    A Signature Performance: Four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce delivers an air of lovable self-importance in his rendition of the classic social satire that remains as fresh today as the day it was published.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was drawn to this because of David Hyde Peirce's voice. He was the only good thing about this book. The initial part of the story was pretty cool. You would never see a movie or series actually based on the entire story. The author's narrative becomes soooooo boring. The story gets weirder and darker. Had I downloaded the entire book for free --- I still would not have rated it better than a ONE star.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something narrated byTim Pigott-Smith


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None. I hope David Hyde Pierce gives his royalties to a charity.

    Where does The Red Pyramid rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't usually listen to this type of book, but it was quite enjoyable.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Both were great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Too much going on al the time...needed to take breaks to appreciate it.


    Any additional comments?

    Kind of tough to keep up with all the characters they were interacting with (names, jargon, etc), but it didnt stop me from getting through the book. This isn't my usual genre, so I am not sure I will want to go past this Book One of the series, but on its own, still worth it!

    Jack Reacher. The ultimate loner. An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he's moved from place to place...without family...without possessions...without commitments.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure I would recommend this. With a warning that it is really, really violent. But what a great woven story! Lots of ellements to it. You will like the character so much with the narrator's voice.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    AWEsome as usual.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not going to see the first Jack Reacher movie that is now out... after listening to the character played/narrated by Dick Hill, I just can't imagine enjoying the movie having Jack Reacher played by "T.C."

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "What a Terrific Book"
    "This is my first Michael Connelly book!"

    What did you love best about The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1?

    Story, main character and Narrator, all great!


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I found this book by searching for more narrations by Dick Hill. What a great talent!


    Any additional comments?

    If you've never read/listened to Michael Connelly's work, or the genre of a guy like Harry Bosch, this is a great way to start. The Narrator's work is super!

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    What did you love best about Killing Floor?

    I decided to try Lee Child because I have really liked the Narrator's work. Glad I bought the book ! The story really keeps you wanting to listen.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dick Hill again is amazing!


    Any additional comments?

    You won't be dissappointed. Pretty violent in places, but you can get past it with the way the story evolves, and again, the narration is brilliant.
