no because all the suspense would be gone.
I don't think I ever read a book like this one. The big surprise ending was a real first for me. What a twist.
Well, I wouldn't fall asleep.
I haven't found that book yet.
I've read/listened to several of the Alex Cross novels. This was the least interesting one. The plot was slow to develop and seemed to be more haphazard than the others in this series. I wasn't involved as I usually am; the action seemed to jump around and didn't come together well. The audio was fine; the narration was clear.
Among the best
Bizarre and abrupt ending.
Adequate - tonal inflections occasionally hard to decipher.
Ending was forseeable and abrupt, it seemed to be a lead in to the next volume in the series - but not has not been in the first few chapters of
the way James Patterson explains everything in the finest detail!
nothing, he was great! loved the voices!
all of it
a MUST get!
The reading was well done and the story suspenseful enough. The character development was fair to good. The last chapters, however, were just too contrived and too ?stay tuned for the next thrilling installment". It did not make sense or fit with the rest of the book, almost as if the author realized there was no good explanation for how the bad guys he picked could have had all the info they had but he could not make up a convincing villain who could.
I didn't like this book, I couldn't get to the point where I saw his characters as real. I had not read any of his other Alex Cross novels, so this stuff with his kids, seemed pointless to me also. I kept thinking if I could make it to the end, then it would all come together. Which it didn't. I'm not a fan of so many senseless killings also.
Having listened to both 1st to Die and 2nd Chance by James Patterson, I purchased this book with great expectations. Those expectations were quickly deflated as I found this book disappointing. I didn't feel a very real conncetion with the characters and the plot seemed contrived. Needless to say, it simply was not worth listening to. I only got 3/4 of the way through and completely lost interest.
This book simply does not have the plot needed to draw one through its length, whether abridged or not. My recommendation, skip it.
