With almost 800 books in my library, I am an experienced listener. I appreciate a well written good story. I am pretty critical of trash.
I have enjoyed many of Michael Connelly's books. I listened to the whole thing because I had it, must have bought it on a sale. I was also out of credits and desperate. It was just that ---tedious. nothing to really engage with. Dick Hill as the narrator doesn't help. his voice while great for many leading men characters, added a terseness that contributed to the tedium. I have said this before and will say it again. Dick Hill destroys women characters. He has no ability to give women voices other than insipid and weak.
There are other Michael Connelly books out there that are more entertaining. I would skip this one.
Yes I would. This book is awesome.the writer is amazing. . I just don't have any other words. You will not be disappointed at this book.
I liked when Terry was putting everything together and when he and graciella fell for each other..
The changes in his voice for the different characters.
Yes.. and I almost did..
I saw the series of books and how they all fall. I can't wait to move on to the next book.
The plot of this book kept me interested, though character development was somewhat lacking. The toothpick-chewing homicide cop was a cliche. The wrap-up regarding a few seconds that led to the killer was a bit hard to follow until the resolution.
I have to say that if I were the bereaved sister, I would probably have found this guy's overtures to the kid, along with the insistence that they should stay the night when they barely knew him, a bit creepy.
So I waited for this story to get interesting and become a thriller and it just didn't happen....I listened to like 17 out of 47 chapters and finally got tired of waiting. Maybe it becomes a thriller after that...but I got tired of waiting and stopped listening.
yes, good feeling story, that ends happily, and I fell in love with the main character.
love the scenes between him and his neighbor
yes I have, just as good as always!
it made me do both, but I don't think these were extreme
I liked this much better than the movie, because you get more of an "inside" to the story, and I always love Michael Connelly's stories
