    Not One of My Choices

    I took a college course in Native American Literature and this book was on the list of required reading. This is not a book I would recommend someone to read. In fact, this was one book that I actually did not mind getting back $1.25 when I actually paid $16. The book to me was not worth much more and I was glad to get rid of it. I found the short stories in this book to be very boring. Some of these stories were perverse and used strong language. Many of the stories were just too sickening and weird to even get through! My favorite short story in this collection, was Sherman Alexie's, 'The Approximate Size of My Favorite Tumor'. That was a very funny story.The introduction,however, sadly to say, may have been the best part of the book. The introduction gave you a good insight on Native American writers. It is unfortunate that the stories to follow overall were just terrible!
