    Story
    (895)

    One Sunday in the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked. The details of the crime are slow to surface as Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to relive or reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and 13-year-old son, Joe. In one day, Joe's life is irrevocably transformed. He tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude. Increasingly alone, Joe finds himself thrust prematurely into an adult world for which he is ill prepared.

    Tony says: "MADE THE LISTS OF BEST BOOKS!"
    "The right voice for this Erdrich story"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Round House again? Why?

    Yes. The voice grows on you, with its reservation pauses and pronunciations. The story spirals through time, with details in its diversions that will take more than one listen to catch.


    What other book might you compare The Round House to and why?

    Not a book, but a Joni Mitchell song--Cherokee Louise


    Which character – as performed by Gary Farmer – was your favorite?

    Mooshum


    If you could take any character from The Round House out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Cappy, because he'd be good company and easy on the eye, from what I hear
