The Round House

The Round House - Louise Erdrich I rushed through this book a bit for book club, and I think that dampened my enjoyment of it a bit. I appreciate how the author blended themes and genres so well. It's a coming of age novel, but also a basic crime thriller, and a treatise on racism, and a sharp political portrait. That's pretty genius. I didn't feel compelled to rush through it, even though I did. I don't think I'll ever re-read it, but I would probably appreciate it more if I did.
