This is an excellent book. The plot is engaging, and I was surprised by some of its twists and turns. The characters are complex and diverse enough to provoke some thought and empathy.
Dick Hill is an excellent narrator, able to produce a variety of distinct, realistic and easy-on-the-ears voices. His pacing and expressiveness are impeccable.
Bearing in mind that the book is set in the early 1990's and some younger readers may have to use their imaginations to envision a time where people were sill using phone booths and using magnetic tape for audio recordings, I highly recommend this book. First-rate entertainment.
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
Michael Connelly is a fantastic writer. His Lincoln Lawyer series is one of my favorites, so I decided to venture into another series. What a great start! If the rest of this series is as great as The Black Echo, I am in for a real treat. The Harry Bosch character is interesting, believable, well-crafted, and so interesting! The supporting characters, and the plot line were very entertaining, and the story led me through the book quickly. Just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting AND believable.
Dick Hill is such a great narrator, as well. I have loved nearly every book I've heard that he has read. Overall, just a really good experience, and I can't wait to get to the next book!
I usually don't go in for crime mysteries too much, but Audible was having a sale so what the heck. I was not disappointed. The story is about a smart street detective and a case he works with the FBI. This detective has a past which is revealed throughout the book and it is him against the world at times. It was fast paced and I enjoyed it a great deal. Dick Hill did the narration which is also a huge plus.
I liked the Bosch character who is cocky and intelligent. The storyline had enough twists that I couldn't figure out who was guilty.
Obviously Harry Bosch since the story centers around him.
Harry Bosch. I felt the female characters left a bit to be desired but I always prefer two narrators.
I did find myself listening to it while I did housework which I don't normally do.
The story takes place prior to the use of cell phones so it does take a little getting used to the detectives having to use pay phones. Us older folks remember what they are.
Love to get a book that I can't stop reading. I love page turners
Easy to listen and keeps you wanting more. MC rings you in early on in story. No wonder there are so many books in this series
The story was okay, not much new or twisty. The characters and development were okay.
There were parts that were boring and I couldn't pay attention or wanted to fast forward. The second part of the book moved along better.
He did the main character great. His female voice was weak. He did very good as a narrator with the story.
It was on sale. I might try to listen to it at a later date. I doubt I will buy the book 2 in the series.
I am intrigued by Harry. He detests the bureaucratic dung heap under which he works but excels in his job despite them. So familiar.
I would recommend this to anyone who considers, or is working in, a similar environment.
The narration was good. Even the pacing was on time.
