"Mosley's sense of time and place are near-perfect, as usual and M.E. Willis' first-person narration nicely conveys our streetwise and world-weary hero. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
This is a great collection of EZ short stories by Walter Mosley. They come between A Little Yellow Dog and Little Scarlet, and fill in a lot of the gaps between those two novels. Really enjoyable. ME Willis is a delight. Characters like Mama Joe, bring added depth. Gone Fishing was written before these stories, and there's references to what happened.
If you want a novel, then you won't be satisfied with short stories, but I really enjoyed seeing how Mosley works with the short story form and also the way the stories link together.
The guy who read the story was way too jivy for my taste. He was very over-the-top and overly exaggerated accents and dialects to the point of ridiculousness.
I didn't realize until 1/2 way through that this was a collection of shorts. This made the first few hours very irritating because of the repetitiveness, however once I realize what was going on it was fine. I was hoping all of the shorts connected somehow in the end, but no luck there. Overall, the story was great. To me it was a glimpse into Easy's life between the 5 year gaps of the earlier books.
The story line did but the narrator did not give the same effect as Michael Boatman.
I would have kept Michael Boatman for the Easy Rawlins stories
Because of the story line, yes
Once again Walter Mosley's work is phenomenal. I had the greatest time listenin to Six Easy Pieces and just love the performance by the storyteller. This is a must "listen"!
Enjoy Easy Rawlins...the best!
Always...Mosley has a knack for keeping me interested even as I'm drifting off to sleep...
Easy Rawlins...no brainer
