The main character Blue can be quite an infuriating character to read with his naivety. You would expect a guy that age that has lived in the West so long to have more sense.

I have read "Ragtime", "The Book of Daniel", "Sweet Land Stories". All three were better than "Welcome to Hard Times". The writing in this book was very unclear and confusing at times (maybe it's just me?)
