Too explicit in describing the violence against women. Felt he and co-writer were up against a publisher's deadline. Not a great read.
I love this story and the way the author put it all together. I was immersed from the beginning and when I realized I had but 30 minutes to go, I kept driving to hear the end. Well worth it.
I read 3/4 of the book and then deleted it. Took forever to get to the point and then it just didn't hold my interest. Loved the references in Venice but I don't see this author's draw.
Not sure why he used real characters in history. This story could have been about anyone in the old west. Story a little short. I wanted more....
I enjoyed this novel very much. The subject matter also upset me a great deal, historically speaking.Very well performed by the readers.
Not great! This book is basically completing the disappointing book 5. Could have been part of that publication. No big surprises. Bet you can guess what happens like I did as the story went along. I miss Bobby Carnavale as narrator.
This story goes on too long. I became bored many times. I don't like most of the characters in the story including Theo. His depravity starts out early and continues and escalades through out the book. He lives in a very seedy world, by choice. Initially I had much sympathy for him as a child abandoned by his father and then losing his mother in an accident BUT that didn't last long. I don't enjoy reading about adventures that take me down a drug lined corrupt life. And again, this story went on way too long with little redeeming virtues. Not at all what I was led to think this book was all about. I am at hour 25 of 32 and have decided I am wasting my time. I never quit a book but this one I cannot abide.
I would love to see Mr. Patterson write a novel on his own. His would be clones just don't have his magic.
I found this story line disjointed. I didn't really care about most of the characters. I wish Patterson and his Crew would stop being so graphic, sadistic and brutal. Skip this Patterson too. For all the praise he gives the Berliners in the Epilog, I felt the story lacking in German influence. It could have taken place anywhere.
This story is interesting and kept me guessing. Always enjoy Lindsay Boxer and her friends.
This was quite an historical learning experience besides being an intriguing storyline. Loved the characters and learning what life was like in Africa in the late 1800's.
