I bought this book after hearing Alexie's "Phoenix Arizona" story read on the radio. That story was simply great and moving, but this novel was a big disappointment. The women characters were so flat, he couldn't even bother to give them real names (Chechers and Chess, Betty and Veronica!); the white characters were all pure evil; the plot, involving an all-Indian rock band inspired by Robert Johnson's guitar is very thin. (Johnson wanders in at the beginning and is forgotten nearly until the very end.) It was a quick read, at times Alexie is a very good writer (though I thought most of the dialogue was terrible), I liked learning about a different culture, and I like the two main characters, but overall I wouldn't recommend the book.

This book gives a creative insight into life on a reservation. But the plot wasn't very interesting. It was true to life in some places but not in others. The strory was boring. Hence the title.
