The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse by Louise Erdrich
The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse

ReadingMathTeacher, January 2, 2011

Erdrich drew me into the minds of her characters several books back, so I couldn't contain my excitement when I found out that she gave us all of the stories again from the perspective of Father Damien Modeste. All the pieces of the puzzle fall together perfectly, and we're left with all the right questions answered and still aching for her next installment in the stories of this community. As always, I stand in awe of Erdrich's ability to create such intricate lives and thoughts of such unique characters.

The Painted Drum (P.S.) by Louise Erdrich
The Painted Drum (P.S.)

ReadingMathTeacher, January 1, 2010

I was completely pulled into this piece of Erdrich's puzzle about the families she started telling us about in _Love Medicine_. I love hearing the different perspectives of the story, and finding out how so many lives can be so very, very intertwined. I was thrilled, too, to hear more about Fleur's early life. Definitely a must read of the decade.

Tales of burning love by Louise Erdrich
Tales of burning love

ReadingMathTeacher, November 14, 2009

I started reading this simply because I adore Erdrich's work, and I was pleasantly surprised when I recognized names from her other novels. Erdrich again provides details on the characters' she's encouraged us to love and despise -- while still somehow spinning a whole new story with new personalities within the familiar community.

Tracks by Louise Erdrich
Tracks

ReadingMathTeacher, November 14, 2009

I was completely riveted by Erdrich's story of the tribe in her series -- I was constantly trying to figure out how her characters were intertwined and connected, and she always found a way to surprise me with her intricate details.

The Bingo Palace (P.S.) by Louise Erdrich
The Bingo Palace (P.S.)

ReadingMathTeacher, November 14, 2009

Erdrich pulled me into her world through _Love Medicine_ and _The Beet Queen_, and the deeper I read into the characters' lives in _The Bingo Palace_, the more difficult it was to put the book down. Erdrich brilliantly tells a story we can all relate to, in a very unique way.
