The rave reviews for this book were initially what drew me in. I have heard nothing but good things about Stephen graham Jones writing style. He is clearly very talented. But I really couldn’t get through this one. I tried to put it down and come back to it periodically. It’s beautifully written but just did not work for me. An interesting take on grief and guilt but slightly too violent and gritty for my taste.overall a disappointment for me but clearly a winner for others

Synopsis: 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.
