I would read another book from Louise Erdich.
The young protagonist and his friends are painted in a realistic manner. The story also provides glimpse into life on an Indian reservation.
I understand that Native American speech patterns are different and Gary Farmer's narration provides authenticity, but the pacing, weird pauses, and inflection slowed the story. It was like listening to a beginning reader who does not understand punctuation marks. When I stopped listening to read the book I could not get Gary's slow voice out of my head. Oy.
