I liked this book. It took me a while to get into it, but once I did, I could not put it down. I thought it was well written, with a very very dry humor. It made me think about an entirely different perspective on life- instead of planning for adventure, to simply live and let adventure happen.
This was a very entertaining and illuminating book. I have not read very many books about Native Americans in modern times, and this book really gives some insight as to what life is like on reservations. It also is a great coming of age story.
This memoir is good and revealing, and I learned a lot about maniac-depressive illness. I thought it was a bit too long, and that it would have been much improved if the other side of the story had been told concurrently. Bits and pieces were missing, as though she was not ready to truly tell us everything.
Ooh. This was good. It took me a while to get started on it- the beginning is a little slow and I wondered what the point of the book was going to be- but it very lovingly told the story of a hermaphrodite born into a difficult world= and probably a place in the world where acceptance is hardest to find. I was thoroughly absorbed.
