BLUE LIGHT,THUG•A•LICIOUS,WHAT THEY WANT....

Unlike his many other great books that WalterMosley has created "Blue Light" is totally different from his other books.For me it was hard getting into it maybe because I had this preconceive notion that it would be like his other books.The jumping around from character to character made it hard to follow the flow of the writing in which it cause me to put the book a side. That's a first considering I  thought all his books were about the same.That's what I get for thinking but I do get that all his books are  the same meaning  in mystery not plot.This does has mystery through out the book, but reading it gives off a  mystical feel to it sorta speak.Read for your self ,and form your own opinion about this book yours just might be different from mines.


Here is a little snippet from the synopsis of the book:  Blue Light is a story of these people and their transformation.Narrated by Chance a biracial man whose entire life has  been a stuggle for self-definition,the novel traces the desperate conflict of the"blues" with one of their own, a man who -struck by the light at the moment expired-has become the living embodiiment of death.

About the Author: Walter Mosley is the author of the bestselling Easy Rawlins seris of mysteries, the novel RL's dream,and the story collection Always Outnumbered,for which he receive the Anisfield-Wolf book award.He was born in Los angeles, and lives in New York.

I read this book called Thug•A•Licious some time  back,and I became an instant fan of the author Noire writngs.She is amongest the top authors who can write a novel that  will have you reading it over just for pure pleasure of it .Thug is the book I am talking about when I say OMG!! I mean it this book will have you  in a erotic state of mind dip in with some drama,but it will make you mad ,and cry also.Ok! back to the book Andre thug•a•licious  Williams grew up on the mean streets of harlem with the dreams of  being drafted into the NBA,and also to have a rap career but his family situation plays a big role in his life as well as many of his conquest that he runs into or should I say run up in.Lol let  me stop before I get to deep in this urban erotic tale.I don't want to give to much away because when you read it.You are going to  love the read,andbecome an instant fan of her books.



Here is a snippet from the synopsis of the book:Andre,and his cousins Carl, aka Pimp-A-Licious, and Todd, aka Smooth-A-Licious, were nicknamed by their Puerto Rican grandmother and raised by his unpredictable mother. Performing as a rap trio, they became known and revered as the Licious Lovers. After living in the streets and participating in illegal activities, he escapes his unstable lifestyle by attending Syracuse University on a basketball scholarship.

OK! my next book is What They Want should be self explanatory,Duh! I'm just kidding.But Omar Tyree has written another great book that should be on your to read list.If not I don't know why .Because the character Terrance Mitchell  will have you cussing  through out the book.Terrance is a model who uses his good looks to get what he wants,and  all the women he comes into contact will submit to  his ever need.He isn't looking to settle down,and have a white pick fence family life.He wants to enjoy what  he does best.But, there might be some one who will change his flamboyant life style.I can read this book over again like  it's my first time reading it.








Here is a snippet from the synopsis of the book: Terrance  Mitchell had no plans at all to settle down .For what?Being single was freedom,where relationships were binding.Nor  did he have plans for a family with snotty -nose kids running around,cramping his style,and eating free.To hell with that.

About the Author: Omar Tyree is a New York Times bestselling author,and the winner of the 2001 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary work-fiction.
