I know this one is getting a lot of love but it just doesn't do much for me It's a short read so I don't feel particularly cheated by the time spent with it and although I found it pretty dull overall I feel largely ambivalent about the work as a whole The biggest barrier between me and the story was the writing style The writing was just too choppy for my tastes and the sentence constructions irked me How so Well a lot of the sentences it was written like this Our house like I said it was modular Anyway the house we were renting it was 1140 suare feet The difference it was that I wasn't asleep The reason I didn't it was that I think I finally went into shock The reason she got a different lightbulb it was that when she'd turned it on There's a sentence like this on damn near every page and frankly it irked the shit out of me This style of writing it was something that got old for me fastI did appreciate the focus on Native American myth and culture though and the ways in which it fueled this particular ghost story And while there were a couple really good scenes their impact was dulled with unnecessary wordiness This might have worked better as a short story but as a novella it feels too paddedNote I received an advanced copy of this title from the publisher via NetGalley

Mapping the Interior touched me in a way that's hard to define A young man missing and thinking of the father who died before he could really be known believes he saw his father coming through a doorway From there we learn about this young man his family Native American culture and superstitions In a way this could be interpreted as a ghost story In another interpretation it could be thought of a coming of age story with perhaps a little psychological horror on the side However it's interpreted whatever genre it's labeled the fact remains that it moves the reader It's a powerful piece of work I'm not going to go further into the plot because I think the reader should discover it for themselves I know that it brought me back to certain points in my childhood and how I felt about things but I can't seem to adeuately explain how it made me feel Mapping the Interior resonated deeply with me and I'll have to leave it at that I give it my highest recommendation You can order a copy here Mapping the InteriorThanks to Tor and to NetGalley for the e ARC of this novella in exchange for my honest review This is it

Mapping the InteriorY Instead of the people who could be there his mother or his brother the figure reminds him of his long gone father who died mysteriously before his family left the reservation When he follows it he discovers his house is bigger and deeper than he knewThe house is the ki. In death he had become what he never could in life And now he was backWhile walking through his house late one night a fifteen year old boy thinks he sees his long dead father stepping through a doorway What follows is an exploration of this young boy his family and Native American cultureI didn’t love this nor did I hate it – I guess I’m just uite ambivalent about it This is a really short novella and uite easy to just race through in one sitting It did have a couple of unsettling or tense moments and I liked the idea behind it but the actual writing itself put me off at times The sentences are uite choppy which will sometimes work for me but other times it will just irritate me – this was one of those timesMapping the Interior was a breath of fresh of air with regards to the Native American aspect I’ve never really read any books before that explore Native American culture or superstition so that was really interesting and uniue It also felt uite raw and personal with the protagonist and his brother who is being bullied coming across as particularly likeable I also enjoyed how the story just kept going down routes that I hadn’t anticipated although I feel like a lot of the meaning behind the story or the themes represented just went right over my head perhaps I’d have enjoyed it if I had picked up on thoseOverall this is a pretty original “ghost story” if you can even categorise it as that I just wish I had understood it It wouldn’t put me off reading from Stephen Graham Jones though
