I love Harry Bosch because, although he antagonizes almost everyone around him, he is honest, principled, and good at what he does. Michael Connelly keeps your interest, and there are always twists and turns. Just when you think you know, you find out you're wrong.
And Dick Hill is one of my favorite narrators. One thing that I really love is how he does female voices. Instead of going to a higher pitch like some readers do, which annoys me like nails on a chalkboard, he slightly softens his voice. It takes a lot of talent to be able to change tone for each character so that they all remain recognizable individuals.
Michael Connelly is a great writer, and I recommend any of his books. But he has me hooked on Harry right now. I read a couple of the Bosch series out of order, then decided to go back and start with the first one and listen to them all in order. Either way, you don't feel lost if you start in the middle, or near the end, because Connelly weaves Harry's background into the current story. I just wish there were more, but I'll read anything he comes out with.
No - I don't listen to books twice - I already knows whats going to happen.
The plot twists and surprises.
Some of the descriptions of torture and murder can be a bit disturbing.
Dick Hill is fantastic
No. I almost quit listening in the middle of it. I finiished just because I decided I'd better find out how it ended.
This is the 2nd one I have listened to, and it will probably be the last.
Not for me, although the ending wasn't great.
Another fantastic story by Connelly and performance by Hill. I gave it lower marks for a couple reasons; I figured it out myself too soon and, in my opinion, Harry goes too far off the reservation at the end. But all together a great addition to the franchise.
I need some C8H10N4O2
The second installment of the Harry Bosch series is just amazing. It is so different to the first one, but just as entertaining.
When you think you know Connelly he comes at you from another side and completely blindsides you. This is one of his best.
I read a few of the later books and loved them. I have restarted every book from the beginning.
The Black Ice was very good. Connely has a nice suttle view of plot and flow of characters. I know I will enjoy all of he future books.
This book is very believable and keeps you interested all the way thru. The characters seem lifelike and make you feel that you are part of the action.
The book is very much like it's beginning, mind blowing!! Beware of Michael Connelly's twists and turns. You will not guess the twists ahead of time. I must say I ended up bitting my nails off. I for one, can't get enough of Harry Bosch.
