review 1: After the last book, it took me a few days to feel motivated to start a new one, and I carried this to work and back all last week, reading Metro or a magazine instead. I finally started it last night coming home, and was instantly delighted. Any book that starts "In the beginn...

review 1: John Connolly is one of my favorite modern writers. He balances high and low culture (no insult with the 'low' distinction as that's just what it's called), literary genius and commercial appeal. He writes horror that is enchantingly beautiful and captivating, and "The Wanderer i...

review 1: While Connolly captures the idiosyncrasies of New England perfectly, I found the myriad of characters difficult to keep straight, and hat interfered with my ability to follow the plot(s). The characters' stories I found intriguing were overshadowed by a myriad of gruesome voyeuri...
The Whisperers (2010)

English

review 1: Another good book in the Charlie Parker series. I love the mixture of styles in John Connolly books. Crime mixed in with horror and the paranormal. The characters are all well written and I love all the recurring people that are in every book along with Charlie himself. I would r...

language
English

review 1: I'm always on the lookout for books for boys in the middle grades--too young for YA and too good at thinking and reading to want the low level/high interest stuff. My 9 yr old grandson LOVED this audiobook. Lots of adventure and action, filled with not overly scary monsters, and ...

review 1: So I got a Charlie Parker mystery in mid stream. I have not read others. Like so many of these things, this is another ex cop with dead wife and child. He walks over the line, gets results and gets in trouble with all the official law people. He did not have sex with anybody so...

review 1: Charlie's Parker is in my top 3 favorite characters ever. I love this character and all of his varied and assorted friends. Unfortunately we lost one in this book which had to happen sometime, but it is hard saying goodbye. The good news is some of the bad guys are dead too and I...

review 1: I love John Connolly's writing, and I've really enjoyed the Samuel Johnson trilogy. This one wasn't my favorite of the three. As other people have pointed out, Samuel was kind of a side character in his own book, and I was curious what happened to some of the characters- such as ...

review 1: Charlie Parker isn't as gathered together as he usually is in this book. He is hired to look for the reason behind the suicide of a client's son. Charlie does some digging into the son's recent past and finds that his is not the only suicide from this man's Army unit recently ret...

review 1: Connolly has long been the only writer who could entice me into books with supernatural aspects. The Lovers and The Whisperers left me a little flat, and I almost gave up on him, thinking to re-read some old favorites. Good thing I gave him another chance. The Burning Soul has al...

review 1: This being one of my favorite series, I was fearful that I would open a book one day and be disappointed...sadly that day has come. Don't get me wrong, this is still a good book in terms of an average detective story, but Connolly is a great writer, weaving stories rich in heart ...

review 1: First Sentence: Let us begin with this: to those looking at his life from without, it would have seemed that Mr. Berger led a dull existence. Mr. Berger leads a quiet, uneventful life. An inheritance has allowed him to retire young and move to a small English village, spending...

review 1: I like this kind of young adult fiction so much more than your "Hunger Games" and "Divergent." It's clever without being smarmy. It's warm without being pedantic. It's smart without being obnoxious. It's genuine in all the right spots.In a continuation from "The Gates," Samue...

review 1: I love books about books, so this story is a natural choice for me to like. And I did like it, but just not A LOT. There's a distance between the narrator and the reader, which has a lot to do with Connolly's style, and that kept me from connecting more with the character. Still,...

review 1: Anyone who enjoys reading books should read this one. Its a short story and I read it in one sitting. Mr Berger loves his books, he leads a somewhat solitary life. His mother dies and he goes to live in her cottage in Glossam. One night he sees a young lady throw herself in fron...
