Review of Future Home of the Living God-Louise Erdrich

This dystopian novel by the acclaimed author will remind you of The Handmaid's Tale but with a Native American angle.  The world has gone into a future shock mode, with the environment out of control; normal childbirth is rare so the government captures women, especially pregnant women, to either breed them or monitor their pregnancy.  If the baby survives, the child is taken away and the mother impregnated to give birth again.  Cedar is just trying to survive capture in a world gone mad and safely have her baby, with the help of her adoptive, liberal parents and her Native American family.  Haunting.  4 Elves-Highly recommended for adults and mature teens
