review 1: I was disappointed in this book, although she was a woman who made her living doing adult entertaiment movies. I expected from the title and preview of the book that there would be a lot of reference to this sordid side of life but I felt that it was just to much and as a by the...

review 1: I won't pretend that I could look at any enry in this series objectivley with everything Mosley as a talent and Easy Rawlins as a character have meant to my personal ambiions as a writer. My take on books in the Rawlins series tend to fall on the "disappoined" or amazed side of t...

review 1: Missed the first two books in this series about Leonid McGill, but Mosley's writing gives you enough back-story to figure out how we got where we are. Plenty of good mystery/crime/detective writes out there; Mosley's take is different than most, at least in this series. HIs dar...
The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey (2010)
language
English
4.03 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Walter Mosley is a new writer (to me). I've now read several of his books, but this one deserves a review. The title character is 91 years old, and is suffering early-onset dementia. He knows there is something he should do but he can't remember what it is. But then he gets help ...

review 1: This novel continues to follow the reformed Leonid McGill in his constant challenge to earn a living, take care of his family, eke out some joy for himself, while walking a fine line between ethics and corruption. Diversity is elemental with the mix of cultures, ethnicities and l...

review 1: Good detective novel, with the necessary element of all great detective novels, information is withheld till the very end so that there is no way you can guess who the bad guy is. However, this novel is not about catching the bad guy, it is about watching the protagonist Leonid...

review 1: As always, Walter Mosley's writing is excellent. However, I thought the main story lacked substance. There were too many characters to keep track of, and the handful of plots and subplots weren't as interesting as earlier Walter Mosley novels. I preferred the story with Leonid an...

review 1: I really like short stories and I really love these Walter Mosley two for one specials. The first one I read "On The Head Of A Pin" was my favorite of the two stories. I liked the science fiction element of it. Some of it was a bit too grody, but on the whole it was okay. Both st...
Odyssey (2013)

review 1: How often do we see our life reflected in a character? How much of our own life do we ever see in another mans story? I think that is what I respect most about Walter Mosley's stories, their capture and portrayal of real life conflicts and struggles. Especially the internal ones....
