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.

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.

not bad books but the box sets have an issue

The main problem is they treat all 3 books as one. You have no idea how far into the book you are because they don't distinguish one book from the other . Time left is always whats left of the whole 3 book series.

Ruined by the performer

The story is great...no lie....but the performance is so bad that I couldn't even get through the first book. I'll buy the books and read them as soon as I can get the narrator's voice out of my head.

Don’t expect more than it is.

The first two books were ok. Why does he always have to describe what everyone is wearing? The performance was intolerable at times. He tries so hard to do female voices that they wind up with no inflection at all. And please stop trying to do an English accent. Ditto for New England.

For anyone who expects a well performed or well recorded book, this is not for us! At times it is hard to tell if the same reader is reading the same part.
