I really enjoyed this book! This is a novel that focuses on the topics of revenge, culture, tradition, generational trauma/healing all through a fast paced tale of horror/supernatural. It was eerie, it was thrilling, and I couldn‘t put it down.

Satisfyingly creepy. Loses a little momentum in the middle, but the first and final sections more than make up for it.

One night before Thanksgiving, four friends--Ricky, Lewis, Cass and Gabe--young men from the Blackfeet reservation, went out on a hunt. In this superbly chilling horror novel, they face the consequences of their actions that night. I couldn't read this book before bedtime; granted, I am a horror lightweight, but something about the slow build of dread really got to me. Grisly and unforgettable.

Slightly underwhelming tale of four Native American men and their run-in with a ghostly elk. Lots of people loved it but I found it a bit of a struggle to be honest.

My goodness. Deeply disturbing, this book is dark. Firmly in the horror camp which I don‘t read often. The writing is crisp, authentic, and fantastic. Just amazing! Parts are really hard to get through-raw and vivid and so upsetting. Violent, harm on the page to people and animals-this one is tough, y‘all. But the story? Simply amazing. And good on #audio

kamoorephoto I was actually sent this to review before release, and I couldn‘t get through it because of the animal violence. And I like horror (A LOT) and like this author! It‘s just so hard for me to separate my feelings for animals from plot when it comes to reading a story like this. 3mo
SamAnne I have a hard time with animal violence. But I loved the themes in this book of insiders and outsiders and Indians trying to connect to traditions, and the tension between life on reservation and life off. It did make me an SGJ fan. But yeah…. (edited) 3mo

This book kept me entranced! I found that I‘d have to stop reading again and again just to absorb the action and horror of some scenes and the emotion and meaning of others. I liked the abrupt shift of POV between chapters and the subtle shifting within chapters. Excellent horror storytelling with heart and emotion, revenge and regret! I‘m looking forward to more from this author!! 4.5/5⭐️

I‘m not usually a fan of horror, but this book did pull me in. This was chosen as my bookclub monthly pick, so I had to finish it whether I wanted to or not, but I was glad I kept with it. I like the Native American perspective!

LisaLovesToRead I agree, @SamAnne. Have you found any other good ones by him? 2w
SamAnne @LisaLovesToRead I read Mongrels. A great premise: a family of werewolves trying to survive on the edge of society. And fun read. But I wished he had spent more time editing and tightening it up. He said he wrote it in two weeks. He is a really prolific writer. But maybe he could spend a little more time on editing. I didn‘t feel that way about Good Indians—thought it was great. Reading My Heart is a Chainsaw right now, jury still out. 1w

I really tried to get into this book but couldn‘t. I‘m beginning to think I might just not be a fan of the horror genre since I couldn‘t even finish Lovecraft Country. I did appreciate learning more about modern day Reservation life and the book is definitely worth it for that since it‘s not often that we see stories set on Reservations. I still recommend giving this book a chance even though it wasn‘t right for me.

Four guys from the Blackfoot Nation slaughter a herd of elk 10 years ago on restricted hunting grounds— and now they are haunted by their consciences and an elk spirit…

Engrossing, graphic and tense…

The audiobook narrator, himself a Blackfoot, narrates— sometimes a bit fast but nicely done overall 🎧

Not easy- it comes across as a stream of consciousness on whoever's POV we're following but it can be difficult to tell which POV we're on. And of course it's horror so there is gore and violence. If you get queasy, maybe skip it. I did enjoy this though- that omnipresent slasher figure turned a little on its head here. I also love a good revenge story and those about broken families.

Just getting into this one and am already finding it difficult. I turned down the speed back to just normal because I think part of it is the narration- I can't quite put my finger on it but I know it's happened with other male narrators where the narrations kind of comes out as a stream of consciousness and I find that hard to get into, I think?

FantasyChick I find that a lot with this author's writing. The narrative is very run-on in anything I've read of him. I actually set this one aside for a bit and thought I'd try the audio instead. My hold just came in lol. 7mo
Andrea4 @FantasyChick oh ok, well maybe it's not just the narration then. I also don't feel a little crazy for thinking so 7mo
FantasyChick @Andrea4 Definitely not crazy. I've read 2 previous books by him (both female MC) and it's the same pattern: run on, stream of consciousness narration, slow and hard to follow begin then kick starts like holy hell for the remainder of the book - with the same narration style and just as confusing....only faster paced 🤣 Hard to follow but pretty good reads all around for the most part haha 7mo
Andrea4 @FantasyChick yea it seems fast in the way it's written but so far the plot is slow. But given the reviews and the fact that I'm a sucker for a good horror story, I'm wanting to stick with it 7mo

And vengeance against men I could care less about cause they were literally all the same character, I just had to abandon this at 50%

Wow. This book will stay with me. Horror, not my go to genre. TW for violence against animals and humans. Also TW if you really hate basketball. So many powerful themes explored in a raw unvarnshied way. Set among the Blackfeet (and Crow). Themes of urban and reservation Indian life, loss of and reckoning with tradition, violence against indigenous women, reckoning with past transgressions. Not for everyone but a 5 star read for me.

SamAnne I want to read more Stephen Graham Jones. I‘m not a horror fan but can read about violence if it is serving a larger story that is well written and has a point to make. Littens any recommendations for what to read next by him? And his acknowledgment at the end of the book made me weepy!!!! (edited) 9mo

There was some really excellent writing here and a chilling story of identity and revenge, but the pacing was a problem. Several key scenes were far too long and the minute detail made me feel it might be more effective as a film. TW for graphic violence against animals and people #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks
