4.5 stars. A very brutal but enlightening book. I enjoyed the writing as well as how the lives of all these people were woven together. It did seem to end a bit abruptly. I was looking for a few more ends to be tied up but overall an excellent read (or listen). ( )

Whoa, that packed an emotional punch. Great writing and would probably give it a higher rating if I was in a different state of mind. Just really hard to feel all the sadness and despair, I've been reading too many books like this and need a lighter read. I will read Wandering Stars when I'm in the right emotional place for it :) ( )

This book is an intense read and also a great one. It's gritty and dark and doesn't shy away from harsh realities. At the same time though, Orange shows that not every contemporary native experience is the same. Some never get mixed up in substance abuse though most in this story do. This balanced depiction makes the stories more honest and more real. No one story is uncomplicated with the featured character making hard decisions in a hard world - not all of them good.

This story made me feel lots of feelings. I began wondering about the native part of my family that I never got to know, I recognize the questions about identity raised within communities, spoken through the lips of these complicated characters. I'm reminded of how and why it was so easy to develop a drinking problem. This book is expertly crafted, tragic, compelling, exciting, and despite everything, it's not resigned. There's an energy that Orange keeps going throughout the book that builds and leaves you feeling like the story goes on without you there to witness it. I feel that it's important for every American to make this empathic connection to gain perspective and understanding and this book is an excellent means to that end. ( )

So good. There were a lot of characters to keep track with and I didn’t always succeed, but the story is powerfully beautiful and sad. The pacing of the novel is excellent, starts at a normal pace but by the end I tore through it. Some of the opening quotes were devastating. “In the dark times Will there also be singing? Yes, there will be singing. About the dark times” Bertold Brecht and “what strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is still about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters” Charles Baudelaire. Quite a remarkable book.

Characters here do not notice connections that might offer meaning even though they tell endless details. For those of us who may want literature to confirm human journeys, (or even reject them), this is boring stuff.
 
There There signals an exciting new era for Native American fiction. Orange lends a critical voice that at once denudes the reality of cultural genocide while evoking a glimmer of encouragement.
 
The network of characters in There There proves dizzying, but the multivocal nature of the book is a purposeful, intelligent strategy. It offers a glimpse of an interconnected life, a world in which small stones don’t just sink to the bottom of the sea but change tides.
 
This is a trim and powerful book, a careful exploration of identity and meaning in a world that makes it hard to define either.

The idea of unsettlement and ambiguity, of being caught between two worlds, of living a life that is disfigured by loss and the memory of loss, but also by confusion, distraction and unease, impels some of the characters, and allows the sound of the brain on fire to become dense with dissonance. Orange’s characters are, however, also nourished by the ordinary possibilities of the present, by common desires and feelings. This mixture gives their experience, when it is put under pressure, depth and a sort of richness.

In the dark times
Will there also be singing?
Yes, there will also be singing.
About the dark times.
--Bertolt Brecht

How can I not know today your face tomorrow, the face that is there already or is being forged beneath the face you show me or beneath the mask you are wearing, and which you will only show me when I am least expecting it?
--Javier Marias

The Drome first came to me in the mirror when I was six. Earlier that day my friend Mario, while hanging from the monkey bars in the sand park, said, Why's your face look like that?"

Just like the Indian Head test pattern was broadcast to sleeping Americans as we set sail from our living rooms, over the ocean blue-green glowing airwaves, to the shores, the screens of the New World.
Plenty of us are urban now. If not because we live in cities, then because we live on the internet. Inside the high-rise of multiple browser windows. They used to call us sidewalk Indians. Called us citified, superficial, inauthentic, cultureless refugees, apples. An apple is red on the outside and white on the inside. But what we are is what our ancestors did. How they survived. We are the memories we don’t remember, which live in us, which we feel, which make us sing and dance and pray the way we do, feelings from memories that flare and bloom unexpectedly in our lives like blood through a blanket from a wound made by a bullet fired by a man shooting us in the back for our hair, for our heads, for a bounty, or just to get rid of us.
They took everything and ground it down to dust as fine as gunpowder, they fired their guns into the air in victory and the strays flew out into the nothingness of histories written wrong and meant to be forgotten. Stray bullets and consequences are landing on our unsuspecting bodies even now.
...we know the smell of gas and freshly wet concrete and burned rubber better than we do the smell of cedar or sage or even fry bread—which isn’t traditional, like reservations aren’t traditional, but nothing is original, everything comes from something that came before, which was once nothing. Everything is new and doomed. We ride buses, trains, and cars across, over, and under concrete plains. Being Indian has never been about returning to the land. The land is everywhere or nowhere.
This there there. He hadn’t read Gertrude Stein beyond the quote. But for Native people in this country, all over the Americas, it’s been developed over, buried ancestral land, glass and concrete and wire and steel, unreturnable covered memory. There is no there there.
