Leslie Marmon Silko's sublime Ceremony is almost universally considered one of the finest novels ever written by an American Indian. It is the poetic, dreamlike tale of Tayo, a mixed-blood Laguna Pueblo and veteran of World War II. Tormented by shell shock and haunted by memories of his cousin who died in the war, Tayo struggles on his impoverished reservation. After turning to alcohol to ease his pain, he strives for a better understanding of who he is.

It's a nice story. You'll have to get used to the flashbacks but it really does tell how the protagonist struggles with racism from Whites and Natives. Also is a chapter that shows how White beauty centric world effects women of color.

This book dealt with the gritty aspects of walking the line between two cultures and the impact that is has on the individual. It is easy to get lost between the flashbacks so this is one of those books that you really need to pay attention to if you don’t want to lose your place.

This book is deeper than it appears to be. It grabs your attention and holds into it until the end. The narrator was amazing and the different voices kept my interest. I would suggest this book to others who have a true passion for reading. The poems in this book are also phenomenal and adds too the quality of this book. I truly love and appreciate this book! Hopefully you will too.
