I enjoyed the box set with the exception of the music playing during part 5. The music would play inbetween chapters - that part was fine. What wasn't good, is that in the beginning or ending of each chapter, the music would play, and it was difficult to hear what was being said. I found that to be annoying as I wanted to hear what was being said and the music played too long during the talking in the beginning and ending of each chapter.
If you are listening to the Harry Bosch books in order, there is a book, The Closers, between The Narrows and Echo Park that is not included. However, Michael Connelly does a good job of filling in necessary information in his books in case you don't listen in order.
I gave four stars based on the third book.
THE NARROWS - This is a book that involves a search for a serial killer. Michael Connelly does a great job of bringing two story lines together.
ECHO PARK - A very good story about a cold case that Bosch never gave up on.
THE OVERLOOK - This started out as a good story line, but I was disappointed with the ending. This is definitely not his best book.
It's been awhile since I listened to this set but from what I recall two of the stories held my attention while a third I was not able to get through.
Yes. To refresh my memory on various development in the character's life.
Three separate but connect stories gives insight to not only Bosch but to other reoccurring characters.
Effective use of silence and pace.
Previous to this three story set I had only listened (read) the first Bosch book (The Black Echo) and I wanted to learn more about Bosch. The box set was a great way to come to a fuller understanding of the Bosch the man and professional.
Harry Bosch Box Set is pretty good compared to other books I've listened to. I enjoyed The Overlook the best. It's the most believable and realistic of the three, dealing with a
Fun, Edgy, Harry is full of himself, but walks the walk
Yes, has a few twists
The Poets going down
Connelly has done it again with this boxed set. Great read or should I say listen.
Harry Bosch, of course.
I've read all the Micheal Connelly books, now starting on the audios.
A real treat to get an audio with THREE of his best.
In my opinion, can't go wrong with the Harry Bosch series.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Off for a long plane or car ride? Trucking down the highway? This series ROCKS! It was my introduction to Harry Bosch. I'm going to pack him into my bag whenever I travel. Beats Xanex for timid flyers, and uppers for sleepy-eyed drivers. Connelly-as-craftsman is WUNNERFUL throughout. And Len Cariou's got every dark corner of this hard-boiled-dick down tighter than a skid-row drunk on a bender.
I enjoyed this set tremendously, however, out of the three I thought "The Narrows" was the best..All 3 have good winding plots and we get a small look into Harry's childhood. All of the books move at a good pace and just when I thought I knew where they were going...BINGO... they took a sharp left turn. The narration was very well done. Worth the money.
