  • Trunk Music: Harry Bosch Series, Book 5

    Back on the job after an involuntary leave of absence, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch is ready for a challenge. But his first case is a little more than he bargained for. It starts with the body of a Hollywood producer in the trunk of a Rolls-Royce, shot twice in the head at close range - what looks like "trunk music", a Mafia hit.

    Dan says: "Another Harry Bosch winner"
    "Not the best Harry Bosch but it was good."

    This was a good listen but at times it became predictable and boring. Overall, I liked it.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    I liked it. It is diabolically good. I also like the writing style. The narrators were excellent. The ending was a surprise too. I had to wake up at 6:00am but I could not put it down until I finished listening to it around 1:30am then thought about it for another 30 minutes before fell a sleep :) I'd recommend this book.

    George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words! This must-read is also a must-listen!

  • The Reversal: Harry Bosch, Book 16 (Mickey Haller, Book 3)

    Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change stripes and prosecute the high-profile retrial of a brutal child murder. After 24 years in prison, convicted killer Jason Jessup has been exonerated by new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch.

    Andrew Pollack says: "Brilliantly executed"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I was disappointed. I found myself not wanting to continue. I think it was because I listened to this right after I finished listening to John Grisham's "The Confession". However, I like the other Harry Bosch titles by Connelly.

  • Gone Tomorrow: A Jack Reacher Novel

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    chigars4 says: "Best work yet!"
    "Very Slow"
    Overall

    The reader will put you to sleep. This book didn't do for me. It is boring and the reader is just terrible. Don't buy this. I could not finish the first part.

    Michael Havel was flying over Idaho en route to the holiday home of his passengers when the plane's engines inexplicably died, forcing a less than perfect landing in the wilderness. And, as Michael leads his charges to safety, he begins to realize that the engine failure was not an isolated incident.

    "Why Did I Buy This Audiobook?"
    Overall

    Booorrriing. To many useless details and it goes on and on and on without any substance. The useless accent of the character drove me nuts. I could not listen past 3rd chapter. I want my money back.

    The New York Museum of Natural History receives their pilfered gem collection back, ground down to dust. Diogenes, the psychotic killer who stole them in Dance of Death, is throwing down the gauntlet to both the city and to his brother, FBI Agent Pendergast, who is currently incarcerated in a maximum security prison.

    V.A. says: "Not bad"
    "Blatant pitch for Mac"
    Overall

    This is not like the previous works. This is boring and comes across as a blatant advertisement for Mac and corporations. Boorrring.

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Elisabeth says: "Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction"
    "Patronizing"
    Overall

    I couldn’t help but feel that I was being talked down. Although it is true and works, one would be better off reading “The Power of Now”. No magic here, but you can't help but get a wrong impression from the way she delivers it. As many others said, there is not much new in here. You read and hope that something will click or shift your consciousness. That’s it.

    Glenn says: "Good Stuff"
    "From someone who loves London"
    Overall

    For someone who thoroughly enjoys Jack London, I did not, whatsoever, enjoy this audio book. The narator ruined it completely by speedreading it. He does not give you enough time to take it in and form the characters.
