    congratulations and ADORABLE!!

    this book is a little challenging at the outset, but if you stick with it, you will be rewarded like a motherfucker. (note: if that word upsets you, this book is not for you)

    it's not the length that is challenging, although 700 pages is a nice chunky brick of a book, and it's not the dialect, unless this is your first exposure to patois. even then, this is a multi-voiced novel, with several characters who are not jamaican, so unlike The Book of Night Women, there are many parts that are not w

However Marlon James' A Brief History of Seven Killings is more than just a wild ride, it's a brutal masterpiece that deserves its place as one of the best books of this decade so far.

    James weaves a Dickensian plot around Jamaican history and culture. The entire plot is based on the events surrounding the attempted assassination of Bob Marley in 1976. It's a fictionalised history of Jamaica from the 1970s through to the 1990s. I must admit that my knowledge of Jamaican history and politics and culture is laughably sparse. I'd tried ackee and saltfish once and didn't really like it so I don't think Marlon James could have found a whiter canvas to paint his story upon.

It is an incredibly long listen. You become involved in the stories of these Jamaicans, Cubans and Americans, dead and alive all acted out in the narration by actors who feel their parts. It is sheer genius and so I'm immediately reading the paperback. Once I've finished it, I'll review the book properly. Suffice it to say that it didn't resonate with me as The Book of Night Women did. It did take me, though, into a parallel universe that I have never experienced but oft

    A Brief History of Seven Killings PDF ï A Brief MOBI brief mobile, history mobile, seven kindle, killings mobile, A Brief download, History of ebok, A Brief History of Seven KillingsBrief History of pdf, A Brief History of Seven Killings MOBIUpdate I've just watched Autopsy: Bob Marley. Watching the true story of the politics and events surrounding the attempted assassination on Bob Marley involving the CIA, made this book, even in retrospect, really come alive. The spin the author put on it, was the same conclusion as the documentary, although they were very circumspect about putting it. It doesn't matter whether you read the book or see the programme first, each adds to the other.

    A Brief History of Seven Killings PDF ï A Brief MOBI brief mobile, history mobile, seven kindle, killings mobile, A Brief download, History of ebok, A Brief History of Seven KillingsBrief History of pdf, A Brief History of Seven Killings MOBIMarlon James takes us through an insanely violent roller coaster ride where various actors in the drama surrounding the house invasion and assassination attempt on Reggae Uberstar Bob Marley's Kingston, Jamaica house in December 1976 tell the story in a series of Faulkneresque first person dialogs. How much of this is factual, I do not know, but based on the fact that James had a team of researchers and took four years to write the novel as well as the fact that the story does seem plausible if simultaneously shocking and heinous. The gang violence in the Caribbean and in Jamaica in particular is legendary, the CIA's plausibly deniable involvement with drug cartels and interference with democratic (or demagogic) processes is entirely believable. Each of the c

The link where you can see the film is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qj10m...

    Update: Apparently there is going to be a TV series on HBO based on the book. It is going to be interesting. Can't wait to actually hear the patois!!

    A Brief History of Seven Killings PDF ï A Brief MOBI brief mobile, history mobile, seven kindle, killings mobile, A Brief download, History of ebok, A Brief History of Seven KillingsBrief History of pdf, A Brief History of Seven Killings MOBII’ve been reading this book for an entire year, and it’s not been easy. At times I wanted to pull my hair out and scream, at times I wanted to throw the thing at the wall and be done with it, but I persisted. I made myself get to the end, and whilst I can say that I didn’t entirely enjoy the experience, I do appreciate James’ narrative style.

    His deft manipulation of language is clearly the success of his storytelling. The way he writes reflects his characters. This may sound like a simple idea, though in reality it is one of the hardest to pull off. The narrative reflects the feel of the characters on a macro and micro scale. He writes in a different style for eac

    A Brief History of Seven Killings PDF ï A Brief MOBI brief mobile, history mobile, seven kindle, killings mobile, A Brief download, History of ebok, A Brief History of Seven KillingsBrief History of pdf, A Brief History of Seven Killings MOBIA Brief History of Seven Killings should not be evaluated based on its supposed brevity, nor on the amount of killings featured in the book. The title could be the source of misguided expectations in this regard, as it is being overly modest on both counts. But if you're expecting a clever, fast, insightful, colourful and authentic novel, you won't be disappointed.

    My first instinct when I see a book that has won a prize (in this case the Man Booker) is to have zero expectations of it. Even less. I usually tend to avoid those prize-winning novels, because I always imagine a stuffy jury of academics wearing woolen suits in August and greasy glasses on the tips of their veiny noses, deciding which high-brow book to call brilliant. All this just to make the masses who bu
