Just about everything. The main character was supposed to be in mortal danger throughout the book yet he was just…silly. You couldn't be frightened for him couldn't root for him. He was just awful. THe non-stop references to old movies and cancelled TV shows was simply annoying.
Not have tried to make it a comedy if they wanted me to take it seriously
He was actually very good. He was full of expression and had he been narrating another book I may well have enjoyed him.
Disappointment and irritation
I LOVE LOVE LOVE James Patterson. But this book was a total disappointment
Yes, this book was suspenseful, and a page turner.
The opening of the story and the end.
The ending was shocking.
Thought this whole premise a little weird at first. Then I really got into it.
A very good mystery. It could happen on all levels.
Mistress was Patterson's usual great writing. The constant barrage of trivia and bunny trails kept the story from taking itself too seriously. Which is a good thing because the premise, plot, storyline, and overwhelming tidal wave of circumstances and unbelievability really made the rest of the book an embarrassment.
The plot is horrendous. I really appreciate the up to date references that are included, but the storyline just flat out doesn't work.
Favorite scene? Dianna in an orange jumpsuit kissing Libby Rose in the back do the chauffeured car.
No. The only enjoyment I got from the book - Ben's inner dialogue and banter - just wouldn't work as a movie.
There are so many things to love about Mr. Patterson's writing. And I very much admire his profundity and his willingness to put his name, as co-author, on so many,many works. However, it seems his desire to produce books is overshadowing his ability to WRITE books. Please, sir. Slow down and do your best.
Probably continue reading JP unless they all turn into the useless crap this one was. I'm three quarters of the way done and it's complete misery to read this book. I highly recommend you don't waste your credit. That James Patterson has he name on this is an embarrassment. I've read every one of his books and doesn't even vaguely resemble his work. The characters are underdeveloped and unlikable, and the plot uninteresting and hard to follow. Let me again say, I'm a huge JP fan, but this....really? I'm over three quarters done and I couldn't care less what happens to these people.
Not without carefully reading the reviews and listening to a preview and probably not with this annoying narrator.
No. He's annoying. Terrible delivery.
I'd just scrap the whole story if this was all I had. Too convoluted by trivia, uninteresting details etc.... No drama, very little mystery.
Ugh...just ugh! One must wonder if James Patterson read this crap before putti his name on it!
Too predictable. The inner dialogue was a little too much, it became annoying. Basically too much what could have been an entertaining thing.
I thought it would be better.
Do not bother with this book; it is not what you think. Not a bit "sexy". Thoroughly boring; had to skip to back of the book to read the finish. Did not identify and did not care about the characters or what happened to thing. I read most things by Patterson, but this is really not for me......
This is a weird book, a lot of jumping around. I have never had a bad dook from James Patterson so this is the first.
Patterson- yes, Ellis- No
I have currently been trying to listen to it. Wow. I can't keep up. All these references to movies and their stars are totally distracting and boring. Maybe thats because I'm not a movie fan, I dont know. This certainly isnt your typical Patterson novel.
He didnt, it was the plot
