Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a hard read, probably the first epic fantasy in my knowledge that treats epic as everyday. Marlon James has written a beautiful, raw, physical book that to take another reviews words doesn't really care if you understand it or not. You will want to understand, you will want to gnaw the meat from the bone. The layers upon layers built in this world with language, storytelling and the mysticism of the world will draw you in.
This book will make you work for it, and if you cut through it all, you will be glad you did.
