5.0 out of 5 stars If you've never been to JA, this is the next best thing, 2 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Rude Boy: Once Upon a Time in Jamaica (Paperback)
Ask me if I've ever been to Jamaica and after reading this book I would absentmindedly say 'Yes' as 'Rude Boy' has sunk into my brain as experience rather than imagination. Salewicz cuts between piracy and politics, music and machete wielding mad men, religion and dancehall queens. He looks at the complexities of Jamaican culture (often through a haze of smoke)with a mixture of respect, admiration and complete bafflement. Most importantly he loves every moment of it, and so will you. Whether you buy the book for the bad boy tales, rasta reasonings, grinding gals, or a serious musical and cultural history 261 pages is just not long enough!

I very much enjoyed the book although it was not what I expected.It is a general study on a personal view.I was looking more for a story of Rude-boy culture but got a whole lot more.
Very readable 10/10
