I picked this book up to satisfy a task on my Read Harder Challenge. The task: Read the first book in a series by a person of color. I have to say, I am likely to pick up the next one! I really enjoy series reading. I like the idea of meeting a character and then learning more about them and seeing them become more real in book after book. Characters like Spenser and Kinsey Milhone are familiar friends I enjoy spending time with. Time to add Easy Rawlins to the list.
Things to like about reading this series:
- There are at least 12 books already published and the wait at the library is sure to be short.
- The Post WWII setting is a bit out of my comfort zone – always a good idea I think.
- Easy has lots of neat side characters to interact with. This creates a realistic feel to a series. They supporting cast helps the reader to understand the main character so much more.
- The story was complicated and hard to follow which is good for me as I can be a lazy reader.
What series do you enjoy? Please comment so I can add to my massive TBR list!
