    La schiappa che fa a pugni con la realtà

    Come tanti libri di protagonisti "schiappe" Il diario dell'indiano part-time è infarcito di umorismo e leggera demenzialità all'americana: piacevole, veloce.

    Eppure, nonostante la fusione (abbastanza malriuscita, forse) con le illustrazioni di Ellen Forney, sono i temi duri affrontati dal libro: non aspettatevi momenti di spensierata allegria da sit-com perché per tutto sul tenace protagonista Junior il libro aleggia l'ombra della "dura realtà" con cui fare i conti: migliori amici "che ti odiano", alcolismo, povertà, conflitti razziali...

    Insomma, per il suo genere la "schiappa" indiana ha un nemico molto più tosto rispetto ai classici bulletti americani: morte e realtà. Pare ancora un libro per soli bambini?

    An amazing coming of age story. I can't recommend this highly enough. Funny, smart, moving. It's got the lot. A brilliant main character, who's full of guts and wit and just won't give up.

    Iniziato e finito in una sera :) sembra un Adrian Mole più motivato e meno gratuitamente scurrile. Bello!

    Uno dei libri più acuti ed intelligenti. Molto bello, interessante, denso di significati e di spunti vitali.

    I read this book because I will be handing it out for World Book Night 2012.

    This was a super quick read. The language, subject matter, and heart of this story is all very much aimed at teens, yet somehow it felt more young than that. Perhaps it was the cartoons interspersed. I think I would have preferred it if the illustrations were sketches instead, as they are in a few places. The cartoons kept me distanced. On the plus side I liked the voice and the humor. The overall themes of race and poverty were not new to me, but they were explored deftly.

    兩小時之間,大約有四~五次的大笑與正經

    能夠讓一本書在電影一般的篇幅中,製造出比一般電影還要多而深的高潮,堪稱經典。
