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.
Narrator made this book extra interesting. Unexpected twist was
Silence of the lambs as far as the chase of the bad guy.
The scene in the alley.
Wow, I really don't know.
My first book by Connelly but it won't be my last. This writer is head and
shoulders above the norm.
Rachel. Her character kept you wondering her motives
No, but he was very good.
When Jack found out about why his brother had the foreign substance in his mouth. Very real and sad.
I will read/listen again!
