This was a well-planned and intriguing story that I really enjoyed 90% of the way through, but I got the impression the author was rushing to meet a deadline at the end. I will continue to read and listen to the alphabet series, but hope the next one continues with hard-hitting, complex mystery all the way through.
I am a lawyer, and I found this book hilarious and strangely inspiring. I loved every minute of the book, and have thought about it a lot. Very entertaining.
The Lincoln Rhime books are all great. This one had all the character development and plot intrigue we have come to expect from Jeffrey Deaver. If I had any complaint, it would be that the plot was almost too complicated, but it certainly kept me guessing. I would heartily recommend this and any other of the series.
This book had an interesting premise: doctor invents sleep medication to help suffering father, evil businessman perverts medication to pursue world domination, doctor tries to save world from evil businessman. However, the story got sidetracked by a silly romance, and the relationship between the main characters was so stilted and disfunctional that I had to turn the CD off several times in disgust. Also, how many times can one author use the word "jerkily"? If you want to find out, listen to this book. I was not particularly impressed.
I heartily recommend this book for all lawyers who feel overworked and underappreciated. I loved this book! I laughed until I cried, but at the same time seriously rethought my career goals. This book was hilarious.
The title was the best thing about this book. The story was preposterous, the main character unsympathetic, the legal subplot laughable, and the plot practically random. I was good and tired of this book long before it was over. The author had some mildly interesting ideas but I'm afraid they were wasted on this book.
We read this book for our book club. Everyone enjoyed it, and it sparked a lot of conversation. Interesting and well-developed characters, complex ethical dilemmas, legal drama.
I listened to this book over a year ago and I still think of it often. It was entertaining, thought-provoking and sweet. One of the best stories I've ever read or heard.
I have a 14-year-old son with Asperger's Syndrome and felt so relieved to know that someone understands and conveyed the essence of AS to the general public. The book was both entertaining and enlightening. I would heartily recommend for everyone.
I liked Patricia Cornwall's previous books, but this one wasn't quite up to standard. The characters were interesting, but after a while the story line started to seem outlandish.
