Book Review | The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones

The Only Good Indians is a horror novel from Stephen Graham Jones. 

The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones

Seamlessly blending classic horror and a dramatic narrative with sharp social commentary, The Only Good Indians follows four American Indian men after a disturbing event from their youth puts them in a desperate struggle for their lives. Tracked by an entity bent on revenge, these childhood friends are helpless as the culture and traditions they left behind catch up to them in a violent, vengeful way.
I love how you just don't know what to expect when reading one of Stephen Graham Jones' books. I'm also going to be posting a review of his The Night of the Mannequins novella soon, and I will be reiterating the same thing. His writing is unpredictable in the best of ways.

This may have been the wrong time for me to read The Only Good Indians, though. It was confusing, and my current attention span may have made it even harder for me to pay attention overall.

I'm such a fan of Stephen Graham Jones, and I will continue to read whatever he writes. Even though I'm middle of the road on The Only Good Indians, I still want to encourage people to pick it up - especially folks who are already fans.

Here are some of the early reviews that I loved and think you should check out:

  1. This is what I would call literary horror, and I know it doesn't work for everyone. I'm looking forward to your review for Night of the Mannequins! Thanks for linking my review😁

  2. I had some of the same problems. Loved the writing, but the confusion really got to me in the end too, and maybe I just wasn't in the right mood at the time.

  3. I Loved this one too but I know a few people it didn't work for. I'm reading Night of the Mannequins now.
