The story was just OK for me, a real stretch in places. If you are a fan of Connelly's Harry Bosch character, I am sure you will enjoy this book. It definitely had a couple of good plot twists. But Len Cariou is just awful as Bosch. At times, actually most of the time he narrates as if the listener is a complete idiot. His attempt at female voices was so bad I actually skipped over that section so I wouldn't have to listen to it.
How could the previous reviewer possibly state "wonderful, enjoyable, heart warming- a must!" I barely got through half of this book.
I completely agree with the previous review by Thomas. This book is so plodding, it will absolutely put you to sleep. By the half way point, I had to quit. Please do not waste your time or money on this book.
I found the first few hours of this book very interesting, but it got bogged down very fast. The author is constantly re-telling the story through various characters, by the fourth time you have heard the same plot points you to want to throw something at the car radio.
I did like the use of multiple narrators, it was the only thing that made listening to this book bearable. The biggest problem is the author clearly does not understand the concept of a story arc, instead it's a flat line from beginning to end. Please do not waste twenty hours listening to this dribble and don't even get me started on the ending.
A previous reviewer wrote " If you like Dan Brown, you will like this book". I like Dan Brown but this book is a near complete waste of time. Is Brown writing a mystery or giving a lecture? I thought this book was never going to end. Of course as another reviewer said, he will probably make a fortune on the screen play. This may be a challenge for Ron Howard, not sure he has ever made a movie based on a lecture before.
