History of Wolves Reviews

  • Bridget

    WOW. This novel left me breathless, Fridlund's sentences literally knocking me in the gut. She has a masterful way of telling a story, one that is both visual and fierce. Her characters complex and real, the way she described some things creepy, chilling. I don't think I've read anything like this and I sincerely hope I will again! Stunning, unique, crisp. This will without a doubt be my favorite book of 2017.

  • Taryn Pierson

    This is the second book I’ve read this year that portrays a family tragedy more as a series of snapshots than a continuous, easy-to-follow narrative. The first was Idaho, in which a woman marries a man whose life with his first wife imploded in the wake of a sudden accident in the woods. In History of Wolves, a teenage babysitter latches onto a neighbor family that on the outside seems good and wholesome, especially after the girl’s troubled childhood in a now-defunct cult group, but upon closer ...more

    Wow. This book. Do yourself a favor and clear your schedule for 24 hours, find your favorite reading perch, and arrange for someone to walk the dogs…because once you start, you’re not coming up for air.

    Madeline Furston is fascinated by the study of wolves and no wonder. At 14 years old, she is living in a failed commune with a father who is “kind to objects” and a mother who means well but hasn’t quite mastered her nurturing instincts. An outcast in her north Minnesota school with a keen sense o

    I can't figure out how to rate this. I did NOT like this book. The writing is 3 stars, maybe even 4, there is definitely some snippets of really beautiful prose. Even more than snippets actually, the prose is consistently enjoyable, and judged only on the technical, she'd probably walk away with 4 stars, but judging on the overall experience, 2 stars all the way.

    The way I felt about this book was the way one feels when they're listening to a story about some random, nondescript person who went

    WTF did I just read? Madeline/Linda made 2-3 sets of tracks in the snow and none of them ended up at the same destination. What did the Mr. Grierson/Lilly story have to do with the Patra/Leo/Paul story? The writing here was very good, but I think the point of this story ended up abandoned on a canoe in the middle of the lake. Who knows, maybe that was the point? Grrrr... The setting and characterization of Madeline/Linda meshed very well and conveyed a deep sense of loneliness. I'm sure there's ...more

    The moment I finished this book, I rushed back to the library to return it so that another of my fellow Denizens of the Eternal Waitlist could have a chance to read it ASAP. Northern Virginia Readers: You’re Welcome.

    As many others have described, this is not a perfect book; it ambitiously tackles a number of weighty themes and integrates various plotlines and time jumps within a relatively modest page count. So, I cannot protest too much other readers’ objections that the book occasionally meand

    I read this because it was on the Man Booker Prize Long List. I loved the title, the cover (peek inside the dust jacket), but that's where the love stopped.

    At first glance, it was hard to stop comparing this book to Marlena by Julie Buntin, a book I read this summer. Both have girls in mid-teens as protagonists, in the woods of a rural northern state that starts with an Mi-, trying to navigate difficult situations with parents that are less than present. Comparing the two, I found Marlena to be
