I wanted to like this book, and the narrator is just awesome, but I found it very hard to follow. I stuck it out to the end, and by then I was completely lost! I listen while driving, which is probably not conducive to this particular novel.
I agree with the previous reviewer who said this book was like a screen play. Heavy on the dialog, it places the action in the background. I ended up skipping to the end (something I never do) after two-thirds of the way in. I just couldn't take the boring speeches by the victim's father, who figures heavily in the plot line. The ending was also very anti-climatic, much like The Wire.
Characters not real to life. Plot is so ;thin one falls through the ice!I guess the author just got tired, and ended the book. What a waste of time!
Okay, I did listen to the entire novel. The narrators voice is pleasant and same for all characters.
Scenes change much too quickly leaving me puzzled. But hey the plot is very thin if at all. What city is this taking place? I thought New York but it's not.
At the beginning we learn that a young man has been fatally shot. One suspect is interrogated. Then it's bits and pieces of conversation but no actual investigation.
At the end of this I'm guessing the author dropped his pencil and his notes got jumbled.
I like unabridged novels. When I first joined Audible, many were abridged. That has changed. Non-fiction, politics, bios are favorites
The reader had a good voice but the author had a great voice. The language of New York was so rich. I really enjoyed listening to this book.
