In her quickly gentrifying rural lake town Jade sees recent events only her encyclopedic knowledge of horror films could have prepared her for in this latest novel from the Jordan Peele of horror literature, New York Times bestselling author Stephen Graham Jones. "Some girls just don't know how to die..." Shirley Jackson meets Friday the 13th in My Heart Is a Chainsaw, written by the author of The Only Good Indians Stephen Graham Jones, called "a literary master" by National Book Award winner Tananarive Due and "one of our most talented living writers" by Tommy Orange. Alma Katsu calls My Heart Is a Chainsaw "a homage to slasher films that also manages to defy and transcend genre." On the surface is a story of murder in small-town America. But beneath is its beating heart: a biting critique of American colonialism, Indigenous displacement, and gentrification, and a heartbreaking portrait of a broken young girl who uses horror movies to cope with the horror of her own life. Jade Daniels is an angry, half-Indian outcast with an abusive father, an absent mother, and an entire town that wants nothing to do with her. She lives in her own world, a world in which protection comes from an unusual source: horror movies...especially the ones where a masked killer seeks revenge on a world that wronged them. And Jade narrates the quirky history of Proofrock as if it is one of those movies. But when blood actually starts to spill into the waters of Indian Lake, she pulls us into her dizzying, encyclopedic mind of blood and masked murderers, and predicts exactly how the plot will unfold. Yet, even as Jade drags us into her dark fever dream, a surprising and intimate portrait emerges...a portrait of the scared and traumatized little girl beneath the Jason Voorhees mask: angry, yes, but also a girl who easily cries, fiercely loves, and desperately wants a home. A girl whose feelings are too big for her body. My Heart Is a Chainsaw is her story, her homage to horror and revenge and triumph.… (més)

Couldn’t do it. Jade needs therapy and I love horror and cheesy slashers, but nothing like this. Yikes. So disappointed since it sounded super interesting but then nothing but rambling from Jade.

Full of slasher nostalgia, this is a nonstop, movie-in-your-head thrill ride. With a little humor, teen angst, and a whole lot of blood, every horror fan will love this book! ( )

A ballistic horror missile of a book full of slasher movie mythology and darkly shining characters, especially Jade, our narrator. I really liked this. The unfolding tension and building of this town made for a hack-n-slash story that had real depth to it. Very good. ( )

Horror isn’t my favorite genre, but I had to check this one out since I was blown away by Jones’s writing in The Only Good Indians. This one has a different pace and feel to it, and in some ways, I liked it more. I was definitely happy to have Jade to root for, as well as the characters who made up her support system. I wasn’t torn about wanting to cheer on the monster this time, anyway. I was out of my element too because it’s pretty much a big valentine to slasher movies, a genre I’ve never really been into. I liked how the author made his references accessible by interspersing Jade’s extra credit projects for Mr. Holmes. It was a creative way to do an info dump that didn’t feel like an info dump, and her reports were entertaining.

It takes a while for the action to ramp up, and the reader spends a lot of time in Jade’s slasher-obsessed, lonely brain. For me, this was fine, because I like the way he writes, and it was interesting to be a passenger, pulled along as Jade’s mind flitted around.

I always read the acknowledgments, and the ones for this made me like the author even more as he talked about how the story evolved and thanked so many people who helped. I especially loved his words to his wife and kids.

I think I’m in for the long haul with this guy, but I know I’m not going to power through his older work like I sometimes do when I find an author I like. This book didn’t kill me like The Only Good Indians did, but I know he has that power, so I’ll be sure to pace myself. ( )

This book was an odd mix for me. I liked the MC having all this obsessive horror fan knowledge but it went on a little too long for me. I thought it was just my perception that he was trying to fit every horror movie possible in the book but then I found a link listing them all and it had 155 movies on it! I get the point but it got old for me fast. It wasn't helped by the fact that the middle really dragged but then the ending blood bath finally happened but definitely took too long to happen. It was still mostly entertaining and had likeable characters and, if you are a big horror movie fan, you will enjoy it. ( )

On the battered paper map that's carried the two of them across they're not sure how many of the American states now, this is Proofrock, Idaho, and the dark body of water before them is Indian Lake, and it kind of goes forever out into the night.
