Added more to the plot.
Story was too short and to predictable. Usually James Patterson's books have more plot twists and more to think about and interest you.
OK. Not Annoying.
A good short listen for Christmas time.
I felt the price should have reflected the length of the book.
I thought I was listening to a Harry Potter book. Didn't make it pass the first four chapters. It's not the David Baldacci you are used to. Strange fantasy characters and setting. Looking to return it!
Good story line with plenty of twists to keep you interested. The reader could be understood. He had a pleasant voice and did a good job with all the different characters. Recommend to anyone looking for a good mystery.
You were kept guessing until the end of the book who committed the crimes. Lots of interesting characters, The reader often used a little person's voice. You couldn't have told the difference between the eight year old and the eighteen year old by her voice. She would often slip into a child's voice when the character was an adult. Her voice is pleasant but I don't like "baby talk" unless it's appropriate.
The story was just pathetic. Sounded like the author was looking for sympathy. Grow up and take responsibility for your stupidity. Get out of your dream world. There was no opportunity for the reader to show any talent. There are really no characters for us to enjoy or to get to know. Look for a better biography to spend your money or credits on.
The story was humorous but did not need to hear the F word so often. It did not add anything to the story.
Instead of only one interview where he came out looking good I would have liked a second one where he didn't look good. It would have made for a more well-rounded story.
I just spent almost 10 hours listening to a book with the MOST AWFUL ending. James Patterson does not need to leave you wanting more. Any of his faithful readers would read the next Alex Cross book even with the unresolved ending of this book. I felt robbed! So if you have a spare 10 hours to devote to this book, listen to it now. If your time is more valuable, wait till the next book comes out and listen to it them.
This narrator is my FAVORITE reader. I have friends and family who read this series and I tell them they are missing so much. When Susan portrays Roarke or Peabody it is truly classic. I love the irish brogue of Roarke and his family. This story brought many of the former characters together that we remember and love. I'm not sure that a newcomer would enjoy the story as much. But for the loyal fans this was a Thanksgiving treasure.
This was not a mystery, as I thought it would be from the summary. It was more about the mystery of witches and sacrifices and magic. The narrator was breathy and affected. I was glad it was short.
Enjoyed the story and the way it's told from different characters point of view - including the dog. Only complaint it wrapped up too quickly. I was stilll ready for more story but the book was done. Focusing on different guard dogs might make a very interesting series.
All the flashbacks got tiresome. Very little of the story is set in the "present". If you've read the entire series (which we have) probably a 1/4 of the story was redundebt. Another 1/2 were stories from his boyhood or being in high school. The present story line was good but there wasn't enough. It was a small part of the story but having one of the characters being from my hometown (Red Wing, MN) was interesting.
