    STRANGE - Not Easy Rawlins

    What people won't do for money! The theme of this book was very strange but the writing was superb as you would come to expect from Walter Mosley. It wasn't a hard read but I tended to drift away and then have to come back. Not my favorite for sure.

    Well-written, just not overly entertaining

    I read this book voraciously in just a few hours. For some reason I was unable to put it down. Although it kept me intrigued, I am unable to put my finger on the source of the intrigue. The ending lacked what I had expected to be a strong twist or surprise. It felt empty as though someone removed the last 50 pages that were intended to complete the book.

    Satisfied, but that's it.

    This was the first book I have read by Mosley so I am not familiar with his other books or how he writes. I can say this is NOT what I expected. Saying this it's hard to explain what I had trouble with. I suppose I assumed a more mysterious or evil reasoning for the cage. I just waited for there to be more. There wasn't. I don't think this was a bad book, for the most part I enjoyed it. I just had some other ideas about it and it dissappointed me.
