zombies, gore and good old fashioned detective yarns, a bit of sci fi and did I mention the zombies?!!
love connelly. He is a master of the genre. This book does not disappoint. narration is top notch . 5 stars.
The reader has a trick of appearing to run out of breath and gagging on his words in the middle of a sentence, apparently as a means of conveying emotion. He seems quite proud of this technique, because he uses it over and over again, pointlessly and without any regard to the dramatic context. Generally, the reading was grossly overacted to the point of distracting from the flow of the story.
Seems that Bosch's attitude has finally done him in but that turns out not to be the case. He decides while on leave he will investigate a 30+ year old murder, his mother. The case takes him to Florida and back to LA but he uncovers lots of mysteries along the way. His world has more conspiracy theories than anyone should have to deal with but he perseveres and with some not exactly straight forward moves he solves the case. It doesn't end where it begins but he does get cleared of wrong doing. Again, Dick Hill is a superb narrator.
This is a great police procedural. A great mystery solved and an intimate look inside Harry Bosch. All the accolades you read are true, this is a great series and I HIGHLY recommend it if you are into the genre. You will find no better!!!!
Really deep book
It was somber
He is a good narrator
It was somber
No nit really
If you have never listened to Dick Hill perform, then you need to. Mr. Hill really makes the characters come alive!
Many of the Harry Bosch mysteries are very good. I highly recommend them!
Oh, man. He is simply the best, in my opinion. He does so many different voices that I often believe there are many actors reading the book!
I'm new to the Harry Bosch Series, but I loved this one because we get to see "inside" Harry Bosch, learn about what makes him tick, and see why he's a little damaged from his past. All this makes Harry a well thought out character who doesn't disappoints in his humanness and intelligence as a detective and person. Great listen. Dick Hill is excellent as a narrator, I seek him out as a reader.
Dick Hill does a great job in narration, it's almost like listening to a radio play. Real voice acting sounds like it was ripped from a movie, rather than just read. That goes for the first 4 books in the Harry Bosch series that I've listened to so far.
Harry Bosch comes across as the tough, sarcastic heavy smoking detective that was popular years ago. His quips come across with delightful accuracy in Dick Hill's narration. I laughed often.
I'm old and sarcastic myself, so maybe that's why I like it :)
I won't spoil it for you, but I will say that Connelly pulls all the strings together behind the mysterious life of Bosch (at least as we know it so far). This is masterful writing. The plot and characters are so interwoven, and the suspense is incredible. Hats off, too, for Dick Hill's reading. Very well done.
I found the book quite haunting and gave a lot of insight into Harry Bosch and his feelings
I am not sure I could compare Harry Bosch with another series it stands out - its different
I like the narrator because his voice is Harry Bosch
Don't Miss It
If you're a Harry Bosch fan and like me you started with the newer novels then this is a great read and gives you an insight into the man who became a detective.
