    Sherman Alexie is a self important, whiny alarmist, and a really bad writer.This book is all about Beware the Red Peril and has portrayed White Indian race relations at their c 1876 peakWhat an asshole.By the way, I m Native.

    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

    Sherman Alexie s Indian Killer eschews the straight up spectacle of a racially motivated serial killer mystery with its potential for red herrings and dramatic climaxes and instead savors the subtlety of innumerable racially conflicted characters who seem equally capable of murder and leaves the whodunnit unanswered.I have an undeniable fondness for Alexie I m already planning how to teach his The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian at the beginning of the next school year One of t

    This was my introduction to Sherman Alexie, and I still think it is his best work that I ve read to date The title itself made me question my thought processes, as I immediately envisioned a book replaying and displaying the historical themes of colonization and genocide against Native Americans in a modernized plot This is, of course, what Alexie is doing, but the story centers around a couple of local murders attributed to an Indian Killer an Indian who kills, not someone who kills Indi This was

    This novel is a ghost story, a murder mystery, a psychological thriller, and a historical narrative reflecting the slow erosion of the native peoples of North America It was uncomfortable to read, yet comforting to know that I m not alone in my observations and my interpretations of the facts behind the systematic destruction, abuse, and dissolution of the first people over the past three to four centuries And, to focus the issues and themes of cultural domination and destruction through the p This novel

    Powerful and disturbing, this book will shake you up and push on your comfort zones It is a dark and meaningful tale full of racial tensions, prejudices and insanity A serial killer in Seattle sets off a cascade of reactions and violence in and against the Indian community in Seattle The characters are deep and conflicted, a complex mix of the well meaning, the angry and the alienated, and they all swirl together in a convoluted clash of tension and tumult And ultimately in the end, Indian K Powerful and distur

    I ve heard Alexi disavow this book publicly, so I don t feel bad giving it a negative review despite adoring the author It s an angry book, and in an unhelpful way it doesn t have sympathy for some of its own characters.There s also the fact that it s a mystery without a solution I m all for genre bending, but this was one of the least satisfying endings I ve ever read It seems like an immature book, something he wrote before he d worked out a lot of what makes him a great author Read his I ve heard Alexi disavow this

    As I was reading this book I was aware that I didn t really like it, but at the same time I was compelled to keep reading it That s why I gave it two stars instead of only one though frankly I feel that s a little generous , because there was just something that kept drawing me in That all stopped, however, about two thirds of the way into the book, when it essentially became a contest between whites and Indians of who could do the most hideous thing to complete innocent strangers At that po As I was reading this book I was
