books that I have now finished reading. I have to say that Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann is one of the best novels I have read in years. It's a book I will be reading again one day. I enjoyed the story Louise Erdrich tells in her The Master Butchers Singing Club and the characters grew well on me, but there were a few things in the narrative that I would have liked to see her weave differently. There was nothing that annoyed me but it sometimes felt as if the author was maybe telling too many stories in one. I also got the feeling that she had decided on the title before finishing the story in her mind. The title hadn't really much to do with the essence of the book.
It doesn't mean that I'm giving up on Erdrich because I'm currently reading her first novel, Love Medicine, and I have borrowed The Plague of Doves, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Price for fiction back in 2009. I also borrowed Home by Marilynne Robinson, who won the Pulitzer Price for fiction in 2005 for Gilead. As I held these books in my hands at the library, I wondered if I was the first borrower. I honestly don't think these copies have ever been read. Have people stopped using libraries?
