The story was too far fetched to be believed, even in a city full of the totally absurd. The DC police department is NOT the DCPD it's MPD...stupid, yes, but factual! And J.Pauls is in Georgetown, NOT Foggy Bottom.
These small details lost it for me. I stopped believing the characters and the story was just too silly and forced.
The narrator was great though.
David Baldacci's "Simple Truth"
Bringing Stone and Dino's children into the story. Served no purpose.
The story was well paced and kept me interested. I did have to overcome the authors not-so-subtle political and religious views. It was an ok enough story. Not the best, not nearly as good as "The Road."
Didn't have a favorite.
It was an ok story. I think it can be rewritten without the political commentary and still have a good affect on the overall tale.
I just finished "The Black Box" and I kept holding out for a twist or gotcha moment that never came. It was predictable and Bosch just seemed to weak. Perhaps fatherhood caused this transformation but I for one am not a fan.
I still love old Harry Bosch stories so perhaps catching up on those might cure me.
No. I was not impressed with Mr. McConnohie's range. Bring back Scott Brick and you have me back.
The brother and former boss.
Is that a word? Godawful? The reader sounds like the "lisa" voice on my computer. The story is pretentious and the couple bickers all the time. The worst book I've ever heard! I will never get the hour and forty-five minutes I spent reading it back.
