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.
Harry Bosch is a bad mutha. The action starts from the beginning. The narration is great bring the many characters to life. Had to circle the block many times to keep listening on the way home.
Only buy this book if you want to get hooked! There are a bunch in the book series and almost all are good. Made into an Amazon Original TV series, now.
