I would absolutely recommend this audibook. There is something on Buck Schiner voice that makes it you believe and feel close to Jack. I think the voice fits perfectly. As usual, it is difficult to get used to the voice in the beginning for me but once you get into the story, Buck narration shines.
The story takes you through different stages and I'd love to listen how everything developed. I felt involved in the story as I was trying to find myself what was happening.
I have not read/listen many thrillers, I would say that my thoughts and feelings were closed to those I had when listening The Cuckoo's Calling
Jack by far.... Detective Beckas was a good one as well
Not really. It made me think and that was all I wanted..
A good thriller and a good buy if you enjoy serial killer thrillers.
Excellent book...very suspenseful & thought-provoking. Loved it up until the last few chapters, so without giving away the ending it just went beyond what was believable (up until that point), and lost me. Would definitely recommend it!!
This book seems contrived to me relative to a Bosch book
The centrai premise, that a reporter would be "embedded" in the FBI, is not believable. Also, there is a point in the book where the propostion is that everybody gets bore and sleepy on a stakeout waiting on a serial killer, so our hero goes for coffee. Really?
Lost of good voices
Untill the end, yes. The end is a bad joke.
Don't let this be your first Connelly.
If you can remember the world before cell phones, instant messages and remember the thrill of your first phone modem this is a great book. If you don't remember it well its still a good story but may be a bit dated. I'm old enough, and I loved it.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
The twists and turns, it fooled me to the very end and I can usually see what's coming. Also there were many humorous moments that had me laughing down the road.
I really grew to love this narrator, he did a great job...I guess the main character Jack would be my favorite.
A fox in the henhouse....
This story was different from any other story I have been reading. I enjoy this author and he didn't disappoint me. I usually can figure out the plot and the "who done it" but in this case it was a surprise. I enjoyed the reader also.
I have read many of his books and thought the Lincoln Lawyer was his best. But, this was better even though I new how it would end.
My biggest problem with The Poet and many books in this genre is the lack of character development. I had read The Scarecrow (the follow-up) to this book when it was released and never even realized it had anything to do with this book until after I finished The Poet. This is a rather straight forward crime novel that takes a few good twists at the end. The characters end up being paper thin and for that its only a slightly entertaining summer read.
yes a good mystery that keeps you engaged
most of the time
his voice and cadence made it feel real
no i wanted it to last a while so i could savor it
great job on book and reader
