The Poet was enjoyable for the first 3/4 of the book but then implausible plot twists take over. I thought Connelly (my first read by him) did a good job at character development. The main character was likably flawed.
However with the bases loaded Connelly did not bring the story home. I was definitely hooked and too far in not to finish but I was becoming suspicious if I had wasted my time around the last 1/4 of the book. The ending was just not as good as I would have liked, a bit odd.
The technology is outdated, which does not bother me since it reminds us about when payphones, pagers and fax machines were cutting edge.
The narrator is not a bad narrator but he sounded like a 50+ year old man when the main character is supposed to be 35, not a good fit for the story.
I purchased this on sale and I would recommend doing that. Its not a waste of time by any means I just hate a weak ending to a good story.
