Mushy dialog and sterotypical characters, combined with jerky plot, makes this a trudge through sludge. I want my money back.
To each his own I suppose. This was my first Alex Cross book. If this is bad (as others indicate) I can't wait to listen to others. I found the book to be well written and the story line as believable as most other crime novels. The ending could have a bit more suspense, but I liked it the same. Narration was one of the best I have heard so far. This best seller is worth the investment and time. Cheers!
to listen and read... overall well done on Patterson's part. Alex Cross is no joke although I'd be willing to bet Jack Reacher or John Puller would give him a run.
And Buffalo George
Number 12 in the series answers a lot of questions from previous books. Our hero chases a bad guy who killed Cross' wife. Characters are exquisite. I liked Samson, who's a really bad (good guy) dude. Nana-moma is also a strong character. Read in series, these books form a great story--where's the next one?
I enjoyed the narrators, especially Sanders, but that's all I can say that's positive. After listening to Cross, I never read any more James Patterson books.
I enjoyed this book the story line was excellent and it bought some of the other novels together. I like that in all novels the importance of family is always part of the storyline.
Take the time to read or listen to this one.
