Comments Archibald Lawless, Anarchist at Large (A Vintage Short)

  • Andrew Kline

    A great intro to a very intriguing characterI hope this was Mosley's way of trying out a character he plans to expand on. I would definitely read a series of Lawless novels.

    Archibald Lawless is a complicated character in the short story, Archibald Lawless, Anarchist written by Walter Mosley. He works outside of the law with I would say his personally picked vigilante team or workers. To me, he became like Robin Hood. He works for the good of others but not without helping himself to the goodies like money, etc. In this instance, he hired Felix Orleans, whom I liked. He's a journalist student hired by Archibald as a scribe. Felix becomes more than a scribe or secret [...]

    Hard to follow at times, the ending - and thus looming impression that more will follow - is better than the overall story itself. Still Mosley has a way of doing things with characters that earns his generous and multi-generational praise.

    Need more Felix OrleanAnother interesting white knuckle ride from Mr Mosley. His characters are thinkers which I find refreshing. Hope to find more Felix Orlean stories down the road.

    When I saw this in the Kindle store for $.99 I couldn't pass it up. I'm glad I didn't. The young Felix Orlean, journalism student, gets schooled in the true ways of the world by Archibald Lawless when he answers a want ad for a "scribe." If you like a conspiracy theory, give this one a read.
