A wanted read
Yes, always something happening, some good twists and turns.
Reacher books are good, but I think Lee is getting carried away with the scene and history descriptions that sometimes appear to go on with no actual relevance to the rest of the story. Sounds a little picky i know, but the first books in the series weren't as bad as they are now. Not bad, but you know what I mean.... :-)
Somebody who is deaf would probably enjoy listening to this. Then again I am sure they would be happy to hear anything.
Have somebody else write it with different plot and certainly a different narrator too.
I couldn't bare listening to her whining on any more. Fingernails down a chalk board would be easier to listen to.
All characters should be removed.
Ok, so this one just wasn't for me. Wouldn't mind a refund but have a feeling that feature is now missing from the website. Nice one am Amazon, look at how much I spend with you.
I will sum up this book as... Well I can't really post what I want to say here. But compared to my massive library of audible books, this is certainly the worst so far.
This is one of the best audio books I have listened to so far. Very long, but gripping the entire time.
Harvey Torretti, really liked his casual style and could just imagine guys really being like him following the war. He was a no nonsense character that always came through.
Yes, I have. And he is really good. Often when I find a good narrator I will listen to other books they have narrated. 9 times out of 10 I find another winning series of books to listen to.
This would only spoil the novel for anybody listening to it. So no comment, but there is one part which is very sad.
Great book. You have to listen this one. I believe this should fit in the category of books that are a must read. I have since ordered the DVD mini series based on this novel.
I loved the fact that the story is narrated from the human and dog perspective. Great having to narrators. The dog had such a great personality and seemed very real to understand his thoughts.
Chance, the dog. I love dogs and understood his explanation of how he interpreted things.
I think the narrators names are confusing. Pretty sure both narrators where guys. But either way, they were both great.
Ok, i'll admit it. I got totally emotionally hoked on this one. The author did an amazing job of taking you on a journey that was full of highs and lows. I'm not afraid to admit as a grown man and truck driver, this did bring a tear to my eye. The message within the book is something everybody could learn from. It shows humanity at its worst and its best. A true book for dog lovers no matter who you are.
I guarantee, that if you listen to this, you will not be disappointed. Once I started listening to this I literally could not stop.
Too slow to get going. Narrator was useless, hard to tell who was who. Never finished the book just couldn't get into it. I think after having listened to Michael Connelly's and Lee Child's books I now have high expectations of other authors. Really tried to get into this, but started to fall asleep. Far to slow. I wish Michael Connelly had more I could listen too but have got them all already.
Anything but James Patterson.
Narrator could have used a better variation of voices. Seemed a bit mono tone for me.
Alex Cross. Get rid of him. Boring.
Annoyed. I was hoping this author would have given me another series to get into. But alas, too slow for me. shame,.
The fact that Micky works as a prosecutor for a change. Good to see him working for the good guys.
Micky closely followed by Bosch. Good to see both my favorite characters in the same book.
Great narration, good diversity of voices etc.
Not really. I am a bloke, we don't get moved by stories. Not these types anyway. Its not a love story after all.
Keep em' coming Connolly.
Having read/listened to all the Bosch books, this is by far the best story so far. I really liked how Michael Connelly has created a story from the past and brought it into the future. Similar to a couple of others since bosch has been in the open unsolved unit. But this story had me hooked from start to finish. Great story that comes together very nicely. Connelly is a genius the way he puts all this together. From Bosch starting with one small clue that leads him on a journey to find the truth.
As always, Harry Bosch.
Absolutely. Was hard to stop this when I had to. But got through it in two days.
Please keep them coming Michael. I am at a loss without my fix of Bosch's determination and skill for finding justice.
No, but only because I don't like to read or listen to the same book twice no matter how good it is. This was excellent too.
Micky. Great character, could imagine just how he would be in real life. The movie portrayed this character very well also. Just as I would have imagined. In fact all characters in the book were well cast for the movie.
Again, Micky. I think it is hard to not have the main character as your favorite. But the voice he used for Micky was spot on.
Yes. I drive trucks and only like to listen while driving. But found myself still listening after I had parked up for the night in the sleeper cab.
After listening to this book I rented the movie. The book is so much better, the movie was good but slightly disappointing after listening to the book. Still, both were great. If you have seen the movie but not listened to the book, I highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed. The book contains so much more detail.
A few good twists that kept me thinking.
Yes, there was always something exciting happening. The story was never dull, not for a moment.
No i hadn't, but he did an excellent job. The different voices and emotions made the story very easy to follow as to who was saying what. This makes a world of difference compare to some performers who appear to have the same voice for all characters.
Great story by an excellent author. I am hooked on Michael Connelys books and have just about got through them all. The entire Bosch series and Micky Hauler. A few left to go, then need to find more similar authors.
it's up there with the best. i am hooked on Michael Connelly's Bosch series.
I compare much of Connelly's Bosch series of books to Lee Child's Jack Reacher books. Great characters and the books are to the point, fast paced gripping with great twists.
Yes i have, he is a great narrator. amazing at acting out different voices and emotions of the scenes.
No, i am not reading that type of book. this isn't exactly mills and boon.
Can't get enough of the Bosch series. i am so worried as am coming to the end of getting through them all. What next, i like Lee Child's books and Michael Connelly's books. need to find something similar.
No I haven't, but he did ok with this book.
The rainbow coloured horse that Jesus apparently owns.
Felt this to be a kid with huge imagine just like I had when I was a kid. The parents don't seem to understand how influential kids are and that they pick up on every little thing that they see and hear. To me this sounds like a kid who picked up alot from being in church with his parents around the home etc. Having been a kid myself, I had an imagine just like this. So not really convinced. If the family wasn't Christian I might consider it, but as soon as I heard the father/writer was a pastor, I knew then to take this book with a grain of salt.
