The 21st Century Chronicles of Thugg the Barbarian King by Brent Carpenter



Thugg becomes a global celebrity-a cross between Dr. Martin Luther King and Tupac Shakur. As he becomes increasingly cognizant of the dire plight of the black race, he invokes his royal roots and uses his status to speak out for revolution-a call that has the potential to dramatically alter race relations across the planet, for better or worse, forever. The epic saga plays out against the backdrop of the convoluted love triangle that erupts between Thugg, Dr. Haynes and Dr. Phillips, whose homosexuality is a closely guarded secret.

The story of Thugg begins atop Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, where his perfectly preserved frozen body is discovered after 12,000 years in the ice. The ancient African is transported to the prestigious Yancey University in Massachusetts for study, where the head of the Bio-engineering department announces that it is possible to restore him to life utilizing the emerging new science of microrobotics called nanotechnology. Setting this mind-boggling enterprise into motion, it is quickly realized by the university staff that the Kilimanjaroan is unprepared to cope with the shocking circumstances of his resurrection and the realities he faces in 21st Century. Thugg is deeply distrustful of white people, having never seen one in his original lifetime, and thus is paired with the head of YU's Psychology Department, a brilliant African American named Dr. Quantez Phillips, and his best friend and colleague, Dr. Ruthenia Haynes, head of the Language Department. Together they set out to prove that they can teach this "caveman" to become a thinking and productive member of modern-day society. They succeed beyond their wildest imaginations. As Thugg's language skills become increasingly sophisticated, he reveals that he was born a barbarian and ruled as the king of a vast, now extinct African empire. His saga intrigues and inspires all of humanity, especially African Americans, who hold him up as proof that blacks can achieve any goal they set their minds upon. Thugg becomes a global celebrity-a cross between Dr. Martin Luther King and Tupac Shakur. As he becomes increasingly cognizant of the dire plight of the black race, he invokes his royal roots and uses his status to speak out for revolution-a call that has the potential to dramatically alter race relations across the planet, for better or worse, forever.

I simply loved this outstanding original novel!!! The world BRENT DORIAN CARPENTER has created is one of those vivid places one visits for a while and when it's tragically over you feel a horrid sense of dread and loss that consumes you as the last pages forever leave your fingertips. Now that my experience is no more I find myself actually missing some of its people and the fascinating synergy they shared on their wondrous journey in this extremely vibrant literary account. This book has so much to say about so many different themes and I dug that. Ultimately I thought it was about love on so many levels - sometimes selfish and then sometimes unconditional. I also liked how the author stressed LGBT equality. That all people need to be able to live and love freely without violence and have legal justice.

THE 21st CENTURY CHRONICLES OF THUGG THE BARBIAN KING is a large luscious work that thrills, educates, and completely entertains from beginning to end. In addition to the enthralling story-line, those who are not of African American decent will get an insiders perspective through the main characters lives of what its like to be African in a predominantly White European Society. We have the Gay/Bi-Sexual nature of most of the main characters mixed in with the African heritage, along with 500 years of psychic slavery/repression branded onto their lives/identity. These vocal educated individuals all have something to say compiled with all these delicious variables make this an amazing account to witness. History lessons abound yet are relative to the narrative and are brought up organically in the lives, experiences, and dealings with the discovery our protagonist Thugg.

Thugg, an ancient African King some 12,000 years old is found frozen in perfect condition on the slope of Mount Kilemanjaro Africa by hikers. With cutting age technology he is resurrected and rehabilitated to the 21st Century at a distinctive Mass. University. His two main doctors, a Dr. Quantez Phillips, and a Dr. Ruth Haynes both both end up falling madly in love with the magnificent Barbarian King forming a rather complicated gay, bi, straight, love triangle. The doctors have been best friends for 20+ years since their early college days and its needless to say its starting to strain their much cherished relationship. Thugg may have come from another time, place, and culture (but he is no dummy!) and learns to adapt to his bizarre new 21st Century world and its customs rather quickly - he even learns English. Drama, violence, laughter, friendship, and romance rein throughout the book and much befalls our beloved cast of characters.

I found this book, its characters, and its many messages and themes superbly orchestrated. There is such a wondrous vibrancy to MR. CARPENTER'S imagination and the way he fleshes out the humanity in the souls he gives birth to. This well thought out complex tale weaves heartbreak, betrayal, revelation, love, and a triumph of spirit/friendship through it all. The Author is also an out gay man, is openly HIV+ as well as has a Bi-Polar condition - I love how he has embraced and celebrated these elements of himself (YOU GO BRENT)!!! This novel is saturated with joyous male African American homosexual/sensual expressionism that is so brilliantly uniquely the Authors. I found my experience with Thugg and the Gang completely engrossing, and am enchanted by MR. CARPENTER'S writing/voice and plan to continue reading more of his work (can you say BALD AMBITION anyone?). Do yourself a literary favor read THE 21st CENTURY CHRONICLES OF THUGG THE BARBARIAB KING, as I can't recommend it enough!!!

This novel combines African prehistory to present-day black characters from the USA. Interestingly, the main character hails from Tanzania in East Africa like the works from the early works by black authors, where a connection is made with East Africa rather than West Africa. For example, see Pauline Hopkins' One Blood. This work, though, in intriguing as it taps into the medicine, nature science, and philosophy. It is great to see the main characters as professional intellectuals. In addition, sexuality is presented as a continuum rather than in clearly separated categories, and is, therefore, informing. Also, the author relates the sexual ambiguities and experimentation to prehistorical times, and even in Africa, where many want to believe that "homosexuality and bisexuality" never existed until the coming of Europeans. Furthermore, the author comments on the decline in black pride, unity, self image, etc. since the Modern Civil Rights Movement, and an African from the remote past has to rejuvenate a powerful spirit among blacks. Of course, once the ambiguous sexual nature of the man is revealed, attitudes change, which comments on the hypocrisy and short sightedness of people, who see images more than the message. The work also includes the machinations and ploys of competing powers, based on greed, and those, who care more about humanity. In the midst of all these storylines are two love stories. The book is long, but it reads evenly.
