Flight: A Novel Flight: A Novel by Sherman Alexie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is equal parts _Catcher in the Rye_, with its depiction of teen angst and delinquency and _Slaughterhouse Five_ with its time- and personality- jumping protagonist and initial inscription in homage to Vonnegut.

However, unlike his predecessors, Alexie's narrator brings much more redemption by the end of the novel, nearly- and I mean NEARLY- bringing this cynical reader to tears.
