    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I just stopped listening to this one - it is the worst reading job I have ever heard. Not sure which narrator it is that is bad, Andre or Jay, but whoever is doing Alex is TERRIBLE. This is so monotone, emotionless, and even poor reading! Pauses at the wrong time, pauses when there shouldn't be any. This is terrible terrible work for a patterson book. AVOID this - seriously - avoid.

    I wish I could get a refund as I had to stop this audio. I wish I could rate 0 stars for performance which is too bad because the other narrator is okay --- just can't get past who is doing Alex. Seriously folks? How many millions are you making on the audio alone? Don't you listen to this?!?!?!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Couldn't get to the ending! Too poor of reading


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andre Braugher and Jay O. Sanders ’s performances?

    NO NO NO NO NO


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Not if the narrator was in it!


    Any additional comments?

    AVOID at all costs!

    What disappointed you about Private Games?

    I wasted a credit. I didn't enjoy this book. Bad writing and bad performance. Every time the killer spoke, I about fell asleep. The reader was bad. British accent which was hard to understand at times and he seemed to be bored with the book which made it boring for me.


    What could James Patterson and Mark Sullivan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The long personal reflections from the killer were so boring, I almost fell asleep, and I was driving!


    What didn’t you like about Paul Panting’s performance?

    Hard time understanding at times. He didn't seem like he was into it.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Private Games?

    Every scene where the killer spoke.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get a refund?
