    The Tempest Tales PDF EPUB ✓ The TempesteBook tempest ebok, tales ebok, The Tempest mobile, The Tempest Tales PDFEPUBWell this was a very entertaining take on an old idea good vs evil in the battle for men's souls and destinies It had a lot of the street smart flavor and memorable characters of Mosley's best works and was very reminiscent intentionally so of Langston Hughes to whom it was dedicated Joshua the Accounting Angel was a particularly well drawn character and I really felt for him as he struggled with his burgeoning humanity while trying to do his job of convincing Tempest to accept his eternal damnation The one I had trouble with was Tempest I loved him I hated him I sympathized with him but I never really believed in him It felt like Mosley was having trouble holding onto the character Tempest would go from being a poor uneducated man who said things like Im'a axe you a uestion to talking about an incident in science class involving exploding Bunsen burners and secondary explosions due to pent up gases in

    The Tempest Tales PDF EPUB ✓ The TempesteBook tempest ebok, tales ebok, The Tempest mobile, The Tempest Tales PDFEPUBIn this entertaining short novel Walter Mosley reworks the ancient theme of an Angel disguised as a human on a mission This book is also a tribute to Langston Hughes and his Jesse B Semple stories When Tempest Landry arrives at the pearly gates he refuses to accept the judgement that he is a sinner Tempest is sent back to earth and Joshua Angel follows to convince him This leads to discussions about good vs bad free will fairness circumstance desire and One of my favorites is “Is a Mistake a Sin” Philosophical ideas and street smarts are debated in a light but thought provoking way There are several twists to the story as the Angel experiences many ‘unheavenly’ emotions such as passion and jealousy Although Joshua Angel is
