Fantastic book!!

one of my favorite books

This book was honestly wild from start to finish. My senior year we had to do a book report on a book that won the Man Booker Prize, and I'm so glad I chose this one. The way the author captures the true feelings of the characters is represented so well, and the history of Kingston is spot on. James himself being from Kingston was able to understand the things he put his characters through, despite not having lived through any of the scenarios. It did get a little hard for me to follow at times because of the constant character jumps between each chapter, but regardless, I fell in love with the story, the characters, and the writing style.
