The last fifty pages of this book was hugely frustrating reading I just wanted the book to end The idea for the story is a good one but there wasn't enough suspense or building of the plot A mysterious white man rents a basement for the summer from a black man in Easthamptons He stays in the basement in a cage a self imposed prisoner as punishement for his many crimes which he does not consider crimes He knows secrets about governments the wealthy and world systems yet to me he never disclosed anything that was worthy of being called top secret He's afraid of the dark though and is upset when he's placed in solitary by the black home owner who's now his warden The characters were weak; I felt no sympathy or any kind of attachement or emotion for anyone in the story I was reading and thinking about what I could read next; I was that boredMy friends keep talking about the genius of Walter Mosley's work I don't get it The Tempest Tales was better than this one but still I'm going to try one of his books

My friend Don gave me this book to read several years ago and it still affects me when I think about it The story begins with a strange reuest a wealthy white man named Bennet asks to rent out the basement of the home of Charles Blakey who is black Bennet builds a cage in the basement and eventually locks himself inside it Blakey is confused by the man's actions and after some philosophical discussions learns that Bennet is trying to atone for somethingI was totally absorbed in the book and loved the discussions about guilt punishment and redemption The novel is only 192 pages but it's very powerful I was reminded of this book because Don died last week It was an unexpected heart attack despite the fact that he was a runner and was in great shape Walter Mosley was Don's favorite writer and because of his enthusiasm I've read several of Mosley's books The Man in my Basement is my favorite because it is so thoughtful and well written and it reminds me of the good conversations I had with my friend I'd like to think that our friends never really leave us especially when we have good books to remember them by

REVIEW The Man in My Basement

The Man in My BasementTory of a young black man who agrees to an unusual bargain to save the home that has belonged to his family for generationsWal. I've read this book twice now and didn't really like it either time In general I like Mosley at least when he's writing as a crime writer With this book he abandons the crime genre to create a philosophical book which unfortunately failed to satisfy me What I like about Mosley's other books are his characters and dialog Easy Rawlins Fearless Jones and the characters from his other books are likable enough to give you a reason to pull for them Charles Blakey the main character of this book is a loser described as so in the book who doesn't seem to want anything from life And Anniston Bennet the man in the basement never evolves into anything other than a symbol of power evil and whiteness who is for some reason seeking redemption in this odd way I find the dialog between the two men highly convenient unrealistic and dull I don't know This book for me just falls a little flat
