I laughed, I smiled sadly, I admired the witty cartoons in short, I loved it I m a trainee teacher for English as a Foreign Language and I had to read this book over the holidays for a course in teaching methodology On the last day of the holidays I realised I still hadn t read it, not even ordered it So I downloaded it on my kindle and settled down to read Three hours later I closed the kindle cover not like a real book cover, but the feeling is similar with a happy sad grin We were supposed to read the novel as a possible book to read in school, but I also really loved it for myself It is funny, clever, tragic and has an authentic ring to it I would recommend it not only for teenage readers, but also for adults It is also a great book to read in school, what with the issues of being caugth between cultures, teenage problems, bullying, poverty, and friendship. Ja wie soll man denn sowas bewerten Aufjedenfall wollte die Schule das haben Also muss es volle f nf Sterne wert sein. Schnelle Lieferung, Gute Handgr e, leichtes Material, fester Buchumschlag, I have a book, which used to be my favorite in than 20 years I read it again and again about once a year In German and in English Like a ritual Well, to say it quick and easy the Part time Indian kicked it from its throne Bad for his notional patients and good for us that Sherman Alexie did not become a medical doctor but a writer And it s ok for the other book, I still like it second best now. Musste f r die Abitur Vorbereitung gelesen werden, habe mir das Buch nach Empfehlung dann auch geg nnt Die Sprache ist relativ einfach und ggf mit Erkl rungen versehen F r Interessenten kann ich das Buch durchaus weiterempfehlen, schwarzer Humor inklusive.
