... there is some very annoying acting when it comes to the actor reading the disabled cop's dialogue. I found those parts extremely grating.
Am going 50/50 on the MC novels. Really like Lincoln Lawyer and some of the later "non-Harry B" books. Tried to get into series by starting at begining, but the 1st two seemed dated... All about Vietnam and too predicable by 1/2. But I liked them enough to give the series another shot. Jumped up to Lost Light as it had decent reviews. Story was good if a long time coming. Was really hating Harry not being a cop as was he. Narrator was great. Am already bored by HB's not being able to work a computer. Old, tired play and it's turning up in next book too. Drop it, my Grandmother can go online and check the weather now-a-days. If you like the series, you don't need my input, it you're on the edge, it's OK and if you're new to MC, start w/ the Lincoln Lawyer and Chasing the Dime.
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.
