This book isn't one you can, or should, read quickly. It has to marinate in your mind as you slowly build up a tolerance to it, all the while questioning whether you can even stomach it or figure out what the hell is going on. With a non-linear, nested narration, you'll be frustrated until you realize how genius it all is when it starts making sense. The worldbuilding is unparalleled, and the story, setting, and characters are all unique. Badass.

I messed up my timing on my holds when this came out in February, and now I only have till Friday to start and finish this. Let‘s hope I can make it happen!

I totally envisioned a buff Marlon James as the main character Tracker. I think fantasy fans tired of the Eurocentric faux-medieval sub-genre will probably appreciate the African setting and folklore. As for the sex and violence, I didn‘t think it worse than GoT. But as lit fic I don‘t think it quite hits the mark. Too much posturing. James sure does love his fight scenes...a little too much.

I wanted to like this more than I actually did. First of all, stop saying it‘s like Game of Thrones just because it‘s fantasy. The plot was meandering and frustrating, with tangents that often went nowhere, and the use of interrogation as a framing device likewise never panned out. I liked the African mythology and how openly queer it was, but ultimately that was not enough to save this one for me.

jchawkins I'm totally with you on the "stop saying GOT just because it's fantasy" sentiment. The other one that gets me is when people won't even pick up a fantasy book because it ISNT like GOT...? 2w

Ahhhh that‘s 9 days of good reading time I will never get back. I should have bailed but a slogged it out so I could have this opinion.
This is such a mess, a story that meanders and dodges, monsters that just appear with little sense of tension. I am not even touching on the oft mentioned violence - it exudes a smug air of if you can‘t handle it then your not cool enough for Marlon James. I would say “kill your darlings” James.

BookwormM What was it with that hyena scene I mean really 🤮 2w

#camptob2019 Are any of you following along? I‘ve read all except the tagged book which I am currently reading. The most thought provoking are the titles from Valeria Luiselli and Susan Choi. Were I a judge, I‘d go with either one.🤔

Zelma I totally forgot about this. Thanks for the reminder! (edited) 3w
Rachel_nyc My library isn‘t being as cooperative as I‘d like so I am totally behind and will read through as I am able to get to the books. I am going to start Bowlaway later this week and have the others on hold. I‘m still undecided about whether to read the Marlon James novel. I can‘t wait to hear your thoughts on it. (edited) 3w

Ruthiella @Rachel_nyc Ah library holds! Sometimes they give and sometimes they giveth not!🤪 I got lucky though I did buy American Spy. But I think it‘s good to throw a debut author some cash. 3w
merelybookish I have not been very good about reading these. Trust Exercise is the only one I want to read and Ive already read Lost Children Archive. I figure I'll read the winner. 3w
Megabooks I tried to read Trust Exercise and didn‘t like it. I read Daisy when it came out. Definitely not worth all the praise it‘s getting. So far, a bust. ☹️ 3w
Suet624 I bailed on Bowlaway and read Daisy Jones. Hoping to get Lost Children soon from the library. 3w
Redwritinghood So far I‘ve only read Trust Exercise and Lost Children Archives, which was brilliant. I‘ve started but not finished Bowlaway and Black Leopard. 3w
Ruthiella @merelybookish I totally skipped the summer TOB last year. Your strategy is a good one. So many books so little time!😀 3w
Ruthiella @Suet624 Bowlaway was a little too quirky for me personally. I hope you like Lost Children. It‘s a book that gave me a lot of food for thought. 3w
Ruthiella @Redwritinghood So you‘ve read the winner then 🤣 I predict Luiselli now. Black Leopard isn‘t really my cup of tea, though it is growing on me some. 3w
BarbaraBB I can‘t find the time this year, though I normally love the Summer ToB. I read only Daisy, which gets way too much praise. I have Lost Children on my shelves and am interested in American Spy and Bowlaway. What made me decide to skip this summer, is that I should have to read Black Leopard. I really don‘t want to. I will read the winner in September though! 3w
BkClubCare Ach! American Spy and Lost Children came same day from library and I am only a few pages into the latter - probably won‘t finish before due. And I have just been notified that Trust Exercise is ready for pickup. I can‘t read that fast and might have to skip all three. 😥 3w
Ruthiella @BarbaraBB I love the TOB in general because when I participate it makes me read current books. But it is a reading commitment for sure! LOL I didn‘t love Daisy either... I wish I could have tried the audio but the wait list was too long! 3w
Ruthiella @BkClubCare I hate it when holds all come in like a rush like that! Of the three you mentioned only American Spy can be read “quickly “ IMO. It‘s plot heavy. 3w
BarbaraBB I‘ll follow your thoughts on the Tournament and am looking forward to your review of this one! (edited) 3w
Ruthiella @Megabooks I also thought Daisy was just OK though I get why others loved it. Too bad about Trust Exercise. I enjoyed it but I had to read the second part to reach that enjoyment. 3w
thebluestocking You‘re a machine!! 💙 I‘ve only read Daisy and then have only been able to get my hands on Bowlaway. I‘m following along with the weekly commentary though. And I‘ll definitely read the winner, of course. 3w
Ruthiella @thebluestocking The temptation was just too great not to read them all! 😀 3w

I had to pause because THIS moment gave me major The Name of the Wind vibes: ⠀

“'What have you been doing the last few years, Tracker?'⠀
'Too much and too little,' I said.⠀
'Tell me.'⠀
These are the stories I told the Leopard as I drank wine and he drank masuku beer at Kulikulo Inn" (105).⠀

I have to say that this book has been a slow starter for me, but I finally have started to build up some momentum . . . (continued in comments)

I‘m so happy to be done with this...

It was just too much in every way - too violent, too rape-y, too confusing, too dense, too unlikeable, too long, too complicated.

The only good thing I can say about it is that it does have a gorgeous cover. That‘s it.

Kalalalatja @8little_paws @LaurensLibrary @Geeklet I‘m not against violent books (I love GRRM‘s books), but something about this is just too much. It is so graphic and it feels like violence for violence‘s sake, and not for the story. 2mo

An epic fantasy told in a frame story about a man tasked with finding a missing boy along with witches, shapeshifters, and old friends and enemies. Meandering a bit in a way that reminds me of Name of the Wind. Definitely not an easy undertaking because it is certainly an *epic* fantasy. Hard to follow at times and sometimes a bit rambly. I enjoyed it but didn't love it.

This is not a book you read quickly. It is incredibly immersive and dense, but in a good way. I‘ve never read anything like this book, and it makes me, as a writer, feel rather simple minded.

The author wrote a story you either will commit to or you won‘t, and he doesn‘t care which way you choose. It‘s not easy or lighthearted. It is brutal and thick. But if you‘re willing to delve into depths you didn‘t know existed, you won‘t be disappointed.

Finally finished. I‘m between a so-so and a pan. But I could change my mind. 350 pages in I finally started to care a little bit for the characters. But, ultimately, at the end, not enough to justify such a slog of a book. Some beautiful writing but too much gratuitous violence me. A purposely convoluted and confusing plot meant to be a commentary on truth. I don‘t feel like James pulled it off. Felt like arrogance on the author‘s part.

Theaelizabet Opinions on this one are all over the map, aren‘t they? I began the library‘s audio, but decided I wasn‘t ready for it. I‘m back in the queue; we‘ll see what happens when it comes to me again. I think I may read A Brief History of Seven Killings first. 3mo
SamAnne I suspect my views on this book with seesaw and change. I liked the weaving of African mythology into the story. And at the novel‘s heart is the ways trauma esp. to children shape lives. I get why James made the novel so meandering and confusing. I wonder whether the book would have been better with a strong-willed editor. Or would that have altered the feel and intent? 3mo
SamAnne @Theaelizabet I‘ve heard the audio is really challenging to follow! I can‘t imagine doing it as an audio. 3mo

“Just as he wrote I would,so I did. Then the whole brilliance of his ways hit me like sudden wind blowing a flower in my face. Suffer through boredom to get to the bottom of truth. To get to truth at the bottom.” I think this is how Marlon James views his novel. 460 pages in and I still don‘t know if I will give it a thumbs up. Jury is still out although I am finally sucked in. It took 300 pages.

The writing style of the second half was very different from the first half. Unfortunately, I had to speed read it, because I hated the first half so much.
The author took a good story and drowned it sex and rape and violence and words for vagina that sound degrading. Wrapping that up in a forced meandering writing style the first half and you get this book.
The book could have been really good - that's what tips the scale from so-so to pan 😣

I think the reason this epic fantasy novel is compared to A Game of Thrones is because of the transgressive sex and violence, but I enjoyed it much more than GOT. The cast of characters fascinated me & I liked the recursive storytelling style. It‘s a sword & sorcery quest with a gay antihero, immersed in elements of African mythology plus Black Panther comic book stuff. Also, Dion Graham is a wonderful #audiobook narrator. #LGBTQ

BookishTrish I love Dion Graham too. It‘s why I‘m listening to a Dave Eggers novel when I don‘t like his writing. 4mo

I smiled every time there was reference to Owomowomowo Valley (or is it Owomowomowomowo Valley?) in this audiobook, just because of the sound of the name. Because it‘s an audiobook, I went to the internet to find the spelling. What I found instead was charismatic Prophet Jeremiah.
