔️

In this poetry collection Vermette focuses on rivers and on being Metis. Rivers are constant yet changing, mixing and growing. The Metis belong and miss what is gone and going. These poems are spare, most lines are fewer than 4 words. But the words are powerful. I heard about this book on the @ReadingEnvy podcast. #nativecanadian #metis

Cinfhen A lot of people are reading this book by the same author and loving it 1w

AudreyMorris @Cinfhen I do want to read her novel, I really am into novels more than poetry, but I was feeling motivated. And poetry is usually quicker and I already have a pile on my nightstand!! Glad to here people are liking it!! 1w

OriginalCyn620 @Cinfhen It was just okay for me. To me, it read like a stream of consciousness, which isn‘t my favorite. If it weren‘t for that, I probably would‘ve liked it more. 1w
Cinfhen I‘m not finding a book yet that is holding my attention for that prompt 😬 1w

Thanks to @Cathythoughts and @andrew61 for bringing this one to my attention!
A heart breaking story at the centre and lots of tough stories about the trials and tribulations these women have gone through. But a compelling look at families and supporting and getting each other through things.
Awesome read, tough themes.

This book was so moving and powerful. There wasn‘t a single piece of it that I didn‘t love. Dimaline‘s writing is beautiful and the story was so gripping.

Aborigine authors Amelia and Ezekiel are a brother and sister from Australia, who wrote this story together....

Cinfhen Ohhh!!! Looks promising 3w

This was a denser book - a bit of a slow burn, but very well written. It shows the culture of Native American people during a time or strong divide. It centers around an attack and the violence and racism that influence the hatred behind the attack. This was a really deep book with strong characters. #indigenousauthor #booked2019

Cinfhen I‘m having trouble with my indigenous author pick. Every book I‘ve started is “heavy” and I‘m not feeling it yet🤷‍♀️ 3w
Victoriahoperose @Cinfhen have you read the book I tagged? It‘s good - a little lighter in some ways. 3w
Cinfhen Yes!!! And it was sooo good, despite all the controversy surrounding him. 3w

This was sad, heartbreaking, and also weird in some places. It reads like a stream of consciousness, which isn‘t my fave format. I didn‘t hate it but didn‘t love it either. #booked2019 #indigenousauthor

Cinfhen Pretty pic 🌸🌸🌸I agree, stream of consciousness doesn‘t work well for me, either 🙄 4w
BarbaraTheBibliophage Sounds like a tough read, but a unique choice for the prompt. 👊🏻♥️📚 3w
