    Story
    (390)

    The messages waiting for Henry Pierce when he plugs in his new phone clearly aren't intended for him. They indicate something has gone terribly wrong for a woman named Lilly. Pierce probes, investigates, and then tumbles through a hole, leaving behind a life driven by work to track down and help a woman he's never met. Connelly's latest is "a grabber from the beginning...utterly compelling."

    David says: "Nobody Could Be That Stupid That Many Times!"
    "Totally Unbelieveable"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed all of the Michael Connelly books I have read or listened to in the past; this one was a great disappointment. Pierce's total lack of judgement and very rash approach to the problem isn't consistent with the logical mind of an accomplished scientist. I found myself getting angry and could not finish.

    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

    Would you listen to Killing Jesus again? Why?

    I was very impressed with what I learned. The information that is not available in the usual accounts of the time was almost overwhelming. I was totally engrossed. I am not certain that I absorbed it in its entirety.


    What other book might you compare Killing Jesus to and why?

    I don't have any other book to compare it to. I is my first trip into the genre.


    What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

    History doesn't lend itself to dramatic delivery. Bill's managed to bring me into the story and held me there.


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

    Yes, however there was too much for me to take in one bite.


    Any additional comments?

    Not at this time.
