Product Description

Product Description

A #1 Kindle Best Seller in Travel & Holiday > Countries & Regions > Caribbean > Jamaica

If you are looking for a great hotel and quirky restaurant options, do not buy this book. It has almost no practical information about Jamaica, but it does have a handy English-Jamaican dictionary. There’s also a number of handy ‘facts of your fingertips’, proverbs aplenty, maps and pictures and some geographical data. Best of all are the Jamaican proverbs, their meanings and English equivalents

Written by “King Paul” Johnson, a native who’s love and knowledge of his island jumps out of the pages, ready to teach any visitor or simply the curious the secret wisdom, culture and joie de vivre of the Carribean people. Expect to finish reading Seen: The Jamaican Socio-Cultural Bible Handbook with an increased understanding of the island, people and an insatiable desire to visit it first hand. Maybe there’s also just a little practical stuff after all.


Jamaican proverbs, their meanings and English equivalents:
Fiah de a Muus-Muus tail, him tink a cool breeze.

Translation: A fire is blazing under the tail of a mouse, but he mistakes it for a cool breeze.

Interpretation: Trouble is pending in someone’s life according to his/her lifestyle, yet that person, as if totally unaware of the pending danger, continues living in like manner.

What I like most about this book are the sayings and their interpretations. The words and translations were helpful and refreshing.

THE MOST COMMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON JAMAICAN PATOIS I HAVE READ. IT IS A DEFINITE MUST FOR ANYONE GOING TO JAMAICA AND SOCIALIZING WITH THEIR PEOPLE INSTEAD OF JUST BEING A RESORT VACATIONER.
