    1. "Power" is the word for this novel. Chickasaw writer Linda Hogan has created a magnificent, powerful novel. Power is the story of Onishto, a girl belonging to an almost extinct Florida tribe that sees the panther as its creator and protector.Onishto lives in a dysfunctional family. When she can, she spends time with Ama, a single, middle-aged Native woman who lives alone in the swamp and hears and sees more of the natural world than most people do. Ohishto also longs for wilderness. But she know [...]

    2. This novel describes the paradoxical struggle between two different religious creeds, between two different ways of perceiving the world, between a multitude of female identities. The beauty of this novel is that it exposes the similarities and the differences, revealing the dangers in both and the ways in which power is employed within both belief systems, for good and bad purposes. The novel starts off very strong, with the storm scene and the climax of the panther killing. This section is inc [...]

    3. It was somewhat difficult adapting to her circular style of writing, though I liked all the symbolism: the sick panther represented the death of the old ways of the clan, Omishto represented their future. The Spanish horse represented the Spaniards who were there first and were now gone, as did Methusaleh the ancient tree that didn't survive the storm. It had been planted by the Spaniards. Ama was in complete control of her destiny, her actions directed toward bringing Omishto into the clan. Pow [...]

    4. This is an amazing novel about the conflict between Native and white worlds. Omishto, the last of the Taigo people, confronts the harsh truth that there are no absolutes when it comes to some questions of what is right and wrong and what has to be done. My favorite line from the book: "Would it have been a different world if someone had believed our lives were as important as theory and gold?"

    5. Our story follows young Omishto and the events that take place during an unexpected Hurricane. Omishto belongs to the Taiga Tribe, set in the swamps of South Florida, this small and dying tribe has few members in the reservation. Her mother, a born again Christian, expects certain things of her but Omishto is drawn to the ways of her ancestors and to her Aunt Ama who follows the spirit world. One day while visiting Ama a hurricane unexpectedly hits the area and Ama and Omishto are caught in the [...]

    6. Power is a beautiful novel that contains descriptive and soft prose. The novel shows a side of Native American culture that is not always heard of. Omishto, the main character, is a 16 year old native who seems immensely attached to her culture. Omishto is in constant battle with her mother and stepfather in defense of her Aunt Ama. Ama is a complex character being exiled from the tribe for breaking tribal and federal law. Unfortunately, the novel barely touches on the action, and is mostly desc [...]

    7. I really loved this book. Maybe 4.5, only not a 5 because I think I can say I enjoyed Solar Storms better. She writes beautifully and with both books I have felt my brain stretching.

    8. It's hard to review books I've read for school because I read them differently than novels I pick up just for fun. Power isn't a book I would pick up on my own, but I really enjoyed the discussions and insight I gleaned from my classes.Also, this isn't an easy book to read. It's told in first person, and the narrator contradicts herself constantly. The plot moves slowly--things happen, but they take their time, and the narrator has many thoughts about them. The prose is poetic at times, but that [...]

    9. This style of writing felt so unique. It was almost like a blend of stream of consciousness and lyrical. It took my breath away and I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to.

    10. This book has one of the most honest reflections of how a conscience works (if it is working at all that is). The questioning back and forth on different issues is at times creating breaks in the reading for me, and then suddenly I am thrown as a reader into a new flow in the story again. I felt spent, challenged and then liberated while reading it. It is a very peculiar, very remarkable way the story is being told with a unique voice that makes me feel like I really know the main character. I l [...]

    11. Breath, wind, sky, water, plant, animal, humanwhere does one begin or end?"A haunting story of forces beyond the human world. It is a book to treasure and read for the voice of Omishto, the main character, a young woman strong enough to go against the colonizing systems that hold her indigenous people away from their traditional ways."lindahoganwriter/index

    12. “I recall that one day Ama said to me, ‘See this earth here, this ground here? See those flat yellow rocks? Those are teeth of a larger thing. We live in the mouth of something,’ she said. ‘I don’t know what it is. All I know is we’re small as weevils.’And I believe she was right only she didn’t know that part of what covers us is law.”Power is a psychological novel of the caliber of Crime and Punishment. There is little real action - even the hurricane, the hunt, are written t [...]

    13. r-for-rocket/2016Set in Florida swamps and forests, this is a coming-of-age novel about Omishto, a teen girl belonging to the fictional Taiga tribe, finding herself in a world where the old ways of the Panther people are becoming extinct (right along the panthers and tribe themselves). She prefers spending her time with her kinswoman Ama, who is in touch with the older, sacred ways as opposed to being at home with her Westernized mother and abusive stepfather. When after a brutal storm Omishto s [...]

    14. Linda Hogan's "Power" is beautifully described, poetic, and gives voice to a perspective that is seldom heard. The voice of the Native American people who find alienation and harsh survivalism in today's world dominated by Christian thought and Western thinking. For that, I give Hogan kudos. Unfortunately, the novel is also heavy-handed, pedagogical, and repetitive. by the end of the novel, it is easy to wonder if Omishto simply exchanges one absolute for another. Don't get me wrong, the novel i [...]

    15. Following an unexpected hurricane, sixteen year-old Omishto witnesses her friend Ana kill a panther, the sacred ancestor of their Taiga tribe. After being witness to this perplexing ceremony, Omishto finds herself torn between tradition and loyalty to her tribe, and the Western world that has all but destroyed these traditions. In Power, Linda Hogan’s skills as a poet shine through in the manner in which she describes and personifies nature: “As I run into the deepening color of the storm, I [...]

    16. Could not put this down--read it in one sitting. Some flaws, yes, too much repetition that might have worked--circularity could work well for this type of story--but I didn't think the repetition was used judiciously and it seemed more a problem with the editing. But, oh well. I loved it anyway, and these matters felt like minor hiccups. Slight spoiler ahead:This comment will only make sense to those who have read the book, but I was most intrigued by the woman who was the head of the Panther cl [...]

    17. The events at the heart of this book are all summed up in the cover description - but the telling of that tale takes more than two hundred, lush, beautiful pages. There's a lot of purposeful repetition in Power - the repetition of names, phrases, and ideas as if the story is oral history, key moments told more than once to fix things in memory, mind, and heart. Hogan has a gift for evoking place in each of her novels, for telling the story of soil and water and animals and bird, for making the w [...]

    18. Tribal tradition conflicts with modern (read: white) attitude in this beautifully written book centering on the plight of the ever-declining Florida panther. The narrator, a young girl increasingly drawn to her eccentric aunt living alone in the swamps and away from her mother and lecherous step-father’s advances and beatings. A hurricane finds her fighting for her life, after saving the boat that takes her to her aunt; afterwards they hunt, and the narrator is horrified by something her belov [...]

    19. I wanted to like this book, but the circular, repetitive writing just grated after a while. It was like listening to a drunk person. "Oh, did I tell you, the Taiga word for "panther" is "sisa"." "Yup, you told me that three pages ago." "Oh. Well it is. The Taiga word for panther is sisa." "Right. Got it. Can we get on with the story now?"Don't get me wrong; I like tangents. I like richly described settings. But I don't like when a short story is being padded out with pretty-but-repetitive descri [...]

    20. 16-year-old Omishto, one of only 30 Taiga Indians remaining, joins with her friend, Ama, a reclusive, strong Taiga woman who is considerably older. After a hurricane Ama tracks and kills a panther; Omishto follows along. Of course, she is tried by the federal game wardens for killing the endangered cat. But more importantlyk, she is tried by the tribal elders for disobeying tribal law in killing the sacred symbol of the Panther Clan without their permission, and the appropriate ceremonies. The b [...]

    21. Omishita is a sixteen year old girl living amongst the last thirty members of her native nation, the Tiaga, who live in what is now Florida. During a hurricane, her Aunt Ama tracks and kills a sacred panther--and is arrested because the panther is protected by federal law. Juxtaposing this legal proceeding with the fact that the Tiaga have no protection against extinction, Hogan explores survival and assimilation, white law and native law, and--as in most of her novels--regeneration of tribal be [...]

    22. Omishto as well as Amma and the other less central characters in this book are great characters and this is the telling of a great story. I wanted to absolutely love Power, but fell short of that. Something about the writing made it difficult for me to get fully wrapped up in the story, perhaps the slowness of the pace but also a lot of reviews mention the repetitive style of the writing and that is very true and a factor, especially in retrospect, this could be a much briefer but therefor more [...]

    23. A powerful and deep novel that I read too fast. Omishto has her feet in many worlds, and her challenge (and ours) is both in figuring out how to navigate these worlds as well as what's at stake in doing so. A friend described it as a "quiet" novel, and it's true on multiple levels, but mostly (for me) in the sense that it invites quiet, thoughtful reflection. It's easy to move through, but it's not easy to let go of. It urges us to think--about our histories, our environment, our identities, our [...]

    24. I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. The prose was beautiful and story mysterious and somewhat dark. It was good insight into a native girls' heart being drawn to rediscover her roots/traditional past amidst a sudden and chaotic event. The story was quite captivating. I, however, i did not love the ending. But not all endings have to be happy I suppose. I want to read more by this author. She writes beautifully.

    25. A young woman comes of age living in between the worlds power: the power of myth, the power of law, the power of nature, human want, societal constraints, religion and intimate connections between family reflected when worlds collide. It's not your hunting experience or vision quest but a spiritual journey that will have you questioning your own role and mystical side of the soul in conjunction with the mechanics of society.

    26. A great book about the Tiaga Indians from their viewpoint at a time when everything was changing. The young woman who the story was about was caught between 2 worlds - her historical world and the modern world and which she would follow. It seemed like it was a very difficult choice for her and one she struggled against for a long time. When she was ready it was chosen for her - sntirely out of her hands. Great book.

    27. It's all too vivid and real to review right now. Maybe a few days down the line I'll come down and try to write a real response. For now, I'll just say that this novel touched my heart in ways that other novels have not. I know this a novel is great when something inside me is changed, this novel changed something inside me.

    28. The book begins with a storm where a panther is killed. It looks at life through the eyes of a young native girl, Omishto, caught in a life between the old ways and the new. Ama 8is her teacher whom she follows during this time. Omishto seeks to understand her own place in a chaotic and dying world.

    29. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. I'm about to fill my library holds list with the rest of her books. This is a story about cultural identity, personal identity, fitting into a family, about morality and everything good. It's wrapped up in a beautifully written package that's brimming with the beauty of an under-represented point of view.
