Gotta tell you, this was more like listening to a disertation of the history of the cocaine trade than anything else. No real character development. Quite honestly, I got bored very quickly and didn't even finish the book.
The only thing disappointing about this book was that it was so short. (6 hrs vs. the normal 12-13 hrs). Even with the shorter length, Connelly still is able to develop a great story and we continue to see the interal struggles of Harry Bosch along with his knack of solving the unsolveable.
I can't wait for the next installment.
I was expecting a book loaded with tips and tricks on Investment techniques and Wealth Management options. I got a series of pep talks from speakers telling me how "You Can Do It."
Self improvement and motivation was not what I was looking for.
The first half of this book was very difficult to listen to. The author appears to paint a picture of the future whereby humans are unable to communicate without the use of massive amount of profanity laden speech. I'm not opposed to the use of profanity, but I found myself counting the uses of the words in one short segment and gave up after hitting 50 in less than 5 minutes. Entirely unnecessary!
The book finally picks up in the second half. Save yourself some time and skip straight to part II.
What a disappointment. After the cliff-hanging end to Voyagers I, I actually expected something action-related to happen. This ended up as more of a "personal discovery" / "relationship development" book that was loosely wrapped around a science fiction concept.
