NOT A BEST ONE FOR ME
Previous books by Walter Mosley I have enjoyed include others in the Fortlow Series. However, this one dragged. It was never too clear where it was going.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This story may appeal to persons who are seeking an outlet for their own unaccomplished dreams, seeking to piggyback on Fortlow's. My recreational reading, while it may allow for some deep thought, also craves a somewhat linear storyline (not meaning there can't be some looking backwards) even though those lines can come from different directions. A challenge to figure out what is happening and where it's all leading, whether I'm right or wrong, holds my unforced attention. The end violence seems to come out of nowhere despite the hints of official interference and some things, like the civil suit, are unresolved. It just doesn't come together.
I was also somewhat taken aback by a number of editing errors which I've never noticed before (perhaps because I was too busy reading go be distracted by such errors).
I shall continue to read those of Mosely's works which I think will appeal to me because of the great satisfaction received from previous experiences with his books.
