Barely. Storyline is contrived, and the dialogue weak -- or has Jo Nesbo's writing spoiled me??
This did not seem like a James Patterson. The characters were not interesting and the story line slow to develop. I could not connect the pieces. Did not finish the book.
Really good read
It was really great how the two voices were distinctly different
the only negative comment I have is that for some reason three times during the listening o this book it jumped back to the beginning of the book and refinding my spot was difficult
The twists and turns about the time you think you have the plot understood it adds a new turn.
It did hold my interest . I found myself planing the time to hear a little mose of the book and then not wanting to put it down. When lisiting to a good book and when it is well read it is harder to put down than a paper book for me atleast.
They allowed me to enjoy the book with out feeling guilty that I should be doing something elce instead of reeding.
This book was so shallow and predictable but yet so completely unrealistic...This was a sophmoric "effort".....
go back to the basic and do his own writing if he hasn't forgotten his inspiration.
Make it realistic
I will not read any more of Patterson etal.....
The entire book was very good compared to some of his more recent books.
Since I enjoy going to movies a lot it kinda scares me to think if they made a movie of this book I wonder if it may cause copy cat crimes.
no answer to this
Patterson takes the time to lay the bait then hooks you
All of them
All of them
NYPD takes a bit to get started up but it makes. The book spends a lot of time building the characters in the beginning of the book - good news is the pace quickens and keeps wanting to listen.
Does Patterson even write his own books anymore or are they all written by the collaborators? This book was cheesy and read like a B movie. It was over predictable and seemed like something I had already read/heard but with different characters. The characters had no character at all. Gone are the good old days of mystery and intrigue from Patterson novels of the past. I might continue with Cross books but no more Patterson.
No. Too cheesy.
