I alway know when I enjoy listening to an audio book as I generally listen again within a few days. This has not been the case with this novel.
"Lost Light" left me somewhat lost as to where the novel was trying to be, most certainly written in a style that recaptures some of the 50's greats in American crime writing. However taking this theme and trying to pull it into the 21st Century just did not work for me.
I also found the story line slow and contrived, there-again I've probably been reading to much "Ed McBane"
Finally, I found the narration artifical and somewhat forced in places.
This is a great choice for those who like complex plots with realistic characters although the start is slow. After the first CD you are hooked.
Good read, reminiscent of the Mike Hammer series of the 50's but with an updated plot. The narrator makes a good story even better. The tone and inflection he delivers sets the perfect tone - he is Harry Bosche! If you listen while commuting, this one will make you sit in your garage when you get home, sucking fumes, just to hear more!
The audiobook is good, but it slowed down in the middle and has too many twists to try to keep up with, but i was satified with it overall
This is my first audiobook to download.
I am really impressed with the process of how it worked, but the reader also added alot of depth to the book. His voice overs and narrative reading really added to the story.
