We just returned from a 10.5 hour car trip and we had to listen to the last 30 minutes in the house as we could not wait to hear how it ended. A good story and the reader was excellent.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Read a lot of Connelly and grew tired of Harry Bosch. Went to Michael Haller fora break. Totally happy about it. I' a born again Connelly fan. Will go back to Harry again. I'd you like Connelly, this will really please you.
I really did not expect to like this book as much as I did -- even after having read all the other rave reviews. The book was flawless. Sheer entertainment. I have read Connelly before but don't remember liking his previous books as much as this one. Will now go back and see if I find another one.
I'm a big fan of John Grisham, and my favorite is King of Torts, but now, another has to share the throne in #1. The Lincoln Lawyer was well written, and has an excellent narrator to convey the story. I had trouble turning off the audio play and was annoyed anytime I was interrupted. This was my first time ready a work of Michael Connelly and I'm well pleased!
Wow. That's the word that sums this audiobook up. Just wow. Fantastic narration. Why doesn't Grupper do more of these? Not just the narration however. This novel is Connelly's best since The Poet (which was previously his best). Absolutely recommended. I don't give five stars lightly. Mickey Haller is a flawed hero. What a wild ride. I didn't miss Harry Bosch for one single moment. In fact, this was a refreshing departure from the Bosch series.
As much as I like Harry Bosch, it's just uncanny how Connelly's sidetrips FROM the Bosch series end up being my very favorites. So far those departures include Blood Work, The Poet, and now this one. I haven't yet read the other departure from the Bosch series (Void Moon) but certainly plan on it.
Hopefully Connelly plans to return to this character. A case with Harry and Mickey crossing paths in the legal system seems to be the logical course of action.

Great book. Great characters. Great plot. Classic Connelly. I really enjoyed it...the kind of book you sit in the car for just a few extra minutes to find out what's gonna happen.
I tend to read more non-Fiction books, but The Lincoln Lawyer is really making me reevaluate the constraint. I truly enjoyed the book, the characters, and the sleaziness of main character while at same time seeing him as someone doing good - in his own way. Great ending!!
This is a book that captures your imagination from the very beginning! The main character is imperfect but still quite likeable and very intelligent. The suspense kept me going up to the very end. This is one of those books that you don't want to stop listening to! I took my Ipod out of the car and kept listening in the house, something I never do! I'd never read or listened to any of Connelly's books before, but I may be hooked, now!
I've read almost all of his books - this one was just fantastic. Couldn't stop listening to it - with it's twists and turns. You were never quite able to figure out the ending and even when it finally came IT had twists & turns.
Brilliantly written AND read !
