Ten or so months later and I have finally finished reading A Brief History of Seven Killings. Given the number of characters, the range of locations and the time span covered by the book, this is not perhaps surprising. In some ways it is like Game of Thrones in its parallel but interlinked narratives and level of violence but A Brief History of Seven Killings is set in the all too real world of the ghetto in Jamaica and in New York in the 1970s and 1980s.
