Reservation Blues

cover reservation blues

After reading Reservation Blues in English class I found that the novel had a very abrupt, yet compelling ending. I liked how the author, Sherman Alexie, used magical realism within the novel to tie both the mystery of the Reservation and ongoing events in the lives of the main characters. As the story progressed, so did my captivation with the plot. I was entertained by the metaphors and hidden clues that Sherman Alexie placed throughout the novel, as though he was making a treasure hunt. The dramatic ending of the novel, including both the death of the main character and some of the Indian’s desertion of the Reservation was quite shocking. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Reservation Blues and would encourage it to anyone looking for an excellent, informative read.
