I didn't realize how much Joe, the narrator of The Round House, had gotten into my head until I finished the book and started reading the afterward by the author Louise Erdrich, but I was still reading it with Joe's voice (and I did READ this one--no Audible this time). It didn't dawn on me that the author who was speaking was a female until she talked about her fight against breast cancer. So, having introduced the book in this fashion, I will say that Erdrich got the teen "voice" exactly right. Having grown up with a reservation just north of my town, I was really interested in hearing the Native POV. I could not stop reading this book. It does not start happily. It does not end happily. But through the text, you feel that Joe will one day be ok. It's the journey that will keep you reading.
