Cinnamon Kiss by Walter Mosley

On today, I returned the audiobook, "Cinnamon Kiss," by Walter Mosley. This book taught me that I probably should have read the Easy Rawlings's books in order. I definitely should have read this one before reading "Blonde Faith." I found myself constantly mentally referring back to what happened in "Blonde Faith," and I was comparing it to "Cinnamon Kiss." Thanks to this book, I can connect Feather's sickness, Black's relationship with Easy, Mouse's demeanor, Easy's relationship with Bonnie, and so much.

One of the things I did not like about this book was the sexual scenes. Somehow hearing them instead of reading them made the scenes appear extra vulgar and too graphic. I can't remember if "Blonde Faith" had sexual scenes. The middle of the book and close to the end was filled with those scenes. Perhaps external influences from my own life played a part in recognizing them and not being pleased. I did not think they actually added to the plot of the book.

The plot was filled with so many twists and turns. I felt like  I was on a roller coaster. I never could predict the direction. Ever time when I thought I had it figured out, turns out I was far away.

Now, the question that needs to be answered: Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would recommend this book. Why? I would recommend it because over all it was really good. The audiobook version to me made the book appear long. I listened to 6 CDs.  I have not seen the actually book, so I cannot say if it is long enough. This audiobook made me aware of Mosley's ability to draw you into the plot. Have you read this book?
