The Round House won the National Book Award for fiction.One of the most revered novelists of our time—a brilliant chronicler of Native-American life—Louise Erdrich returns to the territory of her bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist The Plague of Doves with The Round House, transporting readers to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota.

Reading some of the reviews, I think that I might be the only one not really loving this book?I mean, I almost feel bad writing that, because of the theme of the book, and because of the afterword, but the book just didn’t grab me in any noteworthy way.It’s about Joe, a 13 year old boy in 1988.

Depressing and emotionally difficult, but extremely well-written, particularly the combination of events in the novel and somewhat related folk tales. Great pacing.
