Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric Coleman | 2/15/2014

    " Always Walter Mosley's science fiction novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colin | 2/6/2014

    " This book was a bit weird--i didn't quite buy the omniscient amoeba parasitical god thing, or the mad-plastic-surgeon bit. And i thought it was pretty sexist too-the female characters were one-dimensional sex objects. I definitely liked Futureland and Blue Light a lot better. I think I only liked this because the other sci-fi book I'm reading right now is *really* badly written. Meh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oliver Barratt | 2/3/2014

    " A good little book. I thought it might be some sort of paranormal type thing at first, but I gave it a little time, and it paid off. Very cool sci- fi book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Herring | 12/18/2013

    " My boyfriend told me to read this and I won't break up with him or anything because it was actually pretty interesting. I have only read a few books where the main character is black, so it was new for me. I liked the concept, however I'm still not really sure what exactly happened. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 11/16/2013

    " Walter Mosley is a master storyteller. This book is part fiction/Sci-Fi. Very different from anything I have ever read before, but very good. I look forward to reading more of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaneka | 10/13/2013

    " At first I did not like the beginning of the book and was forced to read it because I had nothing else on hand to read. But the story is fabulous!!! I love the mix of supernatural in this novel, it's quite a change from Mosley's normal works!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 9/27/2013

    " This man can write some super sci fi! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natasha | 9/10/2013

    " Creepy and strange...but pretty awesome. It's considered science fiction, and it is definitely out there...but if you are looking for something to take you out of your normal reading routine, try this one for a different type of journey. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Yelverton | 8/1/2013

    " This book was so bad, that it is hands down the closest that I have ever come to not finishing a book that I started. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jon | 6/18/2013

    " Good start mixing mystery crime and then sci fi. But but ends up like rather silly 50s b movie. Nice style but sorry Walter you are not a good sci fi writer "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Poeticleah | 11/22/2012

    " Now this book was extremely interesting! The concept was very futurist and totally unexpected from this author because I've been reading/listening to the audio CDs his mysteries. I really enjoyed it though, the oneness, the eery quality. Worth checking out! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diana Clark | 7/20/2012

    " This was not my favorite audio book. Perhaps the characterization was what was irritating. I suppose the story was okay, but I listened just to see what happened at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 7/12/2012

    " This one was better than Mosley's other sci-fi novel "Blue Light." It wasn't one of my favorite Sci Fi reads, but it went some interesting places and kept me turning pages. The characters were deep and colorful. This time Mosley has proved that he can tackle any genre with his captivating prose. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 10/4/2011

    " While I enjoyed the writing, I can't say I found the plot or the characters compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keets | 7/14/2011

    " Intriguing read. Moved quickly and kept me engaged. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 M Aaglan | 6/26/2011

    " Just AWFUL! I wish there was a 'Zero Stars' option, but since there is not: one star for the presence of words on the page. Simplistic writing, no character development and I could have used heavy narcotics after being beaten over the head with the religious metaphor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 5/1/2011

    " What a fascinating SF book. Mosley has created one of the most intriguing ideas of what an alien being could be. I picked up this audiobook after listening to Mosley's Foutunate Son. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerra | 4/28/2011

    " This book was amazing. A friend recommended it to me and I loved it. It is a fantasy story mixed with science and love. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good science filled thriller.

    Enjoy and hope you like it as much as I did! "

    " listened to it;it went pretty quick and held my interest. A little sci/fi "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Poeticleah | 12/10/2009

    " A phone call from someone who sounds like a long dead father sets off a bizarre and deadly chain of events. This is the second time I read this book on my romp through Walter Mosley's books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee | 5/10/2009

    " When a strange wave brings back the dead, the gvt goes crazy.
    Awesome book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ero | 2/9/2009

    " Very wierd book, cautiously skirting/careening wildly around the edges of a lot of sci-fi cliches and getting at something a little uncomfortable and possibly profound, and definitely unusual, while doing so. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 2/3/2009

    " Walter Mosley is a master storyteller. This book is part fiction/Sci-Fi. Very different from anything I have ever read before, but very good. I look forward to reading more of his books. "

    " i guess i'm just hooked on easy rawlins and not the sci fi and fantasy stuff.
    like the style of writing but he plot was not my "cup of tea". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trikkessa | 10/16/2008

    " Very weird, even for me. "
