Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Must Read 2014: The Seven Days
A novel by DC author, poet, playwright, and hip hop musician, R.Kayeen Thomas.
We are very blessed and fortunate enough to have a mother who loves reading. After having read R. Kayeen Thomas’ incredible storytelling she thought we’d appreciate it and see what our impression of it was.
One thing is for certain, after having read Antebellum, I knew I was in store for a great read and Thomas more than delivers in this its prequel. With his intricate storytelling and weaving of characters life experiences, The Seven Days grips the readers psyche and doesn’t let go.
Family, rage, racial tensions, socio-economic classism, the legal system and possession all unfold in a story that weaves from slave times to the present. R.Kayeen Thomas is a master story-teller and “The Seven Days” proves just that. We recommend this book as a must read an addition to any book library.
Our hope is that a daring, talented director and studio produce this as a feature-length film adaptation because the writing and story are that compelling. This could easily become a blockbuster trilogy if done and cast right. Do yourselves a favor folks read this book. Many professors could use this as part of discourse on the Theory of Human Freedom.
