I am a big fan of Alexie's writing but somehow had managed not to read this, probably his most popular book, until recently. As usual, there's a playfulness at work underlying more serious social commentary. Alexie both exploits and calls into question the detective/mystery genre. The protagonist is so complex that I almost felt like I left the novel knowing less about the protagonist than I did in the opening chapters. For the entire novel I wondered what he was really capable of, and because of the enigmatic conclusion, I never really found out. Yet I found it strangely satisfying.
