I have been disappointed by Patterson's recent books, but this one has so many cliche's that are so "juvenile" I actually rolled my eyes while listening! Some parts read like it was written by a child. And the reader is so overly dramatic during her pauses and exclaimations, it was annoying. I am sorry I wasted a credit on this!
I liked the narrator for the first book PRIVATE much better than this one. The story in the first book was more engaging, more interesting and less predictable. Probably because this James Patterson wrote it with a different collaborator?
Parts of the book dragged and were so corny I actually rolled my eyes while listening!
Didn't like his voice changes to reflect different characters.
Listen to PRIVATE ..it was much better
I loved the reader and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Indian culture and families. The story follows the life of the main character, Goggle (?) from childhood to adulthood, and his day to day struggles, which, although not terribly exciting, were terribly real. I can't wait for the movie.
I would not waste a credit on this, and the fact that I did forced me to listen to the end. Multiple readers make it confusing to listen to and the story is bland. Dont bother....
