The Round House: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Louise Erdrich

Narrated By: Gary Farmer

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: October 2012

Duration: 12 hours 40 minutes

Summary:

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. It is an exquisitely told story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends and forever transforms his family.

Riveting and suspenseful, arguably the most accessible novel to date from the creator of Love Medicine, The Beet Queen, and The Bingo Palace, Erdrich’s The Round House is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fiction—at once a powerful coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family, history, and culture.

    This was a very well written book and offers a perspective that is often ignored.

    Amazing, and eye opening. Louise Erdrich masterfully pulls you into the story with her words.

    This book was like eating a quintuple-stuff Oreo cookie. The main plot was good as 2 tasty wafers. And the long, meandering (but delicious and interestingly filling) sub-sub-sub plot of "Indian" (the term used in the book) culture was fascinating and very educational. Louise Erdrich is amazingly savvy with the male perspective on life. The narrator was excellent. His voice and pace was reminiscent of Chief Dan George from "Outlaw Josie Wales." Relax, listen and enjoy this unique book.
