I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
Definitely. I wanted to be a donor but because of a malady, I won't get to improve the life of another. Since reading Blood Work, I've read more about the subject and I will read more. Oops, the question has changed. Favorite character was McCaleb. His journey to accepting that he continued living because someone else had to die.
Dick Hill can be slow. His narration doesn't have a flow that makes my listening as enjoyable as I'd like. However, he was a competent narrator that didn't make me not want to listen. I did need to take a break here and there because of the narration.,
The novel is educational, suspenseful, tender. A novel worth reading.
Top 20%. It's a good little detective mystery novel.
I enjoy Dick Hill narrations.
The excellent narration by Dick Hill
Yes, it was a very interesting story, with differences from the movie version.
The different voices of each of the characters...it really brings them to life.
The fishing scene with the little boy.
This mystery was an unexpected pleasure. I had no real expectations, but the story just kept getting more and more interesting as it gathered momentum. Toward the end I couldn't stop listening because I wanted to see how it turned out. Although everything is there, I didn't see the solution to the mystery. The characters are interesting and complicated. If you like mysteries that keep you guessing with characters you can emphasize with, give this book a try.
I love to read, fly and play tennis. I always have a book and an audible book going at the same time. I'm a mystery/thriller junky.
There was a good story here and I liked Dick Hill's voice for the main character, Terry McCaleb but he wasn't especially good with the females and I think the voice of Graciela turned me off of her character. I didn't particularly like her character's personality anyway but the voice didn't help. I found her kind of sniveling - at least a little whiny at times & clingy. Terry McCaleb, without any badge or license, did a good job of finding the bad guy while staying within the law (mostly) and keeping the LA Detectives Bureau hating him. His exceptional FBI experience helped him and in the end was the entire reason for the murders. There were unusual twists and turns that kept me interested throughout. I learned alot about heart & organ transplants with this story. I enjoyed the book, I just wish I had read it, then maybe I would have a different attitude about the entire story. I'm not good with seeing movies for anything I've read or want to read either. I usually like to create my own characters in my minds eye; how they look and talk. I think I missed that with this reading.
Enjoying one good listen after the next!
Great narration! Great story! Truly and intriguing plot and story line. Characters were fully developed and relatable. Loved this book -- my first by Michael Connelly and my first McCaleb! Wanting more!
I was worried I wouldn't love this character and story line the way I have loved the Mickey Haller character and his stories, but Michael Connelly did not disappoint! Terry is a new favorite character! And the narrator did a fabulous job. Very satisfied!
I love audible. I
I enjoyed this book as I did the movie. It was a good plot and the story line moved along very nice. The narrator was excellent
Wow, this was the first in this series I have read/listened too. It kept me gripped from start to finish the final chapters had me riveted, listened to it through the night, never saw that one coming. A great thriller with a feel good ending. The narration was superb.
