A review by dcox83
Black Leopard, Red Wolf, by Marlon James


I really loved this book. A fantasy novel using African mythology and story telling techniques telling the story of a homosexual narrator as he adventures through the world. I was also impressed with the way James pulled in modern day superhero mythology into the story without beating us over the head with it.

I know some people are turned off by the writing, but readers should approach it as literature. A book that takes focus and concentration to read, not a breezy plot heavy summer read.
