JAMAICA, 1976

Seven gunmen storm Bob Marley's house, machine guns blazing. The reggae superstar survives, but the gunmen are never caught.

From the acclaimed author of The Book of Night Women comes a dazzling display of masterful storytelling exploring this near-mythic event. Spanning three decades and crossing continents, A Brief History of Seven Killings chronicles the lives of a host of unforgettable characters - slum kids, one-night stands, drug lords, girlfriends, gunmen, journalists, and even the CIA. Gripping and inventive, ambitious and mesmerising, A Brief History of Seven Killings is one of the most remarkable and extraordinary novels of the twenty-first century.

I did try, and I enjoyed James' style of writing in several different tones, it wasn't even the taunting amount of voices. I just couldn't get _that_ interested in Jamaican political history, nor read almost 700 pages' worth of unhappiness and violence, so I decided to close the covers on page 34/688. Skim reading from different days revealed nothing I would have wanted to follow, so best to let go and grab the next one on the pile.
