Very educational for non Indians about tribes and reservation life. Moving and emotional written in the first person
As always, Alexie coaxes the soul from its hiding place with his masterful storytelling. I laughed out loud and dropped tears a few times. Alexie does not simply read his book to us, he is telling us a story. Much like being a passenger on a road trip with a driver you completely trust, I never questioned the turns or scrutinized the speed. Alexie fosters a trust that wherever he's headed, it will be amazing. So, we can just relax, ease into the seat, and enjoy the ride
I only found out after purchasing that the book was for young adults. I still enjoyed it---I have an interest in books about American Indians---and laughed out loud a few times. The performance is stellar. I'd read another book by the author and hopefully there are more on audible that he narrates.
Brilliant, I didn't want it to end. Leaves you wanting more. I'm so glad Sherman Alexis shared this part of his life with the world.
A gem of a book. Listen as soon as you can, laugh and weep and revel in a truly authentic, American voice. Bonus is Alexie's own narration which is sublime in its pacing, cadence and restraint.
One of my favorite YA novels ever. Hilarious, heart-breaking, and real, Sherman really brings Arnold Spirit Junior to life
