I loved this book so much, I started reading it more slowly as it drew to its end, not wanting to let go of the characters, not wanting to give up the story of Indigo, Linnaeus the monkey, Rainbow the parrot, Sister Salt, and the little grandfather. Beautiful writing, encyclopedic knowledge of a wide variety of subjects (including botany and meteorology), and a plot that had me tearing through my Kindle, anxious to learn what would happen next.

I just finished this book in a marathon reading stint yesterday and found it a delightful read. Taking place around the turn of the century and interweaving the lives and stories of Native Americans in the West with a couple of east coast high society transplants, Silko creates a novel that has an old-fashioned appeal and pacing. The story unravels slowly and methodically, with nothing rushed, and much of the moments guessed before they occur, but in a way that is satisfying. Beyond this, she inflicts some contemporary issues and concerns onto this time period--feminism, cultural dissolution, land use-- that are obviously projected but powerful for the modern reader. My one criticism is that I did feel the novel drag a bit in the last third or so, but it kept me enchanted none-the-less. Overall I would highly recommend this novel.

Not one of her more famous books. Definitely should get more attention. I love this.

This novel follows the lives of two, Native American sisters after they are separated. The novel follows the traditional “Victorian” form. I found that the novel tried to juggle too many side stories- this greatly detracted from the novel’s overall goal--not to mention it left some characters premature, and underdeveloped. There was a lot of superfluous detail in regards to character’s personal histories. Such detail took up too many pages and left the immediate action of the novel stagnant and slow-moving. Overall, the novel told an interesting tale, but too long to get there.

A good story, with interesting characters. It contains lots of information about the role of women at the turn of the century, about Native American customs, and more than the average reader wants to know about botany. This was read by my book club, and stimulated lots of discussion.
Most of us agreed that the tale could have been told in about half the number of pages.
It became tedious. I think it should be re-written, after a lot of editing. Then it would be much more enjoyable.

My favorite novel!!! highly recommend!!! the amazing adventure of a lost soul. a powerful description of various events that takes you into complete personification of their lives. You become part of their identities. At the end you simply do not want to let go but stay with the characters and be part of their adventures.
