Description

Set in the Lake Superior region in the mid-1800s, The Birchbark House is a vital novel providing fascinating details of a year in the life of young Omakayas, a girl of the Ojibwa.

With exquisite care, National Book Critics Circle Award winner Louise Erdrich has fashioned a story rich in the way of life and heritage of the Ojibwa people, a story that begs to be told out loud. As each season in a year of Omakayas' life is lovingly portrayed, the satisfying rhythm of her days is shattered when a stranger visits the lodge one night, bringing with him an invisible enemy that will change things forever.

A remarkable book

I got this book for my granddaughter, but listened to it myself first. I became engrossed with the characters and story. Louise Erdrich brings to this story the same sense of place and depth of character that she brings to her books for adult readers. Enjoyable and worthwhile.

My children loved listening to this story with me

Simple gentle. If you like Willa Cather, you'll probably like this. My children loved listening to this story. Good for a long midwest drive.

My husband & daughter loved listening, too!

In preparation for the upcoming school year, I decided to listen to this novel on my iPhone while doing chores around the house this summer. It’s a lovely perfectly sweet story. But much to my surprise, my three year old girl started bringing the book in the room to look at the pictures while I would work. She started asking me to let her listen at bedtime. That’s when my husband also took interest. Having the audio book turned my “professional “ reading into family reading.

I loved being able to listen to this story and following along as I read the book so I could fully understand the story. I loved this story and it really helped me understand the words and so on so forth.

Rather disappointing based on her other novels

I have become quite impressed with the writing of Louise Erdrich, so when I saw this small older offering with no reviews I gave it a try. It is a young adult book, with a poor reader. The story is simple, not particularly well constructed and a bit jumpy as it does not follow emotional threads or action threads through for a "reader"s complete understanding. If you, like me, are an admirer of Ms Erdrich's novels, don't bother with this little, inexpensive offering. It bears no resemblance to her writing of the last decade, except it concentrates on Native American life.

Fantastic awesome gorgeous brilliant

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Birchbark House gefallen?

I don't know what I like best - the tender and yet powerful way the author tells the story, or the sensitive and caring way it is read!
THANK YOU!

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

I could not stop listening - everything else in my life felt like disturbing and a nuysance. I finished the audibook in one vevening - okay, one complete night.
I will certainly listen to it at least once more, and I will certainly buy the sequels!

The story and its narration painted vivid pictures on my mind, I was really lost in it.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

I am German, and I had no difficultier in understanding the English audio book.
Though the author uses the language virtuoso and I certainly don't know every English word, the reader tells it with such a clear and resonant voice in just the perfect speed, that the colorful and vibrant pictures are evolving nevertheless.

I don't know whether there is a German translation of this masterpiece - if there is, the translator must have had a very hard time to transfer the many-faceted mood of the best audio book I have ever listened to!
