Cannonball Read IV: Fortunate Son by Walter Mosley

By ambern | Book Reviews | November 30, 2012 | Comments ()

The book alternates between Eric and Thomas's lives throughout the years. It is very hard to read through Thomas's sections--they are just so traumatic and wrong on every level. Eric has a great life but is concerned about the effect that he has on those around him. He is afraid that he unintentionally kills those that love him.

This is an excellent and engrossing story, I had a hard time putting it down. But if you don't want to read anything depressing you should stay far away from this novel.
