I finish things, thats just the way I am, but there is no pleasure in the thought of finishing this book. I am 70% though it and struggle with the depressing insights into the lives of the characters in this story. Well written? Perhaps. Imaginative?...Definitely. Entertaining. hmmmm, too hard to say yes.
I will still finish it. Perhaps a good ending my cause me to revise this. We shall see.
Definitely not for mystery readers, unless that is you have a penchant for clothes and make-up. A chick book all of the way. Unbearable.
I wanted to like this novel, and although the narration is excellent, i committed the ultimate sin, and closed the book, prior to finishing it. The author's struggle with his belief system just wore me out. I tired of the love hate relationship with God, Lover, and Self. Again, and again the reader subjected to the melodrama of conflicted beliefs. One might say that the dark side of the text, what was between the lines railed against my own beliefs, and that after awhile, i just had enough.....perhaps.
This audiobook was a disappointment.
New Your TImes state that if you liked "In the Name of the Rose," go out and by "Instance of the Fingerpost." If you liked instance, you will surely enjoy this novel. Well crafted, with so many points of detail that come together in the end.
The narrators were wonderful, adding just the correct tone to the character.
Well done Mr. Pears!
I thought that this would be funny.
In the end i cannot think of anybody that i can think of that i could sit in a room with, and not feel embarrassed and apologetic while this played.
A definite pass....even for a freebee
This formula script was less than entertaining, almost burdensome. None of the Bosch I expected was there. Clearly the authors heart was not in it or he is no longer inspired. Alas, I spent the time for a book with no ending.
I guess i am done with M. Connelly.
