Praise for DEACON KING KONG: “Deacon King Kong is deeply felt, beautifully written and profoundly humane; McBride’s ability to inhabit his characters’ foibled, all-too-human interiority helps transform a fine book into a great one. He has written beautifully before, in his beloved memoir, The Color of Water, and, with terrifying irreverence, in his National Book Award . Kong: Skull Island is without a doubt a great novelization. The films story easily lends itself to book form being essentially a jungle adventure. The writing of the book plus the genre of monsters, bit of techno fiction, and adventure reminds one of Jurassic Park or Congo which can be said of the film as well.4/5(26). Deacon King Kong by James McBride is a Random House publication. Bold, Brilliant and Captivating! Set in Brooklyn, the story starts off with a literal bang when an elderly church deacon, known as Sportcoat, shoots Deems Clemens, a drug dealer, in front of the Cause houses housing project, with no shortage of witnesses/5. King Kong walks slowly away from the shadows of the jungles and snatches Ann away from the ropes. Ann is then taken away from the sacrifice ceremony to Kong's lair where she would probably be killed. This book King Kong is about a group of people and filmmakers traveling to an infamous place called skull island/5(15).
Kat Kong was so funny! I loved this book, and was impressed with how relatively true to King Kong it was (with large cat in place of large ape, and tiny mice in place of tiny people, of course). My niece and nephew aren't familiar with King Kong, so Kat Kong was an entirely new experience for them, and they enjoyed the tale tremendously/5. “Deacon King Kong,” the new book from author and musician James McBride, is a hilarious, pitch-perfect comedy set in the Brooklyn projects of the late s. Sportcoat is the vexatious heart of James McBride’s cracking new novel, “Deacon King Kong.” With his porkpie hat and garish jackets, Sportcoat is a beloved fixture of the Causeway Houses. King Kong is captured on a remote island and taken to New York, where he escapes and climbs the Empire State Building. Miss Ann Darrow, the beautiful young lady that Kong captures, bears more than a passing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe, and the book perfectly captures the time period. Glorious illustrations, an exciting storyline and fun to read/5(19).
