In class some weeks ago we got told to read a book, we could choose between two books where I choose “the absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian”.

Theme

the theme is a boy how makes a life-changing choice to leave his hometown and go to school at the neighboring town Reardan.

 

Plot

The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian is a book written by Sherman Alexie and it’s about a boy called Arnold Spirit, Jr. (Junior). He lives in a small and poor reservation in America, at this place school is not a high priority. And because of this, he decides to changes school to the neighbor towns school. Because of this decision, he is looked at as a traitor. And the book is therefore about how he handles having two lives and how that works out.

 

Setting

junior lives at a poor reservation (the rez) but he goes to school in another town called Reardan. The rez is a poor reservation, where school and education don’t matter. But Reardan is a town with white rich persons, where education and to have a Succesful life after school is a high priority. These places are two completely different places and Junior struggles to fit into both places.

 

Character development

In the beginning Junior is careful and å bit of a covert but in the ending, he gains a lot of confidence and gets a lot more self-respect.
