Would you listen to City of Bones again? Why?

No. I now know who dun it.

What did you like best about this story?

Further developed the character of Harry Bosch. Michael Connelly likes to add the twist at the end to stop you guessing who the murderer is.

What does Peter Jay Fernandez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I liked that Peter Jay Fernandez gave Harry Bosch a regular voice after the prior few books in the series portrayed Harry with a really annoying gravelly voice.

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

Yes but its too long to actually listen to in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Random bursts of overly dramatic music seem to appear from nowhere every now and then, when there is not regular music in the recording. This is very annoying!

Good story with Michael Connelly's usual twist.

Would you listen to Angels Flight again? Why?

Would not listen again as now I know "who done it".

What other book might you compare Angels Flight to, and why?

Similar format to other Harry Bosch books. Always a twist at the end, which is enjoyable.

Have you listened to any of Peter Giles’s other performances? How does this one compare?

The voice used for Harry Bosch was really annoying... gravelly. I have grown used to the previous narration of the early books in the series and Titus Welliver's narration in the more recent books. There was no reason to give Harry such a different voice for this novel.

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

Yes, but I didn't have time for one sitting. I listened to it over a few days.
