Pressestimmen

"A gem of a book . . . may be Sherman Alexie's best work yet" (New York Times)

"It's humane, authentic and, most of all, it speaks" (Guardian)

"A remarkable tale that is sure to resonate and lift spirits of all ages to come" (USA Today)

"Emotionally spring-loaded, linguistically gymnastic and devastatingly funny" (San Francisco Bay Guardian)

"A coming-of-age story so well observed that its very rootedness in one specific culture is also what lends its universality" (starred review Publishers Weekly)

Werbetext

The heartbreakingly funny semi-autobiographical story of an American Indian boy who manages to leave the reservation despite overwhelming odds.

20 von 20 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Haugi am 17. Oktober 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Der Titel des Buches erinnerte mich spontan an 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time'. Von daher erwartete ich ein Jugendbuch, das vom Stil und der Wortwahl eher locker und leicht daherkommt, das inhaltlich aber sehr anspruchsvoll ist. Und genau das ist Sherman Alexie perfekt gelungen. In seiner gewohnt ironischen und bisweilen bissigen Art gelingt es ihm die Probleme in den Indianerreservaten anzusprechen ohne anzuklagen. Er thematisiert Alkohol, Drogen, Gewalt, Depressionen, Diabetes, die Uran-Minen und andere Missstände ohne dabei die Handlung aus den Augen zu verlieren. Im Mittelpunkt steht ein sympathischer Hauptdarsteller, der seit seinem Wechsel an eine 'weiße' Schule zwischen den Kulturen steht. Das Buch ist komisch und traurig zugleich, man kann es in vier Stunden lesen aber auch vier Wochen darüber diskutieren. Um es mit den Worten von Alexie zu sagen: 'It's a weird thing'.

Format: Taschenbuch
Sherman Alexie is a genius. It's as simple as that.

This wonderfully funny, serious and moving book is a roman a clef of Alexie's life. His protagonist, Arnold Jr. is some 25 years younger than his real counterpart. The story is set in the 2006-2007 school year. Alexie's character, Arnold Jr. was born on November 5, 1992, the same day his best friend Rowdy was born. The two couldn't be more different, yet they form a rock solid bond.

Arnold's sister Mary, some several years his senior leaves the reservation to get married. She moves to Flattop Montana where she pursues her dream, which is to write a Native love story. Prior to her marriage, she had been living in the family basement, rarely venturing out.

Arnold, on the other hand ventures far and beyond the "rez," as the reservation is called. He and Rowdy share a love for comics and it is the clever drawings in this book that make it all the more endearing and humorous. Arnold, born with water on the brain (hydrocephalus) suffered from seizures the first 7 years of his life. He also wore Buddy Holly style glasses, which further emphasize the differences he feels in himself when compared to his peers.

Rowdy, however, treats Arnold like an equal. They exact revenge on adult triplets who have bullied and harassed them. They share laughs, tears and even guy bonding over similar interests. That is, until Arnold decides to leave the reservation school of Wellpinit for Reardan, the school in town. His decision is prompted by his anger at the old materials in Wellpinit and by a teacher who steps up to the plate for him after he gets an in-your-face idea of how disaffected Arnold really is.

Format: Taschenbuch
“The Absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian” by Alexis Sherman is a novel for young adults.
The book is about an Indian boy who lives on the Spokane Reservation in Wellpinit. His name is Arnold Spirit jr. and he loves to draw comics. He wants a better future than the rest of the Indians on the Reservation so he changes to the white school in Reardan. There he makes new friends but he still lives on the Reservation so he has to found out how he can live in both worlds and try to find who he is.

Arnold Spirit jr. is fourteen years old and he has physical and psychological problems like stuttering and seizures. He loves to play basketball even he is not that tall. Also he loves his family and his dog which died because he was ill and Arnold’s father shot him. At Reardan high school he becomes a good basketball player and gets in the varsity team.
His best friend is Rowdy who is born at the same day like Arnold. He’s strong and defeats Arnold when some boys from the reservation beat him. But he gets mad about Arnold when Arnold changes school and only at the end they become friends again.
Arnold has an older sister called Mary runs away because Mary runs away often but she comes always back. She wants to be an author of romantic novels. She lives in the basement of their house.
Arnold‘s mother is intelligent and wants to be a teacher but she never went to a college. His father is most of the time drunken and his dream is to be a professional musician. His grandmother is the nicest person Arnold knows. She’s tolerant and not racist.
His friends at Reardan high school are Penelope (he’s semi-dating her), Roger (first they don’t like each other but then they become friends) and Gordy (he helps Arnold and is his first friend).

Format: Taschenbuch
I adored this book. The writing of this book is not very complicated. It's very simple and funny written and you can understand nearly everything because of the very well explanation in detail.
The story tells about a little Indian, called Arnold Spirit Junior, who explains himself the world and the people who live in there with cartoons. He grows up in an Indian reservation and he just has one friend. His parents live in a dreamworld and are mostly drunken like all the others who live in the reservation.
Junior looks very funny because he's got a big head. He was born with too much celebral spinal fluid in his head. The other Indians in the reservation often make jokes of him and beat him up. But his friend Rowdy defends him mostly. So when Junior came in school he got a teacher called Mr.P. and he talks with him about his problems in the reservation. The teacher tells him that he should go to another school where Junior can find more hope than in the reservation. So he goes to Reardan, a school with just white people.
In the following chapters the writer describes the feelings and the fears of Junior in the new school. The writer explains the feelings of Junior living between the reservation and the new school. By and by Junior finds new friends and his first love Penelope. Despite the fact Junior is an Indian and poor, his new friends really like him but it takes time until Junior realizes that he now has true friends.
In the book there are also some passages where Junior shows off his fellings and where he's very emotional. He writes down this things which belong to a diary.
So this book shows off the whole truth of the life of a 'Part-Time Indian' written in a very funny context and also in a few passages emotional.
All in all this is a must read book.
