I bought this book because it was another of Mosley's non-Easy Rawlins books. The first I ever read of his was "The Man in my Basement" and I thought it was outstanding. Subsequent ones, like the Easy Rawlins books, were so different than that and not as appealing to me. So, along comes "The Wave" and I know it will be unique. This might be a little too unique! It is very sci-fi, interesting characters and decent writing but you have to be able to get into the genre. I did to a degree. One of the reviewers calls it "Part utopian fantasy, part nightmare..." That sounds about right.
The Wave started out promisingly, but deteriorated into metaphysical drivel. Mosley has a lucid style of writing and a knack for defining characters, but here he employed his skills to compose a story that was just strange and pointless.
When I read this book I don't think I was prepared for the type of book that it turned out to be. It was nothing like Mr. Mosley's other books that I have read. Sci-fi...a little "Fringe"y.
A fun story, has some sex so it's up to you if you like that or not. Deals with the supernatural/spiritual side of life... or death.
Interesting concepts, sinister government for es. Not bad
