|The Dead Yard is the story of modern Jamaica. The once prosperous island of sugar is now corrupt and filled with violence, drugs, and poverty. Ian Thomson does a great job of providing facts and raw, vivid images of this Caribbean Island in the Western World, which is now in hopeless despair. Thomson's story definitely gives off a negative perspective of Jamaica. If you would like to travel to Jamaica, after reading this book, you'll probably change your mind. Even though this book is filled with the horrifying truth of Jamaica today, I recommend reading it to learn about what the island beholds.
