Too explicit in describing the violence against women. Felt he and co-writer were up against a publisher's deadline. Not a great read.
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.
I like the Sacketts. This story is especially sweet in Tell's quest to find his kidnapped wife. I really like David Strathairns reading.
The Sackett Family are interesting characters, all just a little bit different but all loyal and adventuresome. I enjoy L'Amour's low key storytelling.
Again, I find the everyday struggle of life back then a marvel, even when the main character is doing simple everyday tasks. L'Amour engages the reader in a quiet gentle manner.
