An amazing book, if you have curiosity and determination. Not for Speed Readers!!
Keep an ipad next to you with a link to a Jamaican Patois site (there are a few) A tremendous study of music, Jamaica, Caribbean politics and intrigue, history and culture.
In my opinion richly deserving of the Booker, probably the most interesting read I've had this year.
I loved it, but it is definitely not for everyone!
