The story was dull; it would have made a better short story. There was little suspense or action, unless you count the bedroom scenes. This was my first Stone Barrington novel and the author did little to help a newcomer grasp the character, it felt like I came into the movie theater late. Also, I still can't tell who the main character was, Stone, Holly, or the bad guys.
At first it was difficult telling the characters a part, the narrator did a poor job of distinguishing them, it's a good thing characters names were use often.
I do not recommend this book.
I'm not moved to buy another book by Stephen White, this is his first book in the series and since there are 19 more books, I'm going to assume some body liked them. I like Dick Hill but I don't think this was is best performance; yes I would try another book.
I bought this book which is book 1 in the series, and the 2nd book at the same time, at some point I'll listen to the 2nd book, but if it doesn't improve I want listen to anything else.
He's done better
All of them.
Psychologist Alan Gregory is the dumbest educated character I've come across. I figured out what was happening way ahead of him.
Maybe, but I'm not usually driven to listen to a past read. I am going to complete the trilogy.
No it wasn't, but I did make it a priority.
I loved the journey of Kent Anthony's growth but it was his Mother-In-law's faith that moved me the most.
Suspect pulled me in immediately, I listened to a free chapter and had to buy it. I loved the relationship between Scott and Maggie (a dog) and how they needed each other so much.
No, this is the first one.
I would spend a little less time reintroducing the characters in this series
I've listened to books by other authors that were also narrated by Dick Hill and think he has excellent range, I can always distinguish his characters without any problems.
Yes, this is what I call a popcorn movie.
The story was too unbelievable, and too long.
Amusement, I laughed at places that wasn't intended to be funny.
The ending; it felt incomplete and had unanswered questions. The epilogue which is intended to detail the fate of character was used instead as a tease to what's going to happen next. I prefer conclusions to my books when it involves the main character and was part of the main plot.
Also, the subplot about the main character's ward did nothing for the story except side track it, I was interested in the ward but it went no where, it had no real point to the story or none that I could see.
This is my second Lincoln Child book and have no intension of buying another.
I liked the characters, and the story until it got too unbelievable; the last chapter gave me a headache trying to understand who was who and what each characters did or didn't do. It was unnecessarily convoluted.
This was my first Griffen book and I plan to give him another try. I think the main character (Charley) needs a little more work, sometimes he seem seasoned and other times I thought he was 22 years old.
Dick Hill's always give a 4 star performance.
Good solid novel which is what I've come to expect from Michael Connelly. It wasn't the most exciting of the Bosch novels I've read so far but it's definitley worth your time and money.
