Just Another Book Suggestion

If I had my way I would read nothing besides escapism fiction.  Rarely would I venture into reality, choosing to remain, instead, in worlds created by David Baldacci or Lee Child or Vince Flynn and the guy who took over the Mitch Rapp adventures after Flynn died.  Harry Bosch is real even though I know Michael Connelly created him.  I inhale books by Kathy Reichs, Tess Gerritsen and, yes, even hidden away where no one can see me Patricia Cornwell.  Sadly for Kinsey Millhone the alphabet end at 'Y' when author Sue Grafton died.
Those are the books I would read if every once in awhile I didn't feel I should do my brain a favor and read something a little harder to decipher.  So it was that my brother, Tom Walker whose posts you frequently read here, suggested I read The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich.  It's not an easy read and it certainly isn't predictable.  I do, however, recommend it as a good read.  In its way it also is a mystery but then isn't most of life just one big mystery?  Read the book and let me know what you think.

I really like Louise Erdrich. "The Round House" is one I recommend.
