I would only recommend this book for a light summer read or in a pinch. Story was adequate. The author repeats or expands upon basic details to such lengths that I almost quit the book a few times but didn't have anything else lined up in the queue to listen.
The narrator read the book like a movie trailer which was very distracting from the story and nauseating at times.
Not really worth the time listening too.
This is a great read....almost as good as a James Patterson novel....he is...in my opinion...the best!!!
This story kept you on the edge as you never knew who was lurching in the shadows.
This was the first listen to Peter Giles and it did not disappoint!
I live in Dundee, Oregon, wine country and the most beautiful place on earth...I love detective stories and just discovered John Sandford and his Prey series. Love him! I also love Rosamond Pilcher, anything read by Joe Mantagna or Bobby Cavale. Love Audiobooks more than almost anything!
I don't know, i only had the audio
Yes, lots of twists and turns, but Haller is annoying character, not up to Connelly's standards
I love Michael Connelly, but I don't like Mickey Haller. He is smug and unappealing.
I have enjoyed Mickey Haller and I think Lincoln Lawyer was excellent. I am not so so keen on Fifth Witness. I think Michael Connelly was trying to capitalize on the release of the Lincoln Lawyer movie and make some kind of commentary of the current economic situation. I read that the inspiration for Haller's move to foreclosure defense was a friend of Connelly's who was having to do this for the same reasons Mickey lays out. I am also not a fan of how this story ends. I don't buy into Mickey going for the whole good vs evil, prosecutor vs defense argument that his ex and others have thrown at him. I had admired that he felt he had a purpose and recognized that most of his clients were sleaze. A good listen, just not Connelly's best.
Emphasis on important parts of the story to bring clarification of the role of each charactor.
The ending left you feeling there is going to be another book to continue the story.
This was my first "lawyer" book - normally I read the detective novels. Other than getting bored with too much courtroom dialog (guess I am used to a lot more action in my books), I enjoyed the story and Mickey Haller. Peter Giles adds character to all the characters, which is very important in my selection of audio books.
Peter Giles is an excellent narrator!! What a good book! Peter really brought me into the story and allowed me to connect with the characters.
This book actually turned out much better than I thought it would be. To be up front, I was on the fence with the narrator. Even in listening to the sample I thought his voice would grate on me and I would not be able to make through the whole book. I was wrong. Well, I wasn't wrong about the narrator (not the greatest in my opinion), but the story kept it going for me. I really didn't realize this was going to be such a good courtroom thriller, and the author did a very good job building the suspense through out.
I also thought the main character arc was thoughtful and believing. The subplots all tied in nicely. And the author's use of setting and description was well done.
Good book - highly recommended.
A man. A plan. A canal. Panama
Great ending and an engaging story. I can't wait for the next Mickey Haller novel!
