Summary
On December 3, 1976, just before the Jamaican general election and two days before Bob Marley was to play the Smile Jamaica Concert, gunmen stormed his house, machine guns blazing. The attack nearly killed the Reggae superstar, his wife, and his manager, and injured several others. Marley would go on to perform at the free concert on December 5, but he left the country the next day, not to return for two years.Deftly spanning decades and continents and peopled with a wide range of characters-assassins, journalists, drug dealers, and even ghosts-A Brief History of Seven Killings is the fictional exploration of that dangerous and unstable time and its bloody aftermath, from the streets and slums of Kingston in the 1970s, to the crack wars in 1980s New York, to a radically altered Jamaica in the 1990s. Brilliantly inventive and stunningly ambitious, this novel is a revealing modern epic that will secure Marlon James' place among the great literary talents of his generation.

For how long the book is I was happy that they did not have the same person narrate every character. I started reading this in paperback but i found the only way I was going to be able to finish it was through audiobooks. There are definitely some graphics that I could have done without. Overall Marlon James is a great author and very descriptive with is work.

The language is very raw. There should be a warning. The F word is very offensive to me.

The best book I have ever read. It grasp the essence of Caribbean life so well and the issues of class and race.
