There were enough "turns in the road" on this story to keep things interesting as it went along. A little crime, a little romance, and a few dead ends...before the whole story came together.
Great story and better narration. For me, the reading can make a bad story tolerable and a good story great entertainment. This one makes you sure that Harry is real and actually working in LA. So entertaining that it made me want to right this review - and I'm not even done listening to it!
Good story, excellent characterization,intriguing plot, great reading and great book. I like Harry Bosch. Highly recommended+++!
I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.
If you like Michael Connelly, he is at his best. Good plot, well read and a great character in Harry Bosch.
The glowing reviews and Audie award greatly influenced my decision to buy this book. I found the reading forced, stilted, and choppy. Len Cariou cut up. Sentences. Adding phrases like. Extra appendages. This is annoying in any work, but especially a first person account. And the music! It would be okay if it did something to enhance the mood or story line, but this was just stuck in anywhere like a gratuitous sex scene in a movie. Even so, I tried to get past all this and get interested in the story. Mostly it was just dull and not at all engaging. Connelly/Bosch didn?t share enough clues to for the audience to try to figure whodunit. Bosch stumbled on the revealing clue and then we all knew whodunit. I?m glad I stuck it out to the end, though, because there were two genuine surprises. If only the rest of the book were as good as the last hour.
Yes... the voice of the partner who was bed ridden. It is is AWFUL. I hated listing to it. One could do a better job of getting a voice that is going through a hard time.... I could not focus at all. The rest is great. well written and presented.
Moving strong and intellectually fun.
Harry of course.
Cant comment on this one.
Please use good voices. for all characters. a half raspy voice is NOT attractive.... SORRY ! BAD CHOICE.....
The story was not thrilling or exciting. Quite boring.
Plot more dangerous and exciting
Needed better differences in voice character... some were just silly.
Idk... the whole thing was not good.
I found this book to be entertaining and enjoyable. The author is very descriptive and the reader does a good job.
