it's up there with the best. i am hooked on Michael Connelly's Bosch series.
I compare much of Connelly's Bosch series of books to Lee Child's Jack Reacher books. Great characters and the books are to the point, fast paced gripping with great twists.
Yes i have, he is a great narrator. amazing at acting out different voices and emotions of the scenes.
No, i am not reading that type of book. this isn't exactly mills and boon.
Can't get enough of the Bosch series. i am so worried as am coming to the end of getting through them all. What next, i like Lee Child's books and Michael Connelly's books. need to find something similar.
Good start to a series. This is the first of the series I've read. Given this one I'll continue down the rest.
This is definitely a police procedural, with lots of those kinds of details. It seemed very well researched (not that I'd know). The protagonist, Harry Bosch (and the fantastic narrator, Dick Hill), really made the book for me. The mystery was pretty good. I liked the backstory of the Vietnam War.
Listened to over half of the book and didn't care how it ended. Lost interest right away. Had to listen to passages over and over and still just could not get into it. Dissapointing.
Yes, but I had a hard time not thinking about Jack Reacher with Dick Hill narrating.
Sure, good story, kind of predictable though
Again, sounded like a Jack Reacher book.
This is the first book that I have read in this series. It was great.
trying to solve the mystery of who & why
author did a great job of creating several suspicious charactors & possible motives
I can never get enough of Harry Bosch! The way Connelly portrays him is unbelievable.
He's no James Bond which is what makes him all the more lovable. He has his ups and downs and things come to him slowly at times. He's a very down to earth person and you just can't help liking him. The cases that he gets into are also very complicated that you don't want to let your concentration stray even for a second.
This is a solid Harry Bosch detective novel. I was not especially engaged in the first half, but it was good writing and the narrator was excellent, so I stuck with it. Harry was investigating the death of a fellow soldier from his tunneling division in Vietnam. He follows up on clues while being forced to work with a female FBI agent. At the same time, Harry is being investigated by internal affairs. It felt like too much of a typical police mystery which was interesting but not engaging. The second half of this picked up, and the narrator was terrific throughout. There were many twists and turns, and I liked the ending. Good action and it came together well.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
The IAD called Lewis and Clark.
Yes. Listening to Concrete Blonde at this moment.
When Lewis and Clark is tagging Harry and Harry throws something off a bridge.
Bosch is a great detective, set in his ways. Look forward to listening to more of his series.
