The exceptions to these limited choices were the gumshoe mysteries penned by Walter Mosley, Octavia E. Butler's dystopic sci-fi, the lighthearted fiction of Pearl Cleage...and now Balogun Ojetade's exciting "steamfunk". This book imagines Harriet Tubman as a superhero of sorts, in a world where she and other "Gifted" fight for good or evil. What starts out as a simple kidnapping case evolves into a sinister threat against the country--and that's as far as I can go without any spoilers!Read more ›
Not recommended for children, there are some very dark and violent moments.
Balogun writes in a rapid fire style with short, action packed chapters and colorful, unexpected characters. No one is as they seem and the story's twists and turns had me feeling like I was on a wild roller coaster ride and loving every minute of it.
One of the most entertaining aspects of Moses is the re-imaging of historical history. No one is safe from Balogun's imagination, and everyone ends up with a fresh identity to match the world he creates for us. The other characters are just as imaginative and vivid; my two favorites are Mama Maybelle and Black Mary. When you read the book you'll clearly see why. This book contains Part I, which is the original novella, and Part II, the continuation of Harriet's adventure. If you read the novella, don't just start with Part I. Balogun has expanded on Part I a bit so it's worth the re-read.
So get Moses: The Chronicles of Harriet Tubman, strap on your bicycle helmet and keep your hands inside the car. You'll enjoy the ride.
These books were fantastic, never once letting my mind wander. My hat off to the author, Balogun Ojetade for a great couple of books. I'll be back in his corner for more!
