"Reassured, he grabbed the end of a thought that whipped by and held on. He was a bulldog on the end of a bicycle chain, his teeth hurt with the effort of thinking."

I didn‘t “get” it. “I” was used in the book, but part of the time “I” was male and part of the time “I” was female. I wasn‘t sure if “I” was switching back and forth somehow or what, but a review I saw said something about there being two narrators, one an old man and one a young woman. Nanapush was the name of the old man “I”, but I don‘t know if it was just a name or if it was meant to represent the native legend of the same name?

Sister Leopolda is an awful person, but holy fuck, it's metal as shit that she made a rosary out of barbed wire and used it to strangle the town child rapist (of whom she had been a victim). Respect.

This book took me by surprise. What starts out as just a book about people in a small town, quickly develops into a complex look into the inner dreams and anxieties of individuals who are shaped by the people, and the town of Owl. Such a witty, honest, unpredictable read and I'm glad I finally read it.

I will definitely check out other books by this author.

I wasnt in love with it. It was intriguing. I would have probably enjoyed it more had i read the first 3.

The writing was very good! The subject matter is heavy. There is a lot that happened in this book. I can't quite give it 4 stars. It was a good read, but I didn't really love getting back to it. There was a lot of pain and sadness that made it a hard one to love.

JazzFeathers It didn't conquere me either. It was beautifully written and l didn't have problems with the subject matter (l mean, it's dusturbing but it was written realistically and obviously with a lot of care). What detached me from the story was the ending. So bleak and devoid of hope that l thought, why did l even read it? Yeah, maybe l should more honestly say that it was unsatisfying. 2mo
