Love the characters and the narrator. Very good plot development, and the legal aspects of the book are very well researched and presented. Comes with my highest recommendation.
Excellent story, kept you on the edge of your seat the whole time. The narrator was great. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was the annoying background music at the end and beginning of some chapters. They must have thought it would add to the drama but it only made it distracting to focus on the story and was irritating.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
I've been in Los Angeles 33 years so I really appreciated this entertaining albeit fictional portrayal of some possible aspects of LA law. Very entertaining.
This is my first Connelly book and I'm now hooked on Connelly! His style, story telling ability, plot, everything. I came across this book and Connelly because I was looking for a lawyer/courtroom novel and did I ever hit the jackpot! Gripping, exciting, suspense, everything. I'm now on my fourth Connelly book. You won't be sorry for getting this book at all, the best book I've read in quite awhile.
This is an interesting story, I never grew tired of it and my mind didn't wander. Just when I thought I had it figured out, the story changed. The narrator is excellent, all the different voices really brought the story to life.
A very nice, well thought out crime procedural told from the POV of the defense attorney in the case -- an interesting (and good) choice since most crime procedurals are are told from the POV of the police.
It's a quick read that keeps you guessing. Filled with characters who are flushed out enough to be identifiable and whose back story doesn't bog down the story. The plot is full of twists and turns but avoids anything "out of left field" or too contrived.
Especially fun for those of us who live in the Los Angeles area. He calls out many, many well known locations, streets, land marks and restaurants. He talks about getting stuck in traffic on Laurel Canyon and the Garlic Cheese Bread at the Smokehouse in Burbank. Made me feel like I was right there.
I won't lie - I drove across the state just to listen to this book! Fantastic story and great character. The Lincoln Lawyer was a fun escape. You will enjoy the twists. The narration was good too, wish there was more vocal variety. I really like Jim Dale (Harry Potter) - now that is an amazing narrator!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the predicament Mickey Haller found himself in during his attempt to defend his client. The narrator was extremely convincing in his portrayal of the defense attorney and the dilemma he needed to solve.Someone should make a movie out of this wonderful courtroom drama.
