  • Painfully Accurate, Beautifully Written

    Opening this review by saying I've lived in Spokane, WA all my life. As a testament to my city's culture I had no idea Wellpinit existed. The place were the Spokane Indian Tribe reservation, the tribe my city is named for, and I didn't know they existed until I turned 22. I knew there was a tribe but growing up you don't hear much. Alexie writes beautifully, authentically, and it's a great story. Eye opening for anyone who may not know what life on a reservation is like. A must-read book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

    Hilarious and perfectly written from the standpoint of a 12-14 year old boy; in fact, until I got to the end and saw that the author wrote it as an adult, I really thought a 14 year old boy had actually written it. The questions at the end are also very thought provoking and I could see why this book is used in High Schools as reading material for the students. It is "eye-opening" material about life on a Reservation. I loved Rowdy as a character, and as Junior's bestie. One of the comments from the book made by Junior when talking about a baseball game says something like "I got seven strikes in that game and I was hit once by the ball. Come to think about it, that was the only hit that we got all season." I know that I am not quoting it exactly, but I started laughing out loud and then called my husband to read it to him. I was thinking 'now that's my idea of a bad day', and poor Junior had many, many bad days in this unique and very talented written and illustrated young adult book. I could just imagine how young teens would laugh when reading it too. I can also see that some parents might not like some of the 'young male' humour and attitude, but I expect that 'absolutely true' applies to that, as well. It is what it is. Well done, Sherman Alexie and well done to your talented illustrator, as well!

    Thanks for your feedback!
