    One thought on “Il Poeta”

    1. Measured against the standard set by most crime fiction writers, this is a pretty good book, but based against the standard set by Michael Connelly it s sort of average, somewhere in the middle of the pack of the large number of books he has now produced This seems a bit odd, because the protagonist in this book is a newspaper reporter and Connelly was himself a reporter for a good number of years before he became a novelist One would think that Connelly would have this character nailed In truth [...]

    2. Oh, mid 90s, how quaint you seem in this book published in 96 with your dial up internet connections, faxes, pagers, landline phones, and new fangled digital cameras Perhaps the thing dating this the most is the idea that The Rocky Mountain News editors biggest concern is that they ll get scooped by another newspaper in the fast paced world of print journalism, and not that their entire industry will collapse and they ll be out of business by 2009 Of course, if all their reporters acted like Jac [...]

    3. Jack McEvoy is a newspaper reporter in Denver When his twin brother, Sean, a homicide detective, is found dead in his car by what s ruled a self inflicted gunshot, Jack decides he wants to write his story But, the he probes, his suspicions grow about it possibly being a murder As he continues his research, Jack lands himself into an FBI investigation that points to a diabolical serial killer While this case is referenced in early Harry Bosch stories, Harry doesn t make an appearance here But, i [...]

    4. I really liked this book It has a strong beginning and a lot of credible characters What I liked most was the fact that it seemed to end on page 450 I thought Ok, not a bad solution, but a bit obvious But then I noticed there were still 100 pages to go Finally I realized the end was not the end, but only a fake end, and then the real story was about to begin Very strong and surprising until the very last page.

    5. Wow, from the opening line Death is my beat to the chilling conclusion, this haunting tale grabs you by the scuff of your neck and never lets go Meet Jack McEvoy a reporter who makes his way covering murder stories Little does he know that the next story he will write involves the death of his own brother, an apparent suicide Jack has a difficult time accepting that his brother Sean, a homicide detective, would take his own life, further still he does not understand his brother s last words, wri [...]

    6. Some things are better left unsaid, so the saying goes.I personally disagree with that sentiment While very few topics are considered taboo any, a few cultural taboos still linger subjects upon which many writers still fear to tread due to its general unpleasantness Cancer used to be taboo So did adultery and homosexuality Taboos succeed in creating an atmosphere in which feelings never get expressed and problems never get solved Taboos generally make things worse.Pedophilia is, in some ways, st [...]

    7. This is less of a review than it is a sort of caveat to my rating the caveat being that I listened to this book I don t know if there are multiple audio versions of The Poet out there, or if they just love to re copyright things every few years, but the 1996 audible edition felt like it undermined the story s natural suspense Don t get me wrong, Michael Connelly s brand of mystery thriller writing isn t exactly subtle, but echo chamber effects made moments of tension feel downright hokey.That be [...]

    8. 8 10Michael Connelly is pretty much my go to guy at the minute for a solid crime thriller The amount of books this guy has churned out is quite impressive but so is the fact that there haven t really been any duds or none of which I have read to date and it looks like soon he will be having his own TV series for his most prominent character Bosch airing on the trailer looks good and I believe the first episode is free to air.This book is a standalone and introduces new characters and locations [...]

    9. I read The Lincoln Lawyer about a week ago and have been on a sort of Michael Connelly marathon ever since I like the writer and I like his books I think I still like The Micky Haller character best of his creations but this is my favorite book outside that series so far The Poet is a psychopathic killer who has been killing for a fairly long time Not sure how long because see, his victims have so far been mistaken for suicides That is they were until one of them was Jack McEvoy s brother Jack i [...]

    10. I received a recommendation from a member to read The Poet by Michael Connelly I am so glad I listened to their recommendation.This was an amazing novele best I have ever read by this talented author.Jack McEvoy was a reporter for the Rocky newspaper, who wrote about murder stories Death was his Beat Sean,his twin brother,a veteran Denver Police detective was in charge into the slaying of a University student, Theresa Lofton, found dead of an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound.Sean McEvoy was [...]

    11. My first non Harry Bosch by Connelly I m impressed Jack is a great character the plot was fantastic, especially twisty Great characters, very realistic I loved the way so many cases were handled how easily other interpretations could come of the results Good could be bad or maybe not Connelly really knows how to walk the gray lines made this quite a unique mystery thriller I m definitely looking forward to continuing his books Next up is Harry Bosch 5, Trunk Music.

    12. Rating 3.5 very pleased stars of fiveConnelly s Harry Bosch series will either make you want to read this book, or run from it I liked the Harry Bosch mysteries well enough, but I really respond to Jack McEvoy, Denver journalist and crusader for the rights of victims of crime.This is the first appearance by McEvoy He s hot on the trail of a cop killer, one whose talent for murder makes him able to turn a crime scene into a suicide scene Jack s brother, a homicide cop, is deadd naturally Jack wa [...]

    13. For her passivity in these horizontal moments was diametrically opposed to her demeanor in our vertical moments Quote from Jack McEvoy from The Poet.Sentences like that just capture my heart It could be easily said to be trite or ordinary, maybe, but sometimes I like ordinary, at times, anyway And I always, always love Michael Connelly s writing He s the best contemporary writer today, in my opinion.The Narrows was next on my list, and it was Tay, Anthony or Tiftoboy one of them suggested I read [...]

    14. This is a reasonably well written book and, in places, a true page turner with a solid premise That said, ultimately I couldn t get past the book s weaknesses For one, it s simply implausible that the victims homicide detectives, no less could be rendered helpless by such innocuous substances as cough syrup seriously combined with hypnosis of all things I had a problem with this, as I did with key character McEvoy s unrealistic involvement with the FBI investigation.Was anyone else bothered that [...]

    15. There were things I liked about this book, and on the other hand, there were things I didn t care for And on top of that, this felt so dated with the technology That is always a risk that doesn t seem to payoff in the long run I ll settle for 3 stars, even though in some ways, that seems extremely generous.First, I like Michael Connelly He is my third most read author His Harry Bosch series is one of my favorites I also like the way his stories are always in constant motion, and they are never b [...]

    16. Una novela polic aca que se desarrolla a un ritmo bastante lento y en la que no puede faltar la sorpresa final o plot twist t pico del g nero lo ves venir, aunque no llegues a adivinarlo sabes que est ah Me cre a muy lista y el autor me ha enga ado como a una china El final sorprende pero todav a no tengo claro si leer el segundo libro de la serie de Jack McEvoy.

    17. While there are lots to like in this story, there are a few issues that leave this listener unfulfilled The main protagonist is whiny, weak and dense at times Overall, a solid if not completely satisfying novel 7 of 10 stars

    18. It s been a long time since I ve read a straight up police procedural style thriller and I ve missed it I love the fast paced style, the clues, trying to figure things out along with the characters, seeing inside the system, all of it I don t know why I don t read of these, but I think this book has just reminded me how much I enjoy them, and why I should read of them I really, really enjoyed this one I can t give it a full 5 star rating, because I had just a few issues with it, but I will def [...]

    19. 2.5 stars perhaps Alternatively exciting and absurd, full of outrageous plot holes, with a protagonist who seems lost much of the time.I really struggled with this book, and almost put it down for good several times However, I was told that it is important for my next Harry Bosch The NarrowsAnd to be fair, about half of the book is superbly paced, but with the unsympathetic protagonist dragged along The extremely repulsive villain, and again the subject of view spoiler the abuse, mutilation and [...]

    20. I wanted to love this book I really did Mr Connelly is considered as one of the biggest crime fiction writers out there and after a thorough research I decided to start with this one I still remember the start, Death is my beat It gripped me but the hold loosened up and I decided that maybe crime fiction is not my cup of tea or any kind of thriller for that matter I took up Casino Royale before finishing this book and Lo the writing, the prose, the compactness,the solidity was much better The fi [...]

    21. Newspaper Reporter Jack McEvoy is having a hard time coping with the suicide of his twin brother, Detective Sean McEvoy Sean was found in his police vehicle, dead from a gunshot wound A short note was scrawled on the windshield Jack tries to deal with the situations by writing his brother s story But research into police suicides leads Jack to believe that his brother may have been murdered Jack begins to see a pattern between a series of homicide detective deaths They were all working on unsolv [...]

    22. Muy buen libro polic aco Empieza lento pero con una trama absorbente Asimismo, me result bastante pesado No se me hizo insoportable, sin embargo la combinaci n de la lentitud con esa densidad fue decisivo para ponerle 3 estrellas No obstante, como ven, la novela tiene mis 4 estrellas Sinceramente pocos libros de misterio me lograron sorprender ste lo hizo Por eso mismo se lleva las 4 Cuando se cre a que ya estaba todo zanjado, Michael Connelly sac un as bajo su manga que me dej obnubilado Muy bu [...]

    23. Outstanding This may be the best Connelly book of all It is the best that I have read, even though the beginning first 10% or so was slow and repetitive McEvoy is not as strong of a personality as either Bosch or Haller But the book overall is stronger than the Bosch and Haller books I ve read.

    24. Enjoyed this book very much hard to put down I will be reading books from this writer very soon Thanks to Cameron for picking this book.

    26. Book 1 in the Jack McEvoy seriesNot surprising Mr Connelly is a bestselling author The Poet is an intense and captivating mystery of a reporter s single minded pursuit of the serial killer who murdered his twin This was his first departure from his crime novels featuring Harry Bosch, we all came to know very well This novel was published in 1996 and won the Anthony Award and the Dilys Award the following year Why did I take so long to read it Too many books on my TBR list.The story is told mainl [...]

    27. This is an excellent novel by Connelly and a welcome departure from his Harry Bosch character I am a firm believer of not posting spoilers in a review and I will holdfast to this belief for the sake of future readers However, I am simply amazed at how skillfully Connelly combines detailed characterization with a progressively forwarding plot structure And, Connelly continues to cover all of the bases.Jack McEvoy, reporter for the Rocky Mountain News in Denver, is our main protagonist in this nov [...]

    28. Absolutely wonderful crime mystery suspense thriller I think it belongs in all four categories Jack McEvoy, a Denver based reporter, sets out to find what happened with his brother, Sean, who apparently has killed himself This sets Jack on a mission reporting job which starts in Colorado and takes him to Balti, Maryland Quantico, VA Hollywood, California and other locations He s literally here, there and everywhere and running into local authorities, FBI agents and many other characters all vivi [...]
