    Story
    "Brilliantly constructed book, very well read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Overlook to be better than the print version?

    Not necessarily better. It doesn't matter. The reading is strong enough to convey a great story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot is magnificently paced, and goes to the heart of its big themes.


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

    I don't recall hearing other Brandon performances. This one is well judged and doesn't draw too much attention to itself. In short, a good professional job.


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

    I'm too busy to read anything at one sitting, but this recording helps the listener keep the thread of the story in mind.


    Any additional comments?

    This fine recording is billed as "abridged", but I don't think it is. If anything is missing, it's not very much.

    Story
    "Excellent page turner LA detective thriller"

    Another excellent Michael Connolly page turner, featuring irascible, uncompromising, defiant, streetwise, journeyman, LA murder detective Harry Bosch. Connolly’s series of books are steeped in American sensibilities of right and wrong being a black and white situation and Bosch is always single minded in his goal to solve the case and get the bad guys. As usual, the plot is complex and well-crafted and there is plenty of tensions and potential jeopardy between key characters. Bosch’s bold and brave character is deep enough to be credible, as are others who make up the key individuals in the story. And there is a comfortable feeling that you are being taken on a journey by an expert in the American cop thriller genre, which is indeed the case. If you like well plotted, cop thrillers with page-turner popular prose then you should like this book.
