This title was my 7th audiobook, and in my opinion the best so far. The storyline is strong without a lot of unnecessary detail or tangents, which are often harder to follow in audio format. The narration is good, clear, and easy to listen to. I listen on 3 hours trips out of state, this really made the last two trips fly by. I couldn't wait to hear the rest of the story each time I reluctantly went back to work. The other reviews are correct, a great buy.
Give this one a try. Connelly is a great writer who crafts interesting characters be they major or minor. IMO, he managed to make Mickey Haller just balance the line between sleazy and honorable. A good brain candy listen.
If you are looking for a book to tell you the day to day life of an attorney that works out of his car this is a great book. If you are looking for suspence and interesting character development look elsewhere. Great book for someone who needs boring material to fall asleep to.
This audiobook is very good. This is one of those books that sucks you in and makes you want to listen.
Great story, Great narrator!
I have listed to 40 or 50 audiobooks and the narrator for this book is one of the best I have ever heard. Anyone that listens to lots of audiobooks knows that a narrator can make or break the audio version of a book.
My Ipod was permanently attached to my head. Did not want to stop listening to this book. It's informative, funny, realistic....a must listen !
The story was exciting. The reader was excellent. One of the best books I have listened to. I would listen to any books the reader did, he was articulate and easy to hear the different voices used for the different people.
For the average laymen unfamiliar with handcuffs or proceedings, this turns out to be a very good (listeners lesson) on what can/does take place in the criminal process of investigation, arraignment, plea, trial and all the intricate maneuvers a defense could employ.
Long character development to start which could have been shortened, but once I got past all that, I stayed awake all night, the remaining 8 hours of the listen without sleep. I was numb with the realization there really are (Sick People) out there. This is a chiller, and would make an excellent (Dont go, Im Frightened to be alone tonight) Movie. Wow, what a listen!
Excellent character development and it's interesting where the title comes from within the book. Good listen and I'm sure a great read.
I started listening to this book and was instantly hooked! It was fascinating to learn what really goes into presenting a defense case. I loved Mickey's brilliant yet fractured logic, and his conflicted feelings about his life, as well as the business of defending some of L.A.'s slimiest characters. Adam Grupper's reading was inspired, and Connelly's book had me dreaming up things to do so I could look productive while I was actually resisting turning off my overworked iPod. I haven't been so addicted to a book in a long time! Now I am in a sad state of withdrawl.
