Month, October 2014 This is a book that I did not expect to enjoy Having finished itand feeling, as I do now, that A Brief History of Seven Killings is one of the best books Ive read all yearI went back and identified the reasons why I did not expect to like it Reason 1 The story is an oral history told in multiple voices thats true, but James enormous talent makes the multiple voices work Reading the novel is an immersive experiencethe characters are real, they are engaging, and James uses them to look at all sides of the story Yes, the multiple points of view are difficult at first, but each voice quickly distinguishes itself as unique and important the payoff is a novel of sweeping scope and emotion Reason 2 Many of the characters speak in Jamaican patois like many readers, Im not a big fan of dialect on the page Tell me what they say, not necessarily how they say it But James pulls it off with remarkable ease I expected the patois to start to grate once I got further into the book It never did The language only added to my understanding of the story and its characters Reason 3 Violence this is not an easy book, particularly when it comes to violence It starts early, and theres a lot of it certainly than seven killings But its there for a reason By showing the violence, the poverty, and the struggle to survive in 70s Jamaica, James illustrates how the ghetto can change a person Over time, we see how every man and woman is changed Reason 4 Its about Jamaica I hesitate to admit that I wasnt initially interested in a book set in Jamaica Am I just not interested in a world so different from mine Whatever the underlying reason, I was wrong to think that way I could take the easy route and say that this novel is about something than Jamaica, but that seems obvious All I can say is these people were real to me And like all great novels, James work drew me in, entertained me, and changed me in ways I could not have anticipated Chris SchluepHow to describe Marlon Jamess monumental new novel A Brief History of Seven Killings Its like a Tarantino remake of The Harder They Comebut with a soundtrack by Bob Marley and a script by Oliver Stone and William Faulkner, with maybe a little creative boost from some primo ganja Its epic in every sense of that word sweeping, mythic, over the top, colossal and dizzyingly complex Its also raw, dense, violent, scalding, darkly comic, exhilarating and exhaustinga testament to Mr Jamess vaulting ambition and prodigious talent.Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times A tour de force an audacious, demanding, inventive literary work Wall Street Journal Thrilling, ambitiousBoth intense and epic Los Angeles Times Nothing short of awe inspiring Entertainment Weekly Aprismatic story of gang violence and Cold War politics in a turbulent post independence Jamaica The New Yorker Exploding with violence and seething with arousal, the third novel by Marlon James cuts a swath across recent Jamaican historyThis compelling, not so brief history brings off a social portrait worthy of Diego Rivera, antic and engag, a fascinating tangle of the naked and the dead The Washington Post Marlon James is a virtuoso the novel is an epic of postcolonial fallout, in Jamaica and elsewhere, and Americas participation in that history the book is not only persuasive but tragic, though in its polyphony and scope its than that.It makes its own kind of music, not like Marleys, but like the tumult he couldnt stop New York Times Book Review Brilliantly executed The novel makes no compromises, but is cruelly and consummately a work of art The Minneapolis Star Tribune An excellent new work of historical fiction part crime thriller, part oral history, part stream of consciousness monologue Rolling Stone An impressive feat of storytelling raw, uncompromising, panoramic yet meticulously detailed The Jamaica portrayed here is one many people have heard songs about but have never seen rendered in such arresting specificityand if they have, only briefly Chicago Tribune James has written a dangerous book, one full of lore and whispers and history a great book James nibbles at theories of who did what and why, and scripts Marleys quest for revenge with the pace of a thriller His achievement, however, goes far beyond opening up this terrible moment in the life of a great musician He gives us the streets, the people, especially the desperate, the Jamaicans whom Marley exhorted to Open your eyes and look within Are you satisfied with the life your living The Boston Globe I highly recommend you pick A Brief History of Seven Killings up As a book of many narrators, this novel reminds me of Roberto Bolano s The Savage Detectives NPR, All Things Considered A strange and wonderful novelMr Jamess chronicle of late 20th century Jamaican politics and gang wars manages consistently to shock and mesmerise at the same time The Economist A sweeping novel that touches on family, friendship, celebrity, art, sexuality, ghetto politics, geopolitics, drug trade, gender, race and , sending the reader from Jamaica to New York via Miami and Cuba and back Newsweek Rendered with virtuosic precision and deep empathy Time The way James uses language is amazing.Vigorous, intricate and captivating, A Brief History of Seven Killingsis hard to put down Ebony Jamess masterful novel radiates its a character driven tale that takes place in a maelstrom of guns, drugs and politics Playboy Technically astounding a wildly ambitious and brilliant bookthis stunning counterfactual fiction evokes both the pungency of Faulkners Southern gothic Yoknapatawpha novels and the wild tabloid noir of James Ellroys White Jazz Marlon James raises fictions ante throughout this bravura novel Pittsburgh Post Gazette Like a capacious 19th century novel crossed with a paranoid Don DeLillo conspiracy theory thrillerthe book rewards time spent, bringing a complex perspective on violence, corruption, and the untidiness of humanity to vivid life and astonishing detail It makes you want to rush out and read everything else James has written The Philadelphia Inquirer A gripping tale in which music, drugs, sex, and violence collide with explosive results Bustle An exuberant, Balzacian novel by self described post post colonialist writer who is at ease with several canons, traditions, and dialects
