    The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian de Sherman Alexie (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Alexie's Absolutely True Diary shows a teenager (a little older than Joe) struggling with the poverty, alcoholism and injustice found on the reservation and the bullying and racism he faces from the outside world. A similar theme of the heartaches of growing up on a reservation in an unjust world - Alexie's work shows more humor, though.… (mais)

    Midwives de Chris Bohjalian (sweetiegherkin)
    sweetiegherkin: Both books deal with a huge family crisis (the rape of the mother in The Round House, the trial of the mother in Midwives) and are told from the point of view of the family's 12- to 14-year-old only child, interspersing the tragic with the everyday life of a preteen/teen; both books also have unexpected endings.… (mais)

    A Time to Kill de John Grisham (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Less literary and as a legal thriller more focused on the courtroom drama, but Grisham's A Time To Kill focuses on similar problems of racism and unspeakable crimes and the drive for the victim's family to seek revenge.

This would make a great movie, set in the 1980s like all the popular stuff was a few years ago. For some reason I think I like this the most of all her books I've read so far, even though it's not as long. ( )

Not quite Canadian First Nations style, but still an interesting story. A style of coming of age, with a bit of mystery to it, too. Other themes include friendship, adoption, family, forms of abuse.
(The narrator is a bit monotone, but you get used to him. Sometimes difficult to tell who's talking during dialogue.)

Riveting, but utterly bleak. Could not bring myself to give it 5 stars. ( )

The Round House is a warm, big-hearted story relating the struggles of thirteen year-old Joe Coutts as he deals with a tragic horror visited upon his mother, Geraldine. With the help of his father, Bazil, Joe learns that there are all kinds of justice. As he looks back from his manhood, he relates how he arrived at his justice for the man that took something precious from his close-knit family.
With colorful characters throughout, Erdrich infuses her story of reservation life with humor, drama, spiritualism, and a poignant depiction of the humanity of the Native American people. There is much to appreciate in the Round House. ( )

An entertaining coming of age on the reservation story. ( )

With “The Round House,” her 14th novel, Louise Erdrich takes us back to the North Dakota Ojibwe reservation that she has conjured and mapped in so many earlier books, and made as indelibly real as Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County or Joyce’s Dublin. This time she focuses on one nuclear family — the 13-year-old Joe Coutts; his mother, Geraldine; and his father, Judge Antone Coutts — that is shattered and remade after a terrible event.

Although its plot suffers from a schematic quality that inhibits Ms. Erdrich’s talent for elliptical storytelling, the novel showcases her extraordinary ability to delineate the ties of love, resentment, need, duty and sympathy that bind families together. “The Round House” — a National Book Award finalist in the fiction category — opens out to become a detective story and a coming-of-age story, a story about how Joe is initiated into the sadnesses and disillusionments of grown-up life and the somber realities of his people’s history.

“The Round House” represents something of a departure for Erdrich, whose past novels of Indian life have usually relied on a rotating cast of narrators, a kind of storytelling chorus. Here, though, Joe is the only narrator, and the urgency of his account gives the action the momentum and tight focus of a crime novel, which, in a sense, it is. But for Erdrich, “The Round House” is also a return to form.

Each new Erdrich novel adds new layers of pathos and comedy, earthiness and spiritual questing, to her priceless multigenerational drama. “The Round House’’ is one of her best — concentrated, suspenseful, and morally profound.

Our reviewer, Alan Cheuse, is always in pursuit of great new books. And today, Louise Erdrich's latest "The Round House." I interviewed her earlier this week about the novel. Now, here's Alan's take and he says it's her best yet.

"Women don't realize how much store men set on the regularity of their habits," Joe says. "Our pulse is set to theirs, and as always on a weekend afternoon we were waiting for my mother to start us ticking away on the evening."
