Yes - I have always liked the Bosch stories. They are well written and entertaining.
Harry is always my favorite but I also like all of the other characters
The series continues with Harry Bosch. The book is well written and keeps you wanting to listen to see how the events unfold.
I have enjoyed the entire Harry Bosch series, and this one was no exception. I enjoyed the storyline, the twists and turns of the plot.
The reader wasn't able to change his voice tone and inflection to represent the different characters; as a result, you were never really sure who was speaking. I had to rewind several times in order to determine which character was speaking. At times the reader's voice faded to nothing, and at other times, the reader's voice was so monotone it made listening difficult.
I didn't have an extreme reactions to the book other than the reader's voice. At times I became very frustrated trying to determine which character was speaking, but the storyline was good and the plot development kept me interested.
I enjoy the Harry Bosch series. And Connelly has given more depth to the series with some new characters. Making Bosch the suspect in a murder makes for an interesting plot. Richard M Davidson as narrator was a disappointment, though. He obviously did not do the homework in learning who Harry Bosch is. Instead the reading of the main character is a sterotype old grizzled detective. I could hear the rustle of the crumpled raincoat even though the setting is sunny LA. Good story, Narrator didn't bother to learn the character.
I actually that maybe I downloaded the wrong book in the Harry Bosch series after listening to Trunk Music and Angel's Flight. It's not because of the narrator, who did a poor job, but just because the character of Bosch doesn't even seem the same.
I'll never understand why places that do audio book narrations switch to a different reader, especially after 5 or 6 novels in a long series. It's really jarring and makes me not want to finish the books now. Ugh.
Michael Connelly brings another good Los Angeles Crime story with his familiar characters. Listeners have to wonder why the change in narrators? In the previous Connelly books, Dick Hill has a west coast sound. The narrator of this story, Richard Davidson, sounds like he is from the streets of New York. Did anyone tell him that this story is about characters from Los Angeles? Strong Connelly story, but the story teller was a problem.
Loved this book!! I love all Micharl Connelly's books, but this is definitely one of my favorites!!! LOVED IT!!
Having just listened to 3 of Connelly's legal/courtroom thrillers (the best I have ever heard/read - beats Grisham hands down) I was looking forward to my first Harry Bosh novel. Very disappointing. The plot lack credulity, the narrator was, well just like an off key vocalist failing to hit the right notes, the narrative movement was slow and the characters simply uninteresting. I know there are some good Bosh novels and I look l forward to them but this wasn't one of them.
