The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Ellen Forney, Sherman Alexie Loved it! I finished this novel in record time. I found myself laughing and crying with Arnold as he bravely and humorously navigated through two worlds: one Native American and poor, the other white and "privileged." In addition to offering a compelling story that leaves readers thoroughly engaged, Alexie is a master at using satire and humor to quell some of the discomfort that may come from the novel's seemingly pervasive use of stereotypes. I will definitely check out some of Sherman Alexie's other works.
