    It seems rather simplistic to say the book isn’t enjoyable especially since I doubt that’s what the author was aiming for in the first place but it’s certainly no easy fare either way While it’s sold as a fantasy novel it’s styled in

By now one can easily identify certain features that define the Jamesian style cinematic violence shameless sexuality perverse sharp humor and wit flawlessly rendered settings and virtuosic rhythmic language There is also the strong presence of the fantastic ghosts and spirits obeah women and demons who haunt the pages of his visceral storiesBlack Leopard Red Wolf finds Marlon James at the peak of his powers unafraid to shed the cloak of realism that won him the Man Booker prize in favor of a full blown epic fantasy saga And at a time when genre snobbery is at an all time high In the hands of this master novelist the genre s conventions are blown apart and reassembled as something bold and subversive aware of its capaciousness but incredibly nuanced and carefully built It is a novel that resists categorization and description set as it is in an impeccably and exhaustively researched world of folklore and myth drawn from regions of Central and West Africa and exploratory of contemporary themes of gender euality and political corruption ueer identity and the exploration of love and glorious sex between black men The characters in this novel are sublimely realized So much care went into their conception and I was stunned by the depth and range of emotion MJ was able to coax from his sundry band of flawed creatures Defying the Western belief in one definitive version of a story BLRW is structured as an oral epic in which stories lead to stories which lead to yet ultimately providing the reader with a conundrum of reliability who tells the truth and whose story is being told Marlon James chooses to leave that entirely up to the reader There are many elusive layers of detail to sift through from the very beginning a test of endurance almost asking do you really want to hear this story But once past its shadowy prologue the story proceeds in a frenetic rush of action that totally engages the senses creating an insanely compulsively addictive reading experience Read this for the beautiful depiction of ueer love that is the true heart of the novel a total subversion of masculine isms and male sexuality in literature Or read it for the dejected women who rail against a corrupt patriarchy giving voice to the trauma and abuse suffered at the hands of thoughtless men Read it for the thrill of the uest the adventure replete with monsters and demons cities in the sky and markets where witches trade in baby parts among countless other darkly fantastic elements The immensity of adventure in this novel lends itself to an immensity of purpose which takes familiar novelistic themes and fantasy genre tropes and radically molds them into a form both new and hypnotic in its scope and imaginative fearlessness

In the first novel in Marlon James's Dark Star trilogy myth fantasy and history come together to explore what happens when a mercenary is hired to find a missing child Tracker is known far and wide for his skills as a hunter He has a nose people say Engaged to track down a mysterious boy who disappeared three y. NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NO THANK YOU NOPE to say this isnt for me is an understatement but to claim this is a book for the masses is just a straight up lie this has been pitched as one of the most buzz worthy books of 2019 and i had really high hopes for this but it takes a very particular kind of person to enjoy this story and that person is definitely not me i have a lot of thoughts about this so bear with me honestly this is the most pretentious book i have ever read its so far beyond high brow its in an obnoxious league all on its own james employs every literary device possible to transform his words into riddles half truths and vague mysteries as a reader i dont mind having to sometimes work for a story some of the best stories take patience to dissect deeper meanings but what is really happening here is marlon james hiding behind his fancy words and complicated sentences to distract the reader from the lack of substance and development the rhetoric in this story is dense convoluted and bogged down with false promises of something worth reading the prose is evasive and meandering dragging the reader around and around in circles without an end in sight its honestly a disorganised and conceited mess also the amount of lewdness in the book is obscene im not easily deterred by things sexual in nature but this is too extreme for me a big neon flashing trigger warning is necessary for the following rape gang rape pedophilia bestiality incest mutilation of bodies graphic murder physical and emotional abuse repetitious orgies torture misogyny etc and none of it has any relevance to the plot or progression of the storyline i understand that mythology doesnt shy away from such brutality but there is a difference between being aware and just being down right offensive and this book is the latter such a lack of humanity ensures there is nothing redeemable or relatable about this book had this been a simple story about a tracker and a shapeshifter in search of a missing boy deeply rooted in african mythology and cultural folklore fantasy i would have loved this to bits the concept is phenomenally creative but this book is nothing that it claims to be so if you want to read a book that deceivingly promises a story lush with cultural richness and imaginative fantasy but is polluted with haughty notions of grandeur and overwhelmingly unnecessary vulgarity then look no further because this is the book for you okay rant over 15 stars

I surrenderI can handle many things as a readerThe highly stylized dense prose when you don t really understand what s going on but just have to immerse yourself in a narrative until it starts making sense All the raping and gore and general fixation on penis as THE center of everyone s worldMessiness of time linesJames uses every tool in his toolbox of pretentious literary devices If he wants to dedicate half a page to explaining that Leopard smells like ass ok fine go for it highart I can deal with these things and I am willing to work hard while readingBut this story needed at least a little bit of grounding in something real something relatable and human The last straw for me was the realization that James would never allow his characters to talk to each other in any other way but riddles faux deep statements and stories about killings and rapes of children women and men What s left to relate to then How to connect with a story that doesn t give you anything to tether you to itI can t do it
