Jack Strong - Walter Mosley 2.5 Stars
Walter Mosley is one of the most prolific writers around. By the end of this year alone, he would have released a total of four books, including the e-book, [b:Odyssey|18111738|Odyssey|Walter Mosley|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1385966683s/18111738.jpg|25437205], earlier in the year, the well-written and erotic [b:Debbie Doesn't Do It Anymore: A Novel|18339649|Debbie Doesn't Do It Anymore A Novel|Walter Mosley|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1378709949s/18339649.jpg|25893007], a new Easy Rawlins mystery coming later this year called [b:Rose Gold: An Easy Rawlins Mystery|20342538|Rose Gold An Easy Rawlins Mystery (Easy Rawlins, #13)|Walter Mosley|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1393787135s/20342538.jpg|28322758], and this one, Jack Strong. Not only does Mosley obviously not sleep, he is constantly challenging himself, and is always intriguing!

This short novella is no different. It follows a man with patchwork skin, multi-colored eyes, a middle finger of a black man, and the pinky of a white woman. Well, that's awkward. More importantly, his psyche is comprised of countless personalities (even one that just might be a wolf!) that are constantly rotating in dominance.

This fascinating concept makes way for interesting shifts in point-of-view as well as exciting surprises in Jack's abilities as different personalities come to the surface when needed with a variety of skills. The book is a bit disappointing though because it doesn't feel complete, instead it feels like a couple of chapters of an unfinished novel. Let's hope so, but this one failed to make a lasting impression. I'm still a fan though!
