Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich

Holy crap this book was AMAZING!

I’m always excited to see a new book by Louise Erdrich and this one blew me away.  The prose is beautiful, the story is spooky and insanely topical, and I found myself wanting to do nothing but read this book.  Perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale (but more frightening in my opinion), I found it so easy to relate to Cedar and the other characters in this book.

This book is a beautiful (yet terrifying) look at what happens when science and religion come to a head in times of crisis.  Because you follow Cedar from the beginning of the downfall, it is scary to see how possible it is that we could fall into this mess of a world that Erdrich has created.  It is also a great book about identity and culture and how the two interact.  Great great book.  A must read.
