Angels Flight: A Harry Bosch Novel | [Michael Connelly]

Angels Flight: A Harry Bosch Novel

An activist attorney is killed in a cute little L.A. trolley called Angels Flight, far from Harry Bosch's Hollywood turf. But the case is so explosive - and the dead man's enemies inside the L.A.P.D. are so numerous - that it falls to Harry to solve it. Now the streets are superheating. Harry's year-old Vegas marriage is unraveling. And the hunt for a killer is leading Harry to another high-profile L.A. murder case, one where every cop had a motive. The question is, did any have the guts?

    "Where is Dick Hill????????????"

    I really couldn't get into this book due to the narration. Mix a little William Shattner, Rod Serling & that "Movie Trailer Guy" and this is what you get. Dick Hill set the bar for this series, anything less simply wont cut it!!!!!!!!!!

    "Solid book despite marginal narration."

    Loved the story. Plot was solid and pace was great. The narrator, though, sounded like Clint Eastwood in a Dirty Harry role. Distracting at first then but seems not to be as bad toward the end of the book. Connelly has not disappointed me once. Great writing always wins out over marginal narration. Highly recommend.

    "Narrator distracts listener"
    What did you love best about Angels Flight?

    I don't want to spoil the book for others, but I love that Connelly wasn't afraid to write on the topic he chose. Unfortunately, this happens everywhere, everyday to innocent children.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Giles’s performances?

    I really did not like Peter Giles performance. I almost turned off the book immediately, however I was interested in the written words, so I continued to listen. If I had a choice, Dick Hill should narrate all Connelly books. As the plot thickens, you will find yourself not concentrating so much on Giles's performance. Would I listen to another...if he is the only Connelly narrator, then I suppose I will have to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Frankie's admission to Bosch about the mistreatment of Harris of what took place in the interrogation room.

    "Good story with depth"

    The narrator almost ruined the book for me but once I got to the second part, the story took over and I heard him much less and fully entered the reality of the novel. I hadn't read Connelly in awhile. This book (IMHO) is one of his best. it's very current - from racial tensions in urban American cities (I write this as Ferguson Missouri is still a tinderbox), to family dynamics, politics, police department dynamics. I can't say too much without disclosing the story line that deserves to unfold as Connelly intended, but I recommend this book. Just don't let the narrator's stentorian tones and "intensity" discourage you. Forge on - eventually you'll be able to ignore him. It's not a happy book but it's real and substantive..

    "Awesome Story - horrible narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Angels Flight the most enjoyable?

    As always, the Harry Bosch Series is amazing. Great detective novels.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Giles’s performances?

    Absolutely not, unless there's no other option for a narrator for a book I want to listen to. He sounds like a surfer dude in most of it and is just such a change from Dick Hill. Most of his characters sound the same.

    "Good story with uninspiring ending"
    If you could sum up Angels Flight in three words, what would they be?

    A post Rodney King story that combines racial tensions, cold cases and an interesting detective plot. The last part of the book was a bit of a disappointment and in particular the ending was too dramatic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot and story development was very good.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Giles – was your favorite?

    Bosh


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Non

    "Worst Performance I have ever Listened to"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    All of the Bosch books I have read so far are very good, but the narrarator makes this one not worth listening to. Listening to the voice of the narrarator is chore, and very dissapointing. This recording should be replaced, there is no doubt about it.

    "Narrator should do Saturday morning hero cartoons!"

    The story is okay, but the narrator is not a good fit. I listened to the whole thing, but never got used to his take on the characters.

    "Well done"

    I am writing this because of all the negative reviews regarding the narrator. Maybe some people just don't like change but I thought the reading of this book was superb! The story is great and well worth the listen.
