Having read and enjoyed the Harry Bosch series years ago I was wary about whether or not the audible experience would live up to my expectations. Refreshing my memory re the plot was to be expected and while there were no surprises I did pick up nuances missed from my original reading. The narration was excellent and I was able to lose myself in the world of Hollywood Homicide and the characters very easily. I will go onto the next Harry Bosch eagerly.
I can't decide which is best between the narration or the story but together they are the best audible series I have listened to. My only problem now is after dragging this "listen" out over 2 days I can't wait for the next one! Fabulous stories that suck you in to the world of Danny and Ceepak, mysteries are resolved (not always a soft ending, unusual but real!) and the character development is always progressing.
Satisfying, quality, enjoyable
This release was a bonus, my husband and I thought we were at the end of the Reacher series, SO GLAD...this was one of the best!
It took a while to get past the echoes in the recording, next time I will probably pay more for the other audible options, but once past that it was a competent enough telling of a well known story.
I will try other book from Agatha Christie, having read hard copies of all of the stories I will enjoy listening to another interpretation.
Perhaps more inflection for Poirot would have made him more enjoyable.
I've seen the tele series of many Christie stories, not many of them get it right. Can't beat Ustinov for Poirot.
interesting, engrossing, satisfying,
narration and storyline
the flashbacks to the hospice
A man finding his way and more....
It may have had a slow start but gathered momentum along the way for a very satisfying read (listen)
Sadly I am an avid fan of these novels and have read the hard copies numerous times. I was wary about trying an audible experience knowing that I would be very hard to please and luckily purchased this one on sale as I just could not listen past the first half hour. I know the story well, so was not looking for any surprises but for me the narration killed it.
Least interesting was the narration.
Perhaps from another author that I am not so familiar with.
I am eager to find other stories to listen to that I will enjoy as well as I have the hard copies of the Evanovich books.
