I really enjoyed this book. The 'criminal mind' was very well developed, however, it did not seem very plausible. And at the end, the 'criminal' just fell apart...it did not add up.
I listened to this book when ever I could, which is something. I passed over another book that I had on my ipod and preferred this one. I found the story pretty unbelievable though, and a little bit too neat and tidy.
I disliked the narrator. His character voices were all so similar. They were pretty bad. At one point he said " and he sighed" and then he made a sighing noise. weird.
Anyway, thought this book was only so so.
I enjoyed this book very much, and listened to it via audio twice. When I realized the 2nd time I had already read this, I decided to keep going since it had been years, and a good story. I enjoyed the characters, and the story. At some points it seemed to dragged, but not too bad, and not too often. Regardless, worth the read and I would recommend.
Probably not. I expected it to be on the level of the Harry Bosch books . . . the characters didn't capture my attention as much.
Maybe . . . just because I didn't like it as much as I thought I would doesn't mean someone else wouldn't like it.
Yes. His performance was great as always.
No extreme reaction, just so so
If you are looking for a light mystery that is what you will get. Characters were interesting if not exciting...... I enjoyed it, didnt love it
It is in the top 10
It engaged and did a good job of keeping you thinking. Liked how the plot developed and the ultimate ending was not obvious through out the book. Liked that the good guys won but that was not always the case.
No first one
Neither just enjoyed the plot
Intriguing Inventive Exciting
Can't think of one.
Dick Hill's narration brings a steely, determined tone to the novel that might not come through as well by my reading the book.
I listened to it in three sittings because I was so curious to know "who done it."
I would have preferred less four letter words. I did enjoy this book, though.
Would read another Connelly book, but not sure I'd like to listen to anything else narrated by Dick Hill. I like it when the narrator sounds like a real person rather than someone narrating a book. His delivery was way too dramatic for me.
I may have preferred to read this book rather than listen to it--that may have made it more enjoyable.
Much too dramatic a delivery. He sounded like he was reading rather than acting out the book. Not good with the voices either.
Yes, and I did picture Clint Eastwood as McCaleb. It read very well.
My favorite character is Terry McCaleb himself, of course. Because you're always with him, know what he's thinking, guessing his next moves. At times I felt like I was riding in the car with him on his chase for the evidence.
That would have to be Terry's sidekick, Buddy. He's irritating but also a good friend. The narrator portrayed him well.
Yes, I could have easily read it in one sitting if I had the time. I tend to
I did not read the Terry McCaleb books in series order so it gave me the background I was missing. I like him even more now.
Very different and much better then the movie. Even if you have seen the movie, you don't know how this book will end. I enjoyed it.
