Only for the second time in my Audible history I was not able to complete an audio book (the first one was Count of Monte Cristo). After little over an hour I drove to my local book store and purchased the hardcover.
At first I hoped that the narrator would eventually "warm up", relax and get better, but he only got worst. His performance is way bellow the standard of excellence I grew to appreciate and expect from Audible. Please do not invite him back.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. Okay, the narrator was so-so, but the storyline was interesting and the plot had quite a few twists that kept my interest up. Having a legal background, I particularly enjoyed the court banter, the investigation and the twists in the end. In fact, it got so interesting, I found it hard to stop listening and had to find out what was going on. I also liked the constant banter between Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller. Great stuff!!
Like Kaye, I liked the Lincoln Lawyer better and I liked the narrator better too. But this was still excellent! Well-paced and interesting throughout.
I've read and listened to books by this author. My previous experiences with Connelly's books was good. The Brass Verdict was even better, but for the narrator. He was disastrous. Just as quickly as I was drawn into the storyline, I was yanked out by the horrendous reality of a pitiful narrator. He would be great in a reading of the character Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but that is about the height of his range as a narrator. This story was so good, which is why I'm so disappointed in this narration.
I kind of stumbled on Michael Connelly by accident. I picked up a book thinking it was another author and went to bed. I got all comfortable and to my surprise I had the wrong book. I had picked up "City of Bones"....I loved the book and immediately the next day went to the library and took all the Michael Connelly books I could...
Anyway....I've read tham all and this (Brass Verdict ) is right up there. This is also my first Connelly audio book. I loved the Lincoln Lawyer and loved the Brass Verdict. I hope Michael Connelly never stops writing this series....
Another great Michael Connelly book. Every Harry Bosch book I've read has been a revelation. The reader was perfectly suited to the material. I was sorry when the book was finished.
I either do read the summaries or forget them for my favorite authors, so after getting started on this book, I thought Harry Bosch wasn't going to be in the book. Little did I know he would join in (book is told from the lawyer's point of view) and really shake things up...
Another AWESOME novel. Highly recommended.
