The world he's created with Deacon, aka Sportcoat, a hard-drinking, storyteller with a heart of gold, and his sidekick, Hot Sausage, is one filled with challenge, cops, drug dealers, Mafia types and church women.
The use of hilarious ghetto phrases Yo cheese done slipped off yo cracker adds to the fun, while the plot unravels steadily.
Driven by themes of Storytelling at its best! Driven by themes of redemption, loyalty, trust and faith, Deacon clings to the 'notion' of his deceased wife who acts as his guide.
Characters of depth, plot twists and humor are important elements for reader engagement. McBride demonstrates his mastery by creating a compelling story that lingers in our hearts and minds.
Guaranteeing a nearly perfect rating from the masses and broadcasting my wrongreader status far and wide.
The premise here starts off fairly simple. A cloudy September afternoon in What follows is a story about the neighborhood surrounding the Five Points Baptist Church and the various characters who reside near there.
Church ladies, maintenance men with a government cheese side hustle, bumbling hitmen, a mobster known as the Elephant, and on and on. Serious messages are delivered with humor sometimes to the point of being the annoying slapstick variety as you meander through the interconnected tales of a possible missing treasure and missing Christmas club cash.
This was my second go around with McBride and at this point I feel comfortable saying my lack of stars comes from a place of enjoying the tale but not the telling.
This had a lot of potential, and maybe it fell victim to the hype train for me. Sep 27, Kasa Cotugno rated it it was amazing Shelves: loc-usa-nyc , culture-african-american , arc , era-lateth-century , author-visit.
Brooklyn A housing project with a view of the Statue of Liberty. Heroin is beginning its invasive inroads into the population.
That's the setup. Populated with the most colorful, diverse cast imaginable, award winner James McBride has accomplished the difficult feat of making each character come alive, every set up believable and relatable.
As their stories are revealed and intertwine, the rascals and heroes of these mean streets are presented with such heart and beauty, I was sorry when Brooklyn As their stories are revealed and intertwine, the rascals and heroes of these mean streets are presented with such heart and beauty, I was sorry when it wrapped up.
The writer who came to mind most clearly during the reading was Jimmy Breslin, who shares his insider's love of New York, his journalistic background, his talent for dialogue and beautifully wrought farce.
Which is not to omit the larger implications behind the humor. Well done. Oct 30, David Schaafsma rated it really liked it Shelves: fictionst-century.
This James McBride can write! After reading a slew of grim, apocalyptic books I turned to the kind of book people used to call rollicking, where we meet a wild cast of nicknamed characters who get involved in a wild goose chase of an adventure.
Now, in keeping with the random synchronicity of my reading, this book does document a time, , when knives changed to guns as booze turned to heroin in Brooklyn, it doesnt lie about that, but the emphasis in the story is more on hope than many of the This James McBride can write!
Deacon King Kong is less about the horrors and more about storytelling as the glue that holds a community of diverse elements--folks from Louisiana, Barbados, Puerto Rico, and so on--together.
A paen to a time when we were less divided based on our differences than today, less angry and fearful.
As someone who lived and loved , it felt very nostalgic to me in many ways. The story is kind of a hoot. Basically shoots off his ear. Will Deems find and kill his old coach?!
Will he ever play baseball again?! There are many threads in this book, but the central shaggy dog story is about a guy who wants help finding a valuable piece of art work said to be worth 3 million.
And no one knows where this piece of artwork is. A fun, funny, rollicking book, with an unlikely romance between an older black church lady and an even older Irish cop that gives the tale warmth.

There were moments that I did not want to put the book down. And, then, there were moments that I was ready to throw the book at the wall and pick up something else.
As a reader, I want to thank James McBride with leaving me with some jewels that I shall always I have been very anxious about reviewing this book.
As a reader, I want to thank James McBride with leaving me with some jewels that I shall always remember: " The best way I can describe it is back to the roller coaster analogy.
However, there are two coasters. One with several hills, flips and dips. And, another that looks like it is going to thrill you, but once you get on, you realize that it is all an optical illusion.
It is just a baby roller coaster that you wish you never stood in line for. Unfortunately, Deacon King Kong is the latter. Jan 15, Will rated it it was amazing Shelves: giveaways.
James McBride has written an entertaining and very funny, witty novel with laugh-out-loud dialogue and even a touch of slapstick. However, while humorous, this is also a very serious and disturbing novel as McBride confronts issues of racism and the problems that often spring from public housing such as poor conditions, violence and drugs.
A tricky balance, but one that McBride handles 4. A tricky balance, but one that McBride handles successfully, as he has in his previous work.
Set in New York, a large cast of characters populate the book and give voice to the story: those living in public housing and its church members, police, drug dealers and those involved in Italian organized crime.
McBride excels here, his characters come to life, some nearly jumping off the page. While the characters can often be comic in nature, McBride also writes scenes that are heartfelt and true, scenes of great poignancy.
I must return to the dialogue in regards to the characters. The affectionate verbal sparring between the central character, Sportcoat, and his friend Hot Sausage, two elderly drunks, is simply priceless.
The next time a friend is talking crazy nonsense, I hope I remember the expression Is your cheese done slid off your cracker?
I had never heard that one and it, along with many others, delighted me. As far as the narrative itself, this is where I could pick at things and I needed to step back for a few days before a final rating and review.
McBride takes the reader on a wild ride. Unfortunately, at times, I thought it all a bit convoluted with a raise of an eyebrow at certain turns in the plot.
While completely enjoying the ride, I had some mixed feelings on structure and whether the story worked completely.
I had to stop and remind myself that this really is, in essence, a comedic novel and that what I was apt to criticize was generally in keeping with that basic concept.
In the end, I decided that I had such a good time that I could ignore that need to pick at the plot details. This book was a balm for my soul, a portrait of a black church community circa with sweet characters well, most of them , interconnections that stretch back decades, and a plot with more than one mystery at its heart.
I loved it. May 11, Amerie added it Shelves: amerie-s-book-club. In his deft hands, the exploration of such themes within a premise in which a perpetually drunk deacon shoots a teen drug dealer is not depressing or gratuitous, but intimate, funny, and full of hope.
And most importantly, stay safe! Aug 17, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: bookclub-booktopia , oprah-bookclub-reads , nyt-topbook-of Which had emptied of boats, ships, tankers, dreams, money, and opportunity the moment the colored and the Latinos arrived.
And still New York blamed you for all its problems. What a great read! James McBride brings the characters in this book alive. Sportcoat, Sausage and Sister Gee will stay with me for a long time.
Jul 02, Gretchen Rubin added it. A wonderful, sprawling novel with lots of engaging character and suspense about why they're doing what they're doing.
McBride always brings the fire, and this one is no exception. A host of quirky characters drives this neighborhood novel brilliantly told with vigorous prose that ties in neighborhood history.
More to come Deacon Sportcoat is derisively McBride always brings the fire, and this one is no exception. Deacon Sportcoat is derisively referred to as Deacon King Kong after the homemade hooch made by his friend, Rufus.
Obviously being a frequent imbiber of the liquor had earned him this moniker. Sportcoat was never fond of the name, but that never stopped him from overindulging.
The church is not perfect and neither is their favorite deacon, Sportcoat. When Sportcoat shoots the local drug dealer, everyone fears for Sportcoat's life.
He remains unfazed. Sportcoat feels like he has established enough of a rapport with Deems Clemons the local drug dealer that should give him some latitude.
How will this play out? There is a mini side plot going on in the novel, and though it adds some mystery I didn't think it was entirely necessary and serves as a minor irritant.
The way McBride allows this to unfold is gorgeous, heartening in its denouement. This was thoroughly enjoyable and sure to be an early favorite.

Great story telling. Liked it even more than The Good Lord Bird. Aug 18, David rated it really liked it. Deacon Cuffy "Sportcoat" Lambkin walks out into the plaza of the Causeway Housing Projects, bombed on homemade King Kong and shoots 19 year old drug dealer Deems Clements' ear clean off.
Despite not remembering a thing about the incident, Deacon "King Kong" is clearly a dead man walking. Despite its pulpy start, this is really a golden hued memory of growing up in the projects in the late 's.
While Spielberg defined the 80's in suburban America, this is McBride's recollection of growing up Deacon Cuffy "Sportcoat" Lambkin walks out into the plaza of the Causeway Housing Projects, bombed on homemade King Kong and shoots 19 year old drug dealer Deems Clements' ear clean off.
It's a vibrant multi-cultured community where the Irish cop is honest and in love with the black minister's wife, where the Italian smuggler wants nothing more than to settle down with a plump wife but still lives with his mother who gardens with the drunk black deacon.
Where the Dominican numbers runner is honest and the drug dealers leave the plaza empty till noon so the churchgoers can gossip around the flagpole.
It's also about second chances late in life and the possibility of love. It's a far warmer story than the opening would have you believe and in McBride's hands that's still a great thing.
Throw in a McGuffin or two, some botched assassinations, some miracle cheese and an army of red ants and you've got a rose coloured recollection of growing up in the Brooklyn projects from an accomplished storyteller.
Jun 17, Samantha rated it it was ok. Lord save us all from the book hype machine. Deacon King Kong was charming and clever, and McBrides chops are a writer are valid, but this book was way, way overhyped.
I had lofty expectations for this after reading loads of glowing reviews and endorsements, but for me it was The humor is notable and the plot is structurally interesting or at least had the potential to be but on the whole its a slow read and not in a good way , too dialogue driven, and largely fails to engage.
I Lord save us all from the book hype machine. I kept waiting for all of the chattiness of the prose to culminate in something meaningful, but the book just never got there.
Jun 12, Truman32 rated it it was amazing. Personally, I find it so much easier to write negative book reviews than reviews for books that I really liked.
Maybe it is just me but comparing poor plots and uninteresting characters to poop, fecal matter, defecation, excrement, dung, crap, or stale farts sprout quicker in my mind than dandelions in a June yard.

Toho's interpretation differed greatly from the original in size and abilities. Among kaiju , King Kong was suggested to be among the most powerful in terms of raw physical force, possessing strength and durability that rivaled that of Godzilla.
As one of the few mammal-based kaiju, Kong's most distinctive feature was his intelligence. He demonstrated the ability to learn and adapt to an opponent's fighting style, identify and exploit weaknesses in an enemy, and utilize his environment to stage ambushes and traps.
In King Kong vs. This version of Kong was given the ability to harvest electricity as a weapon and draw strength from electrical voltage.

As a result, the film became Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah , with no further attempts to use Kong in any way. Both Kong and Skull Island were referenced and made multiple appearances in the film Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
