    "Very smart and funny"

    Great satire as I'd expect from Harry Shearer. Sure it gets a little silly at times, but always returns to intelligent fun.

    Characters are all quirky individuals who we can laugh at and feel fondness for while knowing they are all heading for failure - if not disaster.

    I recommend Not Enough Indians for listening to when you want light (but not childish) humor.

    (Plus, it's relatively clean: very limited harsh language, nothing graphically described, just a little clean diaper humor).

    Story
    "Fun listen, great characters"
    If you could sum up Not Enough Indians in three words, what would they be?

    Clever, witty, entertaining


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I think it'd make a fun radio play. I kept imaging the cast from A Mighty Wind filling in the orher voices.


    Which character – as performed by Harry Shearer – was your favorite?

    Dr. Roger Gardner


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Join the tribe.


    Any additional comments?

    Great fun from the voice of The Simpsons.

    "A cute and edgy book"

    The book was a good listen. The characters held my interest. The plot was not tedious as might have happened. The idea that a town would resort to these measures to survive is hilarious. It made me smile and even occasionally laugh out loud...something I do not normally do. I liked the book and thought it was good but not great. I recommend it to others for satisfying reading.
