Hooked on Harry

Would you listen to The Harry Starke Series: Books 4-6 again? Why?

Probably, I will certainly listen to more in the series. just downloaded the 7 - 9 books.

The formula works! While the plots vary all over the map (and all are clever)we now know exactly how Harry and crew will respond to all issues.

The narrator is Harry to me now. I can't imagine anyone else in the role at this point. All of Harry's charm and wit come through loud and clear.

What other book might you compare The Harry Starke Series: Books 4-6 to and why?

All the Harry Starke books.

What does Tom Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He tells the story in a completely beliveable way.

Any additional comments?

Love this series. Destined to become modern detective classics

The Beginning Sounds Like A Repeat Of Book 3

I almost sent this back because the first part was nearly the same as Book 3 in the series. I stuck with it and it got really pretty good. I ended up enjoying the intrigue and suspense in books 4, 5, 6.

Stark stories

Story line is predictable. No real surprises or twists. I do like them when I am at work as they don’t require a lot of thought and are entertaining. Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed them.

Why the comparison to Lee Child / Reacher ???

I love the Harry Starke series. I'm into #7-9 now. QUESTION: WHY is EVERY author/character compared to Lee Child / Jack Reacher (or Vince Flynn / Mitch Rapp) ?? Harry Starke is NOTHING like Reacher but both are great characters. The best "Harry" comparison I know of would be Stuart Woods' Stone Barrington. Both Stone and Harry are wealthy and forever bedding beautiful women while dealing with assorted bad guys. Other than being "studly" and wasting bad guys, there is nothing like the laconic loner Reacher... nothing whatsoever. I enjoy Harry, Stone and Jack... and Bosch and Elvis Cole and Lucas Davenport etc etc etc. The Legends of this literary genre are, of course, Travis McGee and Spenser.

Easy listening... engaging

If you like Harry Bosch, you will enjoy Harry Starke! I thoroughly enjoy this series. I can listen and still function in life... multi-tasking while listening. Nice job Mr. Howard! Can’t wait to start next 3 books.

Fun stories.

Fun story's. Real, Clean fun to listen to. Not deep, heavy novels, but just fun. However, mispronunciations from the reader fell like clangers at times. They were a bit distracting and off putting. Over all good stuff I'll get the next set as well.

Entertaining

I loved Checkmate (5 stars), the first book in this boxed set. The second book, Gone (4 stars) was entertaining also but had some darkness in it. The third book, Family Matters (3 stars), just wasn't my cup o' tea. But I do love Blair Howard's characters and writing style. The narration was good but not great on the female voices, though the narrator's expression and capture of the characters' personalities was very good.
