    When I read The Poet I was only buying used books and paperbacks. Since then I have become fortunate enough to be able to buy hardbacks. My entire library has grown to the point that I have limited myself to signed First editions, First printings, excepting a few authors who do not have signings. I do,now and then, replace a paperback with a signed HB when the title in question is exceptional.
    I have read all of Connolly's work. I deem The Poet one of the best, perhaps the best, he has produced. The particular purchase here was a good value.

    The Poet is not Michael Connelly's best work, and Jack McEvoy not his most compelling character. That said, the novel was truly suspenseful, though the "whodunnit" revelation somewhat forced.

    "The Poet "was just O.K. I enjoyed it, but
    the books he has written more recently
    are much, much better. Maybe he just
    needed to mature more when he wrote
    this one.

    Being the first time i have ever read Michael Connelly (being a James Patterson fan) I found it to be a bit slow in the first chapter but once this guy gets it in 4th gear ...strap in and hold on....This books had me ziggin and zaggin all the way to the last page....Never think you know the ending because he will throw you a curve every time...Great Book...im going to buy all of his books

    First book of Connelly's that I ever read and thus far has been his best! I loved this book and its sequel. His books overall are always good, but this is my favorite.
