Review of 'The Lincoln Lawyer (Large Print)' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

I didn't know what to expect. I had never read a Connelly book before but struggled through the first episode of Bosch on Amazon Prime and came away from it only wanting to punch the main character in the throat. But I got into The Lincoln Lawyer immediately and struggled to stop listening when other things came up. I even subjected my son to it while driving to and from piano lessons because I wanted to take advantage of every moment I could.

I enjoyed pretty much every aspect of the book: writing style, characters, and even the narrator. I did read some of it with my eyes but the narrator added a lot to the experience.

I've already gotten the sequel loaded up on the kindle.

Still not sure about Bosch but Mickey Haller is alright with me.
