Love to get a book that I can't stop reading. I love page turners
Easy to listen and keeps you wanting more. MC rings you in early on in story. No wonder there are so many books in this series
The story was okay, not much new or twisty. The characters and development were okay.
There were parts that were boring and I couldn't pay attention or wanted to fast forward. The second part of the book moved along better.
He did the main character great. His female voice was weak. He did very good as a narrator with the story.
It was on sale. I might try to listen to it at a later date. I doubt I will buy the book 2 in the series.
I am intrigued by Harry. He detests the bureaucratic dung heap under which he works but excels in his job despite them. So familiar.
I would recommend this to anyone who considers, or is working in, a similar environment.
The narration was good. Even the pacing was on time.
Tough as nails protagonist, Bosch, narrated by the fantastic Dick Hill. Set in a 70-80s time frame underlined by the stark absence of the forensics and spy tech prevalent in recent entertainment media. Enjoyable listen with some expected/anticipated twists and turns--insights and tie ins to Bosch's early life as a tunnel Rat in 'Nam.
tryin' to keep reviews short and relevant.
I enjoy a book that you can't determine the "who did it" half way through. This is one of those books. I was surprised and I like being surprised.
Yes, but warily. Dick Hill has an excellent voice and he does well with a variety of men's voices and accents. But when it comes to women it is painful. The voice of the main female character in this book is pretty wimpy and delicate, even if her character is supposed to be strong and tough. I think he would have been better off reading her in a male voice.
At points yes. It's a good story and Dick Hill has good build up.
seasoned reader, or male voices and knows how to build momentum into the story.
I don't want to read the bestsellers. I want to read the best written.
The author had a very good reputation after some fifteen or twenty years so I thought I would sample it by starting at the beginning. It wasn't bad, just not very surprising. The narrator Hill also did a decent job though I didn't care for his "voice" of the main female character. Based on reviews of later books, I will probably continue with the series but it hasn't risen to a priority for me.
