This was my first Patterson Book that I read. I loved it and have read it again. This book set a high standard and I have been disappointed time and again that the rest of the Alex Cross series isn't as good. I keep reading and listening to them in hopes of finding another Patterson book that can keep me total engrossed like this one did. I was so mad when the movie came out and wasn't even the same story - they took a great story and butchered it up for the big screen.
While I listened to this book, I found myself distracted by my hatred of the main character. It started out as dislike and then grew to hatred. The way he treats women, the way he lives his life.... He loses his job for stealing and then he is the victim???? This book was a real let down for me... I couldn't wait for it to end.
I agree with an earlier post about the reader. It was hard to distinguish between male and female voices. I found myself going back over parts of the book to figure out who was saying what a couple of times. I went through half of the book before I got into it. I almost gave up and turned it off and then the second half drew me in a little more. It was a decent story and could have been presented a little better.
