Sentence | Louise Erdrich
post image
Pickpick

Books & bookstores, power of a sentence, booksellers as essential workers, indigenous language. End=reading list. Tookie bursts from first few pages like a whisky- & adrenaline-fueled rocket. A bookish ghost wants in. Louise herself pops up in a bookseller cameo. Yes, lags & sags in parts, but a lack of focus & some disoriented haunting fits a pandemic year novel. A warmth to these characters even as they wander. The door is open. Go. 2021

Wonderful characters! Also, the novel captured very well the emotions that many of us went through in 2020. #tob2022

I really enjoyed Erdrich‘s take on a ghost story.. it involves a bookstore. Also, this is the first story I‘ve read that has involved pandemic times, that I haven‘t felt absolutely exhausted by.. she addressed the last 2+years in just the right way(s)

#coffeeandbooks #mugtour

Whenever I visit Harwich on the Cape, coffee at the Snowy Owl & a book or two from the Owl‘s next door neighbor, Brewster Book Store is THE ritual. So many memories of a multitude of coffee klatch‘s with my sibs & books we purchased. After all, we must support indie bookstores & coffee shops! The next generation of adults also participates. 📚💜☕️

Amiable I love every single thing about this post. Every word. 🥰 2d

Before this book I had only read one other Erdrich book. Now I want to read them all. 💚

Tookie was such a fun character. I loved her view on things, her no nonsense attitude, and her general love of literature. I feel like years from now people will read this because of its commentary on the pandemic, George Floyd's murder, and even the election, although she does avoid too much political talk.

vivastory Great review. I'm looking forward to reading this one. I think it's impossible for a MN author to write a book set in their homestate during '20 and not in some way address Floyd's murder. Minneapolis is filled with so many amazing bookstores that somehow despite living there for 4 years I never made it to Birchbark Books! 3d
Addison_Reads @vivastory I think you'll really enjoy this one. The way she used herself and her store in the story was one of my favorite parts. 2d
