Would you listen to And Sometimes I Wonder About You again? Why?
Probably not but I will certainly look forward to the next Leonid McGill.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did more or less with few breaks
Any additional comments?
Leonid M'Gill ain't Easy Rawlings/Hush ain't Mouse
Sometimes when we were kids and got presents that were not quite the right present, we might have felt annoyed, cranky, or riotous.. For a few tracks I felt mopish because I wanted Easy and Mouse and cars and Southern California. However my disappointment lasted only a few chapters. The story started simmering and then boiling for me quite quickly when a variety of seemingly unconnected characters came together and I thought okay I'll hang around for the ending. I was not disappointed. The character of Hush was well drawn. Some of the supporting acts esp Hiram Stent were memorable for the right reasons. The depressed wife, the receptionist, the leggy mistresses did border on the unbelievable and were a bit tedious. The prodigal father was an interesting idea
Walter Mosley is one of the best writers of the detective genre. Some great dialogue, and if nothing else in a short passage nails the importance of fiction.
Mosley is up to his usual excellent standards in this novel with the ever more world weary ex boxer working another set of cases.
The reader however was a revelation, excellent throughout at nailing the tone and immersing you in the story. I will certainly be looking to see what else Prentice has done.
Another great read from Walter Mosley. Leonid McGill is as smooth as ever in his roles as father, lover, agent and killer. Mr Mosley is a fabulous author and story teller. A small point that I miss in the Leonid McGill series as compared to Easy Rawlins is the historical perspectives Mr Mosley regularly included.
