The book 47 written by Walter Mosley was a very interesting story. But overall, it was an okay book showing how much detail there was in the book. Reading this book showed me what it was like being a slave and how much slaves suffered back in the day. I learned some things throughout the book like, what roles slaves had, how they treated one another. As shown, the book wasn't th The book 47 written by Walter Mosley was a very interesting story
47 is a book that will attract young urban males and suburban ones who aspire to the image, with its unforced inferences to the contemporary enslavers of prison and intra-group violence. While quite character-driven, the novel is replete with continuing action, scientific vision and highly imagined hardware, all of which fully engage teen and preteen boys, who are frequently kinesthetic learners. Books with such depth that will also easily engage adolescent boys are rare.
For Sally McCartin . The story you are about to read concerns certain events that occurred in the early days of my life. It all happened over a hundred and seventy years ago. For many of you it might sound like a tall tale because I am no older today than I was back there in the year 1832. But this is no whopper I'm telling; it is a story about my boyhood as a slave and my fated encounter with the amazing Tall John from beyond Africa, who could read dreams, fly between galaxies, and make friends with any animal no matter how wild.
Walter Mosley is the author of the acclaimed Easy Rawlins and Fearless Jones series of mysteries, as well as numerous other works of fiction and nonfiction. He has won the Anisfield-Wolf award, a Grammy Award, and in 2004 received a PEN USA lifetime achievement award. He was born in Los Angeles and lives in New York. I am not sure what to say about 47. It is a very good book, but as I read it, I kept expecting it to be better. I am a huge Walter Mosley fan, so maybe my expectations were too high. I wanted a young adult novel dealing with slavery to knock my socks off or leave me speechless. I think Mr. Mosley did a great job describing the ing that was so prevalent in the south and an even greater job of explaining how evil that kind of thinking was. I found the characters interesting but kind of one dimensional.
WALTER MOSLEY (Author, "47"): Many black people, young and old, are afraid to read about slavery. They're afraid because they don't want to identify with the main characters because it's just too heartbreaking to do. And so I wanted to write a book that, you know, it's going to be-all the terrible things about slavery are gonna be there but in the end you know that your main character is not only gonna survive but is going to thrive. BATES: That character is a young slave boy who's referred to by number, as are all the slaves on his Georgia plantation . BATES: It probably won't spoil it for you to know that 47's story isn't finished by the end of the book. Walter Mosley says the science-fiction element in the book gives him the freedom to follow 47 through history. Mr. MOSLEY: I would love to do a series of books about 47.
Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. 1. 47. Mosley Walter.
