I like Connelly but this was not one of his better efforts. Never real felt any attachments to the characters and although I made it through the book (that means something), I was glad when it ended.
Say something about yourself!
The narrator says "peee-dophile" instead of pedophile. He also says "hooowhat, hoowhen, hoowhere" it's weird.
Professional female with little time for the fun things (cooking, reading and traveling)!
I had read this story number of years ago and had forgotten that i had read it! It was a great story then, and it still is. Thanks to Audible's return policy, I'll be able to correct that error. Michael Connelly just doesn't disappoint.
Connelly tells a good story and I've always liked his characters. I think this one could have used a bit more editing--it gets a little long-winded in places. I liked the reader--good emotion and very clear voices that seemed natural for the characters.
A great story and kept you guessing untill the end.
The Narrows which was the follow-up book
The end when it became obvious who the Poet was.
No one moment
The use of literature: the tension between police and journalists and the state police v FBI interesting. A rather monotonous delivery and some predictable story lines a problem.
The use of Edgar Allan Poe. Was interesting. The predictable love interest least so
A different reader
No. Too old
No! Because there are so many books and too little time!
It was a great listen! Good reader, with a story that kept you on the edge of your seat!
I think the overall book was so good, it was hard to pick a favorite scene!
So far it is my favorite Jack Reacher book by Lee Child!
haven't read the print
he made it easy to listen and each character was readily different
Would not recommend the book because the narrator turned the story into a sleeper. Although Michael Connelly is one of my favorite writers and The POET should be another great read, the nondescript voice and performance of the narrator made it hard to decipher between characters at times. That, in turn, had me repeating parts to see who was speaking or losing track of what was happening. Very monotonous voice which sounded the same in every conversation.
A great story needs to be presented by a great narrator, otherwise I would prefer to read it instead of listening to it so I can apply the personality I imagine the character would have.
The story is very good. The reader was good but reminded me of the old 60's cop shows.I think very good overall but was my favorite kind of read.
