    Description

    From award-winning author Walter Mosley comes the third work featuring hardened ex-con turned street philosopher Socrates Fortlow. Organizing other troubled individuals, Socrates starts the Thursday Night Thinkers' Meeting, in which members discuss "the world and what would be the right thing to do."

    Commentaires

    "In the face of gangs, drugs, poverty and racism, Mosley poses the deceptively simple question - What can I do? - and provides a powerful and moving answer." ( Publishers Weekly)

    Saving the best for last

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Right Mistake to be better than the print version?

    I've never seen the print version, but, in general, I prefer audiobooks if they have the right narrator. In this case, with basso profundo narrator Ezra Knight, I cannot imagine a better, truer voice to bring Socrates Fortlow—and Walter Mosley's art—to life.

    Any additional comments?

    The three Socrates Fortlow novels are not always easy to listen to. Walter Mosley's power of description remains brilliant, and his characters absorbing, but these books are much bleaker than, say, his Easy Rawlins novels. Still, Socrates Fortlow's is a voice well worth listening to, and his story pays off magnificently in this third book, The Right Mistake. Like Socrates' Thursday night gatherings of thinkers from all walks of life, this book can make you reconsider all your comfortably known truths, and change your life for the better. You will come to love the characters surrounding Socrates, and you will hold your breath, hoping he will realize that he has grown from a killer into a leader. This novel of love and wisdom will fill your heart.

    Walter Mosley doesn't disappoint.

    While this is not his best work Walter Mosley delivers a great story to the life of the intriguing Socrates Fortlow. The Right Mistake is a good read that keeps you engaged throughout each chapter in the book.

    I like the story of...

    Socrates Fortlow. I skipped the second book by accident. This story kept me engaged. I was always on the edge of my seat wonder what was going to happen next.

    Mosley presents us with multiple realities of life and society through the trials and tribulations of Socrates

    Socrates, from the beginning wraps your attention to the fast moving events of his life, never holding back his past as a two time murder and rapist while ingratiating you with his charm. The charm coming forth from his forthright nature and determination to make amends for the man he was...hard to put this book down!

    Way over the top, but worth it.

    I listened to the first two books in the Socrates Trilogy and enjoyed them very much. This on bothered me at the start. The narration seemed overly dramatic and I felt like I was being “put on.” Then I realized that I was accustomed to a neutral narrator speaking in a neutral cadence with neutral emphasis, ie: white. The written text would be read this, but the narrator as well as the characters are using the phrasing and emphasis that is authentic to the context. Whether this is an accurate observation or not, the story is richer for it. For me anyway.

    Unexpected

    I expected a mystery with big action oriented solutions. Instead it was as rich with character development as I’ve read. Could well have a subtitle: people aren’t only the worst thing they’ve done. Despite it being different from what I expected it moved right along. I would have been happy with it being twice as long.

    Loyal Fan but...

    I absolutely LOVE Mr. Mosley's books but this one left me blah. Felt like the story was hovering and stalled. The ending felt rushed.
    Not my favorite.

    Zero stars if I didn't know better of his work!

    If I didn't know better I would think this was not unlike one those movies with well known actors and writers that grabs the attention of its already huge number of followers. After all they've done great things before.... right? Everybody makes a buck but the watcher or this case the listener thinking "what was that"!!
