Son, things have never been like how you think they used to be Sherman Alexie, Indian KillerIndian Killer is a highly disturbing but at the same time an amazingly written book It is riveting.I recently read this and felt a strong feeling of familiarity like I had read it before which I realized I had Quite awhile ago.I had this on my list for awhile It is a very dark and bleak book and is not as you might think based on its title It is a well written and complex story but because of how Son, things have never been like how you think they used to be Sherman Alexie, Indian KillerIndian Killer is a highly disturbing but at the same time an amazingly written book It is riveting.I recently read this and felt a strong feeling of familiarity like I had read it before which I realized I had Quite awhile ago.I had this on my list for awhile It is a very dark and bleak book and is not as you might think based on its title It is a well written and complex story but because of how, not just dark, but genuinely disturbing it is, you should read it when you are in the right mood.SPOILERS I realized I read it before when I predicted the exact ending and started remembering quotes I had the same feeling, reading it a second time, which is to say that I wanted to jump through the book and change the ending I guess that is the sign of a truly good book.Dare I say I was drawn to John I never thought he did it and reading and learning about him, his dreams, his alienation and watching his slow descent into madness was both gripping and horrifying all at once.I have always found myself drawn to Native American culture Even from a young age I did find myself just fascinated by the way they lived and by their love of freedom and their land In Sherman Alexie s version of Seattle, we ve not come far from where we once were regarding our attitudes toward this culture I do not think, however, that he was referencing Seattle specifically I mean yes that is where this novel takes place but I think it could have been anywhere as I think Seattle was a Metaphor for this country s treatment of Native American Culture as a whole.So yes I would recommend it It is unique and bitter and your soul might ache while reading it But it is an amazing book that I think it would also be a great book for book clubs There is much to talk about
