The Least of My Scars by Stephen Graham Jones Quick Review

This book is not for the faint of heart for sure as a one star review for this book made me feel the need to read it. I've admired Jones for a while now and to be honest helped bring me out of my writing slump recently and while The Least of My Scars is not my favorite, I believe that its a work that will come around again for people to discover. Its worth discussing at the very least.

Its a page turner that yanks you around like an unmaintained amusement park ride. To be honest, I had to go back a couple of times to make sure I understood what was happening which some may feel is a fault...I didn't. This is one of the most violent books Ive read but the scenery in the apartment, which most of the book takes place, reminded me of a early, gritty David Fincher film, like Se7en or The Game.

Check out this book here!

Id be lying if I said I've read something like it before, but if you've recently read any of his work, The Only Good Indians or My Heart is a Chainsaw, this might throw you for a loop and I mean that in the best (and maybe the worst way possible).
