Flight tells the story of a young Indian named Zits, orphaned and living in foster care, until someone he meets influences him and he ends up opening fire on customers in a bank. Zits is shot in the head and dies...but then wakes up in another body in the past. He continues to bounce from body to body through different time periods. Sometimes the body he inhabits are Indians (though he doesn't necessarily understand their language), sometimes they're white, though they often have some contact with Indians. I'm not sure I understand the meaning behind each of these episodes, and I haven't thought about it too deeply, but I'm sure there's some connection. But the writing is lovely, and the story flows smoothly from one time travel episode to the next. Does Zits learn anything from his experiences? We don't really find out, and the ending is a bit too treacly and sappy for my tastes. I'm categorizing the book as a fantasy due to the time travel aspect, and as young adult based on the age of the protagonist and the fact that Alexie has backed way off on the use of "bad" language. While I enjoyed the book, I don't think it'll stick with me very long the way some of Alexie's other books have.
