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.

I found myself constantly bouncing between 2 stars, one minute, and 4 stars the next. 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 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 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.

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.
For example, check out this beauty: This week Patterson dropped his most recent poor excuse for a mystery on us like my Schnauzer, Heinrich, dropped several particularly crumbly Personally, I find it so much easier to write negative book reviews than reviews for books that I really liked.
Why I dozed off several times just writing that dog. This thing is fantastic. They finally followed through almost 30 years later, with a three-hour film directed by Peter Jackson.
Jackson opted to make Kong a gigantic silverback gorilla without any anthropomorphic features. This Kong looked and behaved more like a real gorilla: he had a large herbivore's belly, walked on his knuckles without any upright posture, and even beat his chest with his palms as opposed to clenched fists.
In order to ground his Kong in realism, Jackson and the Weta Digital crew gave a name to his fictitious species Megaprimatus kong and suggested it to have evolved from the Gigantopithecus.
Kong was the last of his kind. He was portrayed in the film as being quite old, with graying fur and battle-worn with scars, wounds, and a crooked jaw from his many fights against rival creatures.
He is the dominant being on the island, the king of his world. But, like his film predecessors, he possesses considerable intelligence and great physical strength; he also appears far more nimble and agile.
This Kong was scaled to a consistent height of 25 feet 7. We assumed that Kong is the last surviving member of his species. He's the last of the huge gorillas that live on Skull Island He's a very lonely creature, absolutely solitary.
It must be one of the loneliest existences you could ever possibly imagine. Every day, he has to battle for his survival against very formidable dinosaurs on the island, and it's not easy for him.
He's carrying the scars of many former encounters with dinosaurs. And he has never felt a single bit of empathy for another living creature in his long life; it has been a brutal life that he's lived.
In the film Kong: Skull Island , Kong is scaled to be feet He also stated that the original look was the inspiration for the design, saying:.
This is something that is its own species. That version is very much a scaled-up silverback gorilla, and ours is something that is slightly more exaggerated.
A big mandate for us was, How do we make this feel like a classic movie monster? Co-producer Mary Parent also stated that Kong is still young and not fully grown as she explains, "Kong is an adolescent when we meet him in the film; he's still growing into his role as alpha".
While one of the most famous movie icons in history, King Kong's intellectual property status has been questioned since his creation, featuring in numerous allegations and court battles.
The rights to the character have always been split up with no single exclusive rights holder. Different parties have also contested that various aspects are public domain material and therefore ineligible for copyright status.
When Merian C. Cooper created King Kong, he assumed that he owned the character, which he had conceived in , outright. Cooper maintained that he had only licensed the character to RKO for the initial film and sequel, but had otherwise owned his own creation.
In , Cooper began to feel something was amiss when he was trying to get a Tarzan vs. King Kong project off the ground for Pioneer Pictures where he had assumed management of the company.
After David O. Selznick suggested the project to Cooper, the flurry of legal activity over using the Kong character that followed—Pioneer had become a completely independent company by this time and access to properties that RKO felt were theirs was no longer automatic—gave Cooper pause as he came to realize that he might not have full control over this product of his own imagination after all.
Cooper had assumed his rights were unassailable and was bitterly opposed to the project. In he filed a lawsuit to enjoin distribution of the movie against John Beck, as well as Toho and Universal the film's U.
Cooper's executive assistant, Charles B. FitzSimons, stated that these companies should be negotiating through him and Cooper for such licensed products and not RKO.
In a letter to Robert Bendick, Cooper stated:. My hassle is about King Kong. I created the character long before I came to RKO and have always believed I retained subsequent picture rights and other rights.
Cooper and his legal team offered up various documents to bolster the case that Cooper owned King Kong and had only licensed the character to RKO for two films, rather than selling him outright.
Many people vouched for Cooper's claims, including David O. Selznick, who had written a letter to Mr. Without these letters, it seemed Cooper's rights were relegated to the Lovelace novelization that he had copyrighted he was able to make a deal for a Bantam Books paperback reprint and a Gold Key comic adaptation of the novel, but that was all that he could do.
Cooper's lawyer had received a letter from John Beck's lawyer, Gordon E. Youngman, that stated:. For the sake of the record, I wish to state that I am not in negotiation with you or Mr.
Cooper or anyone else to define Mr. Cooper's rights in respect of King Kong. His rights are well defined, and they are non-existent, except for certain limited publication rights.
It seems my hassle over King Kong is destined to be a protracted one. They'd make me sorry I ever invented the beast, if I weren't so fond of him!
Makes me feel like Macbeth : "Bloody instructions which being taught return to plague the inventor. The rights over the character did not flare up again until , when Universal Studios and Dino De Laurentiis were fighting over who would be able to do a King Kong remake for release the following year.
During the legal battles that followed, which eventually included RKO countersuing Universal, as well as De Laurentiis filing a lawsuit claiming interference, Colonel Richard Cooper Merian's son and now head of the Cooper estate jumped into the fray.
During the battles, Universal discovered that the copyright of the Lovelace novelization had expired without renewal, thus making the King Kong story a public domain one.
Universal argued that they should be able to make a movie based on the novel without infringing on anyone's copyright because the characters in the story were in the public domain within the context of the public domain story.
In a four-day bench trial in Los Angeles, Judge Manuel Real made the final decision and gave his verdict on November 24, , affirming that the King Kong novelization and serialization were indeed in the public domain, and Universal could make its movie as long as it did not infringe on original elements in the RKO film,  which had not passed into the public domain  Universal postponed their plans to film a King Kong movie, called The Legend of King Kong , for at least 18 months, after cutting a deal with Dino De Laurentiis that included a percentage of box office profits from his remake.
However, on December 6, , Judge Real made a subsequent ruling, which held that all the rights in the name, character, and story of King Kong outside of the original film and its sequel belonged to Merian C.
Cooper's estate. This ruling, which became known as the "Cooper judgment", expressly stated that it would not change the previous ruling that publishing rights of the novel and serialization were in the public domain.
It was a huge victory that affirmed the position Merian C. Cooper had maintained for years. In Judge Real dismissed the claims that were brought forth by RKO and Universal four years earlier and reinstated the Cooper judgement.
In Universal filed a lawsuit against Nintendo , which had created an impish ape character called Donkey Kong in and was reaping huge profits over the video game machines.
Universal claimed that Nintendo was infringing on its copyright because Donkey Kong was a blatant rip-off of King Kong. The courts ruled that trademark was not among the rights Cooper had sold to Universal, indicating that "Cooper plainly did not obtain any trademark rights in his judgment against RKO, since the California district court specifically found that King Kong had no secondary meaning.
First, Universal knew that it did not have trademark rights to King Kong, yet it proceeded to broadly assert such rights anyway.
This amounted to a wanton and reckless disregard of Nintendo's rights. Second, Universal did not stop after it asserted its rights to Nintendo. It embarked on a deliberate, systematic campaign to coerce all of Nintendo's third party licensees to either stop marketing Donkey Kong products or pay Universal royalties.
Finally, Universal's conduct amounted to an abuse of judicial process, and in that sense caused a longer harm to the public as a whole.
Depending on the commercial results, Universal alternatively argued to the courts, first, that King Kong was a part of the public domain, and then second, that King Kong was not part of the public domain, and that Universal possessed exclusive trademark rights in it.
Universal's assertions in court were based not on any good faith belief in their truth, but on the mistaken belief that it could use the courts to turn a profit.
Because Universal misrepresented their degree of ownership of King Kong claiming they had exclusive trademark rights when they knew that they did not and tried to have it both ways in court regarding the "public domain" claims, the courts ruled that Universal acted in bad faith see Universal City Studios, Inc.
Nintendo Co. They were ordered to pay fines and all of Nintendo's legal costs from the lawsuit. That, along with the fact that the courts ruled that there was simply no likelihood of people confusing Donkey Kong with King Kong,  caused Universal to lose the case and the subsequent appeal.
Since the court case, Universal still retains the majority of the character rights. In they opened a King Kong ride called King Kong Encounter at their Universal Studios Tour theme park in Hollywood which was destroyed in by a backlot fire , and followed it up with the Kongfrontation ride at their Orlando park in which was closed down in due to maintenance issues.
They also finally made a King Kong film of their own, King Kong As noted above, Richard Cooper, through the Merian C.
Cooper Estate, retained publishing rights for the content that Judge Real had ruled on December 6, , belonged to Richard Cooper.
In , they licensed a six-issue comic book adaptation of the novelization of the film to Monster Comics , and commissioned an illustrated novel in called Anthony Browne's King Kong.
In , they became involved with a musical stage play based on the story, called King Kong: The Eighth Wonder of the World which premiered in June in Australia   and then on Broadway in November Studios ,  an expanded rewrite of the original Lovelace novelization, Merian C.
Cooper's King Kong, the original novelization's publishing rights are still in the public domain , and various crossovers with other franchises such as Doc Savage , Tarzan  and Planet of the Apes.
RKO whose rights consisted of only the original film and its sequel signed over the North American, Latin American and Australian distribution rights to its film library to Ted Turner in a period spanning to via his company Turner Entertainment.
In , Warner Bros. Family Entertainment released the direct-to-video animated musical film The Mighty Kong , which re-tells the plot of the original film.
Kong , after Legendary Pictures brought the projects from Universal to their company to build up the MonsterVerse.
DDL whose rights were limited to only their remake did a sequel in called King Kong Lives but they still needed Universal's permission to do so.
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. This is the best adaptation to date of King Kong.
It's a lengthy and rewarding piece. The over three hour run time might seem standoffish at first but you won't regret investing the time in watching this movie.
The star of the film, Kong, is wonderfully anthropomorphic and you can readily identify with his nonverbal communication thanks to the work of Andy Serkis.
