King says that satire comes from mistrust. That's evident. What isn't apparent is who the target audience really is. The book is well-written contemporary read that's mostly a smooth read albeit with constant interruptions and interludes that seemingly make no sense but more likely are just over my head.
The book takes place in Southern Alberta and tells a contemporary story that questions traditions but at times, in a very indirect way. There's a heavy reliance on Coyote to be a trickster and a lot of the nonsense that is written seems to be irrelevant.
Names seem to be significant but half the time they aren't made clear as to why or what we're supposed to get from it. The satire oozes from the page and the important questions and challenges about indigenous people's in Canada are also obvious. As well as relations to tradition and questions of Why. But there's enough disjointedness to make me wonder what I'm missing and if I'm really missing it, or it's just fluff.

*No Spoilers*. (REVIEW - WEEK 16, YEAR 4)
