it was ok
bookshelves: scifi-fantasy

This is my first time reading a Walter Mosley book. It was one of those situations where, browsing the library, I decided to try something by an author whose name I recognized but whom I had not read. Perhaps this was not such a good choice.

If I could give this book two and a hlaf stars I would, but I can't quite bring it up to three. It just wasn't that good.

In looking over some of the other reviews here, I would agree with those who say that the first 2/3 of the book were dreadful, but the last portion, when our characters are living rather primally in the mysterious woods, was interesting and attention-getting, even though much less actually happened there. The problem with the earlier portions, where there was more actual action, was that it was very disjointed and seemed to have no focus.

The very end was a cop-out. Cheap and deflating. Someone else here on goodreads called it a 'cold bucket of water' which is very appropriate as well.

I struggled to get through this one and wish now that I hadn't wasted my time.
