Fiction: Three Black Boys: Tomorrow After Supper
by Zangba Thomson
Fiction:Three Black Boys: Tomorrow After Supper Kindle Edition...Also Available In Paperback.
Three Black Boys: Tomorrow After Supper is an urban-fiction novel by Zangba Thomson that is intense as it is pointed and dark. This vivid, savvy, and altogether street-smart debut marks a bold new voice in literary fiction.
The setting is South-side Jamaica, a neighborhood in Queens, New York, and home to Babita Harris, an Indian immigrant plagued with the deadly black fever disease. With a couple of months to live, her only hope of survival is a costly liver transplant. But with no health insurance, the chance of a surgery is slim. What she needs is a quarter of a million dollars in cash.
Barnes, her only son, along with his two friends, Demus and Baker, spring into dangerous action to get the money. Though their road is paved with good intentions, the brothers in arms will be in for more than a few surprises and a whole lot of heat.

"Survival of the fittest is the name of the game. The losers are either dead, in jail, or stung out on drug. The winners end up fulfilling their dreams. It doesn't matter which side you represent, for better or worse - everyone needs an exit strategy out of the ghetto. The victims are always the law abiding citizens, and without them- all hope is lost."
I want you guys to know that I can rate a book very poorly and I won't care at ALL about what the author would say. But, this was a case in which I REALLY liked/loved this book.
This book is about a boy named Barnes Harris (son of Babita Harris, who is infected with Black Fever) who along with his two friends, Demus and Baker (all three comprise the THREE BLACK BOYS , are on a mission to arrange for a quarter of a million Dollars, illegaly, for the liver transplant of his mother, since they cannot afford it.
Part 1 and Part 2The plot goes through: 1) Action - since it is street life, and story of gangsters. It occurs only when needed, not very frequently and amazingly! 2) Suspense - There are moments when you are into the book and you cannot put it down, because it contains such unpredictable and twisted scenes... 3) Writing Skills - There are scenes and chapter, where you just stop and think that, what? Beautifully written. 4) Parallelism - First few chapters are based on different lives. But, they join together after a while and run on the track. Each character has his/her own story to tell!
The book is written in two parts, the first part is the mission, and the second part is (er.... uh.... LET IT BE A SUSPENSE FOR YOU!) SUPERB FANTASY! (Minute scenes are implausible, but won't be too far-fetched) I bet that you wouldn't have thought that the story would end that way. When I was halfway through, (the first part was about to end) I thought that THIS is the end, and I was satisfied. But, the second part came unexpected! AMAZING!
YAYYYYYYY! I got it signed!
