Although I will listen to this book I have no sudden rush to get to it. Knowing that the narrator is new to this series really puts a damper on it. When are these guys realize that the narrator is such a big part of the books.
We come to love Dick Hill, the 1st narrator for the Bosch series. He was so perfect for the character. We lost Dick Hill and here comes Len Cariou. He grew on me very fast and I really enjoyed how he brought Bosch out.
I was getting so excited a few weeks before The Burning Room was released. I had pre-purchased the book, downloaded it on the 3rd and was all ready. Oh my word where is Len Cariou?
Sad to report this is the first Michael Connelly book I cannot finish. I stopped at chapter 25 and can't go on.
Sad, very sad.
As expected the latest Bosche story is riveting from start to finish. There was never a section during the book in which in got long winded or stretched out. It is simply amazing how he makes you feel like you are part of the story. I will be the first to admit that I have been missing Dick Hill for awhile. However, my wife and I have really started to get into Len Cariou. He is really doing these books very well. I can actually tell when he kicks it up a notch in the suspense. The only bad part about this book is that I finished it too soon. Now I am out of books from my favorite author. I have listened to all of his books in 2 months. Please hurry up Connelly on the next one, I know it will be a special book for you in the celebration of your 25th book.
