Certainly. Harry Bosch is a must read. I read most of the Bosch and Haller series and Michael Connelly does write a captivating story.
Always, Harry. Even though he tends to run it alone when he should keep his partner apprised of what is going on, Harry digs up the answers. While this is not good for real life crime fighting, it does make for good fiction crime fighting.
This was the only weak point. While the narrator did a solid job, he doesn't seem up to the task of narrating character driven novels. There was little distinction between the characters' voices or suspense in the narration. I will listen to him again but because I want to listen to the book not the narrator.
I'm not going to give away what my headline "until now?" means. Listen to the book and discover for yourself.
I would of never picked up another Connelly book if this was my first. It's a very dull and routine storyline. Not up to the standards of some of his finer pieces that came before and after this book.
Narration was very poor. The narrator was basically the same voice throughout.
I picked this to finish out all the Bosch series books. I'm not quite finished with it, so maybe the story will redeem itself, but the narration cannot.
I really like most of Michael Connelly's books and but I felt like this one did not did not give us a clear ending. I don't want to 'sort of' know who did it... I want the book done, completed, the real killer caught or dead. The character development was great and for those Connelly lovers... if I were going to try to interpret stuff here I would say that this one was more about Harry and his path than the mystery itself. I buy Connelly books purely for the entertainment factor. I don't want to think too much and I like a clean ending tied up with a bow...the little synopsis or 'ah ha' moment where you find out exactly what happened. Unlike many of his others... there is no moment where it all comes completely together and you know exactly what actually happened.
Like most Bosch good movement in the story line. Harry relations in the dept. always adds to the story.
Yes, have and will.
He was fine
Harry Bosch book 8 in the series ranks somewhere in the middle of the pack. Weird endinng didn't see that coming.
I think for the first Time in the series Harry Bosch didn't get suspended or in trouble with his supervisors. His ability to solve a case where know one else can.
He is ok, but not the best narrator in this series. His Harry Bosch voice doesn't sound rough enough. He needs to sound older too.
Uncovering the story behind the Bones.
Consistenly good listening.
Michael Connelly continues with this series by keeping the thread going, tying in details from past novels into the current one. It gives each novel more depth and meaning. I feel like I know Harry Bosch. Michael Connelly has done his research and the technical details are accurate and pertintent to the story line.
The narrator was acceptable, however I prefer other narrators.
The Harry Bosch series is an interesting, entertaining story about a believable detective.
I really like Michael Connelly. He has an amazing way of drawing your attention one direction and hitting you from the other. There was plenty of that in this book. The only drawback was the narrator so read it, don't listen to it...unless it is my melodious voice you want to hear, then call me.
Of course, I've read several. Some are better than others, this one is sort of in the middle.
A little more character development & I didn't really by the ending. Sort of a rush job to set up following books?
Yes, &'certainly for someone trying to knock out the whole series, it's just not the best of the lot.
I've read many of Connelly's books. This is a good book that shows how important some cold cases become to detectives. I was not surprised that Harry became involved with someone as a result of the case, and it does not surprise me that it was another officer. Connelly keeps referring back to the officer so, to me, the importance of her character is evident in the end. I like that Harry's character is not willing to accept the easy answer to a case. He thinks he knows the conclusion, but something doesn't add up so he keeps going until he finds the right answer.
